Try this:



Make sure you keep firearm pointed in safe direction, finger off trigger,and preferebly do this at a range.

1) Load Magazine

2) Lock Slide back on gun

3) Insert Magazine

4) Either a) press down on slide release and let slide close that way or b) pull slide to rear and let go.



See if it chambers this way. Some rounds will get caught up if you pull back and close the slide slowly.

I've had this problem with ammo that is either too short or the shape

of the nose bullet is too blunt or angled instead of rounded.

It's not terribly unusual for a pistol to sometimes choke on a particular ammo, my MP40 has fed everything that I have thrown at it so far. If you find an ammo that doesn't work in your pistol, it's a good thing to know so you can avoid that ammo in the future.
