Small Problem?
 
My brother in law has a Springfield gi 1911. The problem is when you go to eject a full shell out manually. 50% of them hang up and won't kick out. We haven't shot it yet so don't know if it will have problems then to.

50% seems high, even considering ejectors are designed to work for empty shells. If it ejects correctly while shooting, it's probably OK. I would guess that the ejector as it is set now may make the gun be a little picky about brands of ammo, but that is just speculation.

Shoot it, bet you are not racking the slide with enough vigor.

I agree. 1911s are recoil operated. The fired case is actually pushing itself out.

Just went out side and shot 5 rounds through it. One of the spent shells ended up backwards in the action. The rest of the failures are the feed ramp needs polished.

I've had $1600 Kimbers that do the same thing but function fine. Don't worry about it

I seriously doubt it need the feedramp polished- It has nothing to do with ejection- only feeding. More likely the ejector needs tweeking-

1. Check extractor tension

2. Tune ejector

3. If it's reloads, check the OAL. Long
loaded rounds might bumb the bullet nose
on the slide/end of the barrel.
