View Full Version : 92 to 96 Extractor Modification.

While cleaning up a 92 bolt I noticed the way the extractor pin was dovetailed in the original (pinless) 92 extractor. Workmanship looks like Springfield work. I guess if Springfield modfied the bolt sleeves and stocks they could have done the extractors also?
Just thought it was an interesting item the forum had not mentioned before.
So THAT's the answer! I've had an extractor in the junk box for 30+ years with a dovetail cut across the top. Never paid any attention to the fact that it is right at the location of the pin. I assumed the normally integral pin lug had been removed for some obscure reason, but your suggestion seems much more likely. Anyone else have/seen one?
Ain't that a humdinger. '92 bolt you say. In an 1892 rifle? Altered? Bayonet band split? '96 stock?

Bolt came in s/n 20544 that had been alterd to a 92/96. Rifle had several numbered parts (loading gate #1235, bolt sleeve #221). Plus other 92 parts, striker, sideplate, thin wrist 92 stock with a 3/8" filler in the ram rod cut. Extractor is still attached to the bolt sleeve with a screw. Cocking piece is beveled at the lug. Trigger/sear is marked with an "A"
Bad part, rifle had the fore end cut off at the barrel band and the barrel cut to 24", no hand guard, M1892 rear sight..
I just don't see anyone outside of the government spending the time and effort to make that modification. The surplus dealers would likely have just sold it without a pin or replaced the extractor.
Interesting that so many '92 parts are on that gun. Unusual.
Sometimes you have to wonder if it was 'make work' or just being 'New England thrifty'.
