    Taurus PT 1911 Double Feeding, help please

    Hey guys,
    I bought a Taurus PT1911, yeah well that may have been my first mistake, but I like the gun...I just need to get it firing right!

    Problem:
    Every time I shoot the weapon tries to double feed. I've cleaned the crap out of the gun, and tried new magazines in it and the same result. Nothing appears out of the norm as far as the inside of the weapon goes.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Make and attach a video that shows you trying to operate the pistol so we can see exactly what you're doing and how it is causing a malfunction. The problem could be with the pistol or with you, but we won't know unless we can see what's going on.

    I am assuming you are using standard ball ACP. Try also changing the spring. Other than that, send it back to Tarus and make sure there is the correct upper specs milled into it.

    Is it really a doube feed or a failure to extract?

    As JD pointed out , check the extractor also the srpring may be weak. Is this a brand new gun or used? You should be able to find many reference guides and videos to help find the issue.
