Beat me to it.


The extractor needs;

1} to move freely in/out during the entire rearward slide process till the empty leaves the gun

2} follow the case as the case moves along the bolt face

Really, folks, there is a lot more going on here than the "Limpwristing Did It!!" and "Use Better Ammo!!" crowd would have you believe.

Some of them may be good parts swappers, but they are surely no gunsmiths.
