I have this many mags for my JHP and 4595:

Image

About half of them I've had a while - buying a new 1 here and 1 there...
and the last bunch and the ProMag I bought from a kind gentleman here at HPT a few months ago.

And I have squirted some graphite in the mags - in the front and back sides mainly - to help things slide along.

In my JHP, my "old" reloads have worked really well with only the ProMag giving me a little trouble - it's still pretty new.
I haven't tried any of my "new" reloads yet...

The 4595 I got for Christmas so it's pretty new as well. And the 4595 is the gun I have the most trouble with.
And even with it - it doesn't happen very often.

So, I've had fairly good luck with the 45 ACP mags.
I have noticed the new ones can have a little burr or sharp-edge
on the lips where the bullets "scrape" their way out of the mag.

That apparently "polishes itself" with use - or a guy can use some fine-grit sand-paper and smooth them up some.

And it seems to me that the 9mm's are the "Touchy-est" when it comes to feeding problems and ammo choice.
Thats a "semi-educated guess" as I haven't owned a 9mm Hi-Point.
And maybe we just hear about the 9mm's more because they sell lot's more of them.

I'd have to say that Randy's post shows about the best thing a guy could do...
You'd sure get a good idea of what is happening anyway!!

And Blind finger - please let us know if you get everything working good or not!! (-:

I can't wait to find out what solves this problem. Randy's tutorial has me wanting to check my side to side alignment. I'm not having a problem, but smooth is fast.
I keep the lubrication to a minimum because I believe it attracts and traps dirt. Someone somewhere a hundred years ago told me not to use to much oil. When my 995 started jamming as described, a buddy took a look at it and exclaimed "Good God man, put some oil on this thing!" Problem solved. I still feel I might be running my firearms dryer than most people. Old habits die hard. When I got my Sccy back from the factory it had more lube on it than I've used on the gun since I bought it.
I guess it's possible that the magazines could all need adjustment. If they all came off the same run where the crimper was out of spec? Sure someone is supposed to be checking, but they're not $50 magazines.
Either way, it's gonna be something simple.

I will say it again. This forum consistently shows it is a great group of people that treat fellow members with care & respect. Sincerely appreciate all of you folks taking time to share with your experiences.
Randy, thanks for taking time to get the pics (worth a thousand words) posted. I will also heed your advice on the feed ramp. I will take a closer look at it when I clean & lube. My eyes just aren't what they use to be
Heck, with all the info i have here, I am totally confident I will have these mags running smooth in no time. I will let you guys know the adjustments made & results of my next range visit.

Sorry about the posts above that I had to remove. They were repetitive posts that were identical. Somehow, I posted the same post about 4 times in a row. Could not find a way to delete.

Blindfinger, I was going to go in and remove those "extras" for you but decided to let you keep your post count up! LOL

Blind finger...if you go to the handgun section and go down about 25 posts, you'll see my post "sending in the Sccy". It's a modern lightweight firearm with an outstanding warranty. I'm​ just not a good enough marksman with it to carry it with confidence. It's a Goldilocks thing. One gun is to small...one is to big. For me, the Sccys long double action trigger prevents me from being accurate under pressure. You can download a shot timer app for free and practice under time stress. You'll find your better with some more than others. The ones I'm good with are single/double action with fixed barrels like the Bersa Thunder. Currently I'm using a Polish Makerov. It's way heavier than the Sccy. Like I said, it's a Goldilocks thing.

I carry my SCCY every day and have encountered no problems. I've shot enough rounds through it that I'm used to the trigger and it's reset, I shot a bunch of rounds through the wife's new Taurus 709 then went back to the SCCY and the first round went BANG way before I was expecting it, just the switch from one pistol to another.
