    I recall an article which covers this well - but right now am not sure where it is. Could be it was on the 1911 forum.

    Hang in there - and we'll probably find what you want - or a search will help too maybe. Could even try Googling, with various search criteria.

    You might find Gabe Suarez' book "Tactical Pistol Marksmanship" helpful. In chapter 14 he describes malfunctions, what causes them and how to clear them. In any case The book is a good read.

    One of the guys I shoot with regularly places dummy rounds in his mags and has done this so often he will clear the action automatically and in a very fluid motion.

    The hardest to clear seems to be a double feed.

    The Gabe Suarez' book sounds good.
    I will have to see if the library has a copy.
    I was really hoping for an online source.
    My Google searches have not turned up anything.

    Try the GunTec Dictionary from MidwayUSA.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    If you go to 10-8 Forums and go into the 1911 section, they have an excellent pictorial on various malfunctions.
