Well, with a little work I was able to get my gun running again. I had to give the prongs on the extension a little nudge to get them to align with the receiver holes, then lightly used a round file and some 220 grit paper and oil to knock Down the high spots that were causing the extension to jam against the barrel chamber. All in all, just a few thousandths. Runs smoothly agian, shot it and worked perfectly.
Can't emphasize enough to never shoot without the recoil buffer in place. I'm sure that the tang slamming into the receiver without it in their is what cause the problem. No receiver damage, not even a scuff.
The tang filed and sanded very easily, it is not hard metal, which is why it didn't ping the receiver. Took maybe 10 minutes.
Last step it to hit it with some paint to keep off any rust.
I'm going to keep looking for a replacement as a spare, and am going to buy up parts as I find them as they are getting hard to find.
If you ever have the same problem, let me know and i will tell you exactly what I did to effect the repair.
