I did, at least those that I could find that fit. The RIA magazine fell APART after a month or so...the bottom cracked and blew out. I tried two types of Kimbers as well as a Chip McCormick Power Mag, all to no avail. It is interesting in that the jam up always seemed to occur with the first cartridge in the magazine.
I shot Winchester White, CCI Blazer and Speer Lawman. All FMJ with similar results.
Ironically, it seemed to be a quite accurate gun, certainly more so than my Glock 19 and SA XD 45.
I'm going to keep tinkering with it and may get it to the point that it works fine.
