Hey guys, I just got back from the range. Got to take my new Springfield Loaded out and put some rounds downrange, and I noticed that the spent brass is deflecting off the back of the ejection port. Is this normal for 1911s, or is there some extractor tuning that needs to be done?



By the way, this gun is a lot of fun to shoot...It's pretty accurate, and it chews through my XM1911 ammo like butta. There was one jam, but my friend was shooting it at the time and I didn't get a close look at what happened. It looked like the last round in the magazine (Wilson 47 or 47D) popped out and got stuck halfway out of th ejection port as the slide slammed forward. Other than that, there weren't any problems. Lookin forward to going back out and shooting some more.

your extractor needs to be tuned. A decent 1911 smith can fix that.

Thanks Aim4. About how much does that cost on average? I don't want to get hosed...

Is this the same with an external extractor model?

C.L.

Let me know if you have any troubles with the mags.

If you want a spare extractor or slide stop handy just shoot me an email.

To fix that last round hang up you have to get a wilson slide stop. I put one in mine and 0 problems since. My last 1911 had that problem really bad. Tuning the extractor is a good suggestion too.

It was a LOADED round, not a spent shell casing. But since I wasn't shooting it at the time, I'm not sure if it was something that my friend did or what. I just looked up and saw the round sticking out of the ejection port about halfway. He might have been racking the slide or something...
