At the range, I had my first malfunction with my Colt Commander. It's past the break in period, with hundreds of rounds through it and this is the first hiccup.
Failure to Feed.
The pistol was clean and lubed before the session. Maybe the third or fouth magazine in the session, on the last round in the magazine, the round failed to feed. It was 'nose high' like the case didn't get high enough up to be pushed into battery by the slide. It wasn't hung on the extractor or anything. It was like the spring and the follower weren't vigourous enough in doing their job.
The ammo was FMJ, Sellier and Bellot.
The magazine was one of my two factory mags from Colt. The chrome one. Stamped on the floor plate so it is easy to notice. I thought Colt used McCormack mags.
So my gut says to chalk this all up to a magazine issue and not the gun's fault. Now... to repeat the failure, or try to get it to happen.
