It requires more maintenance and more knowledge of how the gun works to keep it running at 100% which is what is necessary for a carry gun.


Not this same old tired argument again...

You should understand how it works. How to tweak and replace an extractor. How to replace and maintain a mainspring.
Not unless something is out of spec or the magazine of choice is losing control of the ammunition, causing the gun to push feed and force the extractor claw over the rim...which does seem to be the case these days.

Cleaning and replacing a recoil or mainspring periodically makes the gun high-maintenance? Really? They don't "need" to be replaced as often as most have been led to believe...and I've got extractors that have seen over 75,000 rounds without any attention at all beyond removal for cleaning from time to time.
If your front porch collapses and kills more than three dogs...You just might be a redneck
