Dont get me wrong,i love this gun and i will never sell it,but i am having a problem with it. I dont know if its me or the gun but it seems every once in a while when firing the gun a shell will come straight back and smack me on the bridge of my nose instead of ejecting out and to the right and slightly to the rear. What causes this problem? Thanks for your help..

Have the same problem with my Pro Carry. Could be a light reload or amybe the extractor. In any case, I changed the extractor yesterday. Is the gun broken in yet? Even with the old extractor mine stopped doing it after a few hundred rounds.

i had the same problem with a colt commander that i used to have, about every 5 or six rounds it would hit me in the face! i was told that it was the extractor, so thats what i would check first. my brother has a pro carry, and it doesn't do it. so my guess would have to be the extractor

Yep, extractor. You may want to check and adjust tension.

Sneekyhunter,

I wouldn't mess with the gun until I shot a couple of hundreds rounds more through it. If it still throws shells at you I'd look at adjusting the extractor or buying a better quality extractor--a Wilson or Brown.

I would say there's a problem if this happens consistently. If it's sporadic, pay attention to what you're shooting and make sure it's not something you're doing.

I just bought my Kimber(300 rds fired)and had the same problem, but not with the +Ps I'ver fired. I did the extractor tuning featured in m1911.org, but no change in the performance of the standards rounds. Maybe I just need to break it in, or just use +Ps?
