1911 A1 colt government not firing properly

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a 1911 A1 colt government c02 pistol. its started to misfire and I've noticed when I remove the mag, the pellet is still in its chamber but has an impression on it from hitting the barrel. It seems that the chamber of the mag is not being aligned correctly with the barrel. It will fire if the trigger is pulled with the hammer forward but if the hammer is manually cocked it misfires?

Does anyone know why its doing this and how to fix it.

Would really appreciate any help or advise.

Almost certainly a worn cylinder pawl and /or pawl spring. I could fix it but I am not near you. Try your local dealer for his repair service.
