If you have ever struggled with bending an extractor to get just the exact tension, this tool is for
you. Extractor tension is very critical on a 1911 for proper extraction and ejection. If
the extractor is too tight the pistol will not go into battery smoothly or sometimes not
at all. If the extractor is too loose your brass flies every which way and sometimes not
completely out of the slide. With this tool you can precisely adjust your extractor
virtually to the ounce each time.
The following is a link to an written article on the use of this product:
You simply bend the extractor by
turning the knob clockwise until it bottoms out on the stop. Simply adjust the stop (screw
with the nut attached) in or out for more or less extractor tension. No more over-bending
and under-bending with pliers or a vise. Smooth, precise adjustments each time you try.
