Am scheduled to have it gone over by Cylinder & Slide, but that's a couple months off. Every few weeks, i put another few magazines' worth, in an attempt to find a particular type of ammo that works well with it. Haven't found one yet, which tells me the chamber is still a bit too tight and/or the timing's still off a tad.
My thoughts/review on this P380 might well be bogus, but the proof is in the pudding: it is indeed having reliability issues, the jams not being a figment of my imagination.
Speer Gold Dot and Buffalo Bore +P work well in my P380.
