Default Firestar M40 extractor fixed ** Woot **

I just received my Firestar chambered in .40 cal back for Taylor Machine in Washington. I received this out of production gun as a gift, took it to the range twice and started experiencing FTF and FTE issues.

As it turns out the tip of the extractor broke off - a common problem with these guns. After spending countless hours looking for spare parts which are virtually non-existent - I came across a vague post from two years ago mentioning Taylor Machine and owner John Taylor. He machined a new extractor and installed it for me. Price was a little under $100.00. He even test fired a few rounds through it.

I will be taking her to the range tonight for a test run.

Very fast turn around a very friendly to talk with.

Here is the link to his website
