Hello,

My M1911MK1 arrived today, and after about firing through 3 mags, the gun stopped working properly. Every time it is fired, gas leaks out profusely and the mag runs out in after about 3 shots... Any idea what might be wrong?

Thanks,

James

Welcome to gas blow back.  Appears your release valve is sticking.  A couple drops of silicone lubricant worked into it will usually cure the problem.  Debris in the magazine may also be a problem and that requires disassembling the magazine to remove the valves -- you'll need a valve wrench for that.

Thanks, Chuck... I'll give it a shot. It seems to happen when the gun/mag get cold from the gas...
