Today, we're going to talk about some common jams in semi-automatic pistols and how to clear them. The first jam clearing drill we want to talk about is you pull your weapon out, you go to fire and nothing happens. Okay, the first thing you do, tap the bottom of the magazine to make sure that the magazine is properly seated and rack the gun and then fire.
That right there is going to clear most of your common jams.
The second common jam you're going to find with a gun is which is called a double feed. With a double feed you have a round in the chamber and another round is attempting to be loaded into the chamber behind it causing the two bullets to push up against each other and jam the gun. So, you're shooting, all of a sudden nothing happens, you're going to look at your gun. When you look down, you're going to see the double feed. You'll see the two bullets behind each other, so you're going to remove your magazine.
When you pull your magazine out, you're going to work the slide a couple times to make sure you clear any rounds that are left in the chamber. You're going to reinsert your magazine and rack it again. From there the gun fires as normal, locks back showing the gun is empty.
The third common jam you're going to come across is which is called a stove pipe. A stove pipe is when you have either a spent casing or a live round which is half ejected from the ejection port, sticking out of the gun like this and it's preventing the slide from going forward. So, once again, you're firing, the gun stops firing, you're going to look and see what you have. You look at the gun, you see the stove pipe and you're going to remove the magazine and work the gun several times making sure to clear the jam. Put your magazine source back in and rack the gun and continue firing. That is how to clear the three most common jams you're going to come across while firing.
For the stove pipe u shouldnt have to eject clip just pull it out the top of the gun if you in a shoot out with a bad manns and u shoot a couple rounds an it jams u dont have that much time to do all this but all threw i agree to most youtube im only a 7 yo on a gun page.
Right so I just need to watch this about a hundred more times so that I can remember it.
Also I got a problem, so I was in this massive shoot out right and I was shooting my 50. Cal at some guys when all of a sudden my 50. Stopped shooting and started making clicking noises. I clicked the reload button but it wouldn't work. Does this mean I gotta go back to the ammunation store?
- this comment is a joke -
With a stovepipe you can usually just pull the slide back and shake out the empty casing then release the slide and your back in business. That of course is a combat technique when you need to get the gun back in the fight asap.
Irson Vidyanto get a revolver pull the trigger and bang. More reliable than semi auto. Your not going to get into a big shoot out. Just protect your rear end. There are some great Concealed Carry Revolvers. Check some out.
Guys i need help. Well, my dad found a colt 1911 like 15 years ago. He shot one magazine without problems. He decided to reload and then he pulled the trigger but nothing happened. He left the gun with all bullets inside. The gun looks really rusty. And i wanted to clean it and use but im afraid that the gun can blow up as soon as i press the release button.
The round in the chamber during a double feed is a fired case (extraction failure) or a live round (who knows why)? Also, is it more common in Browning style locked pistols, straight line actions like the Walther P38 or in fixed barrel guns like a H&K VP70Z? I suspect they are more common on Browning based pistols because of the circular path of the chamber, wich, I suspect, causes unwanted extractor behavior. Am I right?
I have a Ruger SR40c that used to misfire often. I finally marked the magazine that the next misfires were from, and took it apart when I got home. I compared it with the other mag and noticed the spring was shorter. I simply stretched the spring by hand and put back together (after cleaning both). Have since shot about 300 rounds with no more problems.
I always learned to keep it pointed down range , after 30 seconds eject the magazine than safe the gun before putting the magazine back in. You want to make sure there's no round in the barrel that you missed. Obviously all depending on the type of gun.
Nigel Roque if it’s out of the gun it won’t hurt you. The pressure goes to the area with least resistance causing a ruptured case, which will not harm you. Just keep the gun in a safe direction and don’t put anything where it can get shot.
OK. Why do some 9 mm semis jam so much? My husband was a police officer and when they went to 9mm in the mid 1970s they jammed nearly EVERY time. All I know is that we named his German Shepherd Jammer as he said he would then have the ONLY Jammer that worked in the department!
Shooting lead and having a dirty pistol will cause jams. I shot a Glock 19 and it didn't jam on me ever. Did have a MP5 .22 jam on me every 3rd shot though. It was a rental at shooting range so I'm sure it was probably dirty.
how come my gsg 522 will commonly do double feeds, and stoak pipes more often? it used to be perfect, like go through a mag no problems, and now it does it more often. ( this is a .22 rifle, and yes we clean it. )
Thank you, I had 2 bullets jammed in my chamber and didn't know how to get it out. After watching this video I got both bullets right out. Everything went smooth and I picked up a few tips in the process. Great video it was extremely helpful.
Hello, while the basic principals shown in this video are somewhat correct, these methods can be done more efficiently as some have mentioned. The best videos on youtube for type 1,2 and 3 jams are by clint at thunder mountain.
Do not pass this on to anyone, reasons:
1: No eye protection
2: Removing and HOLDING on to magazine while racking slide
='s ineffective, slow technique.
The definitive double feed jam remedy drill is:
LOOK at issue and determine it is type 3(low brass) jam,
MOVE a step left or right, of the side out of line of fire,
CHECK for a magazine in your mag carrier,
LOCK the slide to the rear,
STRIP the magazine out of the pistol and discard it to the ground,
RACK, RACK, RACK your slide, DRIVING it forward each time to strip out the chambered remaining casing,
REINSERT fresh magazine,
BANG back onto target.
This should take 2.5 seconds.
Andre Krumins again, not the point. try doing that under duress. The untrained lose fine motor skills and being able to hold onto a magazine AND the slide to a pistol become very difficult, not strength wise, but dexterity wise.
For the double feed, it's better to lock the slide and then strip the mag. For the stove pipe, you can just run your hand across the top of the slide (same motion when your rack the slide), clearing the spent casing rather then stripping the mag out.
