It would be nice if you too took this argument to PMs.
I could care less what you two think of each other.
And let the tread get back to the S@W.
you are, of course correct FI,
let’ recap a bit shall we?
as the OP, a veteran 20-30 year FFL, initially pointed out on a SD9VE (a model which has been on the market +/- five years)
- the firearm’s mags had difficulty loading 16 cartridges then buldged to the point the mags alledgedly couldn’t be loaded into the firearm,
- during his ‘testing’ of the firearm using 10 mags to run 1k of ammo though the firearm all the while the firearm’s slide mechanism allegedly consistently failed to seat itself when the mag was empty,
- where the OP allegedly attempted, but apparently was unsuccessfully, to affect repairs on the firearm
that cover it?
back on point...
the OP has now, after doing due diligence on the WWW, reached the conclusion from some random sites ALL the firearm’s malfunction(s) are directly attributable to the “MAGs”!
ALL ten mags, running 1k of ammo, means each mag should have been used at least 7 times, are ALL deficient and caused the firearm’s slide mechanism to consistently fail...sorry this member finds that to be quite a statistical anomaly!
is that a ham sandwich i smell in Denmark....
oh, OP, after 20-30 years as an FFL you might wish to locate different distributors - most will accept their defective merchandise back for legitimate reasons~ tho not if the unit hasn’t been putz’d with by novices...
btw, please advise where you are posting the used and defective SD9VE (remember selling a firearm as new isn’t ethical) for sale to ensure our members don’t inadvertantly buy the hunk of metal you putz’d with.
is that back on track enough?
