CZ PISTOL CLUBS > CZ Polymer Pistols, the new wave

Bad day at the range with my CZ P09

(1/6) > >>

besmirched:
Took me twenty years of reloading to have my first squib today.  I was shooting my brand new CZ  P09 and in the middle of a mag dump I had a boom.  The pistol locked up with the barrel stuck in the forward position.  Took me a couple of hits with a rubber mallet to free it up.  And sure enough the barrel was bulged.  I take full responsibility for my screw up and will have to send the gun back to CZ to see if they can help me out.   It's a testament to the quality and strength of CZ pistols that the only real damage was a slight bulge in the barrel, blown extractor,  and  a small chunk of finish off one of the forward rails.  The CZ P09 is built like a tank. 

The only excuse I can think of is after all these years reloading with a beam scale I used a digital scale for the first time.  I think I'll go back to my slower but trustful beam!

I have pics of the damage , but do not know how to download them to the site.

Squibs usually don?t cycle the slide.

besmirched:
Hmmm, don't know what else it could be, then.  Anyway, with full disclosure I am hoping CZ will fix the pistol.

besmirched:
Was going to order new barrel and extractor and call it good.  But CZ has out of stock on all P09 barrels.

Cajun Gun Works has a threaded P-09 barrel if that helps.
