    Question on reloading

    What is the differance of loading your semi-auto from the magazine and just loading a round straight into the chamber?

    I've always seen people say that straight loading will/can cause the extractor to break. I'm guessing cause the extractor has to push past the round to go into full battery. But does'nt that happen either way?

    Just wondering...

    No. When a round is fed out of the magazine it first comes up and into the groove of the extractor.

    right loading a round straight into the chamber then slamming the slide down on it could break the extractor; The extractor just wasn't really designed to flex that far.. Most times it would be the claw part the breaks and this is bad because you won't know it broke until you need the pistol.

    Like pistola said when the slide strips a round the rim will be fed into the open groove at the bottom of the slide.
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    One other problem, since the slide slams forward faster a weak firing spring can cause a slam fire. I had this happen with a Bersa 22 many years ago.

    It can damage the extractor on a Glock. Can't speak for other makes.

    I guess it depends on what weapon you have. I have never had a problem or malfunction because of it.


    From: Beretta-L Factory Armorer Class Notes

    "The second reason behind the 180* port is what Beretta calls 'emergency tactical loading'. In other words, it is very easy to drop a round into the chamber of a slidelocked 92-series pistol. While most firearm manufacturers recommend against direct chamber loading because of possible damage to the extractor claw, the 92-series guns were designed with this capability in mind; you will not hurt your extractor by direct chamber loading."

    I would stay away from doing it with your Glock or most pistols for that matter. Unless You can find it stated differently somewhere in the owners manual like the example quoted above.
