@ Bigtim, I guess I flew off the handle at you there. Sorry about that. It isnt like me to do that. We all have our bad days. On a side note,I have decided to go "all in" with the Walther. I was going to buy just one mag. for it. I couldn't find any around here. I looked on line but the picture didn't match the description. I was worried about getting the wrong magazine.I called Walther and they didn't have any either. He said Midway Usa got the last 50 yesterday. I went to their site and they were cheaper there than any other site anyway. They got fifty in yesterday . They are down to at least 48 now. I ordered two because they were so hard to find. Honestly, who make a pistol and sells it with just one mag.? I figure, if I do have problems, I will just keep after them until it is right.

Well,I've put 100 rounds through my PK380. I had no issues but my brother in-law had two FTE. I watched him shoot after the second one. I gave him a quick lesson about "limp wristing". He had no more problems. I had a great time and I want to get back out and do it again. Thanks to ALL for the input and encouragement.

Update.......... My brand new Walther PK380 is now on its way back to Walther. I took it out this morning. I was the only one firing the gun. I fired 99 shots with 12 FTE. I took it back to the gun shop [still dirty] and they are sending it back to S&W /Walther for repairs. I knew this was a possibility. I'm not angry[ unless they don't make it right]. I just want the gun I bought to be in good working order. I found a couple reviews on line that discussed the failure to eject problems. Went into this with my eyes open. I will let you all know what happens.

12/99 is not acceptable. I hope they can fix it for you.

In the Walther's I've had experience with, I ended up buying an extra (or two) action springs and cutting off a few coils to lighten the springs. Typically over time, once the action is broken in, FTE's will stop, but until then, it's very frustrating. I take out the original springs to keep them safe, then trim off a few coils from the new spring and install it into the pistol.

Usually that alleviates the FTE problem, even in a brand new, stiff pistol.

My opinion, I'd trade it in for a Glock.
