    How tough/expensive is it to fix one? One of my gun is suffering from a small bend in the extractor rod. :wtc:

    Might help if you tell us what kind of gun it is.

    glock 26. i believe it happened after I bought it. Didn't buy it from the factory/shop. I think I caused it, but I'm not sure how. I had some failure to feed issues today at the range. After breaking it down with the armorer, he and I are in concurrence that it's slightly bent inward. He's not a glock armorer, so he can't/won't fix it.

    shouldn't be that much of a pain to fix. I would have a certified Glock armorer do it though just to make sure it's done correctly, especially if it's your duty weapon. I have replaced a few on other weapons and it was about 30 minutes of time and about a 20 dollar part.

    We don't issue glocks, so they didn't feel the need to send him to the school. Stupid I say, since many of us carry glocks off duty. I'll have to research this stuff.

    shut up. I've seen bent extractors on all makes of guns, they are a vulnerable piece of metal.

    It's a very very very easy fix.

    Buy a new extractor and swap it. Should take 5 minutes at the most.
    Just watch out when you release and push the back plate off. There is a plunger under there that will pop out.

    No offense, but it shouldn't be your departments job to take care of your personal equipment. :o

    It isn't, but since they are the specialists, they do, if they are certified in it.

    looking at the part, it isn't the extractor. It's part of the trigger assembly. not sure what the technical name is. I'm taking it to my gunsmith tomorrow to look at.

    You may want to consider taking the Glock Armorer Course yourself. That way not only will you know the ins and outs of your weapons, but can handle others weapons as well. (good way to ask for a raise too) :)

    do have to come down here to take it, or are there places nationally where you can do it? i know that the armorer's course in the smyrna plant is open only to FFL's or their employees, and i suppose to LE agency armorers. meaning, it might be tougher for an LEO to just come down and take it by himself.

    FWIW, the Glock 26 ejector has a slight bend to the center from the factory. the 27 ejector is straight

    hmmm. Interesting. I think that's it then. Maybe my mag is getting old. I'll put a new one in and see if it helps.

    Thanks mang :coold:

    A failure to feed is almost always mag related. Try several to rule that out as an issue.

    Check out www.LoneWolfDist.com

    They have the part you are looking for. Also check out the "Complete Glock Reference Guide" in their books section. It will show you how to disassemble and reassemble your glock. The book is a great reference for any Glock owner.

    The extractor depressor plunger is an easy part to replace, just be careful taking off the slide cover plate. Use a punch to release the tension on the firing pin and the plate should slide right off. Do not pry the plate off!!!

    You're a cop and can't perform basic weapon maintenance? I'd hate to have you covering my six in a firefight.

    My ignorance is amazing? So in actuallity you would want someone that has no idea how his weapon works or even has the slightest idea how to break it down carrying a weapon next to you with intent to use it? Yes my ignorance amazes me. It's because of cops like this their are people like me defending this country.
