    I have a 1951 Red Eagle Standard Pistol, "Type 8", serial number 14***.  Fixed sights

     

    Original manual, but no box, 'salt cod' shipping box or anything like that.  It shot well, and had been well used---the Red Eagle was partially worn away when I purchased the pistol a few years ago. No rust, some wear of the blueing by the front of the receiver. I'm not confident in my ability to describe its condition according to NRA grades.

     

    Anyway, it has started to no longer extract an unfired cartridge from the chamber.  Which has become a pain.  It has been cleaned and lubricated.  Still does it.  It will rarely do it with fired cases now.  I believe the extractor spring is original and is in need of replacement.  Will I dramatically lower the pistol's value if I replace the extractor and spring with a kit from, e.g., Volquartsen?

     

    Thanks,
