Default kinda weird

went out and shot the new warrior today and it was weird ive spent the last 2 years shooting exclusively with a glock and im pretty good imo, but when i went from using the long spongy glock trigger to the extremly crisp kimber trigger i started flinching really bad and pulling shots, the ones that i squeezed properly were like lazerbeams dead center one hole group type shots but most of them i pulled left or right because i think with the kimber trigger i know exactly when it is gonna break and flinching becomes a problem for me, i hope i can solve this problem with practice as thos is the first time i have shot a 1911 more than one or two rounds.

I also had another weird problem i thought i had a ftf, but when i started looking at the gun when it wouldn't go back into battery i noticed that it was always on or about round 6 or 7 the slide would lock like when the mag was empty but there was 1 0r 2 rounds remaining. The bullets in the mag would be slightly forward up the feed ramp, i have no idea why it is doing this. Im using new wilson combat mags and speer lawman 230 grain round nose ammo

Snap caps... get your muscles familiar with a non recoiling gun

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
