    My extractor rod collar froze solid in the extractor and when i tried to unscrew it to lube it the threads broke off in the extractor so I was wondering if anyone knows how to remove the extractor rod so I can see if i can remove the threads that broke off in the extractor. otherwise im goingto have to buy a whole new extractor assembly . thanks

    Remington and Smith & Wesson and I'm sure others made a *Model 10* ?

    You're more likely to get help if you are more specific with details.

    We can't see what you are talking about.

    Ok this is the extractor and pin. the extractor spring and sleeve go over the pin and screw into the extractor. it'd be too long i guess since i last lubed the threads on the extractor sleeve and it froze into the extractor and when I tried to unscrew the sleeve to lube the thread broke off in the extractor around the pin that goes into the extractor. now my question is it possible to remove the pin so I can possibly drill out the broken threads?

    LOL...despite being quite large, we still can't see what you are talking about. :p;)

    Did I miss it or have you still not mentioned the manufacturer of the piece.

    If you are not a machinist who's handy with metal working tools like drills, mills and EZ Outs, you might consider replacing the parts.
    However, there could be a creative way to solve the problem by using JB Weld, sealing wax, baling wire or duct tape.
    Numrich Arms (Gun Parts Corporation) may have what you need.
    Here is the page for the S&W model 10.

    If you get a new extractor they often have to be fitted to your particular gun. And keep in mind that the extractor contains the ratchet so it will effect the timing. You might be able to cut the pin off flush and then push it in far enough to use an EZ out. Or use a Dremel or a drill to get the broken piece out. Buying a new extractor should be your last resort. Good luck.
