Power Extractor problems and fixes
I am posting this to help others to overcome the Para power extractor problems I have had, namely FTE's
After one year and around 8000 rounds in my P-16 Limited I started to have FTE's. Then the oringinal claw sheared off. Para sent a new one but I still had FTE's every 100 rounds or so ruining my USPSA matchs. :evil: I talked to Para and they sent me a new complete power extractor. Right away I noticed the new extractor was re-designed with a shorter plunger, longer spring and both were twice as large as the old PE. :-?
Para must be trying to solve a design problem. :wink:
After around a 1000 rounds I started to have FTE's with the new and better PE. I put the old one in and it worked for around a 1000 rounds then started to FTE after 100 rounds or so. :cry:
Well I had tried pulling and cleaning the PE after every 2 or 3 hundred rounds and really oiling it up. I tried oiling the PE after each stage of a match but still random FTE's.
Well I will finally get the point and my fix. :P I pulled and cleaned the PE the poked it in a jar of grease completely coating it. I even put some grease in the slide PE hole. After re-assembly I wipe off the excess from the breach face area. No more FTE's after 1000 rounds without a cleaning of the PE. :lol: I thought to test my fix on the lighter design PE and what do you know it too worked without a problem for over a 1000 rounds. I have not had a FTE for many 1000's of rounds and only pull and clean the PE every couple of thousand rounds now. I guess the grease keeps the crud from getting into the PE's inner works and keeps in working properly.
If any of you start to have FTE's with a PE grease it up before you break the claw.
Well for what its worth that is what happened and how I solved it.
Good luck and happy shooting.
