so..you need some Peanut butter with that jam?
I bought it about a year ago.... It was brand new.... Maybe 50 round through it...
By your description It sound as if you are a new shooter, the malfunctions you are having is most likely operator error not your pistol.
what is it doing or not doing ? do you have a FTE (Failure to eject) or FTF(failure to feed/fire).
as yes you must control the recoil. and to do that you must be in control of the firearm by the use of a secure grip but, not overly tight.
how ever as it as been said don't do anything to the weapon until you have put no less than 500 rds. down range.
