looking for colt lightning 22 caliber extractor spring

Larsen brings up a good point.   The .22 version of the Lightning is very different from its medium and large frame relatives.   I was talking with Lassiter about them once. and he described a large frame as a medium frame "on steroids."   Essentially an upscaled version of the medium. although there are some minor differences.   But the small frame Lightnings are completely different.   They actually have a lot more in common with the Winchester 73 in some ways.   And if you look at the three sizes. you can see that this is all so.

Colt .22 Lightnings do not have an extractor spring.  The extractor is one piece with the tail acting as a spring.  Numrich has them.



Reminds me of the left side extractor of a winny 97 SG.
