Steve in Allentown PA Posted January 2, 2012 Share Posted January 2, 2012 Season's greetings from an old 1911 guy who got a brand new 625-8 under the Christmas tree. I've been an avid student of the revolver forum here as I try to learn as much as I can as fast as possible since I want to be as familiar with this round gun as I am with my bottom feeders. I have a handful of moonclips from Dave Heath, have determined that the factory trigger pull is just awful, and that the chambers need to be camfered immediately. I have a neophyte question about how to remove the extractor rod. Everyone's favorite hobby shop, Brownells, sells an extractor rod removal tool <brownells.com/.aspx/pid=26886/psize=48/Product/EXTRACTOR-ROD-TOOL>. My assusmption is that all I need to do is tighten this thing on the extractor rod at some point along its length and then just rotate it to unscrew the rod. Once it's unscrewed the extractor star will come off and I can set about to camfer the chambers. Reassembly is simply the reverse but with a dab of blue locktite on the threads. Did I get it right? Do I need any other tools to accomplish the disassembly/assembly procedure? Last neophyte question for the day. The 45 degree camfer cutters run about $100 for the cutter, handle, and pilot. A little too rich for my blood. Brownells has a deburring tool that looks like it might suffice for $40 <brownells.com/.aspx/pid=678/psize=48/Product/REVOLVER-DEBURRING-TOOL-CUTTERS>. Any opinions on whether I'd be wasting my money on the $40 item? Should I simply try to find a 'smith who isn't backlogged and who will do the camfering for less money than the cost of the tool?
