You should NEVER
'drop' a roung into the chamber and release the slide stop allowing it to go to battery.
This forces the extractor out and around the base of the round. Not a design function of the extractor. The round is captured as it slides up from the mag and behind the extractor on its way to battery.
When using snap-caps, always feed them from the mag.
