Assuming you are using factory ammo....that this isn't your first 1911 etc....

First thing I'm doing is trying different mags. Colt mags are made by Checkmate, and they're okay. But I'd be trying some other mags and see if it's mag dependant. Wilson's, Tripp, etc....

If you don't have any other mags available, load your existing mags full and let them sit until your next range session. Sometimes new mags need to take a spring set before they'll run reliably.

EDIT: After rereading your thread I see these aren't new mags. I'd still leave them loaded till your next range trip as you don't know how many rds are through them.
