Thanks guys, I appreciate all your suggestions/input! I couldn't have figured it out without your help!

The two FTF's were after 300 rounds and the gun was dirty and running drier than I like for a 1911 with a match barrel. (Ran one mag through the gun as fast as I could pull the trigger and it didn't miss a beat. (Of course I wouldn't have won any prizes for bullseye shooting either!)

After I got home, cleaned the gun, pulled the extractor and did some very minor sanding, cleaning and polishing on it as well after noticing a few minor burrs (Thanks, 21Carrier).

Here's a few good links for 1911 extractor tuning:
