    Lightweight commander 1911 ftf

    Anyone have experience with the commanders hanging up the last RN bullet. Cartridge ends up jammed at an angle on the feed ramp. This is RN factory white box Winchester ammo. Not much of a 1911 or Colt fan right now ...

    How frequently did it happen? First thing I would suspect would be the magazine. Second would be limp wristing it expecting it to be the last round.

    I would try two things first...Change ammo and have someone else try shooting the gun..Load magazines to full capacity.

    Try changing magazine or magazine spring. You could also carefully polish the feed ramp.

    These both came with the gun. They don't appear serviceable. What would be a good magazine purchase? Wilson Combat?

    Genuine Colt or Wilson Combat for magazines. I would also say Shooting Star but Chip McCormick sold them to Wilson Combat. I've never had issues with any of these. I'm sure there are other good brand magazines...just have never tried them. Stay away from unmarked gun show mags...they're cheap for a reason.

    New gun or used? How many rounds thru it?
    Check extractor tension. If it’s not just right it can prevent the round’s rim from slipping underneath it and feeding properly.
    If it has too much tension on it it can create your issue.

    Few years old, not more than 300-400 rounds through it. Bought it new, was really busy at the time. Put some rounds through it and it ftf. Got frustrated and put the gun down. Picked it up months later etc. Everything here is Colt. Ordered a Wilson Combat magazine today. We will see....
