    Marc, read post #5, autoloaders don't have cylinders. Try the word chamber.

    Do you know anybody who has an Untra Sonic tank cleaner system ?? i suggest using one if you can find one. Otherwise give the extractor a good blowing out with Gun Scrubber. Blow dry and re-lube. That might help also

    But i did look at the picture very closely witha loop and it looks like the extractor need to be replaced.

    This is one of those things you are going to have to go at one step at a time. I would get a punch set and take the extractor pin out and inspect the extractor's cavity. I would at least order a new extractor spring from Gun Parts Corp. if not a extractor. It didn't look bad to me, but a picture may not show wear. With what you are describing, the extractor and spring is the place to start. According to the schematic the pin drives out from the slide's interior.

    The first thing I do with a used semi auto, after a complete cleaning is REPLACE the recoil and Mag(s) springs.

    You can spray the snot out of the extractor and internals with GunScrubber or Brake Cleaner. Then blow it out with a can of air Don't keep putting oil on it. Use some solvent if you don't want to remove the extractor.

    I will bet it is the recoil/mag springs.

    From your original post:

    Towards the end of my session it managed two magazines with no malfunctions and on the 3rd made it to the last round before failing to extract and jamming the last round between the breech face and the fired case.

    A failure of the last round is often a weak magazine spring. The mag spring and the recoil sprin work together. Often a weak mag spring causes stove pipes and failure to feed which will in turn screw everything else up.

    It's an old gun, chances are all the springs are worn. Consider it cheap insurance tuneup. One less thing to worry about. For $7-* dollars it is worth nowing it is new,
    MecGar mags are the OEM for many gun makes including SW

    Cool, just placed an order for a service pack, only 15 bucks. By the way, thanks every one for being so helpful. Its very cool and refreshing to see a forum for anything that is actually active with the existence of Facebook these days.

    Hey guys, I just wanted to provide some closure to this thread for any one who might ever have this problem and needs some advice. Thanks again for all the help, every one was very helpful here. I got my spring kit from gunsprings.com and it made a huge difference. I took it back out too the range afterwards and ran over 100 rounds through it with out a single malfunction, it kept pace with my 2017 Sig p250 for reliability. I also ordered for it just to finish things out two new mecgar smith and wesson 5906 17rd mags and a pair of Hogue wood grips. The mags fed flawlessly, and I love the new grips over the old nylons. So in conclusion. Defintily consider a spring kit if you are experiencing any lack luster performance out of your original SW 59. It also gave me an opportunity to really take the gun down to the bare components and really clean it out and man was it filthy in ways you would never be able to see. Name:  smith1.jpg
