Ok Ranger Point, I wasn't going to leave a review, but you sent an email asking for one, so here it is. I'll tell you in summary right now it's not all good, as indicated by the three stars I've given. Ideally I would be able to provide 2 separate ratings - one for the extractor itself, and one for the supplied punch. If that were the case, the extractor would get 5 stars (at least as of now; I'm not finished testing). But the punch would get only 1 star, hence the 3 star average of the two. The reason is simple: that punch is too short by about 3/16". Unlike the test rifle you used in your installation video, my 1894FG has been used for some time, and the factory extractor had never been removed. It was pretty dirty in there - enough that I needed a punch that went all the way through the bolt to get the pin out. But the one provided was too short to do that, so I had to find other means to remove the pin. Once it was out, the installation went as advertised and the extractor has functioned flawlessly so far. Any potential buyers reading this, be advised: if your gun has been used a lot and the extractor never removed before, don't depend on the supplied punch being long enough to drive the pin all the way out.
The installation of the RPP extractor solved all major feed problems with the 94 Carbine. I plan to replace extractors in three other Marlin 1894's with the RPP extractor claw.
Placed the order 10/18 (shipped same day)..delivered 10/22..Fantastic! Extractor performs flawlessly... Thanks..!! (Marlin lever is next..)
The RPP extractor clearly solved the feeding “hitch” caused by the bobby-pin extractor problem. Including the punch (and online video) with the new part is an excellent idea. I created a punch block from a piece of 2 x3 (cut a groove, drilled a pin hole). Three raps with a light ball peen hammer and done. The RPP extractor has a stability that cannot be achieved with the original extractor. Absolutely Satisfied...
Just finished installing my second RPP extractor in another Marlin 1894. Works just as great as the first rifle I installed one in last spring. Worth the price. I highly recommend it.
Last April, I wrote about how much I liked the new RPP Extractor I installed in my Marlin 1894CS .357 rifle. Last week, I installed another one in a recently acquired Marlin 1894CB .357 rifle. Again it was a great improvement in both extraction and the overall cycling of the rifle. I highly recommend you get one. They are well worth the price.
The perfect solution to faulty design & manufacturing of the 1894 Marlin. I only had to radius the bottom of the extractor slightly to keep from shaving a tiny bit of brass and causing a "catch" on pickup. Runs jet smooth now and no cartridge is left behind.
#2 is a direct fit for 2017 Marlin 1894 .45 Colt.
Nice Job RPP. Extractor works great.
I installed the RPP M/94 extractor claw into my 1980 Marlin 1894 .357 that had the old style spring steel extractor. Installation was a breeze (after cleaning the crud out of the hole!). Action cycled fine so next step was to get to the range. I also brought my tool kit and my 1995 44 mag rifle so I could install it in that rifle while at the range.
I set up at 50 yards and had 150 rds of PMC .357 and 50 rds of PMC 38spl. I tried the 38spl first, loaded up 5 rounds and chambered the first one without a hitch. This rifle is usually fussy about shooting 38's. Shot the 5 rds without a problem, loaded again, and no problems. Shot the whole box and cycled perfect, neatly tossing the empties at 2 o'clock. I went to the .357 next and had zero issues with those. I shot strings a bit slower as the barrel was getting quite hot but it had zero functioning issues. The action feels like it cycles a bit smoother while feeding and like it did with the 38spl, it put all empties in a nice pile at 2 o'clock. No matter how slow/easy or hard/fast I cycled it, the empties always went at 2 o'clock. Makes it real easy to pick up brass when it's in a neat pile. I shot off bags for most of the session so I was able to keep my brass landing right on the bench by cycling it "softly”.
Once I used up my ammo I took it apart and removed the RPP extractor and sadly re-installed the spring steel stock one. Then I pulled the bolt from the 44 mag, popped out the old extractor and installed the RPP, right there on the shooting bench. Installation was again very quick and easy. After putting the rifle together I got my 44 ammo out and got to work.
The ammo I used for the Marlin 44 mag testing were all reloads from February 1999, 100 of them. I had a pile of 44 mag ammo from 1999 but I'm finally down to my last 4 boxes so I grabbed two for this test run. I loaded up 5 rds, first one fed easily, shot and extracted easily as did the remaining rounds. I noticed during the first 5 shots that I was getting the same ejection of the empties as I had with the .357, all tossed at 2 o'clock. Neither one of these rifles used to do that. I shot the first box of 50 without a hitch, let it cool for a bit while some fellow shooters showed up and got set up. Once shooting resumed, I put the remaining 50 through it without issue. It felt like it cycles smoother than it used to, and did I mention it tosses the empties neatly at 2 c'clock?
I can't wait to get some of these for all my 94's once they get them rolling out. I plan to equip all 5 of my 1894's with this new “claw!’ Big Thank You to Adam/RPP! I'm sold.
