    M&P Shield 9mm FTE

    I've been noticing more FTEs on my 9mm shield lately. After a shot, the slide will cycle but sometimes fail to eject. I've had 1 or 2 stovepipes and 3 or 4 cases in which the old brass is still in the barrel.

    Today, I was shooting 115 grain WWB ammo. I don't remember what ammo I was using the other times.

    Does this sound like a weak ammo problem, or possibly an ejector issue? Thanks.

    I had a FTE the last time I shot my shield. This is the first time I had a malfunction with it. Got about 300 rounds through the gun. It was with USA ammo also.

    Sounds like it could be an extractor
    issue. A spring or the tip of the extractor
    maybe broken or worn. if its not an ammo
    issue. I had one do that.
    So far my shield has been working
    fine.
    When guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns.

    Can you hand cycle ammo through the gun?
