Help...MK II newbie...replacing extractor

While I understand that the VQ 10/22 extractor can be used in the MK II I am not real sure I know how to replace it...can it be done without a complete breakdown? The plunger moves a tad rearward and stops..that's where I am

It's not a had job to do once you learn the trick. Here is link to Bullseye's site on detail stripping the bolt. http://www.guntalk-online.com/detailstrip.htm#bolt

I have found that a 90 deg pick works the best, easier to control. You place it between the plunger and extractor once the FP block pin has been moved out of the way. You normally need to lift up on the extractor so you can get your pin in place. Have the new one handy to slip in once you get the old one out.

I hope you got yours replaced.
You described the exact same problem that I was experiencing.

My first time today too.
I looked at the gun-talk instruction and photo and still clueless.

Then have to come back to this forum to look for more clues.
Found your post and thanks to blue78f100.

I used a 90 degree dentist pick. It was difficult - too sharp of a point.
Need to find a better tool for the next one.

I've done several MKII & 10/22 Extractor Changes & came up with the idea to push the plunger in from the front with a paper clip & then with a small hook to pull the extractor out of the slot.
I made the plunger pusher from a tiny drill bit that I have in a pin vise to get a good hold on it..
The Hook is a bent & cut paper clip, The plunger pusher could also be a small paper clip.
Another great tool for the Ruger pistol is a bobby pin to unlatch the mainspring housing.
Also after removing the extractor clean the bolt & it's holes with solvent then a Q-Tip with some of the cotton removed so it fits the holes tightly.
You'll never get the chance to clean in here again so get it spotless & never use any lube of any kind..
The extractors plunger won't move to the rear far enough untill the firing pin stop pin is removed or moved to the left.
You might as well clean the Firing pin channel + the pin & return spring & it's holder while your in there..
I took these pics while putting a Volquartzen Exact Edge Extractor in my MKII..
It was hard to hold the bolt, compress the plunger & pull the extractor out while having a hand to work the camera too.
Hope this helps someone out..

thanks - I will have to try that next time.
I also stumbled on using the bobby pin last week. It works better than the paper clip for removing the mainspring housing.

You will have to remove the bolt. the secret is to remove the cross pin that holds the firing pin in place. that way the extractor plunger will be able to move back far enough to replace extractor easier. Still a little tricky and you have to control that pesky spring.

You want to take it completely apart so you can clean it anyhow..
Plus once you know how it comes apart & goes back together you'll want to remove the firing pin & stop pin plus return spring & holder so you can clean it..
As you can tell from my pics the parts are spotless..
There's always Cat Hair on everything but I blow the parts off before assembly
Note last pic you can see it, I have three cats & one little Dauchund..

I now have three extra factory extractors in my stash..
I need to call Ruger & get a firing pin, return spring & the holder to put in my stash..
