Not sure why its doing this...Maybe there is some break in time with either the gun itself or the mags...After clearing the round ( and I think it has been the first or second round every time) the rest of the mag has been no problem...
This is my first experience with a 1911...Anyone seen or heard of anything like this? Thanks for the help...
There are no complaints with a gun that "has about 60-70 rounds through it"

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
