    Have you examined the locking lugs on your barrel for signs of clashing?

    I have to the best of my ability, can't see anything obvious. The gunsmith that looked at this pistol did say "it might need a new barrel", that was it. He didn't have a definite answer to the problem. Sadly a new barrel would cost as much as the gun is worth new.

    Here's a link showing what damage to the radial locking lugs of the slide and the barrel can look like: https://www.google.com/search?q=1911...h=727&biw=1532

    One thing that may cause the problem is a barrel link that's too long. Here's one way to check for that:

    • Unload the gun then clean and assemble it without the magazine, recoil spring, recoil spring guide rod and recoil spring plug.
    • Cock the hammer and with the slide in battery...
    • Hold the gun upside down and...
    • Slowly pull the slide back being mindful of any hesitation of the gun to come smoothly out of battery.
    • With the gun still inverted, slowly move the slide forward into battery also being mindful of any of hesitation

    Q1: Was the gun smooth (with the exception of any slight interference from the disconnector)?

    Q2: How do the radial locking lugs look?

    Q3: Any evidence of slide stop pin contact with the barrels lower lugs like shown in the fourth image in the link?

    He didn't say why? If he couldn't explain why, I would dismiss his "advice" as useless.

    No, there was no explanation given just the mentioning of a new barrel. He said that he had replicated the fault i.e fired it and had the same issue, but there was no mention of a fix or what the problem was. The gun was returned to my friend along with a 150 dollar bill.
