Stopped by the store today. They are shipping it back to S&W themselves, hopefully the turn around might be a bit faster as they are a rather larger retailer for S&W. The guy said this is the first issue with these he's had and the others he has sold have been fine. He was convinced I was limp wristing. Towards the end of my shooting I might have been, I was just blasting rounds cause I was angry, but this is not my first 1911 and not even my first S&W 1911 and I never had those issues before.

I will update this when I get it back.

FWIW, if I were function-testing a repaired 1911, I'd choose to use factory ammunition that runs more toward the upper end of the normal power levels for 230gr ball or hollowpoint loads.
I agree with you, however if it won't run with cheaper factory ammo I don't want it regardless. The most this can be for me at this point is a fun gun. I do not feed my fun guns expensive ammo.
Know the status of your weapon
Keep your muzzle oriented so that no one will be hurt if the firearm discharges
Keep your finger off the trigger until you have an adequate sight picture
Maintain situational awareness
