WW2 cyq P38 Extractor Spring
While trying to resolve a jamming problem with this gun, I took it down. I have an extractor question that should be pretty easy to answer -- With the slid and barrel off, the extractor moves freely - if I hold the gun up, the extractor pivots down. If I hold it upside down it swings back in place. I checked field striping procedure on line and says to hold extractor down during reassembly indicating there should be some tension. I know the replacement spring package for the P38 includes an extractor spring. How should the extractor perform?
