    i just bought glock 22c 40cal and when i test fired it this weekend it always jams within 10th to 15th rounds. I used armscor FMJ and i fired 100 rounds. I never had a complete 1 magazine (15 rounds) fire without jamming. This is disappointing to me considering that it is my first gun. WHY IS THIS SO? WHAT DO YOU THINK WENT WRONG? WHAT SHALL I DO ABOUT IT?

    Moreover BOGS, what part of the gun shall i grease/oil? wala kasi sa maual instruction gun cleaning eh.

    Lubricating the field stripped firearm
    To properly lubricate your Glock pistol, after it has been thoroughly cleaned and dried, use a clean patch that has been slightly dampened with a quality gun oil. Wipe the barrel, the inside of the slide where the barrel hood rides against the slide and wipe the barrel lug at the bottom of the barrel. Apply one drop to each of the slide rail grooves (once the slide is moved on the receiver, the oil will be distributed to each of the slide rails). The most important drop of oil is placed where the trigger bar and connector meet. Failure to properly lubricate the junction of the trigger bar and connector can lead to premature wear and a very heavy trigger pull.

    Do not over-lubricate your Glock. Glock pistols are designed to operate properly with only small amounts of lubrication. Over-lubrication can cause the gun to collect large amounts of burnt and unburnt powder, brass shavings, dirt, lint and other foreign matter that can affect the proper functioning of your gun.

    WARNING

    Do not put oil inside the firing pin channel, around the extractor, on the breech face, any where near the barrel chamber or feed ramp, nor in the magazine. These areas should be kept clean and free from lubricant. Lubricant in these areas can cause contamination to primers and result in a failure to fire.

    It would help if you tell us what kind of jam you had. FTE, FTF, stovepipe... No amount of oil would cure stovepipe, mostly operator's fault. Did you had a buddy with you when you shoot your G22? It's advisable to bring someone with you next time and let him shoot your pistol. If you have the same jam then I would say its the pistol. But if you both have stovepipe, then both of you should start practicing dry fire.;)

    I'm assuming you're having failure to extract or stove-piping problems, FTE's.

    The simplest cure is to make sure your new gun is oiled and cleaned.

    The second is to fire it weakhand and see if the problem increases. If it does, you're limpwristing. Totally normal for a new glock shooter, just shoot it more if you can.

    Lastly, since its a compensated model, you may need to have custom loads that are loaded hotter. This will allow the gun to cycle better.

    ;)

    HTH. Goodluck.

    the bullet won't feed in the chamber (ayaw na umangat ng bala from the magazine) so the gun thought empty na magazine kaya nag pullback "lock" na ang slide and i have to pull the slide back further for the bullet to feed in and unlock the slide. ganun ng ganun deprensya, sometimes magkasunod na dalawa jammed.

    i dont understand it. im thinking baka magazine spring ang deprensya but considering that its new, mukha not probable at his moment and considering further that it happened (jammed) in both magazines.

    anyway, what are FTE, FTF, stovepipe?:cool:

    Maybe you're accidentally hitting the slidestop with your thumb.

    FTE = Failure to Extract
    FTF = Failure to Feed
    Stove pipe = empty shell caught in the ejection port

    What Batangueno said. However, when it does this, naka-engage ba ang slide lock sa slide such that you need to pull it down to release the slide?

    If not, nasho-short stroke yung slide. Try the cleaning and oiling. Kung ayaw pa rin, try hotter ammo. Call PB and ask kung meron pa sila nung mga Fiocchi's nila. Kung magpapa-reload ka sa Armscor, indicate mo dun sa reloading slip na "major loading" kahit 9mm. ;)

    That's the black plastic thing which is directly below your first round. And directly below that is the spring.

    No.5 yung number ng follower ko.

    Anyway, is it advisable to always maximize the load of d magazine which is in my case 15 rounds evrytime i fire/practice in the shooting range or whenever i keep it for home defense purposes?

    Ive heard kasi dpat daw mga 10 rounds lang para hindi daw ma strain yung spring ng magazine at tatagal ang buhay. Is this true?
