Hi all. I've put together a G35 conversion pistol using a G31 frame and a new G35 slide from Lone Wolf. I replaced the original ejector with a new 9mm version and put all 9mm parts in the slide and bought a 9mm conversion barrel. (The ultimate goal is to have a pistol where I can easily switch from 9mm to 40 to 357Sig.) Before I ever shot the pistol, I cycled a snap cap through it and noticed that the extractor did not maintain control of the snap well. After the slide moves back a little ways, the snap cap drops down and sits on top of the empty mag. Upon shooting the gun, I experienced very weak and erratic ejection, though every round did eject completely. The same ammo functioned fine in my G26 and the empty brass ejected normally. Since shooting the pistol, I've swapped extractors between the G26 and the conversion pistol and noticed that the G26 extractor is also unable to maintain control of the snap cap. Careful examination of the G35 conversion pistol revealed that the distance from the breech face to the part of the extractor that grips the brass was about 1mm greater than on my G26. I checked this with another extractor and found the same thing. Basically the extractor just sits too far forward in the G35 slide which causes a gap between the extractor and breech face big enough for the brass to slip out of contact with the extractor. I'd very much appreciate any advice anyone can offer on how to fix this problem. Thanks. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
