PLEASE NOTE: Tula Ammunition and Golden Tiger have issues where some primers are set too far in and will still cause light strikes even with an Enhanced Firing Pin
- For this reason, we highly suggest sticking to steel cause ammunition such as Wolff or Silver Bear
- If you continue to have light primer strikes with Enhanced Firing first check your hammer spring to ensure it is installed properly.
- We make no guarantees or warranty using our extractors with AR47 proprietary bolt assemblies, even though they may work the AR-15 7.62x39 extractors were designed around the AR-15 and not around AR47 style rifles that take AK magazines.
THE 2 MOST COMMON THINGS THAT CONTRIBUTE TO PREMATURE EXTRACTOR FAILURES:
- Tula Ammunition. Tula is extremely hard on 7.62x39 bolt assemblies and extractors. We have tested this particular brand on many occasions and have found that cartridges tend to get stuck and/or casings do not shrink properly which causes undue stress on the extractors and the bolt lug next to the extractor. This will contribute to premature failures of these parts.
- Overgassing! Overgassing is another issue we see most common in premature bolt assemblies and extractor failures. To prevent premature part failures, the 7.62x39 best performs with a 4 pm ejection pattern (from a shooter's perspective looking at the ejection port as if it were a clock 12 pm to 6 pm). If you are at a 2 pm to 3:30 pm for ejection pattern you are overgassed with this caliber. To slow down the bolt carrier you can use a heavier buffer such as an H2 to get your ejection pattern as close to 4 pm as possible as this allows for the casing to shrink further before extraction takes place thus reducing the stress of the bolt assembly and/or extractor.
WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND WOLF AMMUNITION FOR THIS CALIBER
