    Can the 9mm pt1911 extractor be upgraded to diffrent brand.

    The one in my gun is wack , exessive wobble in gun, double feeds fails to extract etc I just now adjusted it and havent shot it maybe good now buuuut.... Just thinking ahead Id rather buy one outa pocket than deal with Taurus CS. The internet has a boat load of them but I dont know if a say wilson combat or any other brand will fit and function. I know that either way a new one will have to be hand fitted. Thought maybe someones done this. By comparison I checked the one in my pt1911 45 and its way tighter than the 9mili.

    Best I can do is tell you I have a WC in my PT1911 .45acp and it works fine with the series 80 extras.

    If there is excessive play; it usually indicates the firing pin stop is too small to hold the extractor static. That will cause havoc in feeding and extraction.

    When you say , you just adjusted it, what exactly did you do to it when you adjusted it? How did you adjust it , in other words?

    I'm sorry, I directed that question to Sterling. What is the purpose of the picture?

    Switchbow:

    If I had been directing my reply at/to you, I would have so indicated as I did here. The picture indicates an extractor that is not tight. It is clocking because the fps is allowing it to do so. This is the only cause I know of to explain sterlings references to wobble and not tight.

    If he's had the extractor out and has done some filing to the fitment groove on the extractor itself, that may also cause a loose fit.

    Switchbow:

    Why would anyone think loosening the interface of the extractor to the firing pin stop would be well founded in any sort of mechanical logic on a pre-assembled working or non-working factory pistol? It would be a completely illogical modification. If you were doing a scratch build, you remove any excess material from the less expensive part which, in this example, would be the firing pin stop.
