Found an old Thompson 1911A1 in the box. I'm not sure when it was made, maybe about 10-15 years ago? I have heard bad reviews on them, but for $300.00 I couldn't pass it up. Went to the range and ran 100 rounds of WWB thru it with only one stove pipe. The fit is good and everything works. i'm happy!http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y49/krob725/100_3695.jpg

They're actually OK. I've seen a couple that worked well.

If the stovepipes keep up at that rate, install an extended ejector. They are cheap and easy to install.

thanks!
I'll look into that ejector. It's my first 1911 so I really didn't know what to expect. A buddy of mine said it might stove pipe a few times until i get a few hundred rounds thru it and get it broken in. I've always shot Rugers and never had any break-in issues.
