well People i bought a 24/7 pro ss today and i went to the local firing range and shot about 90 rounds (.45) well the problem is i bought 100 rounds. This gun is new not used it seems that when i would pull the slide back and manually exspell the round on the back of the "un-shot" round you can see where the firing pin has hit the bullet but they did not go off now i know im using monarch ammo cheap stuff but thats all my local academy had and i only had about 1 hour before the range closed so not time to run around ( Houston traffic) does any one have any ideas??????????


ammo maybe(I hope this is the problem)
or do i need to send it in

Not trying to be smart, but did you strip and clean the gun first? Having 2 .40's and getting back into this I shot several brands for the brass, price and practice. I shot one box of these and had no problems other than being awfull dirty and not as accurate I felt. Clean it, clean out firing pin with spray cleaner or solvent and air, lube it and try again.

Even if it was on display and externally cleaned by the shop, I would bet that the internals had the shipping lube. I know we cleaned for about an hour to get the inside of my first PT111 ready to fire. Of course cheap dirty ammo would only clog up that lube more.

Well people I cleaned my .45 for about an hour or so i did notice that in my rushing manner to fire my new pistol i missed a little packing grease being that it was new and i will never ever buy monarch in the .45 cal
i had no problems with my sisters .40/357 sig Glock with the monarchs but i guess my 24/7 is a picky eater
not only that but at wally world (wal-mart) they carry UMC Remington 50 packs for $14.87 thats $1.50 more than i payed for the monarchs and my 24/7 didnt even studer i put about 35 rounds thru it.


Also does anyone have any say on a good 230 gr. hollow point

and to runninONempty i live in NW Houston

Texasmaan:

A good source for .45 ammo is at Walmart on 249 & Spring Cypress or Wal-Mart on 1960 just before 290. They have Blazer Brass for 9.47/box of 50. I don't notice it being any dirtier than WWB, and functions flawlessly.

Would go cheap on hollowpoint. That's the round you will use for self defense.
Look at the factory reload section, quote by NYPD in AZ;

I'd recommend any type of ammo that is bonded such as the Gold Dots, Federal Tactical Bonded, or Winchester Ranger T-Series. These 3 make up the majority of ammo that LE agencies issue to their officers. You can't go wrong when choosing police ammunition.

So it's doing better after cleaning? Anyone should clean a gun before shootin. Some may do different to "protect" for shipping, etc. Just clean it ! People buy um, shoot um, and don't know. I did forget to tell you acadmey told me the Monarch was a rebuilt ammo, That is was what I told.
Keep it clean, and have fun, you will do fine. Good shootin.
