Went to my secret gravel pit to try out the CT laser on my LCP. Shot maybe 20 times, just enough to get me amped about the laser, the last shell would not eject. Racked the slide a couple of times, no go. I looked at the slide and noticed that the extractor and related goodies had disappeared :mad: I evidently didn't get the plunger seated the last time I took the extractor out.....rats. Anyway, I spent 1 1/2 hours looking at the ground and I did find the spring and plunger, but not the extractor itself. Today at work I welded up a bunch of magnets thinking I'd go waste some more time dragging the gravel pit. On the second pass I found it! I'm thinking a trip to Vegas tomorrow might be in order...wish me luck!

Wow, nice work. Welding magnets, who'd a thought? (You apparently!)

So you're sure the issue was due to improper/incomplete installation of the extractor the last time you yanked it?

Does anyone else's extractor look slightly misaligned with the cutout of the slide where it sits? Kind of like 1/32" off and slightly at an angle?

Could you take a picture of how this the pistol misassembled. I'm having a hard time visualizing that.
Howard, I would take a pic, except when I got home I made double dam sure I got everything seated correctly :)
