I saw in another thread where you posted this......
">>I thought what the hell might as well try the extractor slot fix. I chamfered the edge of the cut out and rounded it over well."
Please tell us more about what this fix entails (pics if possible).
The quote is better in context.....
"I noticed the gun was closing up a little slow. This is nothing new if your gun is FTE. Sometimes a shell might eject but the bolt carrier has lost so much energy doing it and then stripping the next round that that is a common response... Then I analyzed the ejected shell casings. I noticed that the extractor cut out was distorting the hull and swelling out the plastic into a little bulge. It was driving up into the slot. Usually when a gun does this it will hang up obviously in the spot. And not cause fail to ejects... I thought what the hell might as well try the extractor slot fix. I chamfered the edge of the cut out and rounded it over well. Took the gun out and it has run like a scalded dog ever since! The bulged material was causing enough drag while being extracted that it was cause the FTEs like that even with high brass! I never thought that I would see any change after rounding the cut out. Just didn't think it could cause that much drag ejecting, thought all the troubles of the sharp edge was FTFs or slow feeds. But it all paid off."
