    My mags work fine in my Fullsize 1911, their brand new. My test without the slide proved that the mags are working, they push up the slide stop. Do you think my recoil spring is too strong?

    The only problem magazine I have is my Chip Mcormick 8rd. I can over insert it if the slide is already locked back and the slide doesn't always lock back when I use it.

    I bought a 10rd Chip Mcormick mag that wont feed rounds. My SA 7rd mags wont drop out of the well, after the last shot is fired. Willson 47D mags work flawlessly.

    Okay, first off... are you using the Shooting Stars or PowerMags? I've used CMC SS mags in my SA Champion and it functioned without issue, same with my two Colts. PowerMags are said to be even better.

    Might try replacing the springs with Wolff +10% and see if that helps. No problems with the plunger tubes, right? Everything is staked tightly there?

    I took mine to the range today, it functioned great both w/ HP & FMJ. No failures after 100 rounds but more testing is required. I used the CMC 8 rd. Power Mags. I believe it was the wilson bullet proof slide stop, not a cheap fix. My wilson mags still will not lock the slide back, only SA & CMC's.

    Glad you got yours to work, will have to see what SA does with my gun and try the CM mags again. You sure have good taste in guns, BTW.

    Yep, ran both FMJ and HP in my Champion. Everything from Hydrashocks to SXT and Hornady (XTS?). Might try Wolff spring replacements and see if that helps any.

    I was contemplating this but for now all is running well. I only hope Rocky will have the same result as I did after getting it back from SA.
