Kel-tec 380
Any one no why my 380 keeps jamming its not a cleaning problem all my guns get cleaned after the range. Any ideas???

How is it jamming? Fail to feed? Stove pipe? Need more details. Are you using cheap ammo?

It leaves the casein inside does not eject and try's bringing another round in

Is your extractor broken or the spring weak?

No they r fine i saw some where to un screw the extractor and put some type of sealant and tighten it back up. It happens sometimes every other round

Hmm. Tough one. Can you post a bunch of pics?

I have one and it does NOT work well with Herter's bullets. It jammed almost every time I tried to shoot it. I switched to Remington and I have not had any problems.

Sorry we have some of our other firearms in the pic too. My .380 is right next to the .410 shotgun.

Normally, if not the mag, and the extractor is functioning correctly, it is the ammo.

I haven't had any problems with mine.

Thanx guys problem solved the screw where the extractor was loose. So happy
