    Issue 2nd day at the range

    first let me say that I am still hight impressed with the PT709, however today I had an issue, I did not have any failure to ejects or failure to fires, instead the slide would stay open and I would have to manually release the slide to put the bullet in the chamber, I asked the guy at the range what he thought he said " it prob needs more oil" well I used break free clp to clean the gun and it still had mild discharge of oil coming through the crevasses so I dont think its an oil issue. I was using federal ammo from walmart (the maroon box). Any help would be appreciated.

    Just a thought: If you had oil leaking from crevasses, you may have overlubed it - which would help in trapping unburned powder and other shooting debris, thereby gumming up the works.
    Not saying this is the cause of your problem, just that it could be.
    Alcohol won't solve your problems. Neither will milk.

    Due to the rising cost of ammo. A warning shot will NOT be fired!!

    It's a very strong possibility that this may be a contributing factor.

    yeah, the magazine needs to be bone dry. you only need lube on the rails, the trigger pivot, and the barrel.

    Yeah, you don't need a lot of lube. One drop on the rails, and any wear points you see. Work the slide to distribute the lube and wipe off ALL excess. These things don't need run wet like an AR-15.
