Check out THIS for possible difference between the two extractors. Otherwise, they’re the same. As for how to change it, CLICK HERE.
First, though, why do you want to change it? Is it giving you trouble? Most of the problems I’ve read about on here and BR.com are due to the extractor flying out at awkward moments. Sounds like you definitely do NOT have that problem. Anyway, best of luck to you…

Ric, Provi questo. Applichi un buon petrolio penetrante alla freccia nell'area di estrattore. Sul fondo del Suo attrezzo di smontaggio di freccia è un bottone Lei spinge a rimuovere l'estrattore. Rimuova il bottone. Con la freccia nell'attrezzo e l'estrattore depresse, si assicura che l'estrattore di othe più basso è fiancheggiato su col buco. Prenda un pugno di ottone ed un piccolo martello e guidi l'estrattore dalla freccia. HTH

English Translation.

Ric,
Try this. Apply a good penetrating oil to the bolt in the extractor area. On the bottom of your bolt disassembly tool there is a button you push to remove the extractor. Remove the button. With the bolt in the tool and the ejector depressed, make sure that the bottom othe extractor is lined up with the hole. Take a brass punch and a small hammer and drive the extractor from the bolt. HTH

...or you could just compress the bolt with the lever and then wack the button with a mallet. Works for me.
