View Full Version : Help me with a funky extractor -

April 06, 2002, 12:25
On one of my G1 kits I noticed the bolt has an extractor unlike any I've seen before. There's no "hole" to place a tool in and compress the spring, allowing you to take out the front part of the extractor.

All I see is the end of a little "pin" sticking up (if the front of the bolt is up), and a "slot" in what would be the part you normally take out just before the spring shoots across the room.

Is this one of the older one piece extractors? How do I take it out?????

Yes it is a one piece extractor.

To remove it just put a screw driver blade into the slot where the cartridge rim would go, then push to the side away from the bolt body all the way, and pull forward to pull it out. Don't worry, no forward spring pressure to launch it .
