Today while at the range. (shooting my g27 & a rented an STI 1911 .45 'LOVED IT) I had a GREAT day today with tight groups at 10 & 25 yards. BUT, I literally watched as a Walther PPS .40 fall apart. The extractor just went flying out of the gun. As a friend of the guy shooting I quickly grabbed the parts and we grabbed our gear and went out to look at things. He had no idea about what happened (or how to fully dismantle the gun). Somehow the "extractor retention spring" got bent which then didn't put enough pressure to keep the extractor in the slide which caused the extractor to pop out while cycling. (this was after approx. 75-100 rnds) ALSO, as I took the gun apart I noticed considerable chipping on the locking block where the breech locks (just like on a Glock). I wish I had thought quick enough to take pics. But, have any of you heard of either of these things on a Walther before? This is CRAP! Go ahead and get your "Friends don't let Friends shoot Walther" out of the way! haha Thanks!
