UPDATE: So I couldn't get it totally correct on the extractor, or at least not that I had confidence in. So a quick visit to the 'smith fixed the problem. He noticed right away the feed ramp wasn't very well polished and not mated up with the barrel as well as it should have been. Remember this is a limited edition Level I which was supposedly hand fitted etc. Not sure if was from the Custom Shop or not. Anyway, he polished the ramp mated it up, and tweaked the extractor. Test fired many times now an no problems. He only charged me $40 so I feel good about it. For extra insurance I'm going to order some new mag springs and call it a day.
