I've got a matched pair of stainless 1911's from SA. The 45 functions fine, but the 9mm version almost always fails to hold the slide back on the last shot. Got 5 SA 9mm mags and its the same no matter what ammo used or how well the gun is cleaned. Any RKI's out there who might know what I need to check, or should i just send it back to SA for a checkup?

when checking with empty mags, the slide always stays back when manually checking. when firing live rounds is when it failed to hold back...

thanks for the tip mikey - good suggestion on trying different ammo. i was thinking it was/is the magazine spring being too weak. i've been using ga arms 115 and 147gr loads (factory reloads), but have some hotter factory winchester that i can try out and see if that is indeed the problem...
