During a search for extractor tuning, I found something that mentioned burrs in the inside of the extractor claw could cause some hangups.

How does one polish the inside of the claw of the extractor? What tools/type of polish does one use? Will Flitz or JB bore cleaner do the trick or do I need something else?

Thanks

Mike

Just get some 600 - 1000 grit emery paper and cut a very fine (2 mm) strip about 10" long.

Polish the inside of the extractor (use the emery like dental floss).

Also, while you're at it - slightly round off/polish the the bottom radius that is right below the extractor groove.
