    Hello Everyone!

    Well, I replaced my broken bolt lock pin in my brand new 590a1 and have a quick question about the extractor pins.

    Is the right hand extractor pin and the the firing pin retaining pin the same length, same pin? And the left hand extractor pin the shorter one?

    I think the left hand pin has to be the shorter one so the ejector can slide along the bolt?

    Also, when I use the manuals directions for unloading, when I have the gun upside down and push in on the cartridge interrupter, the shell starts to pop out, but gets hung up on the elevator. The elevator is sitting on the bolt tightly, but does not allow the shell to pass by. If I release the slide and pull it back just a little bit, as I then push in on the interrupter, the shells fly back. Any thoughts?

    Thanks for any help.
