I took the project gun out and ran seven more magazines (I've got a whole stockpile of cheap .45ACP that I wouldn't trust for carry, but which is fine for shooting under controlled nobody-trying-to-kill-me conditions). Counting aside one known problem magazine that gave me two misfeeds, I ran the bunch with one stovepipe and one failure to chamber.
So it's not the point of being super-dependable. But at the risk of getting a corner clipped on my retro shootist card, that's why I have a Glock.
But we're getting there.
We seem to have resolved the issue with the slide not locking open on an empty magazine. And gotten rid of that hitch when drawing back on the slide. Ejection seems to be going pretty well with snap-caps.
This calls for more range time.

In other news, I'm leaning back towards getting this one parked. I switched grips again, back to issue checkered plastic, and it's sort of grown on me. Nothing looks quite as businesslike as a plain GI model.
Which of course means I'll need to buy another one to get blued.

Funny story - I'm broke again. Anybody want to venture a guess as to how this happened?

There's some days that being single is awesome beyond words.
