The extractor broke in my HP Tactical model right in the middle of an IDPA stage last week. Fortunately, I had my Silver Chrome model with me and was able to finish the match.

It looks like a fairly straight forward job to replace it. I'm going to order the parts from Brownell,s along with a couple punches. I'm planning on replacing the spring and roll pin along with the extractor.

Before I place my order, does anyone have any tricks up their sleeve for this procedure? I'm sure I can do it, but it's always nice to have some tips in advance.

Thanks!

Hello, sir. It's really a pretty easy job providing you have the roll pins and punches.
As you likely know, you remove the slide trip lever in the slide first in order to get to the roll pin that holds the extractor. If your pins are not in too tight and damaged, you will be able to reuse them with no problems, but it's best to have spares ready just in case. You won't have to remove them completely from the slide in order to change the parts.

Best.
