Somebody help me out with this? I can't seem to get a full magazine to shoot without a failure to extract about every third or forth round. I have tried 20 different magazines that all function flawlessly in all of my other 1911s. I have tried a variety of ammunition with same results. The fired case will easily gravety drop from chamber after magazine is removed. The external extractor appears to have no wear, in fact, the gun has only had 400-500 rounds through it since I bought it new and would have thousands through it if it weren't such a pain in the ass to shoot. I'm also at odds as to how to get the guide rod and spring out as it does not have a conventional 1911 barrel bushing but rater something that looks like a little piece of pipe. Color me stupid, but I can't figure out how to field strip it Everybody keeps telling me what a great gun it is but so far, I think I would have to tape ten one hundred dollar bills to the grip to make it worth anything near what I paid for it.
