a fool and his money are soon parted

Found a local used Chiappa 1911 Tactical. Is a little wonky on ammo choices, I am open to all suggestions. Only $150 in, so not a major investment.

I have tried CCI tactical copper plated, WinchesterX, MiniMag hollow points, and a couple other my son tried.

Results the same, first round fires, second fail to feed, hand clear it, second round fires, hand clear it, then balance of magazine shoots/feeds OK. I know I have to use HV ammo and am think LRN is the best choice. It also could use a good cleaning and lube. Do these guns prefer to run on the "dry side" or "wet side"??
