Well that's what gets me, the gun ran fine with when it was new. However it only about fifty rounds through it before he changed the springs, the grip safety, the slide lock and the mag release. I personally like to make things tacticool but I don't mess with internals.

Based on your description on his problems.

The stove piping was caused by limp wristing. The volume of shooting you guys were doing was quite a lot, so he was probly a little fatiged or getting sloppy and didn't want to admit it. If it was a "mechanical" problem it would have been more consistant.

The failure to ping the primers hard enough is the main spring. Which he will secretly change to save face. ;-)

HUH?

most likely the problems are related to changing parts that didn't need changing in the first place. they are probably not working in sync together.

most all SR1911's run great right out of the box with no modifications. my rule of thumb is why make changes when there is nothing wrong. if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
