    > If the cartridge case is in front of the extractor when your last round fails to feed then try switching to Wolff "plus power" magazine springs. They are not expensive and will help keep your last round pushed up tighter against the mag feed lips.

    > If the last round cartridge case starts up into the extractor and then fails to feed then your extractor is probably tensioned a bit too tight.

    An extra power magazine spring will probably help with that problem also.
    I would not fiddle with the extractor tension just yet.
    Also when you change to extra power mag springs switch to a real slippery friction cutting gun grease on your rails rather than oil.

    Your exact problem is why Colt added that strange raised dimple on their Colt magazines with flat followers - to help prevent the magazine from letting that "last round up" get released too early.


    I wouldn't do anything more than add mag springs and use grease until you have shot your pistol in some more.
