You may be limp wristing or you just aren't used to the 1911 platform or at minimum, that 1911. Magazines may be a problem, just try some others, it's an easy fix. If you're anticipating recoil/flinching, you're already aware of something to work on. Relax and get used to the pistol. Have some fun with it.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. ― Samuel Adams
