    G2C Jamming issues

    I purchased a Taurus G2C 9mm yesterday, lubed it up, and headed to the range. On the first rack it didn't load completely, so I pressed on the slide and it racked. Fired my shot and it didn't rack again, but this time it was severely jammed. Cleared the jam, racked again and same thing happened, wouldn't fully rack. This happened several times over 25 rounds, so I decided to call it a day. I was shooting monarch 115 gr ammo, so I'm hoping it's just finicky with this ammo. Any thoughts?

    I would first suspect ammo.
    Then ck mag- the spring can be in backwards.

    Also if you have more than one mag- do the malfunctions happen with all mags...or just one?

    I personally have not had an issue with Monarch, but have with Winchester, Tula and Fiocchi.

    I tried two different mags, tried with less rounds in the mag vs full too. I bought some white box to try today, but first I will disassemble and give it a good cleaning. Will let y'all know how it goes

    Welcome to the forum from Northern Illinois! Maybe polish up the feed ramp a bit with some Flitz, Mother's Mag polish or similar. Don't work it hard enough to change the geometry, just to smooth the finish more. The magazines are notorious tight when new. I usually try to load them full and let them sit a few days. The light poly frame pistols also require a good firm grip to provide the pistol a good stop for the slide to operate well. Let us know how it goes!

    I got a new G2C in February of 2018. As I always do with a new gun, I cleaned and lubed it, and made sure everything was in working order. The first time I took the G2C to the range I had no problems. Everything worked, no jams at all. I took it home and cleaned it up again. The second time to the range it started having problems. I let a friend who came to the range with me, and was new to handguns try it out. After a couple magazines, the G2C started to jam. At first I thought my friend was limp-wristing it, so I shot it myself. Sure enough, it was jamming on me too.

    On closer examination, I found that the slide was not fully "Returning to Battery"; meaning that it would eject the spent shell ok, but as it slid the next round into the chamber, the slide would stop about a quarter of an inch short of a full forward, fully closed, “seated” position. This prevented the gun from firing the next round. I could pop the slide forward by hitting the back of the slide with the palm of my hand and shoot the next round, but that's not a good remedy; and it is totally UNSAT for a carry weapon!!!

    When I got it home, I broke it down again and gave it another thorough cleaning, and examination. I thought perhaps there was something wrong with the recoil spring, or maybe the slide guides were bent, but everything seemed ok. Then I closely compared the G2C with my slightly older PT-111 G2, and noticed that the exterior of the barrel on the G2C was not quite as smooth as the G2. The G2 seemed smooth and polished, whereas the G2C was a little rough and unfinished. It also appeared that the tolerance between the muzzle of the barrel and the slide was just a skosh too tight. I took some rubbing compound, and polished the outside of the barrel. I rubbed it down as best I could, especially near the front where the barrel flairs out and slips into the front of the slide. When I finished, it still wasn't as polished as the G2, but it was much smoother than it was before.

    I lubed it again, and even put a little gun grease on the outside of the barrel. I took it to the range, and shot 200 rounds through it without a hitch. I've taken it to the range several more times, and haven't had a misfire since. Now my G2C is a dependable carry weapon.

    BTW, welcome aboard, from Las Vegas!

    Thanks! I disassembled it and compare to a few other pistols today and it looks like the feed portion of the barrel has a burr on the left side which is casing this. I also took a different box of Winchester white box and loaded the mags, then cycled them by hand. Still had 3 jams as before, but not near as often. A little elbow grease on the feed tube burr and I think I will be good. Thanks for the advice!

    I just purchased a G2c last week the first 50 rounds through of blazer fmj ran fine. The next 50 I had 4 failure to feed, then I shot some of my defense ammo it was like 5 out the 50 failed to feed, so far over 4 different types of ammo and 300 rounds through my gun in a week and a half I have had well over 25 failure to feed and for this being a conseal carry gun don’t leave me pretty confident that if will work when I need it the most..

    you do not say how experienced that you are with semi automatic firearms?
    have you had anyone else try the weapon out?
    if so what were their results?
    operation of a semi auto depends on several factors, the ammo (brand ,type of projectile), the magazines, the weapon itself and its quality, and of course the shooter.
    but certainly for me the number one issue to address with any carry weapon is reliability.

    You're right.
    You have to have confidence that your carry weapon will work when you need it, and so far your G2C is failing way too often.
    Have you tried polishing the barrel like I described above?
    That little bit of work changed my G2C from unreliable to a very reliable weapon with all types of ammo.
