First, do a field strip according to the manual and make sure everything is clean and then lightly oil all moving/sliding/rotating parts. Back at the range, try a few different brands of ammo, as some guns are picky about what they eat. Assuming it came with 2 magazines, check if the problem only occurs with one of them. I read some reviews about this pistol and they all commented on how well it performed, so I would probably lean toward the ammo or a lack of oil.

    Take it back or sell it. Then buy a better brand of gun.
