Re: Remington 700 Broker extractor
I think i have posted this same subject before, i was a Remington repair station back in the 80's, i did at least one extractor replace a week! Most were not broken, they just don't work. All were mag calibers 700models. I started offering the AR-15 replace, most just wanted the gun fixed back to original. I had several guys call me from the middle of no where during elk season with a stuck case in the chamber and the extractor slips off, this was the basic problem of the 700's ive seen. I have put in many Sako refits also, i have never seen one come out or being blown out, but if its not fit right by the gunsmith anything is possible. The only thing i dont like about the re-fit is the ejection is higher and the cases will hit the scope turrets on some scope types, but they will put out some very hot loaded cases.
