Default Sako Extractor on Rem700

So how many folks get this mod? I thought most on here would and have but in the last poll, many didn't know what it was. I myself think its 100 bucks well spent. I have it on most guns.

Really spits out the extracted shell. Nice popover. I find the extractor clip gets pieces of brass all in it. Might not harm anything, but not very professional looking

..... I just never have had any ejection problems with any of my 700's, stock or modified so I really never considered it needed.... I never really felt there was any serious damage to the brass.. JMO..

I think the main reason to do it is if your going from a standard bolt face to a magnum...

I have never had ejection probs per sa, but I liked the strong ejection the new one gave me, and then after having one on my sako's and brownings A-bolts, I decided they were much classier than the metal clip/plunger deal. Maybe 100 dollar not needed item, but I like em.

If it was only about need, then none of us here would have a rifle. I mean a rifle is severe overkill for hunting. I mean anyone, I mean any duffis could kill with a rifle. They even have blind folks out there killing with rifles. I kid you not.

And if its only about need, taxidermy is not a need. That would be silly.

Its never about need when it comes to rifles or handguns. Even if it was a need for a rifle, we would all be shooting cheapo savages and tikka's. Hense, the reason I kill 95% of my animals by stick and string.

Some like quality machining. Like I. Some like, you might like medeocre whatever. This is a guns page where we talk about "likes and wants". Not your needs.

You are right, this a forum and I stated my opinion! And trust me I have killed more than my fair share with a bow. If something has proven to work for years with out problems, I am not going to replace it just to do so, I will invest my money in things like reloading components or such. That is my opinion, you have yours I have mine.

That is provided there is something in front of you to kill, most of where I hunt, deer are either in bow range, or out of sight, so its not that much harder to kill a deer with a compound bow than a rifle. Ive always found gun hunting harder because i see way fewer deer in gun season, than in bow season. Now if I could rifle hunt the rut, and early season, that would be arguably, so easy "a duffis could" do it.

I totally agree though, that not needing something is a poor reason to not buy it. Its the same argument people make for banning certain weapons, as if there is some sorta magic efficiency level our equipment should be, before we voluntarily restrict ourselves. Makes no sense.

Maybe I need to clarify what I meant. If that little part on a Remington bothers you so much, Why buy a Remington that you are going to have to go spend another $100 to be happy with, just buy something besides the Remington that doesnt have that part on it, and put that $100 in your pocket.
