Not me. Two Sig 1911s without issue.





Let the enemy come till he’s almost close enough to touch. Then let him have it and jump out and finish him up with your hatchet.

My S&W was perfect. Ran like a top.

All of mine do actually but I should have kept the darned thing...it just wasn’t traditional and it wasn’t a very good candidate for customization.

No problem with my Smith and Wesson Pro Series 9mm 1911.

Recent versions seem to be doing well.
But there was the overseas customer who had a dud and found it impossible to send back on "lifetime guarantee."

My E-series has run without a hiccup since new, though I confess I shoot it considerably less these days.

The Sig and Smith guns run good the Kimbers that had them junk.

Odd I have more experience with having external vs internal. No problems here even with my Kimber TLE/RLII.

I think for the most part these days external extractors 1911 are good to go.

What I don't like about external extractors there is no "standard" for 1911 external extractors they are proprietary.. each maker makes his own. This is a problem in the piston driven AR Carbines as well. Normally non proprietary parts is a positive about military weapons.

Own one on a Sig because the oddball caliber (357 Sig) was on clearance. No function issues, but I am wholly unimpressed with the aesthetic. 1911s should be slick slided, internal extractor as designed. Anything else is just meh...


A Perpetual Disappointment...

No issues with Sig or S&W E series with external extractors. I don't like the looks but they work fine.

Early production SIG P938s suffered chipped extractor claws with some frequency. Dunno if that problem has been fixed.

There are folks who would say that an external extractor 1911 is an oxymoron. Smile




Cognition?
On.

I've never had any issues with external extractors, just that they're FUGLY. I have had a few very minor issues with internal extractors sending brass straight up in the air and at you.....but never a real issue.

Based on my personal experience with all these brands, this post is absolute TRUTH.

I had a .45 1911 that had a MIM external extractor. An air pocket was in the casting and the extractor broke in half.

Bought another one for almost nothing. The extractor had been misplaced. Had to chase one down for a .17mach2 1911, but the .22lr extractor works great.

Everything else has been fine.



My other Sig is a Steyr...
