Never heard of anything like that. How many rounds (and extractor pins?) have you gone through?

What are you calling an extractor pin?

Well, there's your problem, stop throwing it!!


ETA: I thought I would make this one of my meaningful posts. I suppose it might be helpful if we know what model it is.

I am having a problem trying to think of anything that could cause an extractor pin to shear off (and it would have to shear), unless it was made of plastic or wood. Mxreloader, could you post a picture of what is breaking and show the broken part(s). Thanks.

Jim
