    1911 damaging brass

    My 1911 is messing up my casings a bit. The top is getting dented in. Also, there is a small dent on the side. Is there anything i can do to get the brass to come out cleanly?

    Check your extractor for clocking.

    Which model 1911? Lowering and flaring the ejection port (almost standard on good-quality 1911s these days) usually reduces any case denting to a minimum. In any event, the denting gets squared away easily in the resizing operation. Also, if your gun is a bit long in the tooth the ejector (not extractor) may be loose or worn; certainly a simple task for a pistolsmith to replace.
