"It is a $380 pistol, buy once buy right."

Gotta love the internet. Extremely helpful advice in this situation.

It has been awhile since I've seen Auto Ordnances selling for $380.00. More like $500 these days. Even Rock Island Armory is going for more then $380.00 these days.

Any number of things could be causing the problem you are describing, and they are not just endemic to this being a lower price point pistol and could be found in production 1911s from any manufacturer. We would certainly need more information. When the slide stops can you press it into battery with your thumb? If so I am thinking either weak recoil spring or excessive extractor tension. If you cannot, then it is possible you have a more serious issue, google "three point jam" or "stem bind". Your magazines may be a culprit also, especially if you are using the stock Auto Ord mags.

Hopefully someone more knowledgeable will come along but we need some more details.
