Just got back from a little shootin'. I shot my C9 for the first time today. Put 100 rounds of Federal 115gr FMJ through it. I had 2 fail to feed in the first 8 round magazine, then it ran without a hitch for the rest of the 100 rounds. I alternated the 8 rd. mag and the 10 rd. mag. This gun is very accurate (6" group on a piece of scrap plywood) at 10 yds, which is all I shot today just to get a feel for the pistol. Also, I killed two 1 gal. milk jugs, 2 1/2 gal. OJ cartons and 2 Pringles cans lids. I am impressed with the performance and accuracy of my first Hi-Point weapon and may have to think of some excuse to buy another one.

I had loaded the magazines and let them set loaded for 10 days like you folks here advise.

I also put 2 dozen rounds (MagTech .32 S&WL 98gr. JHP) through the old H&R .32 just for the heck of it.

Did my shooting on a friend's farm and picked up all of the brass and left the place just as I found it.

Biff, the two "fail to feed" rounds... were they at the top of the fully loaded magazine? Or further down the stack?

If at the top, load em back up to capacity and leave them full. This is probably the most common issue with the HP
pistols other than the sights not staying put after they are adjusted...

Ex, I had a round in the chamber + the mag. Round #1 and #2 from the mag ftf. After that no more issues with the remaining 98 rounds.
As noted in my original post, the mags had been loaded for 10 days prior to this shooting outing.
I sure got tired of shaking all those bullets for the last 2 weeks. I think MoM is pulling my leg!

I'd still stuff them full and let them set. Also, sometimes the top edge of the mag lip (where it bends around to retain the rounds) is sharp from the (stamping?) machine that is probably a shear. On mine, I used some 800 grit wet/dry paper to smooth and debur anything in there that might restrict the bullet sliding forward and out of the magazine as easily as it should.

Try that and let us know if it doesn't help, or if it does. If'n it doesn't, I'm sure we can come up with some other ideas that may or may not solve it! ;)

additional thought: (though perhaps rare, lol)

What you are seeing is again, probably the most common issue as those springs are tight and exerting a lot of pressure, creating a bind on anything it can. Spring compression and smoothing the surface will usually solve it.

I really have no interest in a carbine. I am looking for a cheap 12 ga. pump shotgun to modify for home defense.

I would suggest either a Maverick 88 (made by Mossberg) 12 gauge pump or a Rock Island Arms M5 in nickel plate in 12 gauge.... both are inexpensive pumps that are very good for the money and I have owned and sold both so I have personal confidence in them to do the job.

If you run across a used one, let me know. I don't care about the cosmetic appearance as I intend to make it a mod project.
What's your opinion of ASI pumps?

Will do, as far as the ASI shotguns, I have not handled them personally but I did have another Turkish brand shotgun, and have had several different Turkish pistols and they make some very nice weapons for the money. I would not hesitate to use one for home or self protection
