    New G2C feed issue

    Hello! I came across this forum while searching for info about the issue I am having with a new G2C. First, I have a relatively new G2S that works flawlessly. Second, I'm new to semi-auto handguns having owned revolvers in the past. Third, any insight you may be able to offer is much appreciated.

    My issue upon first firing the G2C is a failure to properly feed the second round fired. It is lodging in the chamber feed ramp or in one case partially in the chamber. I've loaded both mags and left them overnight, lubed the firearm and plan to return today or tomorrow to test.

    Thank you,
    badgenes

    Welcome to TA from Minnesota. Check the feed ramp for roughness. It may need polishing. That is all I have.

    Welcome aboard, from Las Vegas!
    As Kruizer says, polish the feeding ramp.
    Also, check for burrs on the magazine and barrel.

    Welcome aboard. The G2C's typically are known for feeding almost any ammo. But you may want to try a good brass factory load to be sure. Polishing feedramp is a good idea, also could be a bad magazine.

    Welcome from Pennsylvanis & Florida ! Now as for your newley acquired G2S ! we have one also,after thourough cleaning and range time It has been noticed by other shooting ours that they experienced same issue you have,we attributed the feed issue to limp wristing and grip control.After others shot our same gun I did another 50 rounds flawlessley.I would recommend a Hougue Slip On Grip under $ 8 for better control and practice being more aware of possible limp wristing. Our G2S feeds all ammo that we can get .

    Thanks for all the responses! I don't have the issue when firing my G2S, just the G2C but I will look into the limp wristing issue. I'll strip it and compare feed ramps between the s and the c this evening, taking it back to the range tomorrow.

    Welcome from Northern Illinois. Good idea to load the mags and let them sit for even longer than a day. Those new springs can be stiff. I hope that it starts to run well for you.

    Limp wristing is more likely with the G2S and its narrow grip, so I doubt that's your problem. I would give it a good cleaning - paying special attention to the feed ramp and chamber, take the magazines apart and clean them, then lube the pistol. I would be very careful about polishing the feed ramp. Lots of barrels have been ruined by attempts to polish the feed ramp. If the feed ramp is obviously very rough that could be the problem, though. Also try a different type of ammo. You may have run into one that the gun just doesn't like. That happens with semi autos, but in my experience it's pretty rare with 9mm.
