My Sistema (parkerized Argie Air Force)looks great. My problem is that it fails to pull the spent casing out of the barrel if there are any rounds left in the clip. (In other words, it only ejects properly with one loaded.) Now I replaced the mag with a better one, but no improvement. What can I do to fix it without throwing good money after bad? New extractor? Springs? How much $ am looking at? I just want to be able to hole punch paper from 25 yards.

Thanks.

Extractor! Buy a good one, like Wilson's Bulletproof or Ed Brown's Hardcore. There are a lot of cheap cast ones out there. BTW 1911 extractors need tuning out of the package most of the time. You need to check that the extractor has enough tension to hold a loaded round up against the breech face without falling out. If not, you will need to bend the extractor slightly. Usually an extractor's tension is set right if it needs a gentle push to reinsert into the slide.
