Default Issue with my Para Expert help please?

So when i goto the range and this happens evrey time. I put atleast 100 rounds through my para and have only 200 down the pipe. Evrey trip at the 50 - 75 rnd mark i get a FTF (failure to feed) where the next round will hit the top of the chamber instead of going straight into the chamber. Is this an issue related to "breaking in" or should i contact Para and find out what needs to be done? I forgot to take a picture the last time i went out so you will have to try and picture a round at 45 degree angel hitting the top of barrel right on the feed ramp. Thanks in advance.

Do you use different magazines?
Does it do it with only one magazine?

That is where I would be looking first.
But other things may be involved.
(ammo, hold, dirt)

Wilson is top of the line. Forgive me if I missed it about the ammo. Round nose, nothing funny? Whatyou described is a common malfunction with "fflying ashtray" type HP.

OK, as danfl suggested, fouling may be the case. Especially if you shoot "dirty" ammo like Win White Box or some imports in a tight fitting 1911. Try and clean the chamber after a stoppage, then see how long it takes before the next one. If it makes a difference, here is the sign.

P.S. and the mag follower too.
