Hey Keven; That was the only flaw to that model, I don't know how to take out the exstractor but I do know how to keep it from happening to it again, They did not leave enough head space for the exstractor when the bolt is fully locked down and it would leave alot of pressure on the exstractor, and they would break, it happend to mine as a kid two time before I figured out what was going on, there is information on the internet about the problem just google Remington 514 for your key word and you will find plenty, I personally just took a small gun file and made the little spot where the exstractor rest when the bolt is fully locked down a little deeper, it takes a little time to do with such a small work space but you can get to it. Hope this helps.I have been given a Remington 514 single shot bolt action that has a busted extractor on the bolt. I do work on guns on a regular basis but just can't figure out how to remove the extractor to replace it. Does anyone know what the trick is to get it out?
Hey Keven; Me again, Could not get your question out of my mind, so I started looking around the net myself, I found one artical out of the whole internet, you would think there would be more, anywho, it said there is a small plunger at the back of the bolt that you have to push in with a small screwdriver, and keep it depressed while you lift/pry on the exstractor claw and it should come out, I'm guessing it goes back in the same way, good luck, word of warning the claw and spring along with the plunger may come flying out, so make sure you do this somewhere it will be easy to find any small parts that go flying off of your gun, Let me know how this comes out!I have been given a Remington 514 single shot bolt action that has a busted extractor on the bolt.
