Did you get it from an online dealer that has a storefront in Germany or something?

Let me rephrase, why the hell is it in Germany?

My sig 1911 .22lr still made by gsg. I really like this gun but tends to ftf on the second round. I only have one mag right now with 1000 or so rounds. I cant seem to find more mags for under $50.

I have a GSG also. Have the FTF on second round only if it's cheap ammo. Joe Bob's outfitters has mags for around $30. I got my extras there.

I had a couple FTF's when I first got it.
When I took a closer look, I noticed a little bit of drag when the slide returned to battery.
Because there is so little spring tension from the recoil spring, my thinking is that any little bit of drag has the potential for FTF's.
So I polished the face of the hammer and where it makes contact when returning to battery, underneath the slide.
I'm guessing what manufactures refer to as a "break-in period" would help to smooth out these contact areas as well.

The slide now returns to battery as smooth as glass and I haven't had a single FTF since.

What kind of ammo should I use in my sig 1911 .22lr? After 3 trips to the range I went through 700 winchester 36 grain and 300 fedral 40 grain. Both kinds were resulting in ftf on 2nd round too often.

I've always found CCI MiniMags to be very reliable.

I put 250+ rounds through mine on Sat. at a steel challenge. Bulk Federal HV with not 1 problem. 100+ rounds of Winchester bulk, same as you shot, and had several FTF today. Just FYI.
