Yes I just walk out back. The tree is still in process, I have enough material left to cut another 2 plates, it has room for 5 (6") total.

Jeff,
I had this happen twice to mine this weekend (was using Win. white box). I was only shot 50 rnds. It seems the new round would only make it about half way into the chamber. I've fired about 150 rnds since last cleaning in the last couple of weeks (been using Rems up till now). I wanted to see what would happen with doing just some wipe downs and very lite re-lubing after each shooting session. I usually shot 50 rnds a weekend. The gun didn't seem too dirty but didn't have very much lube. So I cleaned it up and now I know how dry/dirty I can run if I am out camping for a week or 2.

I'm not positive as this is my first 1911 (and am a newb) but I have put almost 700 thru it so far and this just came up this weekend and I said it wasn't really dirty but was what I may consider a little dry from what I see others talk about (also I was using what others say is "dirty" ammo).

With 1911s that exhibit that kind of feed problem I look at a few areas:

-magazines.
-extractor (tension and lower edge profile)
-breech face
-ammo (rim dimensions)
-chamber

The 1911 as it feeds from the mag, guides the rim of the cartridge up under the lower edge if the extractor, and up the breech face on its way into the chamber.

Tension of the extractor can be too tight, making the rim bind, or too loose, and not keeping the rim controlled. The radius of the extractor may not be smooth and can collect carbon and gunk. The breech face may be dirty, the rims of certain brands may be too thick or to thin and not allowing proper guidance of the round into the chamber. Mags may have improper feed lip angles. The mag catch may also need to be fitted better to get the proper mag height for proper feeding. But I would expect more consistent problems regardless of round count for the session if the mag height was a problem.

Describe where the empty casing eject to and where they land.

The main job of the recoil spring is to push the slide forward, and secondary job is to work with the main spring to make recoil manageable.

Observing where cases land can help determine if recoil spring replacement is needed or extractor needs adjustment.

(And, of course, you always load from a magazine. And never put one in the barrel and expect the extractor to slide over the rim of the casing.)

The Cases usually go out the ejection port with a violent spin to the right and back. landing approximately 6 inches from my right foot.
