    for starters remington extractors are a joke. go have a mini m-16 style extractor put on it. Secondly you may be over pressured or maybe a dirty chamber... but really a new extractor is a very worth while upgrade

    Psi is ok, chamber good, brass is good,
    What/who can I send it to for a m16 extractor install, just the bolt or whole rifle?
    Getting flustrated with it.

    send your bolt to kampfield customs he can do it for around $100 he will also flute the bolt for like $60 if you like. both are very cool bolt upgrades

    He will need the barred action as the mini 16 extractors required the counter bore in the barrel to be opened up from .715 to .785ish. When installed properly a rem will rip a chuck brass out just like a sako or M16 style.

    I thought maybe you did not have to on a mini but if you look on PTG it states it in the product description. Just replaced a factory one that was weak. Factory one can be tricky to get right though.

    Do you by chance have longitudinal scratches on your brass?

    No scratches that I can. Tell, the screws for the scope rail are not protruding into the chamber.
    I shot it yesterday and 3 fail to extract . Lot of brass slivers around extractor, loads are mid power reloads.not hard to close bolt on trimmed to book spec, I'm at a loss on what issue is, done research and thinking on m 16 style extractor

    There is a simple 'fix' for that Remington extractor. It's a whole lot cheaper than having bolt alterations done, too.
