Need help with 1911 problem
I recently bought a new RIA compact 1911. On my first trip to the range with it, I had malfunctions. The last round of the magazine would sometimes FTE, and the slide never locked open when the last round would eject. With an empty mag, pulling back the slide, it will lock open. I only have the stock mag, and am wondering if this is most likely a mag problem, or slide release. I really love this gun and the way it shoots and feels, am really hoping I don't have a lemon. I put 100 rounds through it at the range, it had no problem with Blazer, Federal or Golden Sabre, even when mixed in mag.
