The odd part is that my 19 only had 500 rounds through it while the 17 has several thousand. I wonder if some of the EDP springs are defective and compress under load earlier. I know this would cause a loss of extractor tension, but what effect would it have on ejection and extraction?
I'm sure it would have a negative effect, especially since Apex saw it fit to provide a new spring with their extractors, and I know they did a lot of testing before hand.
