The first thing to look for is a sharp corner on the bottom of the extractor hook. A sharp corner there will bite into the brass and not allow the cartridge rim to cam up behind it. Remove the slide and then the barrel from the slide. Stick your finger down through the ejection port and feel the lower corner of the hook. There should be a small, but smooth radius on that corner. If it feels sharp, take a small stone or file and round it off a little.quote:Originally posted by whisky19
Thx for the reply. What can be done at home for a tight extractor or is this something that only a smith should tackle?

Ignorance is bliss i guess.
An old vet had told me years ago that 45's are suspose to have 7 rd mags. I've stuck with that over the years and have not had problems.
Of course i can be pig headed about such but it has kept me out of trouble including the p90.
