Phoenix Arms HP22 Extractor Repair

Postby OpenNRG » Fri May 25, 2012 6:47 pm

I posted a How-To video on YouTube about repairing the HP22 extractor. So why not just buy a new extractor? The stock extractor on mine came with a very sharp, thin point with a curve to it. I expect these may be ground and they may differ somewhat. This may be one of the reasons some people have great success with these guns and some have failures from the beginning. I knew before I even fired the gun the extractor was going to fail. The very tip was just too thin. So, when you re-shape it yourself you can get a bit of a radius on the end to provide a thicker contact area.

Have fired another couple hundred rounds since I posted the video. Working 100%. Before I did this my casing extracted about 6' now they are extracting about 10'. I guess that's a good thing. Anyway. It has worked and may solve some issues some are having.

I like this gun. Now that it's back to 100% I carry it as my shop gun again, cut grass, etc. I run a small CNC Metal and Wood shop.

Also have plans for the sights and hope to get the mags up to 12 rounds. 11 is easy. 12 requires milling out the base which I have done and it works. Just haven't had time to do a lot of testing with it. Both of these should be a DIY'er after I work out the details.

So.. Did you reshape the existing extractor or .. since you have a machine shop.. make a whole new one?

What he said. Welcome, and thanks for a very seriously in-depth post. The HPs are wonderful little guns, but some tune-up is justified.

Never had to adjust either of mine but hey, sometimes problem guns go out. It is good to have the information on hand and an idea what to look for if you're having extraction issues.

Thanks for that info! I watched the video, and the first thing is, great grips! They look good on your pistol. Got any photos showing them on a black/blue gun? I followed the link to your website, and would ask you to consider letting admin make your extractor pdf a sticky over here.

Thanks again, and welcome to the forum.

bitsman - I re-shaped the original.

Kiln - I prefer to think of it as a minor issue. I have to modify / tune a lot of my tools. I'm going to order some new extractors and see how they look. Mine was just too sharp.

lost californian - Haven't gotten a blue / black gun yet. I don't mind if they make the PDF a sticky. I expect a lot of people have this problem (issue) and I'd like to see the guns reputation improve.

Yeah I don't mind doing a little work to get one running either. Just part of the fun for me.

OpenNRG - I watched your video and looked at your web site. Excellent job on the video. And your wood grips look great. Would you consider making a set of rosewood grips for a JA-380? I can easily send you a set of OEM plastic grips as a template.

getvicious - I may do a set for the JA-380 in the future. I would buy the gun if I do. Really need it in house. Right now and for the near future my hands are full. Have other products we make and others coming out soon.

High on my list is improving the HP22 sights. Know what I want, just finding the time to do it.
