i bought my pk380 back in febuary, initially my wife and i put around 800 rounds through it but the more we fired it the more it jammed up untill it was failing to eject at all and failing to load the majority of the time, so i called S&W to have it repaired, i got the sidearm back today with a little sheet of paper that says "REPAIRED: REPLACE FIRING PIN REPAIRED: REPLACE SPRING". needless to say im a bit excited called the wife and let her know we were going shooting tonight.

drove out to our usually shooting spot, laid out 10 targets, loaded all 3 magazines and with a big old grin started to blast in the general direction of my targets (im a piss poor shot with the pk380 its not the weapon its me) after 5 shots and 3 landing on target i pull the triger again, nothing, safe it look at it and its jammed, figured its a fluke cleared the weapon put the next 3 down, grabed the next magazine got 3 off before a failure to eject, cleared it, 2 more and another failure...

i went through a total of 26 bullets today with the pk380, tomarow i get to send it in again

it was gone from 5/29-6/19 doesnt seem like long but when you go shooting 2-3 times a week every week and only own 3 firearms thats a very long time

My Pk380 will jam every time using Winchester white box ammo. I sent an email to Walther last week... But no response yet.

Springs on all 3 mags we measured, gun is clean. I'm confused why it won't shoot this ammo.
The gun likes the cheap stuff just fine.

It does say in the owner's manual that although Walters are tested with all types of ammo that it is up to the consumer to determine which brand/type runs best in his particular gun. Not all ammo is the same... And before anyone says "no, the gun should be able to run with all brands/types of defensive ammo". No...I've been shooting since the 70's and there's just some guns that run better with a certain brand than others. It's always been like that with semi autos...

My suggestion is to go thru a process of elimination. make sure pistol is cleaned/lubed. Does it occur after the second shot? Or on the last? Note what brands are used and try a different one. try to narrow it down and if ya can't find the cause then, then you should return it for inspection.. Most of the time it's the ammo...
