Alright, I just got back from the gunsmith. This is a great guy who loves working on 1911's. His own carry piece is one that he custom built himself on a Caspian frame/slide.

He took my barrel, polished the crap out of the throat. A live round drops in and falls out now if you tip the barrel. He then looked at my extractor. There appeared to be a pretty obvious amount of brass marks on the extractor, so he took it and polished it a bit as well. There was nothing else that he could think of as causing the problems.








This coming weekend, I'm taking it to the rang along with 150 rounds of Blazer Brass ammo. If I have a single FTE, she's going to Springfield for Warranty work. That's all I can think of at the moment.

Well it won't stop eating on me, and I found out that I have time tomorrow....so I'm gonna put some rounds down range.

Here's what I have.

100 Rounds of Winchester White Box 230gr
50 rounds of CCI Blazer 230gr

I'm going to 50 Winchester rounds, then the 50 CCI shells, and then the remaining 50 Winchester rounds. I fihure this ought to at LEAST tell me something when I get done. If all goes well, I'll consider the problem solved......if not, off to Springfield she goes. :9:

Now I'm gonna give it a very GOOD cleaning just so there's no excuses. Will give ya'll a report tomorrow.

KD: IF I'm shooting at a range, it's usually Pigeon Rd. I've only shot at Tac Pro for my CHL certification, and while it was REALLY nice....it's a bit spendy for a college student.
