Freedom Munitions

Took my SIS ultra out the other day with some Freedom Munitions remanufactured .45 ammo. Malfunction city: every 2 or 3 rds the brass would eject but not pick up a fresh round from the mag. I tried a couple of different mags, and that did not remedy the problem.

Has anyone had this problem?

Did you try some other ammo to see if the problem persisted?

I was having feed/battery/ejection problems with my CCCII, but after changing the springs the problems went away. My CCCII had about 1,600 rounds through it. Just something to consider.

Oh Wow!! Has anyone else had problems with Freedom Munitions 45 ammo? I was thinking about ordering some of it. Was that the RN 230 grain that was giving you trouble? Do you have a polished feed ramp? Were all your clips made by the same company?

I have shot well over 10,000 rounds of Freedom Munitions reloads and have another 3,000 sitting in my ammo locker. I've done this over the past couple of years using 4 Kimbers and never had a problem like that. 80% of my 30 magazines (yes I recently bought more) are KimPro Tac-Mags.

No issue from FM ammo. Thousands of rounds … no better or worse than anything else.

Same here, .380, 9mm, .40, .45 and .223. Freedom is all I shoot for target. Even in my Solo.

Cool Hmmmm!!

Sounds to me like you have eliminated the magazine from the equation. That leaves two possible issues. Either your pistol needs a serious cleaning or you have a weak recoil spring. If your pistol is clean, well, you pretty much have your answer. Replace the recoil spring or give the miracle workers at Kimber Customer Service a call. These guys have achieved near legendary status for their skill at getting problem pistols to perform up to customer expectations!!

You can follow my advice and hope that I am right about the spring or put your trust in the Kimber Wizards. BTW, the Wizards work cheap!!!
