    I have a Rock Island officer size and have been fighting FTF problems ever since I bought it. The recoil spring and extractor have both been changed out with no affect in reliability. When I get a FTF the nose of the bullet is pointing up towards the top of the barrel as if the bullet is trying to enter the barrel at to steep an angle. Currently using Wilson Combat magazines. Anyone have an ideas that may help narrow the problem area down before I go sinking money into switching out parts that may or may not help. Thanks for your help.

    Give Arnel a call. He's the RIA guru. Sounds like something he'll pick up the tab for shipping both ways, but that'll be his call.

    Just in case you don't know how to reach him, it's 775-537-1444. Ask for Arnel and tell him what's going on. He'll take good care of you.
