SAKO extractor for Remington:

I read in one of my Sniper books that it would be a good idea to have my extracor in my 700pss changed to the Sako style any ideas? Thank you for your time

Craig - Is your Remington extractor fouling up on you or are you just bored? Been shooting and teaching with Remington 700's for 18 years and haven't broken a Remington extractor yet or had one fail that didn't have a problem caused by operator headspace (dirty chamber). Don't fall prey to the old "The guns shooting good, I'm bored and my gunsmith needs a new pair of shoes" syndrome. Use the money to buy more ammo or send contributions to The Gooch Fund, C/O Storm Mountain Training Center, Elk Garden WV.

Craig: SAKO extractor in 700 action. Do not do this. It is a waste of time. The Remington will do just fine. This is one of those cases of fixing something that ain't realy broke.
