Hi fellas,This is my first attempt to modify a .310 extractor, for rimless function. Hope you like.

That is very clever. It is much simpler and just as functional as the one Snapp's gun shop used to make.

Jim Wassmundt use to make one on the very same principal. I had it on a .221 fireball. Worked pretty good on light and moderate loads.

Thanks Joeblack, Bill K & Glyn9
If you look at the last section of the vid, you will see that I left the rear portion of the extractor tongue ( the bit that the breach block hits ) and it's this remaining metal that is the cam. It is shaped to match the frame and has a 45deg bevel, to match the bevel on the inside of the frame. It is only in the last few degrees of movement, that the extractor unit is forced to the right, thus clearing the rim of the extracted case. Hope this helps, if not, I will post a pic of the extractor out of the frame.

Cheers,
Tony

That is an outstanding piece of work.  As a mechanical designer I can attest to the brilliance of your design,  Would you be willing to modify a spare extractor I have, I would be delighted to be able to fire .222 brass in my .222R...
