Loving My Rock

I just bought me a new Rock Standard 51431 model about a week ago . This is my first 1911 and I am really liking it so far . I've put exactly 100 rounds through it so far and only had one little issue . I had one round not fire and I worked the round out and it had a very faint ding on the primer . I loaded that same round back and it fired just fine so I'm not sure what happened but it fired the next 45 or 50 rounds just fine . Any idea from you experienced 1911 guys what could have caused this ?

Did you tear it all the way down and clean the shipping grease out of it?

Yes I took it all the way down and cleaned it before shooting it and also after the 100 rounds . Pulled the firing pin and spring and checked those but they were fine and firing pin channel is clear . I read somewhere that a primer not seated completely can cause a light strike on the first shot attempt and that it will seat the primer and then it would fire on the second shot attempt . Any more thoughts on this ?

It's possible but unlikely on factory rounds.
