Feeding issues!




I have recently acquired a Springfield 1911 V10 ultra compact and am having so issues with feeding some ball ammo and all hp's. I have polishe the feed ramp and just below in magwell and has fixed most of my issues but i still cant fire more than 1 hp from a mag. I am new the 1911 game and need some help!
also the pistol tends to stovepipe the last shell of the mag, i think the extracor is done for and have ordered a new one. Any sugestions other than getting rid pistol (as i love it) will be greatly appreciated.

Polishing the feedramp is generally overrated. IMHO, magazines are more often the culprit, particularly if it won't feed hardball.

Stovepipes on the last round often indicate insufficient extractor tension. Adjusting it isn't difficult.
