You certainly have way more experience than I in building 1911s. And yet there are some highly skilled and experienced 1911 'smiths who pay strict attention to setting the amount of extractor deflection.

Who knows? The eternal mystery of the 1911. I wonder if Brownells sells JMB Magic Fairy Dust that I can sprinkle on my pistols?

I went back to the range again today. I put over 200 rounds through the Ruger SR1911 lwt cmdr. 50 Geco 115gr ball, about 150 Georgia Arms 115gr reloads, and about 20 Federal FST hollowpoints. In all this I had one FTF. That with a GA reload. A bump to the slide seated it. I didnt think to examine the case. But I suspect it was the cause.

Now that its proving to be reliable. I adjusted the rear sight for windage. Now it's right on with a 6 O'clock hold. I'm a happy camper 🙂
