|I got this for my 3-1/2 inch compact Officer's RIA1911 and unfortunately, it just will not work.
Now bear in mind the following: a) my 1911 is not yet completely broken in; b) it is a compact model, so it doesn't have the "get-go" of the full slide models; and c) I have experienced feeding issues previously with this pistol and have had trouble loading HPs. I contacted Armscor and they recommended I use Hornady's Critical Defense rounds with the polymer tip, but I haven't tried them out yet. Anywho, I just wanted to mention three issues that were already taken into account before this magazine was put into use.
With all of that said, I still could not get this magazine to function properly, even when fully loaded with round nose FMJs (which do feed properly in my other magazines, so I would imagine they would also work in this magazine - they do not).
I took it to the range and tried running the mag and it would fail to feed every time I fired. It would either get stuck during feeding, or there would be a double feed/fail to eject. I just could not get this magazine to function properly.
Is it just my 1911? I don't know. Like I said, my other magazines function properly with FMJs, while this one will not function with anything.
I give it two bullets just because it looks freaking awesome sticking out of my 1911. I just really wish it worked.|
