I am having a problem with a new MP compact 9mm purchased today. Everything looked good with the gun and after cleaning it I was planning to cycle a few rounds through the action prior to taking a trip to the range tomorrow. Thats where I ran into the issue...while I have no trouble pulling the slide back all the way when there is no round in the chamber, with a round in the chamber I cannot pull the slide back far enough to extract the round.



I spent quite some time trying to carefully get the live round off the extractor, and eventually was able to get it to drop down through the mag well with some downward pressure while letting the slide move forward.



I again field stripped the gun, found everything to be properly in place, and again noted that the slide came back appropriately without a round in the chamber. Chamber a round, and the same issue above arises.



Any thoughts?? Thanks.

clean the area where the extractor is with a brush make sure there is no metal filings there from the brass of a round or a bur of some kind. fire atleast 200 rounds through it at the range. If it continues call S&W and they will take care of it!

I cleaned the gun again with special attention to the extractor...still same problem. Do you think there's actually a change it wont FTE if I take it out to the range?

Rack the slide back like you mean it. What I have seen is the nose of the bullet hits the barrel hood and will not come out, if you do it slowly, but if you do it forcefully it flies out like there is nothing wrong.



On the range it will likely run like a champ.

Score one for common sense...it took quite a yank, but with great force it will eject. Thanks guys. I imagine it will smooth out with some use....

Hey acs62c, I had the same problem with my .40c. I sent it back to the factory and they replaced the slide. I think the ejection port cutout was too small on mine. The nose of the bullet was getting jammed between the front of the cutout and the ejector.



I got it back in about 2 or 3 weeks and she runs like a champ now.
