My first thought is that pieces of the buffer got between the hammer and the rear face of the slide, blocking a good hit to the rear end of the firing pin. I have put cases (not bricks) of ammo...

No. It is a great value, but not in the same class. And I should note the Nomad was the economy version of the old Brownings.

I have a 4" bull barrel that I've used occasionally. It is more ammo sensitive, wanting higher velocity for reliability. I blame it on the shorter dwell time of the bullet in the barrel not...

My 4" barrel tends to be the most picky about ammo. Best thing to do is just tray a box and see how it goes.
