No,I don't think so, Marlin doesn't think there is a problem with the extractor or the trigger guard. If they use better quality parts, you will see retail prices rise, then people will complain that the price is going up.

If you buy a Marlin, you are going to have to settle for cast parts instead of forged and plastic instead of metal.

Wait a minute DD, aren't you the one who exposed the missing barrel threads, and said they are building a sub-standard gun?

I never said they were sub-standard, they are just made to a price point, it is what it is, and you get what you pay for, a $300.00 rifle no more - no less.

There is nothing untrue in my statement, they do use cheap MIM cast parts ,you yourself just posted that you replaced 3 extractors last week, I can't remember replacing any extractors in any of my other bolt actions, and they do use soft cheap plastic,look at the many owners of X guns that had to replace their trigger guards,you have to ask yourself, what does this thing cost to make? That is just the reality when you buy a $300.00 rifle today.

Hey DD----Just what does a person have to do to make the Savage extractor fit on a Marlin? Do you have to do a little grinding on some surfaces or what? And you say Savage extractor, do you mean like the one that is on the Axis/Edge rifles?

I broke my extractor on my 284 this weekend, so now I'm out of action until the new ones arrive. I got 2 on warrenty, and bought 2 others for spares.

I would like to know if there is any special trick to installing the new ones. They look like you just press,tap them in. It looks like you just place it on the outside edge of the bolt body, and tap them towards the center face.

I had trouble chambering some of the first shells, smoothed the outside and made sure it had some CLP on it and things went to normal. It seems like the outside of extractor is a little rough to start with, maybe thats one of reasons they break. Can't slide out to let the case pop into the bolt. Just a thought.

nope, no special tricks, just a ball and spring holding it in. Slide whats left of the old one out and slide the new one in. Of course when mine broke, it all came out naturally. :eek: :)

I haven't broken an extractor yet. I Bought my 30-06 in January of 09. I've only shot about 30 rounds through it, but I sure have cycled 10x that many through it unloading it several times a day during hunting season. I took the bolt out last weekend and pushed the extractor around a bit. I can make it jam to the outside of the bolt. I put a case in & out of the bolt head & it grabs good every time.

Should I be worried? I'd sure hate for that to happen when I cycle the bolt for a follow up shot.

Personally, I think it's something to be concerned about, I don't really trust the extractors on the X series guns, too many have failed, and I would hope that Marlin addresses the problem with a fix or an updated piece, maybe replace the cast extractor with a forged one.
