A seller has one new in box of the older M90 model with hard to flip safety. The M95 of the current import have nice ambidextrous safety. But some say the older M90 has solid extractors while the new one s may have weak ones. Does anyone here have first hand experience of both models, which is preferable? thanks.

I had an M90 that I unfortunately had to let go this summer. :( It was a fantastic gun, and I regret selling it.

The safety was the only thing about it that wasn't great -- the small safety is hard to put to "safe," but can quite easily be swept off.

I'm planning on getting one of the M95s as my next purchase. The extended ambi safety is my biggest reason, with the dovetailed sights being another good reason.

I wouldn't be worried about the extractor -- FN did the same thing when they added the firing pin safety, and I've yet to have any problem with my FN or Browning MkIIIs.

I'd say if you can find an M95, go for it.

You might want to lay in a small supply of extractors and extractor spings anyway. Spare extractors are kinda like spare batteries for your flashlights. It doesn't hurt to have a couple of spares laying around.

After I rec'd my M95, I changed the recoil spring, extractor, and extractor spring. The recoil spring in the M95 seemed kinda weak compared to a FN, so I changed it. With typical Redneck logic, I figured if the recoil spring was kinda cheesy, maybe I ought to change the extractor and extractor spring as well.

Cylinder and Slide has their extractors made of good stuff and includes an extra power extractor spring with the extractor.

C&S extractors, while made of good stuff, seem to occasionaly be a little long. I put a new extractor and spring in a new Mk2 slide and it was long enough to contact the rear of the barrel face. I had to shorten the extractor a few .000.
