If your 1911 isn't feeding hollowpoints then the first thing to try is a couple of new magazines, from different makers, BEFORE you do ANY modifications to the weapon.
I have yet to see a 1911, even a "interwebz diagnosed problematic" Taurus ( I don't believe that title ), that can't feed multiple ammo types and makes without issue. Now, occassionally you might get a bad factory mag, or a mag that does not give you the angle you need to slide up the ramp and into the chamber.
The first step is to try a couple of easy fixes, like different ammo and different magazines even before you take it to a gunsmith who can diagnose what might, or might not, be wrong with your new weapon.
Best of luck, but personally I would try a couple of new Wilson 47D's, Chip McCormick's, Tripps or other quality aftermarket magazines before you go attacking the feed ramp.
