    Very good writeup and explanation! One thing often overlooked is the use of a cell phone camera. I've used one to take apart things step-by-step and then I've forgotten I had a cell phone camera and took things apart and had a heck of a time figuring out how to put things back together. Some day I'll learn but by then it'll probably be too late...

    Great post, thanks.
    I recently opened up a couple of revolvers for clean/lube.
    My biggest problem was picking the oil. I wanted oil of good quality that will neither gum up or dry.
    I ended up using Slip2000 EWL30.
    Next time I open them up again, years from now, I'll know if I made the right choice.

    Factory already tightened it once. If you send it back it'll just do it again. Extractor rods backing out are just what they do on guns that actually get shot. Clean it in acetone and put some blue loc-tite on it. Fixed...

    I don't know Gary, you're a smart guy and all, but if it was me gonna send it back, I'd maybe send it back to S&W.

    If the fix is simple, it would cost less than the overnight shipping back to the manufacturer.
