    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...
