Remington 870 Extractor Question

Here's something for Dfariswheel maybe. My nice new Wilson Border Patrol has what I assume to be one of the dreaded new MIM extractors in it. I have two bolts from older Wingmaster 870's with shiny (chromed?) extractors. The MIM part has a relief cut in it, presumably to enhance fitting over the rim of the cartridge. The older extractors don't. Now, I will be the first to admit I am obsessing over a trivial point but that's part of the fun of the hobby, isn't it? Should I replace the new extractor with the old? Better design versus better materials, an idle mind wants to know. I suppose I could take a file to one of the old extractors...

The new extractors seem to be OK, but, if you have an older milled version why not replace it?

Can't hurt, and may add some reliability.
