Hey all. I have a ria tactical 1911. The factory magazine works flawlessly. I use a cmc mag or a colt mag and it will feed the first round. When I shoot the first round the magazine drops. It will attempt to feed the next round but it is also dropping the mag at the same time. Help appreciated.
Try this for a little troubleshooting. Lock the slide back and then insert one of the mags your having problems with and see if it locks firmly into place while the slide is locked open. If it does not then you know you've got a mag catch issue, but if it does it probably means you're not seating the magazines with enough force when loading them. If the mag catch is the problem the call Arnel at
RIA and they'll ship you out a replacement, their customer service rocks!
