Just don't do what the prior owner did. DO NOT LOAD A ROUND DIRECTLY INTO THE CHAMBER!!!! The extractor IS NOT DESIGNED for the extractor to slip OVER a cartridge rim. If you download a PPS manual from Walther, it states NOT to insert a round into the chamber & close the slide. Many nimrods do not know that almost ALL autoloaders are designed to be loaded from an inserted magazine ONLY. There are a few exceptions like a Baretta 92 & several others. I was taught on a 1911 NEVER to load an auto except from a mag. It's a good practice to load only from a mag on any autoloader to be on the safe side.

Should we be referred to as Waltherians or Waltherites?

I've been spotty, at best, on the forums lately due to work and wish I'd seen this thread when it was fresh. This was the best FTE report I've read, as the pics and comparisons were unusually thorough. The first pic clearly showed the culprit -- extractor wear.

Might I suggest leaving those pics in place so that this thread will continue to provide a visual record of what extreme extractor wear looks like, since most might not know it when they see it? Also, ME's point is salient, as always.

Glad you have your firearm back!

Done ... and an excellent suggestion, Surreal. Nice to see you join the living again, by the way.

Well, if it turns out that Waltherians is adopted, I claim full credit as the original inventor of the term. All royalities and proceeds will then divided fairly to all other Walther owner name proposers.

Regarding that worn extractor....were you shooting alot of steel cased ammo such as the Russian Wolf ammo?
