View Full Version : Hi Power extractor

How hard is it to replace the extractor on a Browning Hi Power pistol? The one in mine looks cracked down the middle. Anywhere I can find instructions or any advice on doing this?

First, is it the internal or external type?

Nobody has ever replaced a Hi-Power extractor?

Externals are easy. Pull the slide off , turn it over, punch the roll pin out the top.
You don't have to punch it all the way out unless you are replacing it as well.
A new roll pin is a b##ch to get started sometimes.

Be sure to capture the spring at the back of the extractor. A turn of tape to secure the extractor is what I use to keep it together.

Make sure you have a good pin punch of the right size, and a soft hammer to put the pin back down. Sorry I don't remember the pin punch size.

Hope this helps. goldy
