Failure to go into battery?

To keep this short and simple I have a used C9-A2. Whenever I go to chamber a round via dropping the slide to go about my day concealed carrying the round always chambers fine. However during a range session, after a few mags, when I drop the slide to chamber a round it fails to go into battery and will either sit ever so slightly out of battery or just a few cm out of battery, and after that range session I noticed that it has the same issue. However, after trying to chamber a round repeatedly it would fully go into battery every now and then. Dont know whats causing this and its a mildly annoying issue if I'm being honest.

I think it’s been said above, but I would strip it and clean it. Then put about 100 rounds through it. That way you can make sure it is broken in. If the issue persists past 100 rounds I would be very concerned. Being used and a carry gun I would want to take it down and clean it since many people don’t vet or brake in their carry gun, nor do they fully clean them. If the issue is still there I would call Steyr for maintenance but it sounds like this might be maintenance/ brake in issue from the previous owner.
Just a suggestion. If you can’t get a replacement recoil rod assembly free from steyr usa, consider the guild rod assembly from big taco. I have one in my m9a1 since I bought my m9a1 new and never had any problem.
Good luck.
Agreed, I can 2nd this. I’m using some of his gear and it’s been good to go.
