I had a similar but different problem.

I’m not saying ‘try this at home,’ but mine is a 1939, honest to goodness police issue, who knows what type of service it has seen! SD, SS, local country policeman.

With a full clip, when I pulled the slide to chamber a round, the bullet jammed half out of the slide! Half the bullet sticking out of the gun. I used a screwdriver to hold the slide back, and extracted the bullet.

A month later, I thought about it - and put only 5 rounds in the magazine.
Chambered and fired no problem. The spring was forcing the bullet up too hard - and the magazine is original.
Since then, I have it as a ‘display only.’
Don’t try this at home.
