Don't know why the garble, it's a .JPEG picture with the text in the picture.
Basically I said that I ground the ledge from the forward flat of the ejector, as shown elsewhere, to creat the extractor function and do away with the ejector function.
I replaced the original ejector/extractor with one for the .223 but didn't use the new, lighter spring. I kept the older heavier spring that levers the ejector/extrator up to the rim.
The problem I had after rechambering to .221 fireball from .22 hornet was that the extractor was being pulled down by the breach face when I opened the action. That pulled the extractor away from the recessed rim and failed to extract the cartridge.
I came up with the idea of adding a small ramp and pad under the extractor so when it is drawn into the chamber it is cammed up to hold the rim of the cartridge. This prevents the breach face from pulling the extractor down when the action is opened. I used small welding torch to place the ramp/pad under the extractor.
I hope that makes sense cause it works 100% for me now and I just thought that someone else might benefit from my experience.
I'm sorry that my original post was not as ledgible as I had hoped. It was my first attempt and I had hoped that I could help someone like me who was trying to make a good rifle shoot better.
I'm sorry that my diagram wasn't perfect, I was at work and trying to remember what things looked like and didn't do a very good job.
I'm sorry that I don't have much experience posting in a forum like this.
I'm sorry "quickdtoo", you are right, it is a spring driven extractor, but it works 100% for me, that was my point.
I appreciate the comment from MSP Ret, thank you for your thoughts and comments.
I don't believe that the comments from the moderator, "quidkdtoo", were constructive or helpful.
I think that I will refrain from being part of this forum as long as there is a sanctimonious, self rightious, condescending A-Hole as a moderator.
Nobody likes to be criticized when they are only trying to help.
I guess as "quickdtoo" puts it, IN ENGLISH, goodnight and goodbye!
Oh yeah, "quickdtoo" jibberish is spelled with two b's not one.
But then, who really cares if you don't know any better!
