So far I've really struggled with the recoil pins. I've broken 5 end mills and ruined a slitting saw. I'm using a keyway cutter now, and I just discovered that this entire time my vise had a lot of slop in it, causing a lot of deflection which ruined several parts. After I fixed the vise, I think it's going to go smooth.
Back to my original post, we are going to start making the extractors next. How did you guys make those? I bought keystock instead of flat bar, but I'm wondering if the flat bar is a better way to go. Thoughts and ideas are appreciated.

Here's a picture after the first operation, which was laying flat in a vise.
Also a picture after the second operation standing on edge with special cut Aluminum jaws.
There's a .010 thk. tab on the front radius.
After that I break them out and deburr them.
The tang is a stop.

I've used the Ruger method of attaching the extractors,
very simple and works great
