    Ranger Point Extractor

    Just ordered a Ranger Point Extractor for my 1894c. Cant imagine there will be any problem installing it, but has anyone done so and have any tips?

    Don't let the spring get away from you! I've heard of folks putting their hands and the bolt in a large clear bag while installing it.

    It made a huge improvement in the functioning of my 1894 32-20, in fact, it wouldn't run worth a hoot without it. Send pictures!

    I'm always disappointed when a liar's pants don't catch on fire.

    Piece of cake install, just follow their video. Took me a whole 3 minutes to complete, hardest thing was knocking out the pin with the little punch they provide. Definitely a one time use product. Didn't really fix my problem, but I'm leaving it in there till it breaks.

    I've outfitted all my 1894's with them. Install is easy. The punch you need comes with it. Just have the bolt on a solid non-marring surface. I have a nylon bench block I use. I even swapped one between rifles at the range shooting bench when testing them.

    Thanks all. Job done. No issues except the retaining pin was harder to drive out than I expected. I ran a mag full through and it works well. Ranger Point thoughtfully provided a spare spring, which I think may be a good thing. I also took the chance to clean out the hole properly with pipe cleaners.

    I much prefer the design to the old one, which now becomes a spare. The new extractor has a very different shape and feel to the action. Seems better, more positive. The real test is of course lots of use. Well, someone has to do it.

    I know this is an older thread. I got a .44 CB JM a few months back and cleaned it right after I got it. All looked good but I did not try to run it. I added the Skinner peep as I want to shoot steel with lead. I started working up a load and when I checked the 1st one it would not feed into the chamber. It appears the case head will not go under the extractor. The only way to get it to work was to shake it around a bit to get it load from the ejector side. I took the bolt out and the extractor was VERY stiff. I could barely move it using a shell and pushing it.I pulled the extractor out and the spring had a strange bend to it. I tried to work on it but finally gave it up and ordered a RPP extractor. I'm hoping that will fix my problem. I'm guessing it has been a problem for the previous owner and that is why it was sold. I will clean the hole the extractor fits in.
    Have a great day.

    Well, advantage of an old thread is that I can now report after several months of regular use. I shoot, until recently, the 1894c almost weekly, maybe three times a month on average and the extractor has performed flawlessly. I would recommend it to anyone.

    Update on the CB. I worked on the spring some more and filed a bit on the lower edge of the extractor. Put it back together and it would run with the Hornady XTP 240s great.
    Not with the 240 gr Keith style 240s. Did some measuring and studying and I don't think it will run those with the sharp edges that bullet has. It will catch on the chamber edge before going in. I then put a try shell together with the Beartooth 240gr WFN. It seems to run good and does not have that sharp edge just in front of the case mouth. I still have my RPP extractor coming as when I shoot it with my repairs it may not extract. Just something to during the shutdown.
    Have a great day.

    Ditto.
