I've had this thing awhile now, and it's been nothing but problems most of the time I've owned it. It's actually a tec-dc9, which I believe is the most common of the pre-ban guns. While it's been unreliable and temperamental in the past, at one time it was actually running half way decent. Even when it works though, this is the most inaccurate gun I've ever owned. It's an absolute miracle that these guns have managed to kill as many people as they have, considering that most of the time you'd be better off throwing it at someone than trying to shoot them with it, and even throwing it is iffy, since it's made out of cheap plastic and pot metal. Last few times I've shot it (or at least attempted to shoot it), either it wouldn't fire when the trigger was pulled and would just make a "click" sound, or occasionally it would shoot one or two rounds. Some of the rounds that didn't fire would have a light firing pin mark, but some wouldn't. So, I thought maybe the firing pin was rounded down or something, as these are known for frequent firing pin breakage. That didn't fix it. I took it out after replacing it, and it did the same thing. I was reading on the Stoney Creek Armory Tec-9 board about someone else having the same problem, and one of the suggestions was that maybe the extractor was to blame. So today, I stripped it down, and there was a whole ton of junk on the extractor. I cleaned it, put it back together, and it still only fired twice out of a dozen tries. I tried adjusting the extractor, and ended up with no marks on the primers, so I moved back down to the factory setting, and it decided to shoot again....for a little bit, but then it went right back to functioning at about 10%. I don't know what's wrong with this, and I'm really running out of the patience to care. The only reason I've put up with this POS so long is because it looks cool, and because I had wanted one since I was a little kid. Well, the allure is really wearing off, and I'm at a loss as to what to do next to make it work reliably, I'm not willing to pay a gunsmith to work on it, I'm reluctant to order anymore parts since I don't know what it needs, and as cool as it looks, I'm not rich enough to have that much money tied up in a paperweight. There's a few minor scuffs on the receiver, and there's a few spots of surface rust on the mag release, but overall the gun looks pretty good. You have to oil these at least once a month whether you shoot them or not, as they will rust regardless. Just one more reason NOT to buy one. comes with the factory 32 round mag, and I think I have two of the national brand aftermarket mags, but they don't work at all basically, and aren't good for anything but more aggravation I replaced the recoil springs in it not too many rounds ago too, even though I don't think it needed it. comes with the extra firing pin and factory hard case also $350 cash, or $400 trade value, which probably isn't a realistic price for something with a horrendous reputation that won't even shoot half the time, but that's what I want. FTF in Coos Bay area or Roseburg only will trade for DA ruger or S&W revolvers in .357, .44, bolt action .300/.338, etc. If anyone's interested (which I seriously doubt), I can post some more pics of this thing.
