    Yep.......1911 Colt Competition 9mm.

    Ejected straight up a couple of inches, flipped the casing around backwards, dropped back into the chamber and the slide slammed shut on it. Did it on a regular bases until I tweaked the extractor. Never had that issues afterwards.

    That would be my assessment too.

    Edit: I meant to underline the statement "until I tweaked the extractor" as I had the same problem long ago and it was the extractor causing it along with some limp wrist technique. I need to finish my posts without getting interrupted>

    This is a Kimber 1911 that I have had for 5 years, first time this has happened. Shooting pretty much once a week. What would cause the two indentations on the top of the shell?

    But... how?... the slide should already have closed. Did it get caught by slide during a follow up shot?

    Kind of what I have always understood to be the definition of a stovepipe...

    Old Bear said inches, not a shell casing rattling around in the ejection port... gravity don't work that fast.

    0:33 is what I've understood stove pipe to mean and how it occurs (shell fails to leave ejection port)

    Impossible
    1911s are like Glocks except they are for grown-ups.
