View Full Version : Extractor Pin.

November 11, 2001, 04:30 PM
Hi everyone:

I am trying to remove the extractor from my SW 6906 but the pin seems to be very, very tight.

I struck it a couple of times with a punch and since it didnĀ“t come out I stopped trying in fear that I may break or mushroom the pin. No damage done but I need to replace the extractor.

Do you have any usefull advice for me on this tight pin??

Any input would be highly welcomed.

Thank you very much. :cool:

Hellequin, this pin is under pressure from the extractor spring. It may take a little extra umph to get it out. Make sure you have the correct drift for this. I always try to remove these type pins from the inside of the slide to avoid possibly scratching it. George

Dear George:

Which tools (drift, punches, etc) would you recommend to make this job in a good, fast, trouble free way??

Thanks. :)
