Default Taurus PT1911 issue

My dads 1911 is a sweet shooter but the brass is starting to come out a little deformed the base of the bullet is kinda at a slight angle and the mouth of the casing is coming out as a slight oval any ideas?

Brass is hitting the slide on ejection.

How many rounds has been through it so far?

Get a new recoil spring and compare lengths. If the old is 1" or more shorter than the new, it is time to change it.
