    Hello,
    I'm new here and am hoping that I am following the appropriate protocol (if not please excuse/correct me).
    I purchased a new 1911-380 Compact from Cabela's 5 weeks ago. It sat in the safe for a week and on my first chance I took it out to try it. My first issue was a feed problem as it jammed several times. I removed one cartridge at a time until it started to feed with 6 rounds in the magazine. Next problem was when I pulled the trigger ... nothing. After several tries I inspected the primer to find not even a scratch, no mark whatsoever. I took the pistol back to Cabela's and they have sent it back to Browning. It has been 4 weeks and no news. I found remedies for the loading issue in your forums, has anyone had problems with a new gun not firing? The firing pin appeared to be fine. This is my first experience with a Browning, I fell in love with it when handling at Cabela's and could not wait to fire it, what a bummer!

    Sorry to hear about that problem...

    Browning Customer Service is pretty good...they will make it right.

    Just thought I would follow up. Still no news on my 1911-.380. I am attempting to be patient.
