Gi model

A friend of mine bought a new GI model and when he test fired it he said it was mashing the case mouths together. Any ideas on what is causing this?

A standard SA G.I. model will ding the mouth of the case as part of its normal ejection cycle. The case mouth hits the edge of the ejection port. The Mil-Spec and other SA models have the ejection port opened and the edges beveled to prevent this from happening. This happens with any 1911 pistol with the original configuration JMB ejection port. On my Colt, the cases are closed maybe 25% at most.

If this is all your friend is seeing, its normal.

Just lower the ejection port and flaring it should take care of this small problem.
Any good smith can do this quickly.
Two types of people in this world,
those that talk about doing it and the ones who just do it. Are you the former or the latter?
