Default Help with my chippia 1911 22cal replica

Hey any one who owns a chippia 1911 mine is having constant mis feeds and i think its because of some notches at the entry of the chamber plus the shells when ejected are coming out misformed when put in fine. Is this happening to anyone else? is it a company problem or just my gun? PLEASE HELP!!!!!

good close up pics of the chamber area and knowing what brand of ammo your using would help.

with 22lr they can be finicky. the first step of diagnosing any 22lr issue is to see if the issue persists across 4 or 5 different brands of ammo. this should be done before any changes to the gun are undertaken.

Like Jon said-try some different kinds of ammo in it. If that don't work I'd advise sending it back to the factory. If you try to work on it and don't succeed, you'll likely void the warranty.

Nothing wrong with buying used guns. But if you havetried only one type of ammo thats prolly the problem. Im not familiar with chiappa warranty.

I had one of these handguns. The trick is to spray lots of WD40 on the slide. The guns will only function with things like Stingers and other hot .22 ammo. After it breaks in you won't need to heavy lube the slide and chamber. I traded mine for a GSG 1911. The GSG is a very fine pistol and will shoot anything. The GSG uses 80% of the parts from a standard .45 1911.

As a lube, WD-40 sux. About same lubricity as kerosene. Try a good lube, such as CLP. Also, as da man said, check chamber mouth for a dinged up mouth (firing pin)

The WD 40 will remove the hard coating they put on these guns. Once you get this out of the slide rails and moving parts it will function with .22 HV ammo.

Or you could polish the slide rails, but I think the OP doesn't wanna void the warranty if it's got one. Call Chiappa and give them your gun's serial number and they can tell you if it's out of warranty. If it is out of warranty then worry about working on the gun then, not before. Most 22lr pistols do have heavier springs than they should for bulk ammo, so breaking it in is either leaving the slide locked back for a while or shooting lots of ammo. It's also a good idea to have a good quality lube in any 22lr pistol since they are pretty picky as stated above.
