    I just bought this gun a few weeks ago from a reputable dealer. I attempt to chamber a round and the cartridge gets stuck and the slide doesn't go all the way forward.

    The only way to get the round out is to release the magazine and pull back the slide and the round falls out.

    :wtf:

    I own an H&K .45 Expert, H&K P7M8, and a safe full of firearms and have never had this happen.

    I'll try to make a video so you can see what's going on.

    I was going to take it back to the dealer but it's about 4 hours north of here and I won't be up there any time soon.

    Any ideas? :hsd:

    Are you riding the slide forward?

    Hmmm... possibly. I don't currently have it with me, but I don't think I'm doing anything differently than I usually do.

    It came with 2, I tried them both. I stripped the gun and put it back together. Holding a bullet to the loose barrel it looks like everything was okay.

    I bet I was just a retard this morning and was riding the slide. I hope so anyway :o

    I'll be home in a few hours. I was just messing around with it last night and I bet I was riding the slide (it was late and I didn't want to wake my house-mate up).

    If that's not the problem I'll make a video and upload it.
