I had a ton of trouble with an L9 on extraction, despite it already having a new extractor installed by the previous owner. It wouldn't extract anything below 147 gr ammo, and was having at least one failure to extract per magazine even with the 147 gr. Jeff from SAI sent me a new extractor anyway after I spoke to him, just to be on the safe side. I did the 1911 plunger spring trick which I read on this forum along with installing the new extractor, and didn't have problems after that. I think reinforcing the Steyr's extractor spring with the 1911 plunger spring within it was the main thing that helped, since the extractor Jeff sent was the same as the one already installed (though I still replaced it with the one Jeff sent just to be on the safe side).
