    Well we finally are happy with the extractor. I had a chance to get out today and test the new version we got on Monday. I ran 60 rounds of Tula steel case through it. Once I got some heat in the chamber you could feel the clear on the cases starting to make the bolt lift more difficult. Out of 60 rounds I had 4 case that stuck to were I had to tap the bolt backwards with my hand to get them out, but they came out. All in all I am very happy and can move forward with confidence.

    The latest on the extractor is that I'm still not 100% satisfied with the durability of the material we currently tested. I've been doing a LOT of reading on the subject of extractors, and it's definitely a closely guarded secret with most manufacturers as to what the "perfect" material is for such a part. That is turning out to be the understatement of the century! So far, Rob and I have tested six different materials and three different surface treatments. All have their benefits and their drawbacks. There is a very thin line between ductility and brittleness that has to be explored with each particular rifle and caliber. Having said all of that, it turns out that an extractor we first made in the early stages of development has been holding up extremely well to all sorts of ugliness. Metal cased ammo, and high cycle volumes haven't affected the part. We moved on from that part and experimented with some exotic materials that looked great at first, but wouldn't stand up to metal casings. Run 100 rounds of that nasty Tula ammo through your rifle and see how fast that stock extractor holds up! Soooooo... we're back in the queue at the machine shop this morning to have a couple more of those first extractors made one last time to test before we do a final production release. I'm going to put the heat on them as soon as they open this morning to get those test pieces to me, and then Rob and I will do our best to destroy them out at the range. If all goes well, and I truly expect that it will, we'll give the shop the green light to do a real production run. That's the whole scoop for now. I hope to have some good news shortly.

    Hi guys, As Mike has stated thanks for your patience on the parts we are bringing to the market. Mike and I talked last night and we determined that we will only bring parts that function and fit as they are supposed to. We are vey confident in the new extractor that we will offer a Lifetime Guarantee on this part. No Questions Asked

    I seem to recall an advertisement years ago that said something like"Made in America with Pride"! It's nice to see that happening again! Thanks.

    Thanks Rob! any chance you can do a bulk accessories pack? I'm interested in everything you have developed for the 5.56 mvp, you've done a fantastic job going by the pictures!

    I suppose if you're going to give the extractors a lifetime guarantee, ill only need one...
