I noticed that the extractor on my SA was turned slightly. It seems to be working fine, but does it and/or the firing pin stop need to be replaced? I haven't had any problems with it but since it is my daily carry I want to prevent any problems.

Extractor will "clock"

If this bothers you there are oversized firing pin retainers that can be fitted your gun to keep it straight.

So, from a reliability stand point it is not a problem?

If you arent' having a problem currently you should be good to go. In your spare time you could buy and oversized retainer and fit it, just for the learning experience....but it sounds like you are doing fine as is.

Thanks for the info guys. I may do that since it seems I have OCD with my weapons.

I don't baby them by any means, but I want them all tip top.

I recall one reason the oversized retainers were made is for the custom makers that would checker or cut fine lines on the back of the slid efor glare reduction and then the clocked extractor would really stand out.
