Siamese Extractor

Recommended Posts

.....not sure if this is the right place for this, but I have a sporterized Siamese Mauser in 7.52x54R and had a case rupture which shattered the extractor......the big question is .......does anyone know where I can get a replacement extractor.......they seem to be the original unobtainium :angry:

I have a perfectly good rifle that I can't use !!!

gun parts corp has them in stock part number #8500. From looking at the extractor collar are sure that a standard 98 LR extractor will not work?

 

I am assuming when you say your rifle uses 7.62 x 54R you mean the gun uses the Rusiian cartridge. I am concerned about the case rupture.

 

Do you know why the case ruptured?

 

Was it old ammo possible damaged ammo. bad brass?

 

If the rifle was mine i would check to see if a standard 98 LR extractor would fit the bolt. If it does fit, please remember the extractor will have to be modified for the Russian ammo

i didn't catch that in the original post. I think Brokengun's comment about the caliber should be looked into. Best I recall Siamese Mausers were all 8MM or larger. I suggest the OP at least do some research or better yet a chamber cast to determine the correct cartridge. I know years ago the Siamese as well as other Mausers often changed calibers when re barreled in the sporterizing. Might or might not be the reason for the rupture.

.....yes, its the russian 7.62x54R cartridge, I rebarrelled an action I bought with a british SMLE barrel ( same bore/calibre as the Russian ) and modified everything to suit. The rupture was caused by poor quality, steel cased, factory sporting ammunition. Standard 98 extractors are different, the Siamese were made in Japan.

Thanks for the info, I'll try the above places and see if they have any extractors.
