    PX4 Storm

    I'm having an issue, fired fine first couple hundred rounds but now it failing to feed every other round. Don't feel a burr on ramp but don't mean it's not there. I haven't polished it yet but that's my next step. Just wondering if anyone else has had this issue.

    I don't own a PX4, so my advice may not be applicable. Until someone with actual experience comes, at least, you will have something:
    1. Slide, recoil spring assy may be too dry or dirty. Field strip and lube per Beretta's recommendations. Kind of obvious but, had to get it out of the way.
    2. Recoil spring is at fault, got too weak too soon. I highly doubt it but, but not unthinkable.
    3. Mags: factory v. after markets? Many failures to load are caused by bad mags (i.e weak springs, filth, poor design) . It would be good to know the problem follows a specif mag.
    4. ammo: reloads? Steel cased? JHP v. ball? My 92FS eat everything. But I have no experience with rotating barrel designs.

    If you could share more info, what caliber, what PX4 model? What were those 200 rounds you fired? Russin steel cased are notoriously dirty. Did you lube it before going to the range? Some guns come rather dry off the box.

    Sorry for lack of info. It's a F series, .40. I clean and lube after every outing. I shot Winchester white box bill nose on both occasions.

    Don't know where bill nose came from, damn iPhone. It was ball ammo

  6. I have a .22 that is picky about the ammo. mostly shoots anything fine but will not chamber occasionally with certain manufactures. try changing up your ammo first (after double checking cleanliness of all parts) just see if one mfg works better than another.

  7. A buddy from work has a PX4 9mm and had the same issue. His was picky with ammo. he was firing the cheapest rounds he could find and was having feed issues. He's running PMC's mainly now and hasn't had any problems since

    I've put about 4,300 rounds through mine (full size Storm, .40, G model). Independence, white box, Rem UMC, Federal American Eagle, all range ball ammo. Also shot Winchester Supreme Elites (my carry ammo) and Golden Sabres. Never a failure of any kind - UNTIL -
    Bought some Fiocchi range ammo. Every 4th or 5th round, fail to feed. Don't know why. I shot it up and will never buy it again.

    Point is, until I got the Fiocchi at the 3500 round mark, I would have sworn to you that the gun would eat anything.

  9. Its the ammo,,i have one ,

  10. I have a PX4 storm and I had the same problem, your ammo is loose in the mag. After I load the mag I smack it down on it's backside as to force the ammo to align. Just a couple smacks and the ammo is all aligned up against the back of the mag. Once I started doing that I never had a problem firing any type of ammo. I use the cheapest ammo I can find and not one problem once I started doing that to my mags. It almost looks like I'm packing the mag like they do when your packing a pack of cigarettes. Like I said just hold it vertical and smack it down on the backside or flat side and do that a couple times after every time you reload and that should fix your problem. Hope it helps.

    Thanks Cape that did it. Never had that issue before except in the army with old metal m16 mags
