I got a deal on a custom built heavy barreled .223 remington 700 that was too good to let pass. The gun has a few minor issues, and one of them is the extractor. The extractor is shaving brass off the rims when closing the bolt on a cartridge. This causes heavy closing, since the extractor has to be forced over the rim. Seems like theres not enough room for the extractor to flex away from the rims. I cleaned out the extractor recess, but this did not solve the problem. Changed the extractor for a new one, and the problem got worse.

So, I need to remove some metal... I am thinking to use a medium stone, and trim the extractor so it is able to flex away from the rim. But someone might have encountered problems like this before, and have other (better?) solutions?

The gun is a .17 remington that was converted by changing barrel, is that relevant? I always thought the .17 and the .223 shared the same bolt?

bolt face needs opening up a little.

Thanks! I'm guessing its the bottom of the extractor groove that needs opening?
