It's Always Something

Mom had me test out the new P32 she bought. Good thing I did. It decided it doesn't like ejecting brass.

I was using Wolf Gold 71 grain FMJ. Since I was in a time crunch before having to run errands, I didn't get a chance to experiment. Tomorrow (hopefully) I'm going to try it w/ different loads and magazines JIC. If it continue to no-workie, I'll give Kel-Tec a call unless someone has a better solution.

I've never had a problem with mine running cheap FMJ and Federal Hydrashok. It does gunk up after about 50 rounds, but a quick wipedown and lube and it is shooting again. It might also just need to be broken in. If it doesn't start behaving after a box of ammo or two, Kel-Tec will fix it.

A buddy of mine had the same problem and somehow traced it back to the magazine. Kel-tec provided him with a new one. Might want to go over the mag for any defects.

Look up "fluff and buff", you'll get a procedure for smoothing out the Keltec's rough spots, increasing reliability. My P3AT needed a new extractor, sent no charge by Keltec. (I wish they would do a bit more QC at the factory, but it is still a good value)
