I decided to clean-out extractor after over 2k rounds on my Shadow 2 OR. While tapping pin back in, it rolled off table and into the dirt it went, Lost. I had a spare (BenStoegerProShop).
My thought was, spare is too long, but wasn't sure, as I installed pin; yes, too long as it would not seat flush with bottom of slide. I ordered 4 more extractor pins from Ben, & sure enough, these looked too long! Well, I figured I'll get out my back-up unfired Shadow2, and pull the pin. Pin measured .334; spare pin: .518, BIG DIFFERENCE! What are the odds that the part no. is correct, but the wrong pins are in the packaging? I'd bet on that I shouldn't need to cut the pin to the proper length of .334 inches. For now, I used the pin from my back-up Shadow2, but what's the solution? do parts get miss-packaged? Has this happened to anyone with Shadow 2 OR?
I will call Ben's shop today and hear what they have to say..
