    It was really his rear sight. I goofed up. I am going to install his rear sight and give his slide a deep clean and will reply to this thread possibly Sunday or Monday. I hope its just junk behind his extractor. He already put 150 rds. through it.

    So, after a couple of weeks not being able to get together, we were able to do a detailed strip of Matt's slide. Before we got going we did the extractor test to see if the extractor needed tuning. It seemed not to. The extractor held onto the round firmly and flicked out just fine.

    I detail stripped the slide and found lots of lube in the firing pin channel and advised against that. The extractor came out easily with mild coaxing. There was some gunk in the extractor channel and we cleaned that out and dried the whole channel out. Upon reassembly we could extract the rounds a little better but still not consistent. We still had to rack the heck out of it.

    So I measured his ammo that was in the gun. They were right at 1.260 Thinking back to my reloads that seemed a little long. I am reloading Xtreme 230's at 1.230 so I gave Matt some rounds to try. He texted me back that they we reliably extracting without racking like the devil. Mystery solved. Matt's gun has to have shorter ammo.

    Yesterday I got a text saying he bought some Remingtons and they extracted reliably. Well, there's his practice ammo. I also told him to buy Hornady XTP's for SD and HD ammo as they are also loaded right at 1.230.

    All's well that ends well. Thanks for the tips and suggestions folks.

    yep-- OAL depends a great deal on the projectile type and the pressure it is loaded to.
    as long as its within SAAMI specs for OAL it should function--but then again we all (well most) know how that "SHOULD" thing works.
    glad he got it running.

    Run it wet and shoot it like you stole it. All the metals need to marry together. As others have said, the violence that happens when a firearm is being shot, can not be duplicated by a human.
    Don't baby it.

    I am having the very same issue with my new PT1911 SS I thought I'd shoot up some WWB and went to clear the gun and the round locked up tighter than Dicks hat band same as OP but I've got close to 800 rounds of reloads through it then at home it happened with a Tipton snap cap go figure but if your and try to eject a live round (WWB) all is not well. It ejects my reloads with no issue at all they are 200grain SWC OAL 1.225--1.230

    The OP hasn't been back in six weeks...maybe he fixed it?
    “…democratic socialism, the great utopia of the last few generations, is not only unachievable but that to strive for it produces something utterly different – the very destruction of freedom itself. As has been aptly said: ‘What has always made the state a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven.'” F.A. Hayek
