Sorry to hear you're having problems with your new RZ-10. You have a lot of questions that would be best answered by the good people at Dan Wesson. I would pick up the phone and give them a call: 607-336-1174

How do you load those magazine with clips?

Load the mags up and let them sit overnight. When it gets stuck back, how far back are you talking about? Just a FTRB or before the slide touches the top round?

Darnit - somebody beat me to the clip joke!

Full house Double Tap loads may not be as hot as you think - if you read around, you'll find that DT has some issues with over-stating their advertised velocites. If you want real hot 10mm loads, try Underwood Ammo. The RZ-10 shouldn't have any issues handling hot stuff.

So it's more of a failure to return to battery than the slide locking up? Field strip it and see if the rounds will slide easily and fully into the chamber. Failure to feed when hand cycling does not mean it will fail when shooting. For whatever reason, the checkmate mag springs like to sit fully loaded at least overnight before being shot.

I am sure it is frustrating, but it will get resolved.

My RZ 10 is on the way back in. I LOVE it but it will not run correctly. Several members have had problems with this year's batch. Run a search and you will see the problems are similar to yours. Great thing is I think think the problems are minor. I trust Dan Wesson to address the issues. I'd run some Tripp mags and see if your problems go away in another 200 rounds. If not, send her in.

Well I guess I'm not alone.
I too am having problems.The slide is locking back prematurely and now the nosedive up into the barrel is happening.
The mags have been left loaded. I put 127 rounds of 4 different brands of ammo thru it.
The slide stop looks a little chewed up and I'm noticing some peening on the slide lock notch.
Guess she's going back.
And I waited sooo long. 1st. D.W., !st. 10, bummer.
Oh well I'm confident D.W. will fix things, all I have heard about customer service has been good.

Cheers

i'd agree send them back,there should be no reason to have to shoot more than 150 rounds to break a gun in.personally i hand lap all my stainless dw's prior to shooting them then lube the frame rails with rig+p grease and some fp-10 for good luck then cycle the slide with no clip 50 or so times just to insure everything is smooth.after that i shoot them till i run out of ammo

it is likely your slide not operating smoothly and it is throwing the timing off.with spending what we are on the guns we should not have to spend 500 in ammo to break one in.

That's an interesting attitude you have there, EddieTalent, regarding not wanting to be proficient at expressing yourself. And, I don't appreciate being called names. It's rude and bad forum etiquette. I'm sure you could have expressed yourself in such a way as to not insult other forum members, who were offering constructive criticism. And so much for that.

You could have always gone back and edited out your insult. And yet, you chose not to and instead remain in contradiction of your "intentions". Not looking for a fight? Seems pretty hypocritical to me. Again, you could have said the same thing without personally insulting other members here. Stuff like that isn't tolerated on a lot of public forums. As for here, we'll see...

Granted, I don't have anything to say about the RZ-10, but I am still interested in reading about your issues with it. And what good does it do to go on a mini-rant, using vulgar language and insulting other members?

Carry on.
