I examined those two parts for about an hour earlier, including cleaning the extractors hole, and they looked solid as far as wear and dirt goes. However, once I took the forend wood off and looked only at the metal, it seems that the small pin that pushes the activator is tilting, instead of moving straight back and forth. Perhaps it is getting stuck in this small dimple?
It does not appear that it belongs.
