Of course, one unit is not what I would call statistically significant...I could have got lucky...so I still "allow for the possibility" that I will have to do some sort of adjustment on the next external extractor I replace.

On the other hand...I fully expect to HAVE TO tweak any internal extractor I have to replace. In fact, any 1911 I shoot in competition, I already have an extractor and bushing ready to go in a spare parts bag for that gun in case I have to replace it during a match.

Now, if someone is itching to have an argument...bring up the full length guide rod in a 1911 argument.
What internal extractor, bushing are you talking about? Do you mean the firing pin stop?
