I own one , I bought new.
Had acouple of hiccups because the magazines were new.
This is fairly common with new 1911's.
When you have new mags load them before your first trip to the range and leave them loaded for a few days.
Nice ! I picked one up recently as well.
Question , what guide rod /recoil spring set up are in your guns?
Mine has the Everlast system. Trying to figure out the correct spring to run in it, original owner removed the flat spring and replaced it with a standard spring.
I just bought this one new 3-4 weeks ago. Shot it one range trip , 50 rounds with no issues . I liked it, but wish it was a full size grip instead of the officer grip. It's a beautiful pistol and very , very well made. I have 7 1911s and it has the best out of the box trigger of all of them. Here it is with new Esmeralda grips.
