Colt 1991A Compact 3.5" barrel not ejecting

After one shot, the shell is not ejecting and the gun jams not allowing the next bullet to cycle.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

is the case getting stuck in the chamber, stove piping?  off the top of my head could be the extractor, the round your using may not be fitting right in the chamber "case to long or wide" also may not have enough of a powder charge to get enough recoil to cycle properly.coulod also be the magazine your using, not a jab but limp wristing while shooting will produce fte and ftf.

Good call on the extractor... I took it to the smith and he will have to replace it.  Not too expensive either.  Just have to wait on the part.

hell just do it your self its crazy easy and there are tons of videos on youtube that take you thought it step by step. also if you have anywhere near 5000 rounds through it replacing the recoil spring is something you should start thinking about.

I 2nd that.  If anything.  You fail and have to resort to taking it to the smith.   Give it a shot..

I dunno, I know I am no expert on guns, but, Uh, there are certain things I deem best left to the professionals

1) Internal surgery
2) tattoos
3) hand canon repair.


Your mileage may vary.

Extractor, with some guns, the brass shavings can build up underneath it between the bolt and the extractor.

$85 for the fix.  Next time I will buy the $35 part and fix it myself.  Didn't realize it was going to be that easy... Dang!

Yeah,its almost a drop in part.When i shot matches we would keep a pre-fit spare one in your range bag.The rules were if you could fix the gun on the range with what you had you wouldnt get a DNF,you would lose points an that stage but at least you were still in the match.

How often does this part need to be replaced?
