As usual, I begin by apologizing if this topic has either (1) been talked to death, or (2) I'm posting this in the wrong section. As far as I can tell, this is the place to do it. Got a new G30 some weeks ago. Ordered grips from Pachmayr, and picked up some .45 auto snap caps. Dropped one in the barrel, eased the slide closed, and found it wouldn't close all the way. Had a similar experience with caps I used with my G17, so I closed the slide with a bit more velocity and it closed completely. However, unlike my 9mm caps, the .45 caps didn't extract when I pulled the slide back. Also, there was clearly NO contact made with the firing pin. Only way I could get the thing out of the barrel was to field strip the weapon, and then carefully pry the cap out with a butter knife. It wasn't SUPER tight, but definitely snug. I tried the other caps in the package and had the same result. The caps have "Pachmayer" printed on the side, but it says "made in Italy" and look very similar to the 9mm caps I bought from Cabellas. Can anyone tell me what the heck is going on? Is there a simple way to deal with the problem or am I outta luck? I can practice dry firing with my G17, but I really want to work with the G30. It's become my absolute #1 firearm.
