    You are correct about that

    Here's a good read as well:

    Here's another good one and watch the Brownells video. Very helpful for challenged folks such as me.

    A video by Wilson Combat said to bend the extractor till it held an empty case when you gently shake the slide. That's an easy test.

    The short trigger arrived today. I detail stripped the frame and soaked the parts in Braklean. Looks like they made their own gravy.



    Got it back together, and it feels looser. I did test the extractor tension and it seemed ok.

    The short trigger can pinch your finger against the frame, maybe that's one reason they lengthened it.

    Looks good, though. And needed zero fitting, it slipped in perfectly.

    Was that a Flea Bay trigger or from AO or ??

    Looks like a perfect match up. I always feel so lucky when they drop in and work with zero fitting, that part always kind of skeers me.

    It's from FleaBay, it came with a nice finish almost like new. Probably refinished. No apparent wear or dings. I asked AO if they had a short trigger like in the pictures on the website, and they said no, the trigger I got is the only trigger they have.

    The dimensions of the AO's frame and triggerguard are making the short trigger sit further inside the frame than on a true GI pistol. A long, long time ago I had one of the pre-Kahr, Numrich-owned AOs and a short GI trigger looked the same way in mine.

    BTW testing the extractor tension is done with a loaded round, not an empty case. The tension should be just barely enough to hold the round in place with the slide held level. A 1911 should be reliable with ball ammo no matter what, so if the extractor tension isn't the culprit you'll need to send it back to Kahr.

    42 more rounds and itís still not running right. I think the extractor isnít grabbing the casing, making the next round choke up. Since the ďtestĒ showed it holding the casing without any wobble I presume the extractor needs loosening.
