Try using a Wilson magazine or my personal favorite Cobra II mags from Tripp.Can anyone recomend a good self defence round that will reliably feed in a SA 1911 GI? I really don't want to use FMJ but the Winchester hollowpoints I have for my XD will not feed at all.
Other problems can be timing related (might need new springs) or rough feed ramp which a simple polish job should correct.
You did not state whether your 1911 was new or had previous service. If new, I would request warrantee service.
Hope that this helps.
