I took my 45 to the range yesterday and ran 140 rounds through it.
50 were a mixed lot of 230 ball from Remingotn, Winchester, and Federal that I purchased from an acquaintance that used to shoot a full auto Thompson, so he has a lot of mixed up, but new, 230 ball around in bulk ammo cans.
50 were Federal American Eagle 230 ball.
40 were Federal 230 Hydra Shock.
I fired the mixed up stuff first, all 50 rounds as quickly as I could reload with my maglula. No problems of any kind, and no discernible difference in accuracy in them.
Next were the Amercian Eagle 230 ball. In the last 10 rounds I had a FTF. Actually the slide just barely stayed out of battery. I light tap on the end of it sent it home and it continued for the next 4 odd rounds.
I then went for my 230 Hydra Shock. Had 2 similar failures to go into battery, but rectified with a slight tap on the end of the slide.
These are the first failures I've had with my FNP-45. I'm now left a bit less than confident with it. It has been my night stand pistol since after the first hundred or so rounds and always worked, no matter what I fed it.
I've seen a fair number of posts here and at arfcom by folks with FTFs coming later in the life of their pistol, or late into a range session.
I take meticulous care of my weapons. They are always cleaned and properly lubricated after each range session.
I like my FNP-45, but if it is going to start being fussy it can't stay in my house.
Any good advice for me on this?
I'll work with the pistol for a reasonable time, but I really need it to be reliable.
