    I had a gun smith tell me I should put some Ed Brown super something or nother extractor in my Kimber. Hell I ain't even got 3k rounds through the thing yet,and the gun fires flawlessly. I shouldn't need an extractor for a hell of a long time should I? What is the average life span of an extractor:headscratch: :dunno:

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    I would, however, keep a spare extractor, firing pin and recoil spring around, just in case... I prefer Dawson -- they make things especially for Kimbers. I don't know about the Ed Brown line, but Kimber has a different design on their firing pins and a slightly different cut extractor.

    Having a spare isn't a bad idea, especially if you compete or it's your only pistol.

    Ed Brown Hard Core and Wilson Bullit Proof extractors are good parts.

    You should still have plenty of life in your original though. I had one break at 30,000 rounds in one of my Kimbers.
