I have 2 FCUs and 4 caliber kits. Just recently got a 9mm Full Size kit and it's driving me nuts. All of my kits run fantastic, never a hiccup. But this 9F will fail to extract a fired case about every 3rd or 4th mag. Now before anyone starts with the questions lets answer the common ones. Completely cleaned and lubed? Yes. Tried different mags? Yes (7) Inspected the extractor? Yes, even lightly polished the top and bottom to prevent binding. Limp wristing? NO. Doesn't happen with any of the other calibers / kits. Tried different ammo? Yes including 3 factory loads and 5 different hand loads. New extractor? Yes, swapped with my 9mm compact. No change. So what's left? Send it back to Sig? Yea, I already have the RA and the Fedex shipping label. But 2 hour drive to the Fedex hub. (the only place you can ship a firearm) Remove my fiber optic sites and replace with the factory sites. Pack up a complete gun, including one of my FCUs so now I'm down to one. Then 4 to 6 week wait for repair. There goes 1/3 of the shooting season. But I can't depend on it for competition the way it is, so I guess that's what I'm going to have to do. Sorry for the long post but I just needed to vent my tale of woe. Thanks for reading. I'll up date this when I can, and if you have any ideas please let me know. Thanks, Jim.
