700 extractor replacement

I broke the extractor on my 338 rum and I want to replace it. I ordered a new extractor and rivet from Midway today. I have stripped the bolt. What is the best way to remove the rivet? Should I drill it out? What size drill? When peening the new rivet, what is the best approach to get the best results? I have seen the anvils for peening the rivets and I will probably make one. Any other advice to make this as painless as possible?

Re: 700 extractor replacement

With a hardened 1/16" center punch you should be able to knock the rivet out. I made my own anvil also just like the ones you see for sale. I peen it over then possibly have to file it down and peen some more. You don't want any of the rivet sticking up or it will rub in the counter bore.

Re: 700 extractor replacement

I got a new magnum extractor from Midway yesterday and installed it this morning. Went to the range to do a little load development and noticed the extractor isn't working the way it should. If I insert a cartridge, it will extract it perfectly. If I chamber a round and shoot, when I open the bolt, the case is still in the chamber. If I close the bolt again, it will pick up the spent casing and eject it. I compared this new extractor to the extractor on my other 700 rifle, it is installed correctly, but I noticed that the lip on my other extractor sticks out towards the casing .025 more than the new one. Any thoughts?

Re: 700 extractor replacement

Like you said the lip isn't sticking out far enough and is just barely snapping over the rim. When you fire the cartridge is pushed off the extractor. The Remington factory extractors are ok when they work. I'd recommend having a sako extractor installed and no more problems.

Re: 700 extractor replacement

Kevin,

are there differences in the factory remington replacement extractors as far as the amount of grip they have? I am thinking strongly about installing a Sako extractor, since hunting in griz country isn't the place to have an extractor fail. How much do you charge to install the Sako?

Re: 700 extractor replacement

I can't say I've seen a .025" difference in extractor lips before but I normally see variances in the undercut groove that the factory extractor springs into. It's tough to decipher without seeing how the factory extractor working. You can send me your bolt and I'll check it out. If I can make the factory extractor work I will, if not a sako is the next best option. It's $100 plus $7 for return shipping. Normal turn around is 1-2 weeks.
