Have you checked the extractor to be sure it's not worn or damaged? Look for a burr on the bottom edge just behind the claw on the claw itself. The extractors in the Metro Arms are not the best. The extractor tension may have also changed.

  1. Insure the gun (including breach face, firing pin/firing pin channel and extractor/extractor channel) AND mags are clean and everything lightly lubed.
  2. Inspect the spent cases' primer strike witness marks for flow pattern.
  3. Shoot a box of 230gr ball and see if the FTRTB remains.
  4. Take two aspirin and feel comforted that we will help you fix your problem!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
