TP9SFx jams **Update 11/5**

I know there's been a bit of a light jamming (mostly ftf) issue that's spoken about on the internet, but my local GS says Canik recommends to run 500 rounds of 124gr and the issue goes away.
Has anybody had this problem and worked through it? Did you need to send it back, or just do some polishing?
I was really surprised to see that knockonit got one. It was in another thread that I can't locate right now. How's your's running rj? I totally love mine right out the box, but I want to get this feeding prob out the dam way.

I shoot steel matches and I have 2 buddies that shoot them carry optics every Tuesday. Both have had issues with them. One broke a firing pin but after that has been 100% reliable with 124gr. The other guy has the exact issues that your are describing. It HATES winchester white box, anything else it runs like a top. He has put about 1,000 rounds through his. He was going to let it "break in" like Canik suggested and try them again, if the issue is still present he is going to send it back. Just thought I would let you know what I have been seeing.

Well, WWB was exactly what I was for sale in that weight, so I snatched it up.
So I'll be moving on to another brand for the rest of "break in" and see what happens.
Thanks weev
I usually have a standard that guns should run from the get go, but for the way this shoots, I'm willing to work through it.

Amen to that....My local GS tac-man says using a red dot needs some adjustment time, and not to give up too soon, it will come.

I'll check with them again this coming Tuesday and see if the jams are still happening as we shoot roughly 150-200rds a week. Should be broken in.

They do say they shoot amazing and the trigger is awesome for factory.

I'll back that, although it's my first 5" pistol barrel

I adapted to a red dot on my Sig MPX in around 3 minutes flat, but on a handgun, it was different.

Took me 3 weeks, around 150 rounds of ammo and I finally got it 2 weeks ago or so. It was odd as I always felt like when the dot was on the target the barrel was aimed at the floor, but it wasn't obviously.

I would suppose more like 3 seconds flat, it's a whole new world when you can weld your cheek right to the line of sight that includes the dot.
I have noticed, right when you think you're in the general neighborhood of the muzzle pointing at the target, you have to tip the muzzle downward just a skosh, and the dot pops right in. It's like it's a whole new grip angle. But I'm sure, with time, that will all become muscle memory.

UPDATE======
I put another 100 rounds of Blazer 124gr thru this, and it's still doing the same thing.I have some S&B 124gr also, but I not convinced that brand or grain is the problem now.
I found a Canik board and it has helped to diffuse some of the internet chatter of what is really happening with things like this, it helps to call customer service and get the scoop right from the factory.
So I contacted Canik and expect some sort of response today, as others have reported fantastik customer service. Others have had this problem too, and the running of 124gr has helped in some cases.
They were also talking about easy-break firing pins too, and it seemed to be a MIM formula problem. Replacement firings pins and different powered springs were sent, and it seems to have alleviated the problem.
I attached 3 different FTF pictures, in my case I'm hoping that these FTFs are a ramp issue on the barrel, as it always jams to the left. There seems to be 2 gouges/imperfections on the ramp.
What do you guys think?
