  1. And Glock is serious when they make that threat. I did get a hint; we’ll sort of. They said don’t be expecting a revolutionary breakthrough because this isn’t it.
  2. I thought I mentioned this already. Most of the time if it is the last round in the mag it is an inertia feed and almost always because the slide is outrunning the mag. Sometimes a stronger mag spring masks the problem if a stronger recoil spring doesn’t take care of it. This is not the sound of extractor tension being the culprit; we normally see that with rounds throughout the entire magazine. A dirty or wet mag can also contribute to inertia feed.
  3. You are only 20 minutes away from GT’s. My friend picked up a nearly new 21SF for $400 OTD a month ago.
  4. One more thing, 1911 mags should be dry as a bone and as free of dust and dirt as possible. The mags needs to be extremely dry.
  5. It’s worth a trip back to RIA. They will eventually get it running or send you a new one. What happens if you load one round into a mag and try to release the slide? Does it go into battery 100 times out of 100? I really believe you are experiencing the dreaded inertia feed. An extended magazine release will do nothing.
  6. Have an experienced 1911 shooter try it and with different mags while you are at it. Wilson Combat mags are ok. Many of us have taken Wilson Combat mags and replaced the springs with TrippCobra springs and/or followers. Also, unless your NGeorgia ammo kaboomed the 1911, RIA will never know remanufactured ammo was shot. In fact most of NGeorgia Reloading ammo is made from virgin brass anyway. They are an ATF licensed ammo manufacturer. I’m not a fan of N Georgia Reloading; I have seen many failures mostly because of weak ammo. Which WC mag do you have?
  7. I have a CVA in .243 and love it. I bought it because it was recommended by a friend that had a 45-70 and used it over about a half dozen other rifles in his safe.
  8. I will happily meet you at your range or mine and we try some known to work mags in your and try your mags in my known to work 1911.
  9. I would probabbly just write it off as a tight, new gun. And stick with ammo it has known to like. I recently acquired a 1911 that does the exact same thing but only with my handloads and 230 cast bullets. It has not done it with several different brands of ball ammo and several hollow points.
  10. Those 129 gr Hydro shocks have never expanded in any test I have ever seen. The HST micro is a good load though.
  11. You don’t see 337 no locks too often. I have a 342ti which I always forgot how much lighter it is than an airweight until I handle the two. Actually, the 337 is lighter than the 342 by about a couple of grams and is the lightest 38spl ever produced by S&W.

    Value on S&W 624

    I’m not too up on 624 values but I believe it may be worth $1k.

    UT vs GA State

    Well, I guess any of those fears of losing JP to Bama when Sabin leaves are dismissed.
