I put a clip downrange with no issues. Reload and 1st round is good but 2nd round jams. Clear weapon, fire, then jams again. Repeat failures for entire clip. Switch guns for a few mins and go back to PT709 and can fire entire clip with no issues. Reload and it jams again in same sequence. I've put over 500 rounds down range with no problems until this. Thinking it may be the magazine spring failing or perhaps an overheating issue. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Thanks!

I don't own one yet, but is it the same magazine? Maybe clean the mags for a start...maybe the recoil spring is reacting to the heat?

After you fire your first round, drop the magazine carefully, and see if the next round (2nd one) is pushed forward a bit. If it is, push it back to where it is seated. What brand and type of ammo is this?

Have you let anyone else try the weapon?
if not see if a experienced shooter will give it a go.
My inclination is that its not firmly being held, as in the dreaded limp wristing.
