Got a kimber classic custom, and the case doesn't fully eject. I shoot the Winchester BEB 230g. On an average of 150 rounds, it seems to do this about 3 to 4 times, every signle time it happened second to the last round in the magazine. I use the Wilson 47D 8 rounders. I saw the troubleshooting picture on www.m1911.org/technic5.htm but mine doesn't look like that. Instead the case is in a straight forward position. After looking at the case, there were a small dent around the rim of the case. I also had this problem recently with the GoldMatch, but it only happen once. What is the problem here? the GoldMatch is new, only 200 rounds through this gun. What do I need to do to fix this problem. Does this happen to all Kimber or any 1911. Thanks

The problem is called "stovepiping," or "smokestacking," and is discussed more fully in Kimberlady's thread, "FTF and stovepipes on two Kimbers" further down on the thread list page.

Good luck.
