CCO question?




Shot my CCO yesterday and it was flawless with checkmate, Tripp, and Wilson mags. The problem is when I try to clear a loaded chamber...it always jams on me.(WWB 230 rb)It doesn't matter if I pull the slide back quickly or slowly. What is the proper technique for clearing a loaded chamber?Should the live round eject out like a spent cartridge or drop out the bottom of the gun? I hope this isn't a stupid question.

Not a dumb question at all.

The 1911 was meant to eject spent brass, not live rounds. Literally.

Unless you have the ejection port modified (cut bigger in front) then you'll just have to wiggle and waggle the live rounds out.

There is a pic just posted with a live round mod, I'll see if I can find it and steal it.

Oh, and the only DUMB question is the one you don't ask. Everyone learned this stuff one little thing at a time. So ask away, luckily this is the nicest place on the web. DW folks are good folks.

Beautiful gun and pic courtesy of Asiparks. (Hope you don't mind I pirated it.)

Here is a 1911 with a live round cut. Notice the front cut in the ejection port. That is what it is for....ejecting live rounds with relative ease. It's nice, you don't neeeeed it. Wiggle and waggling them out is fine.

Also some types of live ammo will eject, while some won't. So you could always change ammo.

I was taught to rotate the gun counter clockwise so it is past the horizontal position then pull the slide back to unload a live round. This works very well doing it slow or fast on my CCO. Gravity is your friend, it ejects out the port with this method.
