SR1911 Double-Feed As of yesterday, I now have 500 rounds through the Ruger SR1911 I purchased three weeks ago. I have a double-feed situation I'd like to throw up for discussion on this and several other forums. Let me begin by pointing out that I am not experiencing failures to feed (FTF) or failures to eject (FTE). Here's what seems to be happening. As the slide reaches its rearmost position and the empty case is ejected, the next cartridge in line in the magazine is popping up into the breech of its own accord. Then, as the slide begins its forward movement, the cartridge that the slide is trying to strip from the magazine runs into the cartridge already loose in the breech. Regarding magazines and ammunition used: In addition to the seven- and eight-round magazines that came with the SR1911, I purchased an additional seven-round magazine from Ruger. All of my initial shooting was with handloads -- 230 gr hard-cast RN over 5.6 gr Unique with an OAL of 1.22". The problem always seemed to occur using seven-round magazines. Jam occurs every second or third magazine, usually third or fourth round in magazine. While shooting over Memorial day, my brother-in-law handed me five ten-round Wilson magazines loaded with Federal (Walmart bargain) cartridges. The double-feed occured in the third of the five Wilson magazines using this new factory ammo. Yesterday while testing some reduced loads (230 gr RN over 5.0 gr Unique and same 1.22" OAL for use in local matches) I had the same double-feed problem in every other seven-round magazine. However, it was not one or the other of the two magazines -- it happened with both. It never did occur in the eight-round magazine. (I was using a Wolff 16# spring with these light loads. The factory 18.5# spring was in place for all the previous loads.) Before shooting this gun for the first time I completely stripped it, degreased it, and lubed it. (I also lapped the rails and did some other slick-up work.) I also thoroughly cleaned the magazines. While the Ruger SR1911 is my first 1911, I am not new to handguns or autoloaders. I fired more than 7,000 rounds through my Beretta 92 FS and CZ 75 B last year. Neither has ever so much as hiccupped. Even my little Beretta 3032 Tomcat has been malfunction-free for more than 400 rounds. So, what do you think?
