I was wondering if one could use their regular extractor and an off center chamber by doing some tricky machine cuts.  Sounds like it has been done  Cheesy

The extractor will need to be lined up with the chamber.If the chamber is moved up or down with the offset threads the extractor will need to be changed or altered to match.

If I recall correctly each barrel had its' own extractor activated by a simple lever similar to the Ballard 22 extractor. I'm sure the 22 barrel was an offset bore to use the same firing pin as the 45/70 barrel. I'm going on memory here and I'm on the back side of 70 so take it for what it's worth.

JOHN:
    That would certainly be the logical way to do it.   Kind of like the Hubalek extractors in the Ballards.   I am amazed that so many people took hold of this thread and beat it to death -- aren't you?
    Probably see you next week at SF&G BPCS.   Lots of lies to tell.  I am trying to get a German KESSLER to work for the schuetzen match week after.   Come and play with us!!  I'll try to remember to bring some flyers.  & the 25RF Stevens is shooting clover-leafs at 50 yd.
