Not chromed it was in the white and yes it is a WWI extractor and very correct for a 1917 Westinghouse build. Nice score!

Most of the WWI internals were in the white or blued and WWII stuff was parkerized it is hard to find these in that condition as so many went in the lend lease program so they are tougher to find in the white. Really should go in an early water cooled gun to do it justice fwiw.

I see. Interesting. Well I ordered an extra set of 28' internals and extra 28' top covers several months ago and what I got was the 28' bolt with the Westinghouse extractor, and a 17a1 nos top cover. I guess the person putting the orders together didn't know what they were looking at. Lucky me I suppose.

That is how it starts brother :tongue: now you have what we call a seed part so you have to do a water cooled 1917 or 1917A1

Exactly. I have so many parts from different guns I intend to build. Only problem is time, money and patience. This is why it's looking like I'll be at the creek on Friday this year.

To all that have pm'd me about this extractor, it is not for sale. Just wanted to make that clear. It was posted to learn.

Of course it isn't, because you are going to want to keep it as the seed for this.... :mad:

I thought about PM'ing you about buying it, but then I'd have the seed part. Like I need another project, I already got the BA bug from Toolman and after seeing Rollin's work on the 1917 WC's I have to have one in my office... :lol:

Rollin why are you showing him dirty gun porn? Put a USGI in it! lol :lol:
It's what I do, lol. And as to the bolt, the customer wanted a 7.62 gun, not -06. Didn't compromise the belt holding pawl and bracket, just did the appropriate RR stop, the rest is swap-able. My personal one is USGI all the way, fear not!

And Bryan, you know I can help you out when you are in that moment of weakness. I am here to take advantage.... er.... I mean, I am here to serve! :eek:

I have decided to trade this extractor only. I am looking for a Colt 1928 backplate that has not been drilled for the recoil spring as some have been modified. Not sure if I'll have any luck but I'll try. More pictures if you desire.
