.220 Swift update

So I've had problems with fired casings not ejecting in this '03 Springfield .220
Swift conversion, I was told by the talented folks on this site, that most likely cause was the extractor. So I did order a new extractor (NOS 30.06) which of course would not work with the .220 conversion with out very minor mod (easy as eating pie) Well, today I did get to the range to test it out, WOW....worked flawlessly...this rifle is a keeper, I could not believe the groups this rifle produces. I know this rifle is an old school build but, don't know who he 'smith was. All I find on this is a stamp (faint that is " .220 Swift
Jaeger) No matter , it's smooth as silk and, shoots well. Love it.
