Gun not ejecting shells

I have a FEG 9mm which is a Hungarian clone to the Brownie high powered 9. I clean and oil the gun quite often (usually after each use). It started a while back where it would not eject the spent round. Sometimes it will go through a whole clip just fine, other times it will jam after just a couple rounds. It doesn't seem to matter what ammo I am using either. Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions.

Warn out, warn down ejector or ejector spring?

generally the shell is about halfway out, so it is stuck at an angle. The following round is generally still in the clip or just out to wear when I drop the clip the next round falls out.

Sorry not sure what stovepiping is. As far as I can tell every thing is in good working order. I am not sure if browning parts will fit it, I will have to do some research.

That is a possiblity, unfortuneatly I am no gunsmith, I know enough to break it down, clean, oil and put it back together, beyound that Im at a loss. That is why I am asking the professionals.

You need to have a gunsmith or someone knowlegable with that gun look at it. Or see if you can find a forum on the internet that specializes in that gun. That'd probably be your best bet.

Check the guide rod for the buffer spring. Make sure it's not bent. If there is a lot of slop in the action it could be binding as the receiver is blown back.

Slowly pull the receiver back and see if you feel any rough spots.

If everything looks to be operating well you might just need to use a different ammo with a higher muzzle pressure. You could also switch to a heavier round. So if you're using 35 grn, try a 45 grn bullet.

No need friend. Here is the problem.

You need to shift your grip higher, right under those frame tangs.

Also, tighten your grip pressure just a tad. Your stovepiping problems will disappear.

Also, lock the wrist when firing.

Good advice, a weak grip can do that. Push (with your strong hand)/pull (with your weak hand) will be the most solid. I understand that High Powers are hard on the recoil springs and it sounds like you have put a fari number of rounds through this pistol, although weak spring wouldn't cause the problem that you are having. Still, include spring replacement in your regular maintenance so that the gun does not beat itself.
