IAN27 Posted January 2, 2007 Share Posted January 2, 2007 A friend bought a new STI Executive .40 and he has put about 600 rounds through it. The other night we were reloading some of the cases fired in this pistol and as usual I started to check a few with a case guage. Out of 20 rounds, 8 would not fully go into the guage. I checked them an discovered a small burr on the side of the case on the forward edge of the extractor groove. I then checked all the brass that had been fired in the pistol and found that all the cases have a burr on this edge. Some are worse than others. I realise that this is being caused by the extractor, but wonder if anyone else is having the same problem, to the extent were some cases will not guage. The force of the action will probably cycle these rounds, but was just wondering. I have fired many pistols in my time and have never seen the brass getting burred like this.
