Greetings from the US.

Your issues could be magazine related. Take all of your mags, stuff them full and let them set overnight.

Many mag related failures will disappear once the mag springs have taken a set. They'll be easier to load, rounds will strip off them much easier and chances are you pistol will run fine afterwards.

Does the gun run fine with any other mags that you've tried???

Obviously the gun needs to be wet. Not to belabor that point but many first time 1911 shooters do not adequately lube their guns. Make sure the rails, the barrel/slide lugs and bushing are all well lubed.
