Anyone have problems with extractor rivet
And if i replace it what was the original cause of it breaking? Thanks ramsey
Are you say the rivet shank broke or just the peened over part of it on the outside of the bolt or the head inside?
Why it broke? The bolthead and extractor are both harder than the rivet and if it worked loose over time with use something eventually had to give, the softer rivet.
As long as the extractor is in good shape you can just have a new rivet installed. Its the same as those used in 700s, 760s and etc.
The bad news, you also need or should have the staking tool that goes inside the bolt face to support the head while peening the outside and expanding the shank otherwise it a bear to get them flush on the inside and tight. Its about 10-15 minute job installing one with the right tools.
