awww jammy awww
arent rock islands kind of shitty?
relative to what?
just average brands like colt or springfield
Have you checked/polished your feed ramp?
RIA's aren't on the same level as Nighthawks, but they do make a great GI type or base gun. Sounds like either the ramp isn't cut far enough down, or perhaps the mag/mag catch is holding the magazine too low. Get ahold of Ivan at RIA, he'll make it right for you.
Heh. I didn't know where this was. I got direct linked to it.
Try new mags maybe? I use Wilson Combats in both of my kimbers and I have no feeding or jamming issues. I did with McCormicks (10rds) and Kimber Factory mags (7 rd), but the WCs have been flawless, regardless of the condition of the gun (clean or very dirty) and the type of ammo (reloads or factory).
I've had exactly one jam out of my Rock, out of close to 1,000 rounds. There have been good suggestions already, polish the feed ramp and go with Wilson Combat mags. You could always try different ammo first though, I use CCI Blazer and UMC without problems
feed ramps as others have said or possible bad batch of ammo, I had a batch of IMI that would be pushed into the case when it went to be fed into the chamber.
jesus, what brand ammo is that?
My 1911 was doing a 3 point jam pretty consistently and pushing the bullet back into the brass like that, but not anywhere near that extreme. It was pretty forcefully jamming too with the 22lb spring.
Haha, you're the guy that strangly stalks toeshoes...
Then he better ditch the .45 and go for .577 tyranasaur
Mabye you should have bought a real 1911.
Like a Norinco.

god damn, that's a lot of jamming, mine hasn't jammed yet after the first 350 rounds with the novak mag that came with it. I'd try picking up a different brand mag just to see if it help. I have an old colt 1911 that I sometimes shoot and I've got some weird feeding problems that I suspect are related to the magazine so I am to try a new mag first.
I love my RIA, the only oddity I have with mine is it in the only handgun I own that with the slide back you can't just pop a round in the chamber and let the slide go. I round just will not settled in the chamber and the slide will not drive home either.
That tends to be a non recommended practice on most guns anyway so it might not be the best habit to into. Just for anyone who might be reading and thinks thats a really cool sounding idea, your extractors will generally thank you for not doing it.
Ya, that's not good on 1911's as their internal extractors aren't made to be bend that far out.
I have had some BAD luck with older Independance. Maybe try some other ammo when you run different mags.
My springfield mil-spec jams like this too. I have the habit of loading a new mag in with the slide locked back and then hitting the slide release to load a new round in the chamber. So I shouldn't do this? I should rack the slide after the new mag is inserted? I got into this habit with my G19 after a saw a couple guys at the range doing this.
What is not recommended is having the slide back and placing a round in the chamber and then releasing the slide. In order to properly seat the round the extractor has to bend pretty far around the rim of the round.
Allowing the slide to strip one from the magazine is not a problem
Damn, that doesn't solve my probelm then. I'm about to try different ammo. I've been using Winchester white box. I might try federal or something to see how that feeds. After that, mabye some aftermarket mags might solve the problem?
