I can tell you how to fix it. Disassemble it. Throw all parts in a bag, deposit bag in nearest trash receptacle. Then go buy a Glock



I don't know anyone in Marysville. But there is(was) a guy at Oly Arms in Olympia that is supposed to do good 1911 work.

The fellow down at Olympic you'd probably want to talk with is Mike Hadley. He's a pretty good local guy, with good prices and quick service. He sets up independantly at the WAC show in Puyallup, sitting next to the Olympic Arms booth, picking up side jobs.



I've used Mike in the past and he knows 1911s backward and forward. Straight, honest guy to deal with.

I had the guys at oly do some work to my 9mm 1911. It all turned out top notch. I had them install a bar-sto barrell, Novak sights and a wilson MSH.

Here's the story. I had a trigger job done on my pistol. I also changed all of my springs with a wilson combat kit. I had an wilson extended slide stop, match triger and ambi safety installed. My wifes a lefty. I did this probably ten months ago. The smith used his magazine for the work. I just got around to checking the gun. I had FTF, the slide would not lock back on the last round. I use Mcgar mags beside colt. I notices the slide hanging up on the mcgars. When I released the mags the slide would move freely. With the colt it moved freely but was 50/50 on locking the slide back. One of the things I was going to do before I went shooting was rebuild the mags. Now that I had the problems that a must. I think I should have givin the smith my mags to do fit checks.

I haven't owned a 1911 for years, but I'll give it a go:

Do you still have the stock slide release? If you do, swap out the aftermarket extended one and run a few magazines through it and see what you get.

yeah I still have all the original parts. I thought about doing that. What sucks is I want to get back into plinking and such, but this is my CCW gun and it has to be 100% reliable. Grumpies is who did the job, I think I'll contact him on saturday to let him know what happened. Hopefully I can do some troubleshooting for him before then.
