He's not a real sniper. He's just read about them! :-) We all hope he will do us proud and be one here pretty soon, though!

Hello, monicaluc

Welcome to the site monicaluc. Sorry, I can't help with the tec-9. I have played with them but that was about 15 years ago and since then I have forgotten about them.

Welcome to the site. I'm not an expert or anything, but is it an open bolt design or is it a post 1982 closed bolt example? That'll help with a diagnosis by us gun doctors/kitchen gunsmith dremel tool butchers

If the bolt isn't going forward far enough, meaning the gun is failing to go into battery, look at the recoil spring to see if it's weak. I love trying to diagnose gun problems, and there are very few weapon-specific issues. Check that, and if it's not the recoil spring providing proper force to the bolt, we'll move to the bolt itself and then the chamber.

recoil spring in good condition. brand new sear, sear spring, ejector and extractor. sear spring was a bastard to get in but think i got it right. i think the extractor was a little too far forward but wont go over casing any other way. i took it all the way out because thats how it was when i got it. it made sense. worked but two or three at a time, eventually catching the casing on the way back causing a jam

so the extractor wouldn't go over the rim? How do the primers and casing bases look on the ones that fire? Could the bolt's headspace be worn? The problem is that the models before 1982 were the favored gangbanger weapons as they were easy to convert, that's why the ATF made the ruling that they were machine guns as open bolts, so they were produced as closed-bolt weapons after that year. Has this gun been owned by someone you know the whole time, or is it something you picked up from a questionable source?
