Extractor tension on my 1911? Great, another thing I have to worry about that I just learned about now.
Well, it's not that upsetting. I haven't had to worry about it because apparently it's fine in my 2 1911s, and I didn't monkey with them apart from cleaning or replace them.
I would think this would be an issue with ALL firearms... Glock or 1911 or etc.
Now, I'm not having any problems now, and I know symptoms of extractor problems manifest in jams you never had before, FTE types, the dreaded Double Feed. But is there anyway I can adjust a new extractor spring my ownself, and how would I learn how to do that?
Sale! Sale! Sale! - Huge sale on AR-15 stuff at Brownells. (I'm needing a stripped lower for a project, actually, and they've got Bushhamster ones for a mere $49.) .
