View Full Version : Extractors

I received a bolt and carrier from Tapco today, when I ordered it I was told they would be FN parts from a G1, but the extractor is differant from my G1 or Imbels, there doesn't seem to be a plunger. Does anyone know what they sent me. :confused:

That would most likely be an original design "1-piece" extractor. It's easy to pull out if you want. take a screw driver blade and insert under the claw, then while pushing outward, lever it forward. It should come right out. The spring will look like a hairpin.

It is almost certainly an FN, by the way.

One piece extractor bolts are usually Israeli in origin, made by FN. Other metric variants imported in quantities were made after the switch to the two piece extractor.
Bolt source can be verified by markings and wear patterns.
