Frozen Extractor Pin on Double Action Pistol, Need Advice
Model 60 Smith. Threaded knurl extractor pin impossible to reasonably loosen. Soaked with appropriate oil-solvents. Don't want to bend or break or damaged exposed end. Extractor doesn't slide smoothly. Open to suggestions.
Success. Used soft jaws on the vise. Once the extractor was secure, having placed three empty brass in cylinder, turned the cylinder without any extra force and it loosened immediately. Appreciate the good directions.
