    kimber internal/external extractor

    I've read several posts that talk about problems with the external extractor on kimber .45s.
    I own an ultra cdp II, and like it a lot.

    How can I tell if it has an external, or internal extractor?

    Here's a pic showing the external extractor. You'll know if you got one.

    The pics says it all but - I'd say a general rule with 1911's is - if all you can see is the claw - it's internal!

    Yep.

    An easy way to remember, all series IIs are external.

    Chris,

    You can't see an internal, unless the slide is racked and you're looking into the port.

    I thought Kimber went back to the internal on the series II after all the problems with their short barrel models?

    Sorry but that's wrong. All series II denotes is that it has a firing pin safety, that's all. I have a Pro Carry II and it has the internal extractor.

    gunfighter48,

    You are correct sir, I am wrong, it is because of the Swartz FP block and not do to the external extractor.

    My apologies steve_db.

    Chris,

    After thinking about it, I was also wrong about not being able to see an internal extractor, you can see the "body" of the internal extractor on the older original Browning Hi-Powers.

    Always some exceptions Dan - but yes I should have qualified my ''just a claw showing'' to mean of course with slide back!

    I had a real early HP once but do not remember the appearance re the extractor - wish I still had it.
