fixed my combat commander

After nearly 40 years of faithful service, my combat commander suddenly started jamming every 5-6 rounds. Replaced the ejector to no avail. Replaced the extractor even though it still looked fine. Problem solved.
We'll see what happens over the next 40. -ken

Or, just take it out of the gun and put a little more bend in it.

I've had extractors that would accept a little bend and last, while others are done, and won't stay "adjusted". After forty years, it might go either way.
