Grayguns began research and development on an ultra-high-durability replacement after our team saw a rash of unfortunate failures of MIM extractors (particularly in P220C pistols) in 2010. Original manufacture parts improved, but we still see occasional failures across model lines. Grayguns now offers a precision short external extractor upgrade made from a special high-strength, super shock resistant tool steel, hardened and drawn to RC53. These are available from Grayguns as a direct, drop-in replacement.
We re-engineered these little beauties to provide a bit less standoff and optimize proper feeding, and we tightened up tolerances for perfect consistency. Grayguns staff members – including Bruce Gray – personally deburr, polish, dress and sharpen each extractor.
