Troubleshooting Causes And Remedies

If your pistol is properly used and maintained, malfunctions will rarely occur. However, if such a situation does occur, please observe the following instructions.

CAUTION - If a malfunction occurs, the possibility of unintentional discharge is substantially increased. For this reason, carefully observe the Safety Instructions already mentioned above. Keep the pistol pointed in a safe direction, do not turn the pistol against your body or anyone else's! Do not place your hands in front of the barrel!

If you use your pistol for self-defense, or in law enforcement, please acquire so-called "dummy cartridges" and practice fast clearing of malfunctions as described below.

Malfunction

Possible Cause

Remedy

A round has not been fed into the chamber or the slide has not fully locked with the barrel.

Magazine is not fully inserted or is damaged. The pistol or cartridges are fouled (dirty) or too heavily greased.

Insert magazine properly or change magazine. Clean the pistol and cartridges and wipe them dry or as case may be slightly lubricate.

Misfire

Defective cartridge

Firing pin hole fouled (dirty) or unproper lubrication agent used under low temperature conditions.

Pull the trigger again. If a discharge is not initiated, follow the Safety Instructions according to point 19. Disassemble and clean the firing pin or use a low temperature lubricant.

A shot sounds "weak" combined with failure to eject the cartridge case.

The primer has been activated but no powder load was inside the cartridge case.

Unload the pistol and check that the bullet is not lodged in the barrel. A subsequent shot could cause damage to the barrel.

The spent case has not been ejected.

Cartridge chamber, extractor or ammunition dirty, or unsuitable lubricant in low temperature environment.

Clean and wipe the pistol dry or lubricate lightly with a suitable agent. Use new and clean ammunition.

If you cannot clear away any malfunction in the manner described above, entrust the pistol to a competent gunsmith for inspection and repair.
