    I called Glock and gave them the serial number of my recent purchase of a used G22.

    They told me that it had a update of a "new and improved" extractor, and that I could send it to them to have it done at no charge.

    My G22 seems to work fine with its current "old" extractor, so is it worth sending it to Glock to have the extractor updated?

    Has anyone ever had problems with an early production G22's extractor?

    :confused: :confused: :confused:

    Thanks...

    I'd go ahead and get it done. Gun companies don't upgrade parts for just any reason... especially offering it done for free.

    I'd have them do something else to the gun too, while it is there.
    If you have to send it it - might as well get two birds with one stone.

    I'd order the part from TopGlock or Glockmeister and install it myself. It's incredibly simple. It will cost you a few dollars, but I don't like going without any of my guns for extended periods of time.

    Midnight, I'd suspect they are just talking about the 90 to 15 degree extractor ugrade. Can't do that at home unless your really good at milling and refinishing your slide of course ;)

    I have never sent any of my Glocks in for repairs or upgrades, but have heard from others that when you do send them in, they not only do the upgrades, but go completely through the pistol and change out any worn parts, and refinish the slide, also. The only negatives are the cost for shipping (~$25-30) and being with out it for a few weeks.

    I had a well-worn early model 21 that I sent in for that upgrade and it came back looking just like new.

    Good deal for the price ($18 shipping it to them), in my opinion. :D

    Why don't you ask them to ship you the parts so you can do it yourself and save $25-30 shipping?

    If you just send them the top half (slide), it is not considered a gun and it would only cost a few bucks.

    firestar,

    While I own a bench-top mill, most Glock owners do not.

    So, asking Glock to send them a new extractor, plus a carbide end mill, and re-finishing kit, to alter the breech face and re-finish the slide might be a bit untenable.

    :rolleyes:

    The G21 is the only model that Glock will do the 15 degree ejection port cut on for free. On the G22 they just change the extractor (5 degree taper at bottom) and ejector (longer). And no, they won't send you the parts unless you are a certified Glock armorer.
