Talio, 1911A1 question from you. Stoppage

Figured you or somebody might be able to figure this out. I just replaced the spring, 16 pounds and went shooting. Still same issues. The round gets partially stuck in the chamber. I have tried 8 different mags and even the stock Scofield mag. I have tried 3 different types of ammo. All round nose ammo, no HP.

I shot 20 rounds today and it did the same thing every time, even after replacement of the guide rod spring. When I got home, I replaced the extractor. I will try it again next time at the range with the next extractor. The gun is a 1944 Ithaco 1911A1. Bore looks great and I cleaned the hell out of this gun. Any suggestions appreciated. I am in the process of making a case for it but I just want it to run well. This picture is exactally what is going on...





No making fun of the case, I ma doing some work on it.

Feeding I assume?

Remove the extractor and try dropping the slide on a round, it should feed. If it does PM me, I have plenty of them.

EDIT""" I missed the part where you replaced the extractor. You probably already fixed it.

Function test it first, drop the slide 3-4 times and make sure theres no hammer follow and then drop the slide on a round with the new extractor installed. It should work unless that ones tweaked to.

Correct, it is a feeding issue. Since I have the new extractor in I will take it to the range and try it out one more time. Will let you know how it goes. Function check is fine, but was also fine before I replaced the spring and extractor. Works fine with snap caps.

Talio,
Looks like we both were correct about the extractor. Works fine now even with 8 round mags. Gun is now finally cased and given the respect it deserves. Time to shoot the Kimber Raptor II and Colt 70 series Combat Commander 1911s from now on. Thanks again Talio. Now looking for a matching number Walther P38 WWII model to make up for the Walther P1 that the frame blew up on.

Might be interested in the P38. Send me some pics if you can and price. Appreciate it. Does it have import markings? Shoot me a PM with the year and maker code. Not looking for a CYQ Spreewerke.

It is a CYQ Spreewerke but it is numbers matching AND it has usgi bring back papers. It was carried back from WWII and has two document papers from the military that let the soldier who brought it back do it legally. The soldiers name is on the paperwork and his units history can be tracked. Papered USGI bring backs are ultra rare. This is the only one I've ever seen in my years of collecting. Most soldiers tossed the papers once they got home or the gun was sold and papers lost. I'm looking for $2000 but I may take trades.

Heres some info on the GI who brought it home.

Thanks Tailo,
but going to have to pass on this one. Sounds nice but not really the one I am looking for. Nice on the papers though.
