100 rounds today

Postby Mark38090 » Tue May 02, 2017 3:16 pm

Put 100 federal fmj through my CPX2 today. First 70 were flawless then started having trouble with failure to extract, the more I shot the worse it got. Gun was filthy so I'm thinking it was just dirty. When I got home to clean it the extractor is perfect so next trip to the range I'll pack along a cleaning kit. I sure do love this pistol.

This is about the amount I've seen with the sky before hickups.
They are not known to be range guns.
This said I tend to run ~100 rounds at the range also.

Found info on some other forum sites about cleaning. Has anybody used non-chlorinated (?) brake cleaner on your SCCY? Or any other firearms that you might have. What is your experience and feed back on this? Interested if you had a good outcome and continue to get positive results? Thanks for your input.

I've noticed that my sccy starts to act funky around~50 rounds.
A quick clean-up does the trick.

My Bersas do this too. I can get about a box or so through them, then they get "picky". :wink:

Some spray oil and a boresnake might be handy in your shootin' bag.

my experiences with sccys ,keltecs , and other small pistols are the same . the recoil springs and slide weight is not enough to
overcome dirty chambers and ammo thats just a little off . full size guns will tolerate alot more of that . leave the `i never clean my gun`
stuff to the glock enthusiasts . i think its important to keep them lubricated too, they will run dirty, but not dry-------------
