At this point McCain is no longer fit to hold office and should be removed from same. As long as he is in office he has the power to cause more damage to our country. Time for him to say good bye.

Re: hammer thumb extention might be causing trouble?

If it fired the same ammo before the hammer extension and now won't, then it's not the ammo. There is most likely an interference problem between the hammer extension and some other part. Remove extension, try shooting. Does it shoot ? Yes or No. If yes problem identified, fix it. Check the scope mo...

The .45 Colt brass is not the weak link. Modern .45 Colt brass is the same thickness as .44 Mag brass and capable of pretty much the same pressures. Older brass is not as strong.
