    I was out shooting today found the slide starting to stick a little?
    I have a little over 1000 rounds threw the mil spec 1911 and never had any problem's installed a new pin stop last week from EGR and tested last week with a 100 rounds no problem.
    I just added a new set of slim grips and thought I would like to see how the thinner grips feel must of went threw 50 rounds no problem then it seem to start:I load my clip 5 rounds only and after the last shot I remove the mag: and walk the slide down just the last 1/16" I felt the slide stick not all the time but I new it did not feel right.
    I shot another 50 rounds no problems but when I got home I did decide to field strip and clean and did notice the slide need a little more then just slide of the frame.
    I strip the slide and frame and reassembled the slide to the frame I did notice as soon as the slide did meet the EJECTOR on the frame seem it started to stick did notice the ejector had a bare spot were the blue wore off otherwise it look O.K. not bent I had some J@B bore paste and added some to the ejector and after working the slide by hand my problems were gone.
    I cleaned a reassembled rack the slide to the forward position and no problems anyone have any idea why it started to stick?
    I forgot to mention I clean my gun after every time out at the range

    Although you clean your pistol every range orting, when was the last time you detail stripped it? Detail strip your pistol and clean out any crud that is in the disconnector tunnel. I really think it's time for a thorough cleaning and lubing...watch the improvement afterwards!

    1911 Slide

    When you take it down all the way check the slide for any burrs or nicks use a head magnifier this will a whole bunch. I had the same problem in VietNam so I did a complete strip down and I found 1 little nick I used a very fine file and smoothed it out, never had a single proble since. Gov, let me keep that weapon as it was a captured weapon.

    Good Luck,
    Oldkahuna :)
