Range Report for Razorback #5
http://www.imagestation.com/album/?id=4290337519

Picture of instrument above.

Note: First time I took the RZ to the range it would not feed anything, called DW and they told me Extractor must be too tight and to loosen it up myself, or send it in to them and let them do it. I of course loosened it up my self so I could shoot sooner. They told me the reason the gun fed for the factory proof and not for me was a phenomen called extractor memory, the ectractor is made for 9mm, DW has to loosen them up to make them work for 10mm because no one makes a 10mm extractor for 1911's. Anyway the extractor tightened back up on the way to me due to the memory of the metal. So I loosened the extractor, checked for good manual feed and extraction and headed to range.

Ok boys and girls let's start.

Ammo:

CCI Blazer 200 gr TMJ
Winchester Silvertips 175 gr HP
Hornady XTP 180 gr HP
Master Cartridge 170gr FMJ Trunicated Cone
PMC 170 gr jacketed HP

Range: Ozark Sportsmen Supply Indoor Pistol Range in Tonitown, AR, $10 for a lane, range is brand spanking new, very nice.

All rounds fired at a distance of 10 yards. Accuracy was amazing, almost all holes touched, except for some flyers from Double Taps and screwing around speed stuff.

Started with Blazers I shot about 60 rounds with no problems then I get a fail to feed, apears the extractor had rotated to the right a smidge causeing it to get in the way of the feed, Phil said that if this happened to loosen the extractor more because the extractor floats around a little. Anyway the CCI Blazers didn't want to feed perfect now so I changed ammo, since CCI Blazer is aluminum case.

I loaded up two full mags of Master Cartridge, before I knew I had shot all 50 rounds no problems and had a nice big grin on my face. Oh yeah, my hand was a touch sore!

PMC didn't want to feed very well, put them up.

Silvertips, I loaded up 8, one fail to feed.

Horandy, I loaded up 8 all worked fine. The flash from these rounds was so fun I had to load up a few more. People watching from the range window would jump every time I lit one off.




I then took gun home bent the extractor some more and tried manual feed and extract on all ammo I had problems with, seems the problems have been fixed. I will be going to a outside range Thursday the 17th for more shooting, will report back.

I'm truly glad you got your pistol up and running, and I hope it serves you well.

...a phenomen called extractor memory, the ectractor is made for 9mm, DW has to loosen them up to make them work for 10mm because no one makes a 10mm extractor for 1911's. Anyway the extractor tightened back up on the way to me due to the memory of the metal.

Some things just seem to plague a company no matter how many times they've been re-started. I will say this about DW, ever since Dan died, nothing about their guns happens for which they can't offer an excuse. :rolleyes:

I wonder where Springfield and Kimber get their .40 S&W extractors? :neener:

Well, yeah, it was either extractor memory, or the frannispan fluid was polarized the wrong way when it flowed through the magneto-gonkulator.
