2011 One Hand FTF

Recommended Posts

I have had many outings now where both strong and weak hand shooting produce FTFs in my 2011. At first I thought it was soley a limp wristing issue, but even at the range with all sorts of grip pressure and stance mods I can't seem to keep the FTFs down.

Is there any thing I can do to help the gun feed smoother? I don't seem to have this problem with my other 2011, 1911, or G35.

Recoil spring is a 12 lb sprinco, Aftec Extractor, tuned mags, and factory ammo.

Is your thumb dragging on the slide while shooting one handed possibly slowing down the cycle.

I don't believe so. But I will check again at the range. I have an identical pistol without this issue that I've ran side by side.

I am hesitant to say, but I think it was a combo of the bullet profile and my arm swinging around wildly during recoil. Limp arming?

With my reloads and same bullet profile (loaded much longer), I have not had any issues. Berry's flat point round nose are what I am using, I get them for the same price per thousand as cast lead.

Even though I had zero issues with 4k factory rounds, they did not feed entirely smoothly. My reloads zip right into the chamber.
