So I purchased my 1911 a month or so back and I haven't had time to go out and shoot it or even chamber a round. yesterday I broke it down and cleaned it, and afterwards I finally decided to chamber a round, but it didn't work out so well, the extractor was keeping it from fully chambering. so I dropped the mag and opened the slide to let the round out. I pretty much though that I was going to either have to take it to a smith or send it in to get it in working order. But I was thinking about it today while I was at work, and came to conclusion that because I was being gentle and not letting the force of the slide going back to the normal position on its own was probably stopping the round from being chambered. so when I got home I tried just that, and what do you know the round chambered perfectly fine. This is where the problem is, I dropped the mag and attempted to unchamber the round, but the slide will not move more than a quarter inch no matter how hard I try. I have it in its case with the safety on at the moment. I highly doubt that going out and trying to fire it to get it out in this condition is very safe or a good idea in anyway shape or form. I tried searching for any similar post's before posting this and I found one but it was a different firearm, so im just wondering if anyone has any advice or any idea how to safely get the live round out of the chamber without damaging the gun. any and all help is much appreciated.
