New Colt super 38 owner with problems
I just got a 1950's manufacture Colt super 38 and I am having problems with it feeding ammo. It is in very good shape, looks to have very few round shot out of it.
When I attempt to chamber a round, the round goes in about 1/3 of the way. It then locks up the slid and I have to pull hard on the slid it to get it to come back. The round stays in the chamber and does not get pulled out by the ejector. It looks like the round is at to hard of an angle and it is hitting he top of the chamber. If I chamber a round then put in the mag with a round in it then fire, the gun shoots great but it does not pick up the second round. I then attempt to chamber a round. The round then picks up but get jams.
I am also finding the mag is not seating properly. I slap it home and then I can pull the mag out with out pushing the mag release button.
The question is, is it the mag or is it the feed ramp. If it is the mag any suggestions on where to get a good mag. If it is the feed ramp am I up the Sh>> river with no hope. Will it cost me a lot to fix this problem. Any help will make this new Colt 1911 owner happy, Thanks
