Destroyer Carbine question

Picked up a Destroyer Carbine recently and am looking for some information.... F1 code, and I assume that would be a date and the S/N is 31xxx, and from what I have seen on the internet, the extractors are the weak link (mine's broken, hence the great deal). Anybody have a source of somebody that might make these or at least dimensions?

    Years back I saw one at the local gun store. I think it had a broken extractor too (likely from no Largo ammo was around at the time). I'm guessing someone will need to make one.

    The extractor is hard to come by hard. Ebay might have one but probably infrequently. I've had three and two had weak extractors - sometimes the extractor would come off its band. Guess you could clean/polish the chamber/bore really good and use your finger nails to extract the fired cartridges (or possibly a cleaning rod if they stick).

    I have just noticed that SARCO is advertising Destroyer carbines in various states of disrepair. No bolts in any of them. Thinking of getting a barreled action just to have parts on hand.

    Had a friend that had one. set the barrel back so it would take standard 9mm.
    Had no extractor problems that I was aware of.
