Thanks for the info. Looking for info for my husband. Don't know the difference in a .38 special and .38.
Thanks so muchTry looking on EBay. There are a couple of sellers that post parts for older S&W gun. This seller in particular lists parts on a regular basis: estatejewels4u2 .
I have him on my saved seller list in EBay and get notified vis an email from time to time of his new listings. It will take some time but you should be able to find what you need. Good luck!
The extractor star is one of the more carefully fitted parts ... so even if you find one, be prepared to do some careful fitting to make it work.
