I believe the Mags are 8 round?
I believe 7 rounds in mag & 1 in chamber makes the number 8, but have never shot one..
i think the factory mags will be 7+1, but you can buy a wilson mag that will hold 8
Thanks a lot people. Have you tried the pistol? hows the performance?
My Ranger 1911 is causing dents on the ejected shells. Anybody have this experience and how to resolve this one?
Are they at the case mouths? If so, do you have a standard 1911, or is the ejection port lowered and flared (enlarged)?
If your gun is mil-spec, the ejection port is probably standard. Trying to eject a loaded round will oftentimes result in the round not clearing the port, since the port length is not much longer than the round itself. I can't help if you can't answer my question, so I will tell you to try this; with a round in the chamber, retract the slide far enough to be able to get to the brass with a permanent marker. Color the exposed brass. When you fire it, some of the marking will come off, but there will usually be enough to see some on the casing. Note where the dent is in relation to the colored portion, and that will tell you where the casing is striking when it is ejected. my guess is that it will be the top right of the casing, toward the front, which means it is hitting the inside of the slide, just in front of the ejection port. Take it to a gunsmith and have the ejection port lowered and flared, and your problems will go away. You may periodically see scratches on the case mouth after that, but not to worry, all auto pistols do that every once in a while.
Thank you my friend, I will have to try your suggestion. the damage is actually at the mouth of the shell but i will take your good suggestion.
i needs some gun porn this morning..
