Looking for parts in all the wrong places---

Check out the contact info i posted in this section "parts for llama pistols"---give mr. Lee an opportunity to see if he has that part in-stock.

I had a starvel 40.
I had one in the 90's.
Some extractor problem.
Concurrently I had some frustration with my wife yelling at me while I was herding sheep with a motorcycle.
I took the pistol back to the guy that sold it to me and threw it at him.

I wish I had a do over.
