Intratec TEC-9 Question

nunnnunn Forums Admins, Member, Moderator Posts: 35,710 ******

I have a TEC-9 Mini. It works, sort of. I did test fire it. 

Manually cycling the action, the striker is cocked, and the pistol strips off one round from the magazine and chambers it. Pulling the trigger fires that round, and the empty is extracted and ejected. Then, apparently the recoil impulse is not enough to drive the bolt far enough to the rear to cock the striker and load the next round. 

I am not sure where the fault is. Too stout a recoil spring, faulty magazine, or my cruddy old ammo I used to test the gun. 

Any ideas?

Here is a link to the auction:

Thanks in advance.

    I have had several and the mags were not the issue, probably the strong point. Absolutely needs good, clean ammo and not Brown Bear that won't cycle. 50/50 as far as one functioning for a long time, IMO ONLY.
