When it comes to 1911 reliability, the extractor is the most important component part of your 1911 handgun. A well-designed, properly tuned extractor ensures that your pistol feeds, extracts and ejects reliably every time.
All Wilson Combat Bullet Proof ® Extractors are machined from solid bar stock alloy steel and then specially heat treated for long lasting tension and toughness to resist chipping or breakage.
Wilson Bullet Proof ® extractors are the choice of professional gunsmiths and will hold tension longer and resist damage better than any other extractor on the market.
All of our 1911 extractors require minimal fitting for proper function and often will drop in some guns with only final tensioning required. Used in conjunction with a Wilson Combat firing pin stop you can optimize extractor function for any 1911 pistol.
About S7 Tool Steel:
A Wilson exclusive, S7 is a shock resistant “non stainless” tool steel with excellent toughness and high strength, along with good wear resistance. It has maximum shock resistance and high compression strength, which gives it good deformation resistance in use, while retaining good toughness to resist chipping and breaking. Typical applications for S7 tool steel are punches, chisels, blanking dies, forming dies and concrete breakers.
Series 70 vs Series 80 1911 Extractors:
The difference between Series 70 and Series 80 extractors is a plunger retainer stud machined into the Series 80 extractor. This retainer stud holds the firing pin safety plunger that is visible next to the disconnector rail in place on Colt-style Series 80 slides. All extractors which are designed to work in a Series 80 1911 will also work in all Series 70 guns, however extractors designed for Series 70 guns lack the machined cut which allows the firing pin lock plunger to be installed and therefore cannot be used in Series 80 guns. Kimber series II guns can use either a 70 series or 80 series. All Springfield Armory 1911 pistols are 70 series.

|I’ve used these as well as the stainless version in both series 70 and 80. If you are having feeding or ejection problems, try one. This is an excellent part and I have not had any issues. Most of the time it is drop in with only a little tension adjustment required.|

|The stock extractor in my Fusion 1911 wouldnt reliably work. I put the WC Bulletproof extractor in and it ran flawlessly. Even after I tweaked the factory extractor, it wouldnt run correctly. After giving the factory part a second chance, I have tossed it and would only use a WC extractor from now on.|

|Installed in my metro arms commander solved ejection problems work better than when new, always quality parts from wilsons!|
|Just what I needed||4/25/2016|
|I have a 4 SA 1911, it ran ok but always ejected a bit erratic due to extractor clocking, a new FPS fixed that, but ejection became extremely unreliable, adjusting the extractor would only work for about 5 rnds before it lost tension. Which lead me to purchase this Wilson, minor tweak to the tension and its been running flawless for 500 rnds.|
