So, while filling up my new range bag today I deiced to do some investigating and check to see how close the round is coming to the slide lever. I deiced to stick three rounds into the magazine and first check with the rounds pushed all the way back in the magazine. Then check after chambering a round. I did this because I noticed that after chambering a round the next round was pulled sightly forward in the magazine.
First I checked with my carry rounds, Hornady Critical Defense 115gr. With the round all the way back it has no chance of hitting the lever. After one being chambered it's decently close but I don't think there's a possibility of it hitting the lever. I wasn't too worried in the first place considering the shape of the round.
Next I checked with the ammunition I used to break it in that this has been happening with, Remmington UMC Target 115gr. All the way back it's already pretty close. After chambering the first round it's really close. I can see any small variance causing it to trip the lever. I honestly think this has been the problem all along.
Lastly I checked with some ammunition that I was planning on trying to see if I could rule out ammunition as a problem, Federal Champion 115gr. It was even worse. It was only slightly further from the lever on the first round. After chambering the first round the second round was clearly hitting the lever.
After doing some more research it seems that this gun was designed around 124gr rounds. So, I'm going to pick up some 124gr rounds to test with as well. I have a small metal file I've used for some automotive stuff in the past. I'm going to give that a try this weekend. Thanks for all the help everyone.
