So with a fresh mind on the situation, I played around with my 1911 and a loose round today, and I took a picture of where the round was. Turns out it was not completely in the chamber, but it was close to the ejection port, because I could get to it with my fingernails to help extract it. Disregard the loaded magazine in the picture, because when the malfunction happened, it was on the last round. Maybe this will help diagnose what happened. IMG_1482.jpg

That's darn near fully chambered.
So same thing I said before, you had a once in a lifetime, completely unexplained, inertia feed.

Looks definitely like a magazine issue.

Now the fun part begins. I've got to figure out which mag it is. I just dumped it in with my other mags, didn't even think to separate it!
Mag lips too wide, allowing round to pop up with inertia as PA suggested? I'd suspect the mag is the culprit.

Just means more shooting fun, finding the culprit.
