Although too early to know what parts may need to be kept as "spares" has anyone thought about what parts they would order "just in case"? Are there any potential weaknesses in the LCP that an experienced shooter would identify as something they would have on hand? Thanks.

I'm the type of guy that just has to fiddle with everything. I decided I didn't like the looks of the extractor on my LCP, so I popped it out to do a little reprofiling and smoothing, anyway, long story short, I launched the extractor plunger into some sort of black hole in my workroom never to be seen again :p So now I have extra extractors, plungers, and springs. I also got an extra take down pin and recoil springs. I got these not due to any perceived weaknesses but due to my "Fiddle Compulsion", I just can't help myself......
Regards,
Mike

Oobeb, upon reassembly and installation of said extractor, did it look any different or the same as before you fiddled with it?

Arguably it is the only part of my gun I haven't fiddled with (of those that are easily fiddleable) and like you, I think it looks a bit odd - crooked or something - so I desperately want to go and fiddle with it, but my mind is telling me not to for some strange reason, I can't put my finger on it. Oh yes, because if it ain't broke, don't fix it..

But I want to!! The LCP has fired flawlessly since I got it, yet I still want to go and mess with the extractor. HELP ME!! ;D :eek: :mad: ???

Bob, your solution is way to logical for me, makes too much sense :D

Dogg, look at this thread, and then listen to your mind.... ;D

Oh, wait, I see you already have looked at it, anyway can you take a pic of your extractor? I'm not sure what you mean by crooked....if you get one taken why don't you post it in the Technical board......

After spending a minute or two looking for the take down pin in the dirt today when cleaning after shooting, I think having an extra one and slide springs would be a good idea.

Hmmm, you must take the term "Field Strip" fairly literally. ;)
