STI Elektra feed problems




Went to the range today for the first time with my Elektra. Fired about 50 rounds through the pistol. The first magazine was Remington Golden Sabres. Every single round fired was at first a failure to load all the way. I had to hit the back of the slide for the round to load fully. I switched to Magtech FMJ's and didn't have the problem again. Anyone else have this experience? Will it be an issue after more hollow points fired and it's broken in more? Is this just par for the course with a 3" 1911? Should I send it back to STI?

i've got a shadow 40s&w. i had ftf problems, called sti and david told me they were redesigning the mags(metal form colt defender). i've found that wilson combat 47ox and kimpro sst comp. (they are 45acp) feed the best. i've run 490rds so far and pistol seems to be running better. i'd look at what mag you have and go from there, mine's new too only had a few weeks. i haven't run any hps but 40s are tc. let me know if it helps but that's where i had to start. good luck, i love the gun dead on when feeding
