Inch Top

The bottom one looks metric with the wing removed, but I reserve the right to be wrong.

Something bothered me about these photos. So I did a little research. The top extractor is indeed a metric, but like none I've seen. The claw looks like the Aussie or C1A1 type 2. The bottom one is an Aussie type 3.

I had picked up one of the wing-less extractors from GPC a while ago, what is the significance of it being wing-less? product improvement?
