    You should check extractor tension with a loaded round not an empty case.
    There's a big difference in weight.

    I've never seen a recoil spring assembly like that.

    that's a RecoilMaster, but other companies use a similar setup for their 4" and smaller guns.

    The RM reduces the feel of recoil and as a result, the slide seems to cycle a little slower.
