Casings are drilling me in the forehead or between the eyes and I'm wondering how hard it is to fix this. Thanks

Any time that I have had that problem, a longer ejector has solved it.

BB, you can increase the tension on the extractor. That will usually cure it. George

BB, go to http://www.m1911.org/technic.htm and you'll find a very good article by Bill Wilson describing how it's done. George
