I have a high point c9
9mm and it seems to jam while firing.... Any ideas on why?
Get a better grip when you shoot it.
That's what those do
What he said. Use a high grip. Also try using different ammo. My cf9 likes to eat it all, but yours might be different.
How does the grip help?
Some pistols will jam if not held tightly. How old is this pistol?
Some say the shooter has to shoot about 200 rounds before a new C9 settles in.
I bought it about a year ago.... It was brand new.... Maybe 50 round through it...
Yea keep shooting. It will line itself out. It took mine a couple mags to set good. After breaking it in never a jam fte or ftf.
Although the highpoint is a blowback action, if you have too much play in your hand it will disapate some of the energy from the action. It happens more frequently in recoil opperated pistols. Just be aware of your grip and see if it helps.
My son has a hi point .45. was jamming every shot. He was using cheap Federal American Eagle ammo. He switched to CCI Gold Dot and hasen't had a problem since.
so..you need some Peanut butter with that jam?
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.
Yeah, you have to really have to push against those Hi-Points, or they will jam. But if you can't sort it out, send it back to them. Best warranty service in the industry.
Now that you Mention it, I only had one ftf with it but my wife had three or four the first time we shot it...thanks for the advice guy's
Because its a Hi Point
Yea, there seems to be alot of issues with glock pistols. Our local pd hates their issued duty glocks.
Besides both glock and hi point look like milled bricks.
Hi Point trashing begins now.
I'm surprised it took this long.
At least everyone waited till the OP got his question answered. Plus no one said the 9mm round sucks & it should have been a .45.
The only problem I've noticed with Glocks, is that they're perfect so there's not much to do to them. =)/=(
