It was out of battery* sorry! I had to smack the back of the slide to get it into battery. That's not part of the standard operating procedure in loading a semi-automatic.
Yeah I know..what's happening with my polymer 9mm's...they're dropping like flies. lol
Interesting. I've seen issues where it didn't chamber. IMO, and I realize Fishbed will come attack me in my sleep for saying this, I think the P99/PPQ do have one design flaw: a very steep feed ramp. Now some guns have the same phenomenon, but the nose of the round barely hits the feed ramp at all while chambering so it's really a non-issue. With the P99 and PPQ the round makes a rather steep climb to chamber, and I've seen weaker loaded ammunition or weaker cycling cause issues with this.
If it keeps up you'll have to send it in. Curious if you still send it to S&W or Walther at this point given their contract expiring.
