Detailed Description


For the ultimate 1911 extractor we have developed the Bullet Proof ® XS 1911 extractor-these “Extra Strong” extractors have a full thickness shank that resists tension loss over time better than other extractors and also reduces critical stress risers so breakage is virtually impossible.

Oversize in all critical dimensions, the Bullet Proof ® XS is guaranteed against failure for life-and it’s “Extra Smart” features sets new standards for extractor design.

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.

  • Fully Machined from S7 shockproof tool steel with a tensile strength of 275,000 PSI
  • Optimized hook design for maximum strength and case rim contact
  • Hook location tolerances held to +/- .001"
  • Radiused corners for extended life and smooth feeding
  • Full diameter rear shaft holds tension longer over factory parts many times over
  • Heat treated to optimum hardness and cryogenically treated
  • Guaranteed for life against breakage or we will replace at no cost to you

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 can not 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.

Perfect drop in!!
As soon as it showed up i dropped out my back plate and firing pin and swapped extractors and no fight nor struggle. Snug and smooth is as good as it can get literal drop in part.
Bulletproof Extractor for 1911a1
This extractor dropped right in to my Military ATI 1911a1. The casings extract perfectly.
Wilson Extractor Solved FTF Problems w/Remington R1 Enhanced
My new R1 Enhanced had feeding issues, from the get-go, even with 230 grain ball ammo. It wouldnt feed any Remington 230 grain defense hollow points, which hung up, just below the barrel, at the feed ramp. After a couple of days, on You Tube, and forums, I decided, rather than sending it back, to Remington which they recommended, I bought a Wilson extractor, added a slight bit, of tension, to it, installed it, and, no more FTF issues. When making a side-by-side visual comparison, the Wilson extractor has some chamfering, that is not on the stock extractor. I also had purchased two Wilson mags, for this pistol, as many folks had mentioned the stock mags, as part of the feeding problem; however, once I replaced the extractor, feeding issues disappeared, with both the Wilson mags, and the stock Remington mags. Thanks Wilson!
Got my ATI Titan up and running
As one of the many who had cycling/extracting issues with the ATI Titan 45, I replaced the guide rod and spring which, according to most everything you read on this 1911s issue, seems to be the cure. No dice. From out of the box, I didnt like the extractor, so Wilson Combat Bullet Proof to the rescue!! With very little fitting and a small tweak to the tension, I have no more failures. Thanks Wilson!
Rock Island Armory M1911 A1-FS
Does a better job at extracting the spent cases than the factory one. Im not sure if its on purpose but it sticks out the back of the slide a bit, I dont know if that means I have to file it down
