What type of jam is it, and what may cause it, when the spent rd gets stuck between the top of the slide and the next rd as the slide moves back from firing spent rd.

I don't think this is a stove pipe, because the spent rd that is jammed is horizontal, (I wish I had taken a picture).

I have about 280 rds through my NIB gen 4 26 purchased 10/31/12. I have only shot Winchester 115 gr 9mm luger 100 ct box from WM.

I had the first jam at about the 125th rd and the second today at about 240 ct. Both jams accured when I was using the mag I installed the Pierce 39 extender on. After the jam today I shot another 40 rds with the same mag and, no problems.

Really hard to say but it isn't a stovepipe. Just a Failure to eject. My guess would be on the ammo if you can't get it to jam constantly.

I wonder if the extension has anything to do with it. Might be interesting to try the stock base plate for a while and see what happens.
