Raptor Ride Along

I would say it is a Raptor range report but it never fired a shot, in fact never chambered a round. It was not the pistols fault. I removed the original magazine and the Lula Loader got stuck, I thought it was broke, couldn't get it to release and off of the mag. (see separate thread on Loader) I had other mags loaded so I put it aside. I grabbed a preloaded stainless no name mag I've been using for years in all my 1911's for 30 years. Noticed it was hard to get started so I gave it a slap and it went in about a inch. It was stuck me and couple other guys, real muscle dudes could not budge it.
After I got home I removed the grips, thought it was hung on the bushing screw, took both bottom ones out, still no go. I finally pried the round in the magazine out with a screwdriver, then I was able to pull the magazine out.

BAD MAGAZINE: It wont fit into any of my full size or Pro Kimber's if it has even 1 round in it.

After I got home, took a shower and settled down, had supper, I got both stuck magazines out of two different pistols.

Turns out the Lula loader thing was not broke, I'm just stupid. See up coming thread.
