    So I picked up a new to me nighthawk counselor, very nice pistol it fits great in my hands. But I’ve not had time to fire it yet but I did notice that the extractor is a little lose up and down like I can wiggle it slightly with my finger. My t4’s extractor is tight fit I can’t fill it wiggle...

    While at the range today, my CT Brian was leaving an occasional spent casing in the firing chamber :unsure: obviously causing feeding malfunctions, about once per magazine (9 round, 9mm) I sent an email off to CT Brian and he confirmed that the extractor probably needed some additional tension...

    I broke an extractor. Recommendations for replacement? I had a spare I carried for 40 years. Now I need to pick up a couple more to replace that one. Since I have one Series 80, I’d like to get one that does both flavors. Looking at Brownells, there are lots to choose from. Wilson Bullet Proof...

    Hey everyone, I've been playing around with learning how to tension an extractor on my project gun and I set the tension at a point where it could hold onto a live round snugly against the breachface. I took it to the range, shot it and it passed the extractor test just fine, consistently...

    Hey folks, I encountered an issue with my Springfield RO Elite Operator today. This has had a Wilson Combat reliability package and a wilson bp extractor fit by them. This is its first malfunction in 1140 rounds so I'm a little bummed that it appears I'm not entirely out of the woods yet with...

    After a range trip today, broke down my dw guardian 9mm. First time removing the extrator, and it was difficult to remove. Had to use some pliers to remove it from rear of slide after depressing hook into the channel. Cleaned out some gunk with the Wilson tool, swapped some springs, cleaned and...

    I know what is desirable here in a well tuned extractor, but if you have a new 1911 that does everything right, including feeding everything, great accuracy, and good positive ejection, 3-5’ away, at 3-4:00, but, as with many, the last case in the magazine will not eject without the mag...

    Pulled the extractor from a new Vigil to smooth/radius bottom edge/corner. Who manufactures this? Never seen one like it before; entire piece is round and unlike any I’ve seen before. It is a 9mm.

    S.A. RO Operator. 9mm Bought two new Metalform magazines, Springfield style, just to experiment. Went to range, shot some targets. Noticed something on the empty brass I had not seen before. Thought maybe it was the new magazines...

    I make no pretense at being a good gun tech. I don't even play one among my newbie friends. But, thanks to some posts here and some WC and Brownells videos at Youtube U, I have seen the need for and made an adjustment to the extractor tension on my EMP 3. Dummy rounds indicate a solid...

    So I've got a recently acquired Valor in 9mm. I've tried all the tricks that I can think of to remove the extractor without risking a nasty scratch from something slipping. I feel like I need a third hand. In my searches I came across this tool by Dawson...

    time for the extractor in my Kimber to go away. I am going to replace it with a Wilson bulletproof. the question is, since it is a 10mm, do I need a 38 super extractor?

    I need a couple of these. Looking for your set aside extractor after you upgraded. Need one primarily blued, but could use a spare or two in either blue or stainless. If yoiu have a few of these laying around your parts drawer, Curly is looking to buy a couple. I would go retail and get one...

    Is there any way to check a 1911 with internal extractor for push feeding? I have been checking around and can't find the answer. I think the round comes out of the magazine and slides between the breech face and extractor as the slides moves forward so when the round enters the barrel it is...

    I'm working on tuning the Extractor on my EMP9 project. I was reading that that the hook tip should contact the shell and not the tension wall as with .45 is this correct?

    Well after buying a few sets of thin VZ grips from a forum member, I had plans to swap out my NHC Bob Marvel and Baer Recon grips. Last Tuesday after picking up the Recon from my FFL, I went home to start the Grip swap. I ordered Thin Fully Machined Grip bushings and screws from Nighthawk...

    From what I have read, I understand the interface between the extractor and bullet case is different for 9mm as the claw is in contact with the rebate as supposed to the flat against the rim on 45. Is that correct? I've seen a lot of 45 extractor prep pics and diagrams but nothing specifically...

    anyone use one of these?

    ok guys I have a Wesson v-bob. And my extraction is soft as ****. I am a extraction nazi and cannot stand watching round after round barely make it out of the gun!! So I bought a weigand adjustment tool and gauges. When I first checked before I did anything it was right at 9 ounces. So I...
