As far as the ammo goes, WWB has run through mine without serious fouling. I don't know, maybe it was a "dirty" lot? Hard to say.

Hope this helps. Good luck.
Thanks RoadRunner. The extractor looks good, no signs of cracks, chips, or wear. The ejector has a funny angle, quite different from my Glock 19, but from what I have read, this is normal.

Note that when the casing was in the chamber, I could not pull it out with my finger, or shake it out. I had to use a rod to push it out, and it took a bit of force. Once thing I did not think to do at the time was to check the casing to see if it had ruptured. I should have done that.
