Having the darndest time getting the extractor out.

It looks like all I have to do is push it out but after moving less then a few millimeters it wont budge. I'm kinda afraid to take a punch to it and wack the extractor out. Am I missing a step here in disassembling the bolt?

It is possible to disassemble/reassemble by hand, but trust me, you are much better off buying a bolt tool. If you can manage to push in the ejector and also push in the extractor plunger while taking the third hand you forgot that you had to push out the extractor while not shooting parts all over the room, you have the easy part done. Putting it back together is a lot more difficult.

You can get the bolt tool HERE. (http://www.e-gunparts.com/DisplayAd.asp?chrProductSKU=283970&chrSuperSKU=&MC=)
