A couple problems have occurred since the purchase of a brand new 2011 STI Trubor. (these problems always occur during competition and not practice) Bullet Everglades Ammo 115 JHPs Winchester Primer HS-6 Powder - 8.3g OAL - 1.165-1.167 PF - 172-175 Problems 1) My first encounter of a problem is when the gun completely jammed during a steel match. I ran about 25-35 rounds before shooting this match. After shooting 2 rounds, the slide completely locked. I tried to release the slide lock, no budge. I took the mag out, I tried to charge (wouldnt move) and release the slide (wouldn't move) , no budge. I tried to move the slide forward to its natural position (pushing the slide forward while holding down the slide lock lever), no budge. About 4-5 other shooters were trying to release the slide. After about 10 mins, the slide released and went to its natural position. (It was really rough when i was charging the slide a few times) I then tried to shoot the same stage again, after the first shot, it happened again. I don't know what the heck is going on at this point. I stopped using the gun and used another shooters to finish off the match. After the match, I disassemble the gun, reassembled the gun and then the gun was able to shoot 30-40 rounds without a problem. (I stopped shooting and went home) 2) I shot a USPSA match Saturday and my first stage, this same problem occurred BUT, the gun almost cycled completely. What I mean is that after my first shot, the gun was stuck right before chambering another round. i pushed the slide forward (with ease) with the next round and shot. I don't know whats going on with that but it happened twice. 3) Empty shell casings getting stuck between the Optic and the slide. After shooting a round the casing will get stuck so that the slide couldn't chamber another round. costing me 5 seconds each time. Is this because of the ejector? Do I need a gunsmith to work with it? I don't want to move the C-more optic side ways. (not a fan of that). 4) Shooting and hitting slide lock with one bullet in the mag. I shouldn't be going to slide lock if i still have 1 bullet in the magazine. Magazines STI 140mm Magazines with Gram guts. I get nervous for each match and each stage because I don't want these problems to occur but they do and costs me a lot of time. Any suggestions? You all are pros and i just started shooting open! If you need pictures, i could demonstrate whats happening for each one. If I didn't describe each one in detail, just ask questions! Thank you guys for all of your support!
