IAC Left Extractor Pin Removal
« on: September 20, 2015, 04:40:22 PM »

Hi All . . . .

I have a problem for some of you machinists/smiths.

A few months ago I ordered a new IAC 97 scattergun. It was a great gun right out of the box. As a matter of fact I used it so much over the past couple of months that I now find the left extractor now needs replacement.

I was told informed that the left extractor for the Winchester 97 was a duplicate replacement for the IAC 97. That was easy to order.

A couple of weeks ago I replaced the left extractor on my Winchester. The extractor pin was easy to move down its channel for extractor replacement.

I am now attempting to replace the left extractor on the IAC 97 but am having a dickens of a time removing the pin. No matter how hard I thump on the pin it will NOT budge. I even built a jig out of maple to hold the bolt so it would not move when I was thumping on the pin. That little pin could have been welded in by some happy go lucky Chinese fella at the plant for all I know. It doesn't look like it but it sure seems that way !!

Now I am at a loss. Is my only option left to drill out the pin and hope I can find a replacement pin (where)??  If I drill out the pin would a 1/16" carbide bit do the trick so the pin could be driven out or does the bit need to be bigger?

Any help anyone could offer would be greatly appreciated.
