Just took possion of a 1911A1 Springfield 9 x 23 today. Had two jams out of first 50 rounds. I am getting a fine metal shaving off the ejected cartridge that is keeping the next round from seating. Had to tap the slide pretty good to free it up. Anybody have a solution?

Check the extractor tension, if its too stiff it could be shaving the sides of the rim. Do a reliability job and polish the breech,ramp and throat and see what happens. Also check other mags,Wilson if you have or can borrow one. My SA runs with whatever I can get in the chamber. Never had a problem with it.
