Good morning guys. First time posting on here and looking for some guidance.

I just picked up my second Vepr 54r that was at a local pawn shop. Shot it for the first time and it had back to back FTE - wasn't extracting the case at all.
When I got home I inspected it and it looked like the extractor was out of place. I compared it to my other 54r and it was noticeable. I was able to remove the extractor with my fingers without removing the retaining pin and it looks like its deformed :( I pulled my other extractor out to compare and you can see the difference. I also put the good extractor in the new gun's bolt to see if there was any other issues and it fit in correctly so I think this problem is isolated to the extractor.

What are my options here?
option A. Is there enough metal and is it malleable enough form back into place around the pin? maybe in a vice? (guessing unlikely)
option B. I saw user mrgreen made a few batches of these awhile back and they were available at http://www.thesecretweapon.net/ - is there a group or thread looking to get any more runs made?
option C. Is anyone willing to part with a spare extractor to get this girl up and running?
option D. Open to suggestions?

Thanks all!
