Guys i'm in need of some help on replacing the extractor and having it fit correctly. I've wrecked 3 extractors already. There goes 60 bucks!!

The problem i'm having is when i put the extractor in it sits to far back. I've tried bending the loose end straight, in, out and still can't get it to work. Then when i try to pull it out i wreck it. It seems that you have to get it right the first time or else. This extractor is the one with 1 rivet. I don't want to take this to a gunsmith, I want to learn how to do this properly. Any tips on this. The extractor i use is from numrich.

DAVE: It may not be you. I've gotten a few extractors that were too brittle, and they can give you a fit. There are several books and web sites that show the proper way to set them.
