Does the micro-9 do controlled feed?

I've slowly cycled different ammo and some appears to slide up between the extractor and the boltface, other round pop out uncontrolled.

I don't notice any difference in reliability of either although I haven't really put it to the test under harsh conditions.

I'd be more concerned about how the gun runs under actual shooting conditions.
Bigdog and 1000RR like this.

The "pop outs" are glitches from you hand racking it, when the gun is actually running it is going to slide it up under the extractor like you are seeing.

KC - you're right. I removed the spring and guide rod and cycled the ammo through by pulling and pushing the slide at a fast pace. It ran real smoothly. If it was popping out ahead of the extractor I would have felt the resistance when the case chambered and the extractor would have to grab the rim.
