So I Bought a POF 5

I have almost 200 rounds through it, and I'm very pleased so far. I read that using +P ammo was the way to break it in so I loaded up some Fiocchi 115g +P+ and ran 30 rounds down the pipe. My first round was an FTE which I expected because brand-spankin-new. Later, I had another FTE on a 124g or 147g XTP reload, first XTP, no problems with any XTP afterward. Yesterday I had two FTEs that were ALL MY FAULT.

Gun is great, the operator, well... :) I haven't had to adjust the sights and I've shot from 75 yards standing, no bench where I shoot. Gun takes any reload I give it, I load 9mm 124g and 147g towards the MAX side, I load XTP longer than the book says and towards MAX. I still need to run some Gold Dots, RA9T, and SXT.

I haven't had any trouble with the OEM magazine, I use it the most because I want to see if it will fail. The other mags are HK and I highly doubt I'll have trouble with those.

Thanks!!

I forgot to add that I cleaned the gun and lubed it with Lubri-Kit, making sure all the moving parts were slippery, before I took it to the range.

My POF has run like a champ from day one. The gun it replaced, not so much.
Good to hear yours is doing well. Pics?
