Ordered a new Series 80 form Brownells for my Colt Defender 3in. The new extractor seems to be slightly longer then the extractor that I removed. My question is should they be exactly the same in size or will the new extractor work OK?

Thanks....

Longer in the front or back? An aftermarket extractor projecting slightly beyond the rear of the slide is common. The pistol doesn't care. Nor do I. Not enough to spend an hour filing, checking, filing, refinishing, etc. ;)

extractor

it go's all the way in but the firing pin stop fits tight with the new extractor.....looks like like maybe 1/4 in longer then the Colt extractor that came out.
