Yes, pretty normal. I also have an Auto-Ordnance, and have had some feed problems. Do not get the impression other 1911s are necessarily better. The design itself presents a problem because the feed ramp is actually composed of 2 parts, with a "hang-up" line in between. The ramp begins in the frame, the barrel when seated in slide forward position, forms the rest of the ramp, leading into the chamber within the barrel.Ironworker said:I have not been able to get HP bullets to feed reliably in my Auto-Ordnance 1911, is this normal for this type of handgun?
