On some 1911's I've seen nose up feed jams in which the fresh round jams with the nose pointing into the top of the chamber or bbl hood. I typically attribute this to the magazine. What are other culprits of the nose up jam that might be examined on the 1911?

Also, improper recoil spring weight for the load being used or improper OAL length of cartridge (usually too short, but I've seen some that are too long occasionally do the same).

Recoil spring tension can be a culprit.

Since my Para is an alloy frame gun, I tried using recoil buffers at last range session. The Para hasn't misfed for the last 2,000 rounds without recoil buffers, but I did get one misfeed out of 50 rounds with the buffer in place.

The nature of the mis-feed was a stoppage with a stove-pipe.
