    I had a few failure to eject on the last round in the magazine with my new colt. From some googling, it seems like it could be an extractor tension issue. I'm debating what to do.

    Hi, I'm about to invest some hard-earned cash in a reasonably priced 1911 with a price range not exceeding mid-teens. I'm not afraid to buy a good used one, so that gives me the option to get a higher end brand in my price range. I find myself gravitating toward Les Baer, largely because of...
