Sorry for the crappy iPhone video

It keeps doing that with JHPs, but not the FMJs.
(note, I took took video with FMJs prior too JHPs)
FMJ live ammo

So I assume, even if it does push the round forward, it shouldn't result in FTF, right?

Thoughts?

in before CK_32.

My XD does that, a bit. But the real question is, once you cycle the snapcap, will the next round feed? Thats whats important.

Panda does the snap cap tilt up when you do this with your 226? Looks like when you drop the mag, the snap cap is catching on something while been draw out of the pistol? Have you tried it with live rounds? Never had a single problem with mine. Oh and your title on youtube is 2023 not 2022. Good job on the vid.

oops! lol I typo with the iphone lol

It never happened with my p226. I've tried with life ammo and sometimes it even completely pushes the round out of the magazine.

I think it's mags, they're still a bit stiff.

Does it reliably feed that second round after press checking?

it actually does, but I wouldn't wanna risk it since I'm considering it to replace my p226 as HD gun.

When the slide closes, its supposed to strip a round from the mag, is it leaving a bit of a mark on the round blow it? Its probaly just rubbing a little.

Like I said in my first post, my XD does this for sure, never has been a problem.

You brought almost the entire case out of the chamber when checking. Will it do it if you expose a lot less of the case? Usually if I press check, I don't bring the slide back that far... just enough to see brass. Not saying one is right and the other wrong -- I don't think anybody actually taught me the proper amount and I don't think I ever tried to research that, if there is a "proper" amount -- but thinking maybe that problem wont happen if the round only gets pulled from the chamber as little as possible while still allowing you to verify that it's there...

Take the 226 with you. There both 40cal? Right. Just want to see what you think of the different retorte between medal and the lighter 2022.

Give us a range report! I bought a Smith 66 instead of getting a Sig pro, wishing I had placed a deposit on one but theres none up here in Norcal.

As far as press checking, I do it on all my stuff but even on my Sig you dont need to retract it that far. I used to and encountered issues, the more you retract it the more likely it will have an issue with seating or magazine issues. I do it only enough to see just a bit past the brass and let it slide forward.

My guns do the same thing: H&K, Glock, S&W, etc. Polymer framed pistols seem to have this problem. When you do a "press check", it is pushing the top round in the magazine foward. When you drop the mag after a press check, the bullet that is a little foward is catching on the ramp of the frame of the gun and then the mag release. In turn, it pulls the bullet upward when you drop the mag. It's normal. A JHP round has more to snag than a standard FMJ, so that would possibly explain why it does it in the video. Snap caps have no weight, so that isn't suprising those want to fly out.

PS: Technically, a "press check" is done on a 1911 with a GI guide rod and plug because you "press" the plug against something to see if there is a round in the chamber. You can't do a "press check" on a gun with a full length guide rod....Its a "pull" check. A press check sounds much better than a pull check though. lol
