Most of the time I see people bitching non-stop about these, but once in a while you find someone who claims theirs is 100% reliable. Recguns website claims that it is very reliable with pointed FMJ ammo. And what about the KG-9 open-bolt model? I would assume that since it is the original TEC-9, it would be more reliable than the later closed-bolt models.

They're a piece of shit. Jam O Matic. Get a Thompson in 45 ACP and get on with it. (Or an AR which has better range)

I had one. Didn't have any problems with it. It eats Blazers like candy. My Para Ordnance malfunctioned more then the tec9. [img]albums.photopoint.com/j/View?u=1245816&a=11138786&p=38887462&Sequence=0&res=high[img]

I own 2 postban AB-10s, And I have not had a problem with eather when using factory mags both are 100%. But they both jam about every 10th round with aftermarket mags. They are a fun plinker for the money not accuraate worth a $hit but fun to blast away with. If you go with one get as many factory mags as possible now sense they went out of business prices have went up but watch the auctions you can find mags for around $40 each. I say get one to piss off the antis sense it has the evil aura around the TEC and they wont get any cheaper sense they went out of business. I find the postban AB-10 for around $150 all the time with a factory 32 rounder. SCAR

Also most of the people who claim they are junk dont own one or have never owned one and just go off of what they have heard or if they have shoot one usualy it is with junk mags. Which Like I said is probley the main reason the TEC got the Jamomatic rep. Not saying the people who flame it dont own one but if you read the posts of people who go into detail they usualy own one and defend it. And the People who flame it usualy have a 1 line smart A$$ coment. Just my thought not trying to flame anyone but what can you expect for $150 bucks if it jams every once in a while it is ok with me for the price. SCAR

To be as bad as they are, that is what was used to kill the sheriff down here in Dekalb County Georgia. I could not believe my ears when the news said that...

Have never seen a Tec 9 but did have a Swedish-K in 1968. Looks similar but mine had a wire collapsible stock. Just played with it, found issued M16 better. Found the 9MM rounds extremely hard to find. Issued side arm was a Remington 1911A .45 ACP.

I've got 3 younger brothers and two of them each own the post-ban AB-10. Both guns broke firing pins...within a week of each other. Me, being the "mechanic" of the family, offered to fix the guns for them...I called Intratec, and they shipped 2 new firing pins to me at no charge, no questions asked... Service was great but... These guns "are what they are"... ......CHEAP GUNS Nothing more than throw aways... Fun to shoot, but as earlier stated, not at all accurate... Just my $.02

They're craptacular! Junkarific! I had one, and while it was reasonably reliable, it was not accurate. Fun if you like making a lot of noise, but if you want to hit something, you'd be better off throwing the gun at the target. On the bright side, they do make liberals hysterical, so they're not all bad.

i used to say exactly that to anyone who asked me about mine. till i got tired of it and traded it off. fun toy to tinker with, but that's about it.

I've fired them and they were perfectly reliable. the question is, do you want a gun with horrible balance, a bad trigger, bad ergonomics and a sissy chambering just because its reliable? Personally, if I was to have a shootout at 25 yards, I would be more than happy to use my 1911 against on of those funky things, any day of the week.

I just bought a preban with 1 magazine for 50 bucks. Never planned to fire it but for 50 bucks I do not expect much. I figured I can make a few dollars on it or use it for swapping material.

ok, anyone have any experiance with theintratech 22s taht take ruger 10/22 mags. taht would be fun
Link Posted: 6/7/2001 6:43:32 PM EST
I don't know why everybody dogs these things so bad . My friend has one and the only time we have had problems with it was when it was BRAND NEW . Ever since it has been broken in it has functioned fine . It is not all that inacurate either . Unbalanced yes espically when shooting with one hand but it is a hoot to shoot from the hip . He does have a preban model and original factory mags , maybe this makes a difference .

Did they make any arrests on that yet? [red] PRK

Heard a discussion at the range once about jamming. The rangemaster said that these guns are pretty sensitive to ammo & recommended avoiding range ammo or other reload. He recommended factory ammo only. [red]PRK

I had a Tec DC9. It worked everytime I pulled the trigger. Accuracy sucked though. Here is a pic of it. [img]http://4.40.8.2/guns/tecdc9.jpg[/img] [img]http://4.40.8.2/guns/tecdc92.jpg[/img] Also have a Tec22 Preban. This is a fun and cheap to shoot gun. It a plinker alright.

I had a [blue] Jam O Matic [/blue] oops I mean TEC-9 It was a Hunk of scrap . I liked the mags the real problem is the [red] Firing Pin [/red] its a flat pin and It gets dirty easy If the tec-9 had a AR-15 style firing pin I dont think any one would complaing about the gun because it probily would not jam or mis fire .
Link Posted: 6/7/2001 11:33:33 PM EST
Sorry fellas, I just had a brain fart from what Rob877 said. Has anyone ever thought of retooling AR-15 components with a shorter, tube-style recivever to make a RELIABLE and somewhat accurrate pistol (maybe take cheap pre-ban mags, like stens?) BTW, I think the TEC 9 is fun. I shot one, but I wouldn't own one, or even admit to it;-) Just my .02

i hear they are junk but man are they cool looki.id buy onecheap just to have it.
Link Posted: 6/8/2001 3:51:14 PM EST
The biggest problem with all recoil bolt guns is keeping them clean. The KG-9 / TEC-9 is especially touchy. Nothing even semi-flat pointed will run in these guns. If you convert it to autogettum, clean the chamber area well every time you come back from funland. A little teflon juice does it wonders, too.

Thanks Chicago. RE: the 9mm AR. inaword: EXCEPTIONAL ! At the bald knob shoots every year, this is the Subgun that wins it. The first mag adapters I encountered were in 81 at the SOF convention in Scottsdale, Ar. The maker was from New Mexico, and his company was Royal Emblem Arms. The adapter took STEN mags. Since then, Colt has produced the AR in 9mm as a "Sportsman". You have to use one FA to really appreciate what it is.

Let me put it this way: I bought a PT92 to shoot ALL the ammo that didn't fire through my tec 9. I still have the PT. I sold the tec9 at the first opportunity. Funny, believe it or not, I sold it for $500. I still feel bad about that but that's what I was offered. What could I say, the fellow had cash in hand. I said "Are you sure" and he said "look here's the cashola". I said OOOKAAYY and left as fast as possible soon after. I would not buy another!!!
