    Dremel or tweek

    I have a 1895CB and while working on the bolt, the ejector launched itself into neverland; in the past I have launched other gun parts but I always found them, but not this time. Anyway I ordered a new part. When it arrived I installed it got the extractor jam I have since read about. My response was to carefully Dremel the claw until the jam ceased. After reading up more on the jam, I see that bending the extractor is also a common fix. I am now second guessing myself and wonder, as the extractor wears, will it not extract. I make it habit to buy two of any item I launch, so there is another in the mail. I assume it will have the same issue, so I'm thinking of fitting the extractor in the event I need to replace the current extractor. Would you bend or Dremel? or does it not matter?

    I would ever-so-slightly bend it. I personally don't like to dremel unless polishing or taking a lot of metal off. Use a stone if you have one.
    good luck. I have found parts with two strip magnets attached to a mop broom. I even had a sticky back magnet on a vaccum cleaner. (not turned on of course)

    Well, yes, the extractor will wear eventually to where it won't extract. That's the price of having it work the way it should in the meantime. Everything eventually wears until it breaks of doesn't work.

    But for your Marlin's extractor, it will likely take the rest of your lifetime. It only has brass to abrade it. And they're not expensive. And you know how to replace them.

    Some bend the extractors, some grind them. Some extractors break while being bent.

    You pays your money and you make your choice.

    Sounds like a case of if it works don't fix it..
