    Wiped the oil off, and went shooting. Did some informal 100 rounds with Lawman 40 s&w 180 gr. TMJ. The Rami failed to feed about six times. Round seemed to catch on barel ramp, slide open. Actuating the slide fed the round and all was fine. Perhaps some more rounds will break it in.

    One time the hammer landed on the slide because the slide was shy of forward by about 1/8 inch. A gentle push forward, and all was well again.

    Accuracy was good when I did my part. The 638-2 shoots a bit tighter at 15 yards.

    Carried the Rami a few times. Packs really nicely, and I totally love the ergonomics of the safety.

    A friend let me compare with the Sig 357 fired from a P239. The recoil was very similar. Perhaps the Rami 40 had a snappier and healthier recoil. I fell in love with the Sig. Friend said it has NEVER mis fed. I would bet the Rami would pack better for me on my motorcycles, however.:D

    Fired many different arms today:p , life is good, God bless all of you on THR.

    Sounds like a good start with the RAMI. I have about 300 rnds of Win 165 FMJ, with zero failures, but had 2 FTF with Federal HST3 JHP rnds (extra wide cavity on these JHPs, and maybe too much mag spring pressure). The mag springs are very "tight", one mag will hold 8 rnds OK, but the second mag is still very tight with the 8th round. However, I've had no problems with Win 180gr JHP rnds with either mag.

    I would suggest trying some different ammo to see if your FTF rate goes down or is eliminated.

    As for the .357Sig rnd, my 40 RAMI has much less muzzle flip than my G33 or even the G32, in my hands.

    Good report.

    I'd still be a bit hesitant to carry until all the bugs are worked out though.

    Our club psychologist (really) showed up at the IDPA match with a RAMI 9mm today. He was shooting it pretty well, but it gave a number of failures to eject. Looked like the 9mm Blazer was a bit lightly loaded for it. It was doing better by the last stage, we are hoping it just needed some "breakin."
