Default Gun jamming

So I got to shoot my first gun for the first time today! Exciting right well yes other than the fact my 92F Beretta kept jamming on me. I was using WPA 115 grain steel cased ammo and don't know if that was the problem. Or the fact my gun is used. I read the springs on my mags might be the issue aswell. Anyone have any suggestion?

Break it down, give it a good scrub, good lube, try again. If you haven't already done that. If that doesn't help try switching ammo, get a different type with some brass cases. Then I would start looking at new springs.

I've never had a problem with a beretta jamming on me, and I guess you could say mine was pretty well used too.

Default Beretta 92F

Check the magazine first. Is it a factory magazine, if not some mags don't work well in a beretta, if factory make sure it's for a 9mm. I've used a 9mm mag in my .40 with no problems but had feeding problems using a .40 mag in my 92fs. some times a old worn spring will be a little week, replace. You said it was a 92f not a 92fs. if it's the 92f, take it apart and suspend it by the muzzel end by your finger tip and then give it a rap with the barrel, it should ring. if it has any other sound don't shoot it, the slide may have a crack where the lugs meet the frame. shooting a beretta with a cracked slide may cause you to loose a few teeth

The Beretta 92/96 series are such good guns, I would suspect the magazine as well. Borrow, beg, or buy a magazine of known quality and it will probably solve your problems.

Darkenadam, we have an "Introductions" section. Stopping in and saying "Hi" will provide you a little insight about us.

I would recommend breaking it down and giving her a good cleaning/lubrication. Also I recommend trying some actual brass cased cartridges. If the problem persists I would take a look at the magazine and springs.

PS- Welcome to the community! I hope you enjoy your stay with us !

Darkenadam, why don't you jump over to the Introductions section and tell us a little about yourself?

I've never had issues with my 92FS, but I've never shot steel cased ammo with it either. Why shoot steel? If it's cost, WWB and American Eagle (both brass) are economical if bought in bulk. I stay away from Wolf.
