    Interesting! If it is a push feed, it should be fully compatible with direct chamber loading, but still only if approved by the manufacturer - generally.

    The Beretta PX4 I know has a rotating barrel and it is not a push feed. I think the Cougar has a rotating barrel and I doubt it's a push feed but I don't know for sure.

    I'm certain that when some early extractors were made from MIM there were all sorts of various assorted extractor related failures, chipping and breakage regardless of direct chambering or not.
    That is because MIM is not noted for its ability to flex.

    Personally any 1911 that I carry will always sport a properly fit aftermarket extractor.

    The machined tool steel HD extractors are quite overbuilt and are probably 5 times tougher than they need to be.

    That's fine with me.

    Good point QKS; all my 1911s have tool steel extractors as well.

    Thanks John, I appreciate you reposting the models and the clarification that you were not implying that those were the only ones.

    Same for me, I'm just posting the ones I know are ok, not to imply that they are the only ones.
