Rami - brass in the face

    I recently bought a CZ Rami 9mm. I took the gun to the range and seem to have problems with spent brass being ejected straight back at my face, with tremendous force (ouch!). I realize this can happen with any gun but it seems to be fairly consistent when shooting the Rami. I used to have a .40 Rami and did not have the same type of problem, nor do I have it with my other semi autos. I tried a few different types of ammo and tried modifying my hold on the gun but nothing seems to help.

    Any advice and assistance is appreciated.

    Usually a bit of work on the extractor will cure that ....Why did you go from the 40 to the 9mm ?

    Odd - the loving wife's RAMi is consistant to the right. Ask Mike Eagleshield at CZ-USA?

    .40 was just a bit too snappy for me. I'm gravitating more and more to 9mm in my semi-autos.

    I emailed Mike and already got a reply (on Saturday to boot!). He suggested it might be an issue with the recoil spring. I'll continue to work with it and will see what happens. It's a pretty smooth gun.

    I have shot my RAMI for nearly a year. I have never experience that before....BUT...I repeat...BUT...just the other day...two cartidgges hit me squre in the forehead...hard. I only shot about 25 rounds out of it that day.
    So...once you've fixed the problem...PM me and let me know how you fixed it. Do I need a new recoil spring? Higher poundage? Poundage? I like that word.

    I gave the gun a good cleaning and took it back to the range. Through it still flings brass in multiple directions it only tossed one back at my forehead. When cleaning the gun I paid extra attention to cleaning underneath the extractor. I wrapped a cleaning patch over the edge of a playing card, put some cleaning fluid on the patch and rand the edge underneath the extractor. Maybe this is why the problem is gone? I'd have to ask a gunsmith. I actually decided to give this a try after hearing a gunsmith helping someone with a similar problem (different type of gun) by showing him out to clean underneath the extractor.

    Although the Rami feels a bit wide in my palm I'm still amazed at the accuracy. I was getting some pretty good center-ring hits from low-ready to target. I think this will be a keeper.
