Hello to all.
I am Rubenv from Argentina, just new in this forum.
My first question please: During the last shooting session on Saturday my M9A1 (from 2011, about 1500 shots), failed repeteadly to prime the bullets. It was the first time I got so high number of failures.
I use bullets reloaded of my own, with a failures average of 2%..
Any suggestion about the cause will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

1 of 3 things are probably happening .
#1. You have bad primers. Or something has happened in the reloading process.
#2. You have broke the tip of the firing pin and you are not getting primer strikes .
#3. Which is the normal the gun has not been fully disassembled and thoroughly cleaned up.

1500 rounds is nothing for the pistol their service life is 50k to 80k rounds
I have one now that has almost 10k and it's 100%

Case, Thanks for your answer.
I will try #3, field cleaning looks not enough.

You can look up Tnsteyr on YouTube. I have cleaning videos there.
