My experience with the Sako (bad) is with my Lazzeroni Patriot. It was a failure to eject, extraction was perfect but the spent case would usually just fall back into the action as if it hit the wall of the ejection port. So, 'smith A decides to modify the ejection port thinking the case mouth was contacting the front of the port (after I told him it didn't) & as you can imagine it didn't help. I finally get hooked up with my current 'smith who thinks maybe the plunger isn't kicking the brass enough (Lazz SA brass very heavy) to throw it clear of the ejection port. After modifying the plunger some, it still doesn't run 100%, so back in it goes... Chad (Dixon) finally discovers the extractor in design is causing a binding action on the rim of the case, after putting a small chamfer on the ends of the extractor, we now have 100% function, as we should.

Now, lets talk installation. I'm sure you've seen the install video posted here, myself being a safety professional by trade, I get somewhat anal when the "what if's" come into play. When installed, there is NOTHING holding the Sako extractor in place other than friction... NOTHING. In the very small chance of a catastrophic case rupture, that bad boy is free to go pretty much anywhere it wants. With my luck, that would be straight down the lug raceway into my face...

The M-16 extractors are cross pinned into place, it isn't much, but it is 100% more than the Sako has.

Can it happen? Yup, already has... Will it happen? probably not, but I'm not a particularly good gambler.
Does that hold true for the Howa 1500/ Specific Weathergy vanguard actions and the Mark 5 looks similar, but notched at top for lug and actually not as wide as the Howa

Re: remington ultramag extractor issues

Thanks guys, I guess I have been lucky before. I have never had an issue. I should have known as my current smith has asked me if I want the mod when we did the build. This is the earliest 700 action I have ever used, maybe some of them were worst than others but it does not get a very good hold on the case. Plus as I said I feel the RWS brass is a little shy in rim here to on some cases.


Mike pics and your assessment would be awesome.

Thanks

Jeff

Re: remington ultramag extractor issues

I was wondering if the Howa was M16 or sako style, same on WBY Mark 5. I looked and they are pinned. Thanks

Re: remington ultramag extractor issues

Changing bolts will likely change your headspace. It is possible your factory extractor is bent, work hardened, etc, and a new one will give reliable service. A properly installed m16 would be a great upgrade.

The Howa has an m16 type.

Re: remington ultramag extractor issues

Are the m16 placed above the lug or has anyone tried the install method of putting the m16 extractor inside the lug to get the .3 oclock hold on the case and if anyone has how did they do it . I have heard of issues with placing above the lug having the case ejecting to far up and contacting the scope anyone seen these issue and how to keep from happening
