I have had excellent results with the Aflec (sp) extractor in an SV40. This gun had recurring extraction problems with more than one standard extractor - it was getting heavy use at the time and they just would not stay reliable. A Smith friend recommend the (Aflec) and installed it for me. The SV is now 100% reliable and the new extractor has never been out of the gun. It's been about 3 years and probably 10k rounds or so since installation.

Whoever said you can’t buy happiness never owned a good 1911.
