Volquartsen Remington 870/1100 Exact Edge Extractor Review
After long tests, I can tell you that Volquartsen Remington 870/1100 Exact Edge Extractor is a very good alternative to Remington 870 non-MIM extractor.
A big reason why this extractor is the preferred one amongst Remington 870/1100 owners is because electrical discharge machining was used to create the extractor rather than the inferior metal injection modeling. Electrical discharge machining, or EDM, creates solid A2 tool steel extractors which greatly reduce the chances of having any extraction problems after firing the weapon. Metal injection modeling, or MIM, is an older process in creating extractors which have been known to cause extraction problems in Remington shotguns after using them for a very short period. The Exact Edge Extractor also has polished edges which assist in the extraction process as well. If you were to compare the edges of the EDM and MIM processed extractors then you would definitely see the difference in quality and design.
If you have an existing Remington 870 with an MIM processed extractor then it is easy to replace it with the EDM processed Exact Edge Extractor. Just check to make sure your existing extractor is MIM-extractor because this is the specific part that the Exact Edge Extractor was made to replace in a standard Remington 870.
It works as good as non-MIM extractor and way better than standard MIM extractor. Standard MIM extractor often causes fail to extract problem. Replacing MIM extractor with Non-MIM extractor often solves this problem.
Volquartsen Remington 870/1100 Exact Edge Extractor is priced little higher (about $23.99) than non-MIM extractor ($17.99) but it’s well worth the price.
It looks rock-solid and going to withstand a hard use and thousands of rounsd. All edges of the Volquartsen extractor are polished for smooth work.
According to the manufacturer, the Volquartsen Exact Edge Extractor is hardened enough to endure years of consistent use without showing signs of wear. It is primarily made for the Remington 870 but it is also compatible with the Remington 1100 as well. The extractor retails for $24. This is a very affordable investment you can make to maintain the quality of your Remington 870’s performance. If you are someone who usually fires a lot of rounds of ammunition then having the Exact Edge Extractor will be essential for you. This includes people who are hunters or simply like to go target shooting with their Remington 870. But even if you just have your shotgun just for protection, the $24 investment into an extractor will ensure you can fire your rounds quickly when facing a critical moment that calls for it.
