I have a new extractor for a Military Citation. The old one just broke. How do I install it? Thanks.

I can't seem to depress the spring enough to get the extractor into its spot.

Broken Extractor

Make sure you remove the small broken part of the extractor that is usually captured in the extractor slot. You should then be able to insert the new extractor!

I can't tell if there a piece of the old extractor stuck in there, but the plunger won't depress much and it won't SL de out either.

Extractor

Get the plunger and spring completely out of the hole in the slide. The round hole that the extractor tail drops into should be round and has depth below the slot that the extractor body is in. After all that is cleared out, take a 3/32" drill and work it into the spring and plunger hole by hand. It should move and twist freely. Now try the factory specification Spring and Plunger again. You might have to fit the tail of the extractor so that the flat on the plunger will slide into the proper position.- Alan Aronstein

I finally got that bit of broken extractor out after considerable trouble. Did that thing with the drill bit. Seems to be okay now. Only shooting will tell for sure. Thank you all very much.
