It was a G model .40 and I loved the feel of the gun, and it proved accurate after I went through 50 gettin'-to-know-ya rounds.
The thing is I had some problems with it and I need someone to help me figure out what went wrong.
Just after the first 50 rounds I had several failures to feed. The ammo was FMJ flat point and I would have rounds just jam themselves up against the top of the slide. So hard that the it would strip the copper off the area and gouge the lead underneath.
The shop guy said I must have been limp wristing. I don't know about that as I was using a two-hand grip. Though after talking to him I paid extra close attention to my grip and the problem went away--almost. It happened just one more time when I was using a one hand grip.
Second the slide failed to lock back after one mag. Again the counter guy said I must of limped wristed. I thought maybe I rode the slide release.
Finally if I loaded it with ten rounds (the max allowed in CA) and with the slide forward the mag would not seat. The range guy said I should have pushed harder. It was not my gun so I was not going to force it. The thing is I was using as much force as I dared and I could not get it to 'click'. So what was going on there? I know it can be difficult to seat a full (well a castrated CA approved mag anyway) mag with the slide forward but it should go in without having to exert enough force to open a badly stuck lid on a pickle jar.
I really wanted to like this gun. And I did like the way it felt and shot but I was disappointed in the several failures it had.
I'm open to taking the blame for the problems, but in my defense I've not had any of these happen with any other pistol I've fired.
And yes I realize it is a rental but a gun that is designed for police and CCW should work even if it has been handled by a bunch of different people.
