I have a small faced 700 bolt here that has an extractor that seems to be stuck and not allowing the brass up to the bolt face. How does one get the extractor out to clean/deburr/whatever it needs to get it to move again?

Thanks

If you are talking about..

the plunger type ejector, there is a small pin about a 1\2"
back on the bolt body that can be driven out with a small
punch, that will let the plunger to come out of the bolt.
Take care not to let the spring behind the plunger to fly out
and get lost, you should be able to clean the hole, or see
what's binding from there. I some times cut a coil or two
off the spring to let the fired case not fly out so far from where you are shooting or off the bench.

Sorry but I'm talking about the half-moon clip extractor that clips in the groove at the base of the brass to remove it from the chamber.

It just "pops in" under a lip on the bolt face.... remove the ejector and use a small needle sharp dental tool to push it out of the recess and it'll pop right out.

If it's an older model 700, it may be a riveted extractor. You'll need to remove the rivet to get the extractor out.
I don't see any rivots Jim but they would have to be very small and ground down on the inside I would assume. What would indicate there is a rivot and then how would I remove it? Would there be a hole on the outside of the bolt to punch it out?

thanks all

Yup.....there should be a barely-visible spot near one end of the extractor, on the outside of the bolt. It is polished-smooth, so you have to look carefully. I assume it is in a tapered hole. You may have to drill the first tiny bit, and then drive it out. The riveted extractor was phased out in '83. It was used from '62 to phase out. The rivet is near the end of the extractor that is closest to the ejector.

Got it Jim. Wasn't the rivot kind.

Now All I have to do is call Brownells

Thanks again
