Kimber Pro CDP. Ain't never "adjusted" anything on any of 'em. They all worked from the first time I pulled the trigger. If they didn't work I replaced the magazine with a Chip McCormick, and they started working again. Some needed to be "shot in", but none of them ever needed any tweaking.
You been listening to too many Glockophiles.
i guess i wasn't making a clear thought at that time i didnt mean that a 1911 out of the box needs adjustment, what i meant was a 1911 extractor if not adjusted properly from the factory will need adjustment, and if replaced the replacement has to be adjusted properly. if it has too much or too little tension it can cause malfuntions. but the extractor on a glock or on a 1911 with external extractor doesnt have to be adjusted any particular way, as long as it has a hook that securely grabs the rim if the cartridge.
i guess what i was trying to say is that it could be a factor in choosing a weapon if any specific knowledge about maintaining that weapon or repairing that weapon is needed to be learned, either by each individual or an armorer.
heck i dont even know what i meant now
