FS9-Trouble in paradise
« on: May 08, 2017, 01:31:36 AM »
Well...after a year of great service my FS9 has suffered a major issue.

I have posted before how much I like my FS9 and I still do. I hope the lifetime warranty lives up to it's promise.

Wife and I went to the range today shooting my usual 115gr. Perfecta 9mm ammo and .22LR in our handguns...DBFS9, Sig Mosquito, M&P22C and M&P22 Fullsize.

First magazine, Second round the slide locks back in the rearward position and jams. The tab that holds the recoil spring broke. The recoil spring assembly went sailing downrange. :main_cry:

I'm hoping it's just a matter of getting a new slide. I contacted DB. We'll see what happens.
I hope it's soon as my FS9 is my EDC gun.

As an aside. I set a record today by having 2 handguns fail during the same trip.
My Sig Mosquito blew the end off the slide as well shooting Reminton Thunderbolts.

It was a bad day.... :main_cry: :main_cry: :main_cry:
