Elite Ammo ever do this in your FiveseveN?

Post by MAJmorgan » 06 Dec 2011, 16:12

Fired case would not eject, slide jammed 3/4 back. Primers had blown out and squished between frame & slide. Happened 3x in a single box before I stopped shooting the stuff.

Hasn't happened to me as yet, have you contacted EA about it?

Good idea to stop shooting that batch. Which kind of Elite's ammunition was it? Looks like S4 but the pic is too small to read clearly
Contrary to popular belief, you CAN fix stupid - it's just illegal.

Finally found how to resize pic in Picasa. Yes S4. Elite said they would contact me with a return authorization form, but after waiting a month I gave up.... now I stick to SS19x rounds without problems.

EA is a small company & usually pretty busy but they will make good. Please have patience though, they just had a death in the family & things are bit hectic.

Your problem is that two letter abbreviation : RH. That also looks like Super Raptor not UR. Could be overcharged. Could have had bad crimps on the primers. I've had factory ammo (.45ACP) loose primers..

What email did you use? You do know we had a death in the family and the shop was closed?

Please resend your info to me at jaywolf@eliteammunition.com and I will get you a call tag. I will need all your info including the total amount of ammo coming back so we can properly calculate shipping weight.
