I received the new extractor fix kit couple of days ago. It included the new extractor, (all round) pin, spring and an ejector. The pin is the same as my old one, but the spring is one coil longer. The extractor is different in shape as well. When installed the extractor sits higher then the slide, not flush fit like the old one. (I posted a photo in another thread). Now about the ejector; the end that contacts the case has an angle to it, where the old one is flat/straight. I replaced the extractor parts (but left the old ejector in) and had a chance to shoot a box (50) of Remington (124gr FMJ). Decided to try the tapping technique; with one magazine I tapped the ammo to the back had no malfunctions, than I loaded and tapped a new magazine but this time I tapped the ammo to the front of a magazine, again no malfunctions. The rest of the box I loaded as usual (no tapping). Everything worked fine and ejection was consistent. I have to admit with my old extractor I only had one FTE in ~400 rounds of factory ammo. But had constant malfunctions with reloads (in 600 rounds). Since I ran out of reloading supplies I can’t test that load, but will get more supplies some time in November.
