16 Gauge Bolt repair

Well my Sears 583.20 bolt finally got sick. The other day she started failing to extract/eject well. After removing the bolt retaining screw and removing the bolt I noticed the left extractor had broken off. Then the extractor plunger and spring fell out in my hand (thank god) I took out the right side extractor claw and everything is there. Numrich has all the parts to repair for about $25. The gun has some sentimental value, would this be quick and easy for any gunsmith to fix?

Why don't you do it? You already saw how it came apart- try installing the new extractor and see if it fits.

The aggravation and my barely adequate skills have me considering paying the gunsmith...I suppose that I could try the job myself first?
