Looks excellent, I look forward to seeing it once finished. Really great job.
Kinda?Did you ever figure out what spring you need for the 9x23 slide?
Have you ever heard of using a stiffer hammer spring for 9x23? A Springfield custom shop CCO in 9x23 seemed to have a really stiff hammer. That Winchester white box is hot!Kinda?
I got a 16 lb for 9mm and a 20 lb for 9x23.
16 seems to be working (jams aside since that's a barrel ramp issue I think) for 9mm but I'm not sure on the 9x23. I got the 20 because that's what my hazy memory tells me I did last time. I'm going to be waiting a few weeks for a 9x23 chamber reamer I ordered to come in to find out about that.
Agreed.Never used the Aeftec extractor but it gets a lot of good reviews. That said, your issue does certainly appear to be your extractor. Maybe the hook needs to be looked at?
I've used "Steve in Allentown's" guide to check and properly file the hooks on my extractors. Maybe check it out and compare the hook on your Aeftec to the pics in his guide? The guide is in the stickies and has been a terrific reference for me.
YES, without the extractor the rounds almost seem like they are getting sucked into the chamber, very smoothly in contrast to the "ka-thunky" way they chamber with the extractor installed. I have also just confirmed that this is the case with both the 9x19 and 9x23 barrel.Agreed.
Does it fee w/out the extractor in place?
