Hello.
New member here
Hopefully I am posting in the correct section.

After being passed around in the family for a bit I inherited my late uncles M700 in .375 RUM.
I discovered that somehow the extractor was broken off the bolt. I was hoping to find a replacement but can not seem to find anything anywhere.
I had the rifle at my local smith for several months and they said they found an extractor but no rivets. I understand parts are hard to find after the bankruptcy, but I figured I would take a stab in the dark and see if anyone my be able to point me in a good direction.
for now I am making due with popping the spent case out with a rod.

I plan on keeping the rifle in the family especially because I have a lot of ammo and reloading equipment for it.

Thank for any advice

Clay

Have you tried calling Remington? I'd think someone somewhere would have a replacement. Also, a decent machine shop may be able to hook you up.
Yes, but I have not received a response.
Ill try calling and see if I can get ahold of a liver person.

I think Ill see if I can get one of the extractors from the smith and find a shop like you suggested.

Thanks

Pacific Tool and Gage has extractors. They do not have rivets. Unfortunately, the riveted extractor is old production and RemArms is not currently using the design. I doubt that they will be of any help. You have a couple of options. You can have the bolt modified and have either a M16 or Sako style extractor installed. There are kits available and some gunsmiths that do this work.

Another option is to join Shooters Forum and post this question. There is a member there that is an expert gunsmith that may be able to help.
