Rimfire extractor

Ruptured case head blew the extractor out of our .17M2 Kimber 1911. Kimber no longer has parts and doesn't service their rimfires. Any suggestions??

The DW Vigil CCO in 45ACP has a ramped barrel to protect the alloy frame and enhance feeding. I assume the Commander model has the same; other models; don't know.

In digging around I found I actually did two bobbed Commander hammers; one on a 9mm and one on a 45ACP. I always thought the look was unique.

"Cooper on Handguns" page 131 has a photo of three of the Colonel's 1911s. I especially like the bobbed hammer on the Commander; so much so that I did one like it many years ago and still have it.

Remington Highway Master amm

Have done a search with no results. Does anyone know if Remington ever made the Highway Master ammo in .38 Super. I know they made a 173-grain .45ACP load and a .38 Spcl. load. Any others?

Thanks
