EXTRACTOR lubrification ?

Hi my dear American Friends!
Just a question!
May I lube the extractor or does it works dry?
For lubrification I want to say just a little bit where it's sitted.
Thank you!
Paolo

ok, no lube...
I've read many threads about extractor's issue on G19gen4...
Since I clean the extractor (first time in my G19gen4 life) I've got two FTF, and so I supposed that I clean too much the extractor and where it's sitted, also the factory grease I thought.
Thank you.

NOT an extractor issue. More than likely it's either a weak ammo or limp-wristing error on your part. Dry the extractor and internal slide channels. Use something like Q-Tips in order to get the job done right. Then lube your Glock according to the Owner's Manual. Be sure to get the slide rails and tracks.

If your recoil spring is weak, then change the RSA (recoil spring assembly). Do a standard operation check, per the Owner's Manual, and make sure your striker (FP) safety and striker move freely, too.

More than likely it's either weak ammo or YOU! (So, tighten up your gun hand wrist, and pull down more on the frame with your support hand and arm.

Lubrication on the extractor will make it more likely to fail, not less likely. Oil on the extractor claw can cause it to slip off the cartridge rim.

Also, most of what you read about extractor issues is nonsense, posted by people who barley know enough about their Glock to find the extractor.

Sorry, but I have to disagree. But I am sure you know that those issues we hear about some of the newer Glocks are real, and that most of those issues are not caused by the shooter and/or the ammo. You just won't admit it.

Matter a fact, you don't want any oil in the inside of the slide.
Meaning the extractor bar or firing pin channel.
Only oil should be on the barrel and rails.

When I first polished the metal parts inside my Glock pistols, I had a bit of polishing compound on a piece of cardboard. I rubbed the extractor on this spot top and bottom. It polished the extractor a little bit and I think it keeps things moving with NO lubrication. Good luck!

I still put a drop of CLP on the back pivot end, articulate it to disperse the lube, and then wipe off the excess, including any crud in and around the extractor or claw.

But then again, I grease the rails too... so there's that.

If it rotates - Oil it. If it slides - Grease it. (except for the Glock firing-pin)

By FTF you mean failure to feed? I doubt that has anything to do with your extractor, although it is possible. See: http://www.warriortalk.com/showthrea...lunger-channel

No lubrication needed in that area--it can cause accumulation of fouling.

You shouldn't have any excess oil around the extractor, the oil will only accumulate fouling more quickly which will inhibit the free movement of the extractor and can cause failures to feed and failures to eject.

The FTF's could be an ammo issue or a magazine issue. If I'm not mistaken, being in Italy your G19 would be chambered in 9x21. Are there any numbers marked on the followers of your magazines? Are they 10-round magazines or 15-round magazines?

I'd try holding the gun more firmly in case it's caused by limp-wristing, if that doesn't fix the problem try some different brands of ammo if you can.

Every time I use Fiocchi 124 gr. I have got some problems.
I'm pretty sure that every 35/40 rounds, one of them it's weak.
