I went to a gunshow this morning and found the CT LG-431 I have been looking for, 156 bux with the batteries for life coupon. So I bolted em on and headed for the range which is right out behind my pole barn.
Previous to this I had fired only one box of S&B and had a couple FTE's but was not too worried about it.
Today I had a LOT of FTE's today I was shooting really cheap Aquilas and some left over S&B's and it did the same thing with both brands.
It leaves the entire case in the chamber like the extractor is slipping off the case head, so I got out the dremmel and mirror polished the feed ramp and chamber, it did help some but there is still the occasional FTE, but when I load up my high priced carry loads, Win hollow points, it burns through em with no hiccups.
I'm not much of one to send stuff back, I'm gonna work through this by process of elimination, prolly gonna get some real fine compound and polish the chamber even more, then see what develops.
As far as the laser goes, this thing rocks! Excellent unit, fit and finish are very nice, it required about 1/8 clock wise turn and no elevation to hit point of aim dead center, off sand bags sitting down at 7 yards, ORH (One Ragged Hole) is no problem, at 15 it opened up a little groups were around 1.50 inches but that aint to shabby for a pocket pistol with a barrel only about twice the length of the chamber.

Where was the lifetime battery coupon from? I had read it didn't apply to the LCP version, but maybe that coupon is from a particular dealer.

Thanks for the info.

I think the name of the outfit was lasersforguns.com, it was the last one in his case, he said he has sold four cases of en since the first of the month, I have no idea how many that is.

Aquilla ammo is not cheap stuff, it should work with that ammo. Your issue is extractor related...

Well as I have been waiting for my shipping box from Ruger I have been messing with the pistol, I super mirror polished the chamber and feed ramp, I took the extractor apart to check for a broken spring, and it wasn't broken, and now the latest problem is it will only punch the primer about 50% of the time, the ones that dont go off have a very light off center dimple, so I guess when my box comes I guess I'm gonna send a note and tell them what I think about this lemon, I have friends with keltecs that go off more often than this thing does, when it fires it wont extract, then when it does extract it wont fire the next round, oh well, guess it's back to my bet your life reliable G36.

Sorry about your gun. My G30 is my BUG for my LCP.

Hey, no flaming, lol. It's a joke!! I've put only a short box of Blazer through my LCP and it did that well. But I do plan to do enough shooting to make sure it goes Bang when I really need it to. I sure like it, the LCP, and hope it turns into a real carry piece for me. When I was a kid, I had water guns that weighed more than it does, lol.

Dan in ABQ.
