1/29/18 pro cdp ii 9

I was able to get to the range today, with all the CDP talk lately I felt compelled to show mine some daylight. It's been a few months at least since she's been out. I always put things up cleaned and lubed but generally re lube if there's been over a month between outings. Today I opted to just cycle the slide a few times and see what happened. I brought 100 Aguila 124gr FMJ and had 5 Federal 124gr HST left in a box. I ran the 2 Kimber 9 round mags I have and my 3 Wilson Combat 10 rounders. Santa had put an Uplula in my stocking which worked fine with the single stack magazines :-) I had one failure to completely chamber a round :-( it came around round 65 using the cheap Mexacalli ammo and a kimber magazine. The tip of the bullet seemed to hang up in the chamber and the slide was about an inch from in battery? It ejected right out and everything else ran fine. Maybe the lack of lube, a relaxed grip or the ammo? this was the only failure this pistol has had so... She's all cleaned up and ready to roll for tomorrow, I want to see how things go with a little oil on the rails :-)
...target was at 7 yards

Outstanding shooting! That target has a lot of heart burn! Get rid of those Kimber mags, stop shooting cheap ass ammo and you'll be fine!

What's wrong with Kimber mags, I have about 25 of them and they've never given me a single problem.

Kimber makes some really good firearms! Their magazines however - I've had nothing but trouble with them especially with the micro 9. When I got rid of the Kimber mags, all my problems went away. Just saying....

I threw all the variables out there for the sake of argument. The truth is the Aguila ammo has run fine in all my pistols. I believe Remington actually set up their production facilities? There's always a chance of getting a cartridge that's a little underpowered I suppose. The magazines have never previously been a problem. That leaves lack of lube or my grip? I'm going to put it at about 50/50 :-)

I'm a big fan of the Kim Pro mags and Aguila ammo as well. Both work flawlessly for me, but mines a .45

Love that Pro...I am going to get some Aguila for mine after my next paycheck. I know my raptor seem to like it and the Remington. I haven't had any issues with the mags except when loading cause they are so stiff when new.

The Uplula I have is designed for double stack magazines and they offer an insert to use with single stacks. It worked just fine without the insert for my CDP mags and makes getting those last few rounds in no problem.
