New OEM 1911 Magazines Nose Diving and Getting Stuck on Last Round

Hi everyone,

The OEM mags with my Springfield 1911 Range Officer Elite 9mm have problems.

The both always nose down after 6/7 rounds and lock up on the last round. I think they keep locking on this dimple the mags have. I’m shooting with regular Remington FMJ 115gr Remington 9mm.

I ended up getting some Wilson Combat mags but wanted to know if there is a fix for it, thanks!

just curious...did it start locking back after you adjusted your grip?? i remember your other thread about this gun.

as far as nose dicing, have you tried standard FMJ or round nose 9mm? have you tried all sorts of different ammo?

not sure what that dimples about, do your wilson mags have it?

Hahaha yup! I was riding the slide release preventing it from locking back.

And yeah I‘ve shot FMJ 124gr Herter’s, 115gr American Eagle and 115gr Remington. I got so pissed off that I just stopped using the mags and kept using the Wilson’s

and yeah the Wilson’s have the dimple too.
