    Shot my M9-A1 today again. Had some Cor-Bon 115+p lying around. Prefer GD 124+p so might as well use it up to see how the Steyr handles it. I've shot 300+ of GD's and CCI aluminum with 100% success so far. Third round of Cor-Bon and it quits. Took it apart to find the firing-pin jammed to the rear. As I was leaving I see a CB case on the bench with a blown primer. Could it be? Yes it was. When I finally managed to pry the firing pin out it was black. Three metal disk fall out of the channel also. Don't know how many layers of metal there are in a primer. But it could have been all three. Don't know for sure. I did continue to shoot the CB with my G19 and it did fine.

    After getting the primer parts out of the channel I gave it a good cleaning. There were a lot of metal flakes and gunk in there. Trigger feels way better now that it's clean.

    kengps,

    I also had a primer end up in the firing pin channel on an M9. I wasn't sure if it was from a Cor-Bon or UMC shell. I haven't had any problems with Winchester or Federals.

    Regards,

    I've seen pictures on Glock Talk where someone was testing 9mm ammo, and they had blown primers on the Cor-Bon 115+p also. Never seen it with other ammo.
