Good morning,

I just purchased a new P250c 40sw this weekend. I have only ran two mags of rounds through it, which ran through flawlessly. Of these, ONE spent round ejected nearly straight up, and landed on top of my head. This round was part way through a mag...I'm sure I fired at least 4-5 more rounds after.

Is this a common issue?

It's been an issue with for the first few hundred rounds. I remember almost having to dodge a few rounds per mag to just not get hit with hot brass. Not very nice of my p250's but once you get it broken in it throws them more out rather than up. That was the case with me at least.

Best of luck and just endure it for a little bit!
P250 for life!

this is been an issue for me as well but as previously stated, it gets better over time. Now, I've heard and read that this issue is more likely with the old model p250 (1st gen) but it's happened on my 2nd gen 9 mm. compact too, especially after getting and installing the tactical threaded barrel and is safe to notice that the threaded shape is like the first generation barrels but it's probably a coincidence. It didn't happen on my .40 FS

This is a designed safety feature for the break-in of new handguns. As long as the spent cases are smacking you in the noggin, you are certain the weapon has fully cycled and is prepared to fire the next round. No squibs, no failure to eject, etc...

Get a cowboy hat and catch the brass. It'll save you from having to bend over and pick it up off the ground. ;-)

Wear your shirt tight in the back.

One time at the range:

A spent round flipped over my head and landed between the collar behind my head and my back.

Needless to say I was moving fast to get it out.

LOL

I always seemed to have more of an issue with the brass bouncing off the ground and somehow getting stuck in my shoe.

My 250c 9mm will eject somewhere up there and long after the noise of the shot begins to dissapate the casing can be heard through my ear muff type hearing protection hitting the asphalt range I am standing on near by.
It is a bit of a delay after the shot is fired and then hear the brass hit the pavement.

I had this problem with my 9 mm compact but not the 40 SC. Some helpful info. was I wasn't holding the grip tight enough to help with the ejection...it worked for me.

Yep - my P250 ejected a .40 brass, and it landed behind my eyeglasses, and sizzled my left eyelid.
