Thank you Rob
We're still waiting for the final test pieces to be delivered from the machine shop. As it stands, the extractors are done and are waiting to be electroplated and polished. I wasn't pleased with the final version of the titanium nitrited parts because the coating vendor was having a difficult time figuring out how to hold the tiny parts and then apply the hard coating. This left the parts with one side untreated. That just wasn't going to fly. I searched for other suppliers and then stumbled across a way of assuring an absolute hard as bat sh!+ surface, while also being able to utilize a hardened steel material with excellent wear and corrosion resistance. The good news is that my same shop that's making the extractors is the same group finishing the pieces. I'm just waiting to be slipped back into the queue. I was told just before Thanksgiving that the extractor test pieces would be done in about one week. We should have some good news shortly thereafter. Thanks for hanging in there. All of this work has been on top of getting into the queue on one-piece Picatinny scope mounts and aluminum mag wells for the 5.56 rifles. Trust me, we haven't been sitting around twiddling our thumbs. I appreciate you checking in. Hope your Thanksgiving was a good one. Take care.
Thanks for all your hard work and due diligence to get us the best product you can. It's greatly appreciated.
Awesome! You guys are doing a hell of a job.
Hi. It's been a while since I checked in on this forum. Wow!
I'd like to be in on extractor upgrade as well. Please count me in. Also interested in mag release upgrade.
How do I send PayPal?

MVP driver, no problem will do on the extractor. I am sending you a pm now about the release.
being the newbie............... was there a problem with the factory extractors??
Al in Mi, some of the guys were breaking them on certain types of ammo.
Rob, is that a problem on the 308's also?
I haven't heard of any issues there. I just got my 308 and haven't had time to go use it.
Out of the bajillions out there, there were only three reported broken in 5.56 that I know of and they were with steel cases that got stuck.
These improved parts are real high grade stuff in materials and manufacture and specs.
I'll probably never "need" the improved extractors but I am getting them. If I ever have to hammer the bolt open on a stuck case either the case itself or a goodly chunk of the rim, either way something is coming out. It's nice to have the toughest stuff you can get.
No reports of any .308 extractor issues reported here or anywhere else to date.
I'll get some of those too when they become available for the same reasons above.
Is there a walk through for removing/installing the extractor ?
Try cleaning under the extractor claw and it will spontaneously remove itself. Not sure how I found mine... It just sides out the side of the claw.
Blastaway, as Chuck had mentioned it will come out as soon as you try cleaning around it . I always put the bolt face down on the table with a rag or soft towel under it and push on the extractor with a small flat piece of wood. You will feel it click as it pushes out of place. Now that is the easy part, now putting it back is a little bit of a pain. I use the same piece of wood to depress the ball and at the same time you slide the extractor back over the assembly while pull the piece of wood out of the way.
