    I have about 100 rounds through it and noticed a week ago that all my brass I was picking up was going forward of where I was shooting instead of the usual to the right, or right and back a little. It's still running fine and I have no ftf or any other issues. I did have a couple bounce off my head. I've done some research and watched the videos on testing the extractor to see if it was weak. It holds the rounds with no issue and does not appear weak. Also noticed the brass getting a little beat up. A dent on the side and a triangular rub mark. I think you can see all in the pics.

    So, what do you all think? Keep shooting and breaking it in? Try to tweak the extractor? cart1.jpg cart2.jpg

    Then extractor tuning is where to look. Swampratt posted good links

    Tweaked the extractor. I was surprised to find it that tough to bend, even a little. Now it's throwing out at 3:00 about 4 feet.
