Interarms is no longer in business but I believe the Star pistols are still being imported..although I don't know by whom...  You might try some of the internet search engines,,  These are good little weapons, I've not heard of any particular problems with the extractor.. unless the chamber may have been a bit rusty!!  Good luck!!

I had to put a heavier spring in the extractor to get it to work correctly and I put too much preasure on it and broke the end off. Funny thing is the pistol still works good. I'm a little leary of replacing it at all. I figure I could make one easy enough, not too much to it. But I would rather repace it with factory if I can find one. I looked all over the net the other night and could only find magazines and a few pistols for sale. I don't think anyone is importing them anymore. Real shame, they are a pretty nice pistol. I have them in the 40,45, and the 45 megastar. KN

I'll check my links list to see if I can find them..  You might try Wisner's or KingGunWorks...  It's possible they may have something.  I came close to buying several just couldn't seem to DO IT..    If you were having that much trouble with the ejector I'd consider burnishing the chamber..  It's either a but rough or has a bit of rust...  Steel wool and a brass rod in a drill will really do the trick..
