removing the second extractor

I'm looking for instructions on diassembling the 10/22 magnum bolt, and especially on removing the second extractor. I just got my VQ extractor, so I thought I'd take everything apart and clean it too.

Don't have complete dissassembly instructions for you, but removing the extractor is easy. Get a thin tipped #2 screwdriver or a icepick, push the plunger down into the bolt housing, then pull the extractor out of the side. Pretty easy once you get the trick of it down.

I, for one, don't know why you want to remove the second extractor. It does serve a useful function, and to remove it is to say that Ruger didn't know what they were doing when they added it. I know this goes against popular opinion but, were it me, I'd leave it alone. My 10/22 Mag works perfectly with it in place and, as I said, it does serve a useful function. I use a VQ extractor on the open side, the Ruger one on the off side. That's what I think is right, but by all means, go with what YOU think is right.

Some aftermarket barrels don't offer the second slot for the second extractor.
