KelTec PF-9 mag problem?

Was firing a bit off the deck this weekend.
I have only one mag for my PF-9.
By the time I got 21 rounds thru the gun, I had 3 failures to feed, in each case the cartridge was nose-down in the mag, with the rim up where it should be, against the feed lips, blocking foward travel of the slide.
To clear the gun I had to jam my finger down into the breech to push the cocked cartridge down into the mag. This, of course, allows the slide to travel and latch onto the finger. PITA, mostly.
Given the attitude of the cartridges when jammed, how likely is the problem to be the mag follower binding? Seems ALMOST certain to me.
After the first FTF, I disassembled and cleaned the mag. Seemed clean as it was, but went ahead and cleaned it anyway. Still had the problem.........

Suggestions?

Go over to either:
www.ktog.org or www.ktrange.com.

You can most certainly get your questions answered there.

Never had that problem with mine. Have you cleaned and lubed the mag recently? You might try that first, just a little Miltech or your favorite gun on a patch and run that through the mag before you assemble is all you need.

Just curious, were you using 147gr ammo?

try tweeking the mag spring....bend the last spring ear up just a little, to put a little up force on the front of the follower...some times just flliping the spring around will take care of nose dives...gpr

Suggest you call KT's CS and discuss problem. KT's CS is excellent and helped me with a mag problem of a different type on my P-11. The tel number is on the back of your owner's manual (321-631-0068).
