Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Problem solved....apparently I had the screws on the grip too tight. I looked in the mag well and there was plenty of room between the end of the screw and the frame but I loosened them up a little bit and the mag falls clear. Thanks for the help guys.

Glad you found the simple answer spitty. On a few of mine with fancy grips, I use tiny rubber O'rings (from the plumbing aisle at Lowes) on the grip screws...

What I find amazing is that a member with a handle like mr1911 didn't jump in and offer any help or suggestions. At some point, all of us were newb's with 1911s and the most valuable thing we experienced folks can offer is help and advice when asked...

All my mags fall from my weapon when I depress the mag release, if the weapon is straight up and down, except for my H&K & my Kimber .22 ( it has the plastic magazines ). I have to wrist snap it to get those to drop.

I seriously wish I had the extra cash lying around to just cut you a check and get that thing away from you so you can rest easy with your Tactical Plastic.
I was thinking the same thing will all these guys pissing and moaning about their 1911 with a little spor of rust. Good lord. It is not the gun your lazy ass didn't clean it right "Put Your BIG Girl Panties on and DEAL with it.".

Sorry I couldn't go back in time and answer this post before you did, I do enjoy giving advice to those who genuinely want and deserve it.
