    I appreciate the response! I watched a couple of Youtube vids on this particular issue. Apparently, I'm not the only one (imagine that)!
    One vid suggested switching to Wilson Combat mags (at $50 each), the other vid was a gunsmith that actually diagnosed the problem that the slide lock lug is not making sufficient contact to the mag due to a cheap cast part used by Springfield. His suggestion was to buy a $20 slide stop from Wilson Combat to replace the factory POS part. I am going to look the 1911 over closely tonight and I will probably go with replacing the slide stop first to see if that helps.

    Just be aware that there is no guaranteed drop in replacement part on a 1911. There will most likely be a little bit of finessing with a small needle file required to make everything move smoothly and function 100%.

    Just to keep the thread on track, the EMP below is my only 9mm 1911 type pistol. The SS is my pride and joy though. I built it in the Bob Rodgers RYO class a handful of years ago. If anyone loves messing with 1911s, I cannot recommend that experience enough!

    Colt Government Model, 9mm, Stainless Steel...one of the most, if not the most, dumbest guns I ever sold. I'm almost shamed to even post this. Damn, that was one sweet shooting pistol.

    One last thing. If you end up going with different mags, I found an excellent source for good 1911 mags a few years back. This seller on Ebay sells great mags and pretty good prices. Every mag I've ever bought from him has ran excellent. Most recent purchase as a set of 5 new mags for my 9mm Dan Wesson. He's worth looking at if you decide to order some additional magazines, and his are definitely not $50 each!

    I believe they are CheckMate mags.
