No harm done. If it's it's own spring then, and it's not extracting the spent shell from the barrel, could this be my issue? Just get this replaced and see what happens?
After I fire a shot, I have to manually extract the shell from the barrel. I can see were the extractor tried to grab the shell, there are markings on it. Could it just not be grabbing it correctly?
