    I have a JHP that I'm doing some custom work on. I plan on painting the slide & grips.
    Can't figure out how to remove the extractor from the slide. I'd like to leave it black. Does it even come off?.

    There's a pin. Tap it out. Should be fairly obvious once you notice it.

    Take a small punch and tap this pin out from the bottom of the slide.

    Thanks, my eyes are so bad, I didn't see the tiny hole on the top of the slide.

    Been using one of those on my scroll saw for over a decade. May get another one for in the house. The one I have has a clamp on the end so you can fasten it to a table or other flat surface.
