Yeah is like a good pure definition of RAM slam shut, riding the slide. Etc.

Tom, you said yours had about the same problem with slam firing? I'm going to strip the whole upper and do a deep cleaning.
Thank you so much I will try that. It makes it easier when someone else has the same fun that had the same problem. But I want to thank everyone who had posted comments on what the possible cause is

Tom, also was your hammer following the slide? When you dropped it? Mine doesn't seem to stay locked back only when you drop the slide

SUPER,
If your hammer is following the slide, then you may have a hammer/sear problem or a weak or broken sear spring. You must detail strip your frame and inspect these parts. They may just be gummed up and in need of a good cleaning, or in need of parts replacement. At any rate, at this time, you have a dangerous condition. If you are not comfortable or experienced enough to do the work, take a trip to a good gunsmith.

That's what I'm doing to do tonight. So far what I can see is that the strut hammer is bent and the shear spring seems to be weak. I'm going to do some research on where to find these parts. I went to bolsa gunsmithing by my house and they said they can't get any parts for it. But he did write down a few online stores so I'm going to see what I can do. I want to get this fix because when its working the way it is supposed too. It's a excellent piece of machinery

The same process of chambering a round is done everytime you pull the trigger in a 1911. What you do not want to do is release the slide on it's own on an empty chamber.
