Hello Guys, FNG here, been reading the forums for a month and find them very informative and I must say you have a great bunch of members here, very civil - not like a lot of gun related forums I frequent. Anyway, I hope you dont mind me jumping right in with a question but I have the fail to extract problem on my P-3AT After 300 rounds I have only fired 2 full mags without a failure, I've used different ammo and did the F&B, keep it well lubed, I also polished the whole barrel (was parked) polished the feed ramp and buffed out the chamber, but still it will not extract from the chamber during firing. When it fails I have to drop the mag. and the barrel closes on the enpty round which ejects with authority at this point every time. I read in the Faqs about a nodification to the barrel hood, this seems like it would cure my problem, everything else seems fine. I'm hoping someone will expand on this mod. Thanks in advance.

The recommned fix for this is to remove some metal from the chamber in the barrel hood area to give the spent case more room during extraction.
