i took my new(replaced) PT1911 to range today, 142 rds. later the extractor broke again in the exact same spot the first one broke. i called dealer who i bought the pistol from,he told me he would get in touch with his rep at Davidsons. he told me they would either replace the pistol again or give me a 5%rebate to cover the cost of an aftermarket extractor,whichever i wanted. i may just buy a extractor from midway. oh i also talked to Christian at Taurus customer service, he said he would send me a extractor. the blue are on backorder but he is sending me a stainless extractor and when the blue comes in he will send me one of those to. pretty good customer service between dealer and Taurus.
