    I have installed extractors on Mauser style bolts before with no problem However, I am having difficulty re-installing the extractor on my CS 550 bolt: I cannot compress the split extractor ring "ears" enough in order to slide on the extractor. Suggestions/help please.

    I would appreciate it if a Moderator would do that.

    I ended up taking the bolt to my favorite gun shop/gun smith -- he had the tool and re-installed the extractor in 2 minutes -- no charge! I ordered the tool from Midway anyway.

    Yeah, on some of those Mauser bolts, the 'tool' is a must have!

    Thats nice of him to not charge you. Good way for him to get a repeat customer too. I'm sure your loyalty is worth the $2.00 in labor!
