  1. I have been having extractor problems with my 9mm Trubor Open gun... The overwhelming advice I got was to install an Aftec extractor, so I did... I carefully fitted the firing pin stop per the Aftec instructions... After that, I installed the Aftec extractor with two of the small springs... It shot well for about 150 rounds, then started to jam again... Checking the tension on the Aftec, it turned out to be quite loose... I was surprised to find that because I thought the two springs would provide plenty of tension... I rounded the edges of the firing pin stop to make sure the Aftec could rotate enough to grab the case, but that does not seem to be happening... Is it ever necessary to bend an Aftec extractor to provide enough tension?
  2. OK guys need some input here to help me diagnose some issues with my STI Edge 40 Cal. I am running an Aftec extractor and a Recoil Master guide rod/spring in the gun. I got the gun used and have put approximately 700 rounds through it but I don't know the total round count on it. I am firing 180gr Berry's over 7.0 gr of HS-6 (all rounds chamber checked). The gun is completely cleaned after each match/practice session with Frog Lube. The problem I am having is, after my 3rd stage of a USPSA match today, the gun started to cycle "slowly". It would eject the spent case but seemed to struggle pushing the next round into battery. The issue occurred with 10-12 rounds fed from two different magazines. It would often stop 1/4 inch or so shy of closed and I would have to push the slide the remaining distance. Thinking that if might be an ammo issue, I switched to some GA Arms factory ammo for my next stage and I also put a few drops of oil on the barrel hood and top of the barrel. While this did improve the situation, it did not eliminate it. The issue occurred twice more in the next two stages. One of the RO's suggested that it may be an extractor tension issue? Would love to hear any thoughts from the group on what the issue may be.
