Remington 870 Non-MIM (Machined) Extractor

Machined extractor is one of the must-have upgrades for your Remington 870. It insures reliable extraction of fired shells. Police version of the Remington 870 utilizes non-MIM extractor too because it is more reliable.

If your Remington 870 has problems with extraction – changing extractor is the first procedure you need to do. This upgrade is not for looks it is for reliability. Better non-MIM extractor costs just $14.99 but improves your shotgun dramatically.

Non-MIM extractor is my first recommendation to Remington 870 owners which starts upgrading their shotguns. Most shooters spend hundreds of dollars on tacticool upgrades but rarely upgrade inner parts. This is one of the cheapest but the most important upgrades you can make to Remington 870 shotgun

Non-MIM, solid steel extractor is better than MIM extractor. Solid steel is more wearproof than stamped metal. When extractor hook begins to round off, you can have problems with extraction of fired shells.

    Why is it that when asked if the Brownells extractor is better than the original extractor by Remington; the Brownells staff reviewer says their extractor is no better than Remington’s original extractor?

    The very last question and response:
