    Any ideas how to drill the holes in the front band for the pin?

    Pick which side you want to be front. Make sure the band fits all the way onto the stock. Measure the location of the hole in the stock. Mark the location of the hole onto the band from the same location you used to measure the hole.




    Hopefully Martin won't mind me stealing his pictures.

    I would measure off the front of the stock, and the top of the stock.

    Once you have one side drilled you can fit it to the stock AFTER deburring the inside of the hole to make sure it lined up. You CAN, if you are GENTLE, use the stock as a guide to drill the second hole. No side to side movement or the drill will try to dig into your band and stock.

    I would have popped the holes in for you, but I have seen the hole location vary so much I decided it was "better safe than sorry".

    That helps. Iíll measure from front back and then top of stock down. Iíll have to be careful with the drilling angle.

    Front Band installed...

    Bit of measuring, bit of drilling, bit of filing, and you get:

Typically I can get 90% of mauser extractors on without it... occasionally they are stubborn.

    If it works, I would leave it. Its original. It works. Do I need to say more

    I'm running a batch of Mexican Mauser extractors after I get done with this batch of DSM safeties. If I can get the prints (if he has them) from Mr. Simpson, I will see about run a batch.
    Were you ever able to get the DSM extractor prints?

    Unfortunately, no. I am hoping to get the prints that Mr. Simpson has, but last we talked he was busy and I wasn't able to press the issue.

    Fair enough. Thank you for the update!
