Excellent.

Every 1911 will have feed and extraction problems if limp wristed. The gun won't come in and out of battery correctly and therefore, nothing else will work properly. I've seen it happen, first hand, on Colts, Kimbers, Paras, and Sigs.
That's weird. I don't have any video personally, but here's something from youtube showing the 1911 platform working even though the person limp wristed the heck out of it. I guess it shows how personal experiences can differ from one another.

Well,

A little lubrication goes a long way apparently!

50 rounds fired, functioned flawlessly. Maybe I was limp wristing it before, as i made sure NOT to this time, but maybe I just forgot to lube it, either way, i made sure to count my ducks and make sure everything was in order before this time, and it worked great.

Thanks for all the help guys, simple solution!
