Cleaning gives me a chance to inspect wear patterns and other stuff, even though I really don't know what's correct. My extractor seems to be extended beyond the rear of the slide when the slide is removed from the frame for cleaning. This is the first time I have noticed this. I shot about 70 rounds of 230 gr +P JHP a few days ago. I had a few Winchesters smash the casing while ejecting (maybe 2 out of 50 rounds). Pistol is a SA Loaded, stock with the exception of a GI guide rod and plug. About 700 rounds through the gun since early September. I have not done a detail strip. Sorry for the lousy pics (I need a real camera with a macro lens), but you can (barely) see how the extractor sticks out about 1/16th of an inch beyond the rear of the slide. Is this a problem and if so, how do I correct it?
