More details please. Define "ton of extraction problems."

Extractor out of tune.
Ammo out of spec.
Chamber dimension issues.
Dirty chamber.
Broken extractor.
Worn out recoil spring.
Too strong recoil spring.
Firing pin stop not fit correctly (extractor "clocking").
Shock buff installed?

if I pop a loaded mag in and pull back on the charging handle twice the round will get lodged in between the barrel and firing pin area....I thought it might be out of spec.......Is it supposed to be seated tightly in the half circle area? Mine has a space in between the extractor pin cutout and the actual pin :confused:

How many rounds (approx.) on the gun before this began happening? Have you cleaned and lubed the gun recently?

Try the '1911 'How-To's' and FAQ' section of this forum and you will see "How to check and adjust your extractor".

The point Bob is making - and I agree - is that we don't know WHAT the problem is, or what type of handgun he has. The 1911 certainly has no "charging handle", and none of my 1911's has an "extractor pin" either.

We need clearer descriptions of the problem - and correct parts terminology may help. ;)
