    Hello folks
    I just acquired a 9mm tiki from SVI. Lovely gun. However ,I wish I could get to be as reliable as my old sig.
    Can some one give me a little good advice please.
    Firstly, I have just put about 1100 rds through her. She will not go into battery at least 4-5 times in every 100 rds. Secondly the last round in the magazine would be in place and she would go into slide lock. Either an sv mag or a dawson mag makes no difference. Also she suffers with a fair amount of light hits.
    Any ideas? Can some some recommend a fine smith who can give me some advice please.
    thanks

    Advice? Yeah, send it back to SVI and have them fix it, Considering what they cost, they should be goofproof.

    +1 on what vesmcd said...

    Considering what they cost, it should have arrived with NO issues WHATSOEVER...

    SVI should send you a paid overnight label and a loaner...

    my hi cap tiki titannium

    I managed to call SVI and spoke with Tami.
    She said that SV would be willing to fly a company rep to fix the pistol.
    Now that's service.
    Thank you guy's
