    My Higgins Mod. 88 cylinder star does not retract, after extracting spent shells, like my High Standard Sentinel deluxe does. Is this normal ?:)

    I don't know that particular gun, but if this parts drawing is any indicator perhaps the cylinder extractor return spring is broken or missing.

    Does the extractor move smoothly in and out?

    My Model 88 is the basic model and did not have an ejector return spring. Later models did. The ejector does move forward and backward smoothly. Apparently, all is as it was originally intended to be. Thanks for your input.
