Replacing the extractor, plunger and spring on my mini. Purchased those 3 parts through Numrich. I have been at this for 6 hours and the new plunger will not pop into the space on the extractor.
did I potentially purchase the wrong part? Can someone please help.
Might be the case, don't see any other option why it wouldn't fit. Also since you're replacing and not building it from the scratch, might some sort of grease or trimmings accumulating(shot in the dark). So cleaning it up a bit with gun cleaning kits might help. Other than that - might be just a wrong order.
If the plunger does not drop down into the hole without the spring the plunger is the issue.If a large portion of the plunger sticks out with the spring installed then the spring is too long.If the spring is a little too long you can cut it off with a dremmel tool.
