I would

Take the gun to someone you trust, hopefully a smith, and have the ignition parts inspected. There is a snag or burr somewhere. Also, the creep and vagueness of the trigger alone would warrant a good...

PM me for address

I don't do Paypal, sorry they are anti-gun and I won't support them. You can PM me for my address and you can either send a MO or check. Please include about $5.00 for shipping.

Another Clue

"Both pistols were custom Colt 1911s built for me, so that they were about as "new" as you can get when I took delivery. The 50,000 round gun was a long slide built...

Dumb question but

Have you polished the area on the mag where the disconnect contacts it? Have you polished the foot of the disconnect?

Use modeling clay

Roll a thin strip of clay and lay it in the lug channels in the slide. Then measure the thickness of the clay in the channel.

"tactical" yeah

I took a local class 3 years ago for ongoing NRA training. EVERY instructor in the class and at least half the class showed up in tan 5.11 pants, black instructors belt and some sort of "tac" shoes....

That makes sense

So who is more at fault, him for keeping the money or the "gunsmiths" for working for peanuts.
