    I bought this pistol in like new condition. in origonal box and paperwork. The first time I shot the pistol, It was jamming. The spent shell on ejection was coming into contact and jamming with the upcoming round, leaving the slide left open. I am using the factory mag and have tried over and over to shoot the problem out of this pistol but it is every single shot that it has a problem. I have tried to research the issue online and have found nothing. I am in need of some advice. Thanks, Mike

    If you have a pic or can photograph a mock-up of what the jam looked like, that would help to maybe determine what is going on. With 1911's, it can be a lot of things - magazines, ammo, recoil spring, feed ramp, dirty gun, lubrication, and on and on. Again, a pic or further description of the jam would help.The 1911 forums are a wealth of resources as well...

    Bad or missing ejector not to be confused with extractor.

    I contacted Magnum Research and I am happy to say that they have an excellent customer service department. Only one day after they received my 1911 they had it repaired, test fired and in the mail back in my direction. Hands down they have my trust, respect and my future business. Thank you to all the advice from fellow members.

    The fix as it was explained to me was a bad extracter. It was not replaced but instead adjusted. Should have it back tomorrow. If there is anything more I will add it to the thread.

    You had me at Desert Eagle. A range I used to frequent had a sign up that said:

    YOU CAN RENT THIS 44 DESERT EAGLE IF YOU WANT BUT IT HAS BROKEN 11 TIMES AND WE WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR IT JAMMING OR BREAKING ON YOU

    Glad the Magnum Research came through. I have Baby Eagle 1 .40. Other than my 1911 its been the most flawless gun that I have shot and since it doesn't have the current model slide mount auto decocker, it is DA/SA but can be carried cocked and locked. Just alittle on the heavy side for cc.

    Excellent. Got to shoot my Buddy's Desert Eagle .50 Cal and it shakes your innards with only the muzzle bast!
