.22 Classic Extractor Mod (pic heavy)



Log in to see fewer ads
Ok.. Nobody seemed to have photos of the procedure, so tonight I did the mod to my other Classic and took lots of pics..

Ok, here's what a chamber with no chip looks like.. Very faint polish to the one area where the extractor was hitting the barrel.




First, remove magazine and insure that the rifle is unloaded.. Then remove both screws that retain the action and trigger guard. The longer screw goes towards the butt, smaller towards the front grip.



When out..



Now, lift the barrel and action straight up from the stock.

part 2

Now, you need to remove 4 small screws, two on each side, as follows..




And remove the same ones on the other side.. These are held with Loctite and may be difficult to remove. Use a proper fitting screw driver.



Lift the action cassette away from the receiver, and set aside.. You may want to clean this of powder residue while it's out..

Now, look at the bolt where the extractor's making contact. This is what we need to eliminate.



We'll need to remove the extractor, which is held in place with this one simple pin..




Push the pin out with a small screw driver.. It only goes one way, and it's not held in with anything.. It will drift out with very little pressure..

The pin partially removed.



The pin, out of the bolt..

part 3

Now we need to take the extractor from the bolt.. Just lift it out of the slot.



Now, you need to remove metal from the tip of the extractor so that it won't make contact to the chamber when the bolt's forward.. Grind or file a bit off, put the extractor back in the bolt, and put the bolt back in the receiver to test for contact.. If it's still making contact, pull it back out (takes seconds) and take a bit more off.. Remember, you can't put metal back on when you take it off, so take your time..

When it's not making contact anymore..





Once everything is good, put your bolt back in after cleaning everything, and lubing..

Grab the cassette and before installing the 4 little screws, put some Loctite 242 or medium thread loc on them to keep them from backing out while in use.



Tighten them down, and reinstall the action back into the gun. Don't put loctite on the action screws.. Just remember which goes to the front and back, and tighten down..

Once back together, run a couple of mags through the gun to verify operation.

And enjoy that T/C .22 Classic for years to come!!!

Not a problem..

It's easy to do, and put it this way.. It took less time to do the mod to the gun, than it did to make the post.. It's very simple to do, and I just hope that others don't get rid of an extremely well made .22 because it might chip in the future.. Just tear it down and fix it..

As I mentioned on another post here, T/C really screwed up with this part. It's just a stamped part and if they had shortened up the tip on the stamp, before production, the guns wouldn't have ever chipped in the first place..

All the extractor tip needs is (on the two that I've done) about .025" removed.. Less than a 1/32nd of an inch to get clearance and eliminate chipping..

Thanks!!
I finally ponied up for a DSLR last year, and on top of a normal lens I HAD to have a nice Macro for those close up photos.. While flower and bugs are fun, it's nice to get detailed pics of gun parts, too.. I use the 40mm Macro about half the time I have the camera on..

I don't know how to answer that, but I've read a bunch of reports from guys who dressed up the chip with a diamond file and accuracy didn't seem to be effected..

As I mentioned, I bought 3 of them last week.. (**** you Gunbroker) and one of them has a chip.. I plan on shooting it to see how it works, but I'm not putting a scope on it..

I also plan on finding out what I can trade it for from T/C S&W..

Paper,
You make it look so easy. Makes me wonder why T/C won't do it . . .

Or even better, they could have made the extractor so it wouldn't contact the barrel in the first place??

But yeah, it's easy and I've checked both rifles and they feed and extract perfectly, slow fire and as fast as I can pull the trigger!!

Pat yourself on the back for a job well done! Only thing I would add is not to over torque the action screws upon reassembly. I faintly recall the setting but would rather not share something wrong than if I were right.
