Wilson Combat gets my vote as well.

There are no complaints with a gun that "has about 60-70 rounds through it".

Read this and PLEASE take NO Offense;

Break-in is a criminal activity or Noob mis-speak.

In the 1911 world there are two items tied for first place in FEED ISSUES (FTF), Magazines and/or Ammo. If you follow the above "New Gun Test" and use 230 gr Ball Ammo for this test you can be sure you are not introducing variables that only cause you to chase your tail trying to resolve.

When it comes to magazines; Tripp Research, and never look back.

If you never listen to me before, do yourself a favor and pay attention to this old man.

Tripp Research Inc. 1911 Magazines Call Aaron @ Tripp (877.837.9445) and order one. (Tell him canebrake said hi.) Run the Cobra mag and if for any reason you find it less than flawless, I'll buy it from you including shipping to you and to me! My money is on you ordering more Cobra Mags. Yes, they are that good!


Before you buy any mag, read the following;

Tripp’s Cobra Magazine Test

I bought a kimber pro carry II

1911 and Hollow Points

1911 magazine question, Cane..Anyone

Upgrade your Mags

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

LOl. A new gun should shoot no matter what. Mag issues and ammo are the problem as you say most of the time. If it's not that then send the gun in as something is wrong. I need to try tripp, but haven't yet but will.

I just got mine a couple weeks back and love it. Had the same issue for the first couple mags. It happens because of Ruger's mag followers. If you slap the mag into the magwell the first round will jump forward in the mag just a bit. (no more than a gnats ass) And that's more than enough for the extractor to miss the round and you have a miss feed.

It's similar to what happens with AR's when people beat the mags into them.

A rule that I was taught young was, after loading a magazine slap the back of it against your palm so all of the rounds seat properly. You'll see less problems. Much like I did.

Wilson combat mags are always a good investment as well though! Can never have enough of those!

Try using one less round in the mag. Could be spring tension since it occurs with 1st roumf

Got my SR1911 about 6-8 months ago. Never had any issues. Eats up whatever ammo you put through it.

I'm sorry, I don't believe you. The Ruger 1911 is a myth. If it existed, I'd have mine by now.
