I knew you weren't 'worried' about it, but the subject seriously annoys me when it comes up on other sites. REALLY... What is the @#$%^&* harm in resurrecting an old thread? NOW... Should the 'resurrector' not pay attention to the dates of the latest posts AND make an "issue" of something, it's appropriate to let that person know that the thread is 'old'.

I wrestled with the idea of completing the extractor, but I REALLY don't think I'm going to put THAT liner back in THAT shotgun. It was too brutal, even at relatively mild (.338 Win Mag) recoil values. I'm going to put that liner in another shotgun barrel. Doing so MAY require that I make a new butt for that new firearm too, as shotgun butts just aren't 'user friendly' in the context of "getting down" on the rifle when you have to aim with open sights.

At any rate, that project is on the back burner for the time being.

Be nicer than necessary.
