Honestly, feeding & extracting problems are EXTREMELY COMMON in the Tec / AP 9mm series guns!!! I've *NEVER* seen one that has been able to go 100% through a full magazine without SOME kind of jams...

Could be the extractor, could be the ejector, it could be a LOT of things... Need more info. Does the fired casing stay in the chamber? Does it extract, but not eject, and get crimped/stovepiped in the action? Etc... Is the action cycling completely (bolt going all the way back)???

In reality, I think you'd maybe be hard pressed to find *ANY* good gunsmiths that would be willing to work on your AP-9, and you also have to ask yourself - for a ~$250 gun, is it worth it?

Your best bet would be to trade it for a firearm that works.

There's a good chance Sir Randall may pistol whip you with it if you bring it into his shop.

FWIW, those things need a lot of lube and, IMO, are chock full of problems even when they are running right. I had one at one time and it was a challenge to get through one magazine without a failure. you may try the excessive lube route and if that doesn't work, you may consider heeding my initial advice.

I've been thinking. what about SBRing it? a buttstock just may help it cycle better. it has been my expereience that a good portion of FTE are from "limp wristing". that is alot of pistol to hang off the end of your wirst, and fatigue sets in fast.

just a thought

Must... resist.....

I just can't help but want a ghetto fabulous 9mm....

C'mon guys! Let the ganstas have those guns. That way when they pull them on you, you will have plenty of time to get your drawstroke perfect while they f*ck with the bolt trying to clear a doublefeed...

Not the most sugar coated response, but. the most honest...

I have a PM-11 I got a while ago and it took 2x the original cost (from the now defunct FAC) to get it to feed 100%. It also required a fair amount of polishing of the MIM parts...

Folks in the gun industry call that an "educational experience".

It could be a whole host of problems you are trying to correct... the question is, how much time and money are you willing to part with to fix the problems?

This is the first time I've ever heard of a FTF with a Tec-9. They were always 100% on Miami Vice - and never ever ran out of ammo.

You can't polish a turd. And, as Norseman1 is implying, if you can get that turd polished, you will end up with one expensive polished turd.
