I have a P-13 that suddenly developed an ejection problem. About half the time it fails to pull the fired brass all the way out of the chamber. It pulls it back about 3/8" and leaves if there, jammed against the next round in the mag. It happens with all the mags I have. If I chamber a round, remove the mag, then fire, the fired brass always ejects properly. I have totally dis-assembled the weapon and thoroughly cleaned the extractor and extractor housing. Anybody have any ideas?

Thanks

Had the same problem with a P13. The culprit turned out to be an extractor that didn't have enough tension. Once that was adjusted properly, it has been flawless. 13 plus 1 rounds of .45 in a commander size package is very reassuring.

Could be an ammo issue, too. My Commander is pretty picky, but my C7.45 LDA isn't.

If chamber is clean and ammo isn't issue, put in a new properly tensioned extractor. Both my old P-14's did this, so replaced with EB Hardcore (or Wilson BulletProofs, can't remember), and this eliminated that problem.

Hey Guys,

Thanks for the answers. The chamber is clean and differant ammo doesn't help. Several of you mentioned extractor tension. That is where I thought the problem might be. How do properly tension the extractor, or do I just get a new one and hope it is OK?

They are rarely tensioned correctly from the factory. Do a search under "extractor" and "tension" and you should find a lot of posts relating to their adjustment.
