Does you kit do this? I have an Advantage Arms kit that I have been very happy with especially with the cost of center fire ammunition getting insane. My kit occasionally has malfunctions, which at first bothered me, but I came to realize that this was just about the only time I get to unexpectedly practice my clearance drills or procedures. I get a misfire or failure to feed (fat ammo) perhaps 2%-3% of the time, which I pretty much write off as part and parcel of shooting inexpensive rimfire ammunition. The other malfunction I have a little more often is a failure to extract which results in a double feed. I get it at least once every 30-40 rounds even when the kit is very clean. When this happens the spent round in the chamber will not reliably extract unless I press my finger down on the outside of the extractor while manually cycling the slide. In other words, it acts as though the extractor is not on the rim good enough or the extractor spring is too weak. I noticed that when the slide is locked back to the rear, the extractor arm is flush with the slide, but when the slide is forward, even without a round in the chamber, the extractor arm protrudes out from the slide a bit. It is pushed out by the angled slot in the barrel. I am thinking that perhaps this isnt normal and may be part of my failure to extract problem. MY QUESTION Would a few of you fellow AA kit owners take a look at yours and see if you notice the same thing extractor not flush with slide when the slide closed on an empty chamber. If yours is flush then I may need to send my kit back to AA to have a look at. Thanks in Advance TEX Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
