1911 style guns with internal extractors....

I have fit extractors for various 1911 and STI 2011 guns.....and have never felt the need for a gauge.....but I do like to make modifications to the extractor as shown in the attached graphic..... I do not like the tip of the extractor hook to touch inside the extractor groove to the main body of the case.....slight touching may be OK....proper extractor tension is also a necessary adjustment.....
