1911 Sam Wesson?
Hello all/Resonce to Ish and Dillinger
Ron L here = SERESURPLUS
I've not heard of that Brand, do you mean Dan wesson?
I have to agree with and Echo Dillingers questions? I'd look at changing a few things, before giving up on it and calling it "UNRELIABLE"? Could be all sorts of problems? I'd look to try Different ammo, first! Then, as Dillenger said, I'd look hard at what your primer strikes look like on the fired brass?
If it's the same reguardless of different ammo, you might have:
1. Weak mainspring - Replace it, with a Wolff kit
2. Bad Firing pin - Look for wear and broken off tip, this will show on Primer strike area
3, Dirty or rusted firing pin, spring or firing pin chanber
4. Overall Dirty or Foiled firing area of Bolt and weapon? Scrub all parts and examione while your clening them out?
Just a few things to try, all else fails, take it to a 'GUNSMITH", where he will do all we recommended above and charge ya money to do it? LOL Seriuoly, do all that, let us know what ya find? we can help ya get it working right!
