Q: Will this part fit a standard 5.56/300 BLK bolt?
A: While this part will fit a 5.56 Bolt Assembly it will not extract properly as the 7.62x39 Extractor's rim is designed for the 7..62x39 case.
Q: Does you 7.62x39 extractor fit 7.62x39 bolts from most manufacturers? Are there specific manufacturer's bolts that they do and do not fit? Thanks.
A: Should fit any mil-spec bolt with a true .125" bolt face. If a bolt is proprietary to a certain company then you should stick with bolt companies parts.
Q: When will this item be back in stock?
A: We have a few in stock. We will get a new shipment for them any day, though. If you put in an order for 1 to 3 QTY, I can get them shipped out tomorrow.
Q: What material is the extractor made of? Is it MIM or 4140 steel?
A: Our extractor is not MIM. These extractors are machined from MIL-S-5000 steel and vacuum hardened. I have updated the products page to include this information.
Q: Why will this extractor not work in a Bear Creek bolt? Are the bolts not within spec?
A: After many issues with customers with BCA bolt assemblies and 7.62x39 extractors we got a hold of a BCA bolt carrier group and the extractor pocket on the bolt assembly was not machined out to accept the 7.62x39 extractor which allows the extractor to sit up and bind in the barrel extension. BCA bolts or extractors does not meet our specs. BCA is the only bolt assembly we have issues with; therefore, we issued that disclaimer.
