here you go

notice the second simulation how the rim of the cartridge rides up the face of the slide up under the extractor.. BTW polishing the face of the slide so the cartridge slides easier is another option most folks don't look at.

If you do what I did also like Wilson does the cartridge pops straight up when released from the magazine and is perfectly pointing straight into the chamber before the slide moves forward. The video shows that it is not perfectly aligned like my adjustment allowes it to be.

good advice. alot of times with fte and stove pipes is also that the ejector can clock back and forth.
i was having with problem with an old thompson GI issue. I replaced the firing pin block or stop with an oversized from brownells, hand fit it to the slide to help the extractor from twisting. never looked back.
this is more of a problem on lesser quality guns such as thompson's since they were cranked out for war purposes. many times when ppl swap the extractor the new one was made a shade off too though.
keep that in mind too if you continue to have fte issues

Only issue I had with FTF's was using a recoil spring that was too heavy and did not allow enough time to eject round one from cutout in slide, and allow round 2 to strip and feed.
Basically the action was too fast, round 2 bumped round one on the way out.
Lowering the recoil spring poundage by 2 lb at a time, I found the sweet weight that allowed enough hang time between fully opened and beginning to close again that allowed feeds of any type round, and charge of load.
Think I ended up about 10.5 lb, YMMV.

This explained a lot, and gave an idea of the hang time required to properly feed.

Coincidentally, it tightened my grouping and bettered my return to POI consistency.
