Default Feed Problem CMP 1911

Iím having a feed problem with my recently received 1911. Several brands of 230 grain fmj ammo will not feed up the ramp. A tap on the slide with your hand and it will feed the round. Fires and then same thing. The 1911 works fine with Springfield mags so should I try a different military mag and is one mfg better than another? Thanks.

I have the same problem with the mag sent with my pistol. 6th and 7th round don’t sit right and won’t feed. Load 5 and all is good. Try another mag.

You might look at the extractor. It tension is too tight, or geometry is off this can cause feeding problems.

You did oil it up first(easy stuff first)? Try a different mag. One mag I have will lock back slide after last shot with my other 1911, but, it won’t do it on my CMP.

The only mag that doesn't feed for me is the one that came with it. My WWi and WWII mags feed everything just fine, to include hollow points.

Maybe bent feed lips? My Checkmate mag even fed some 185gr weird shaped wadcutters that I had laying around. My mag has straight lips(not hybrid) that makes loading a little harder. With those 185’s I was surprised with no problems from a stock GI barrel(not throated)!

442, I would recommend you take that mag apart and clean/lube it. The mag that came with my CMP gun was pretty sticky when trying to load it. Took it apart and found some dirt,grit,and rust. Cleaned and lubed it, it was much smoother and ran just fine at the range.

It will never work right. Pistol is a reject. I will give you $400 to get it off your hands.
