Normally, no.
But the SA is built to closer tolerances than some others.

Find out what works, and try to stay with it.

Some are, some are not. Did you clean and lube before your range trip ? A break period of a few hundred rounds may be needed to smooth out any issues.

Break in is: shoot, clean, and shoot some more. A few hundred rounds of any ammo the gun likes will do it.

Break is the smoothing out of any machining marks/roughness by shooting it.

I posted this one night some time ago when I got fed up with the term "break-in". I think at the moment my blood pressure spiked and yes, I did go off on a rant. It has been cleaned up to a tad more respectable level and several of the flames are removed but I think it still holds water in my mind's eye. YMMV

Take a look:

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

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!

So I don't mean to be disrespectful or unappreciative... but I don't totally agree... to not field strip and clean any gun until after 500 rnds is lazy IMHO... but the rest is good info and duely noted.... thank you

I have a DW that had a bit of fussiness initially. It had a mag that it didn't like. Some FMJ ammo fed when other similar ammo wouldn't. Nothing too serious, but enough to be annoying. It settled down rather nicely with use (150 to 200 rounds). My SA Trophy Match was great right out of the box. I don't believe it's ever not functioned with serviceable ammo (My early reloads were less than stunning at times.)
I have a problem with the mandated 500 rounds Kimber break-in requirement. I think it's wasteful since in many cases, an owner may not shoot that much in a year. However, there is some benefit to running a couple hundred rounds through a new 1911 before getting irate and calling it too many names.
Also, hunt down a Wilson Combat or Tripp Research magazine if feed issues persist. Good magazines can cure a lot of 1911 digestive issues. My OEM SA Mags have never given me any problems, but they are by no means excellent. I use Wilson mags, no drama, no fiddling, they just work.

Liberals are constantly telling us about the poor and oppressed in this country. With that in mind, why do they feel the need to keep importing poor people from other countries?
