    :banghead::banghead: Well I bought a Springfield Armoury Micro 45 from a friend. He told me it wasn't feeding hydrashocks so he wouldn't have it as his ccw gun. Well I gave him some cash and another gun and it went all down hill from there.

    He bought the gun new and I don't believe it has ever run right. First time out it jammed so I changed ammo and it jammed less. Second time out I took out 230 win ball and the gun wouldn't eject a case and left it jammed on top of the loaded mag. Took it in and had the extractor changed as the extractor was missing the rim of the case.

    3rd time out the gun would fire then extract but the next round would push up the slide stop. Switched mags from the Springfield to a Meggar and the gun run but wouldn't stay open on the last round:cuss::cuss:
    Geez this is getting old.

    Any ideas??

    Yup, get rid of it. You'll be happier in the end.

    The last five Springfields I bought, all new guns, required work, and not all of them ever did.

    Springfield has a lifetime warranty. Call them.

    That gun ain't right.

    There's an old saying, "Don't bring a knife to a gunfight." It could say, "Don't bring a POS jam-a-matic to a gun fight."

    That gun is likely to get you killed if you ever need it to defend your life.

    That one sounds like it is FUBAR. Dump it and get something that does what it is supposed to do . . . every single time.

    Send it to Springfield. They will make it right.

    I agree with the others. Get professional help. Do not try to fix it at home.

    Sound advice. Even if you get it to run right, you'll never trust it.

    A few hiccups with a new gun is one thing; My Witness Compact 10mm had some issues with my handloads when it was new and before a fluff'n'buff. I got it to run and after about 400 rounds trouble free, I trusted it enough to be my CCW (it now logs the highest MRBS of all my 10mm's with all ammo) . but you've tried this thing with different ammo, new parts, aftermarket magazines and it still won't run. It's tainted.

    Modern interpretations of the 1911 are fussy enough without adding a radical change from the original design into the mix.
