I cannot leave well enough alone, last weekend I took apart my G2c for some cleanig, mainly bored. I noticed some build up in the striker channel and it would not come out. I took apart the extractor and found brass shavings under it and in the striker channel. Well when trying to put the extractor together the pin and spring went "sprong" and I will be damned cannot find it until today. I was out on the sidewalk and look down and see something that looks like a small rock, look closer and its the extractor pin no spring.....oh there's the spring. I guess it got attached to me somehow and fell off outside, it made it through a day of rain also. From now on I think I will just use gun scrubber for the striker channel and extactor I did call Taurus yesterday, got through right away and my pin and spring will be here in 8 to 10 days.
