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

    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

    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.

    I just started having this same thing happen to mine...And the screw is not loose at the extractor...Just started happening and only have 200 rounds threw the gun....Called kel-tec and they said send the gun-in by mail,but the turn-around wait is 4 to 6 weeks...This-SUCKS....Like they are not being pulled-out of the barrel and the next round is jamming up under the spent-casing....Like I say...This...SUCKS.......:confused:......
