I picked up a shell extractor for my akms a few years ago and still haven't used it. Then I got to thinking........how does one use a shell extractor? Is the extractor placed in the magazine while cycling the action? Not that I expect Wolf ammo steel case to leave anything behind in the chamber(not in about 6000 rounds now) , what is the procedure for using an extractor?

Hope I don't mess this up. Place into chamber. turn end to flare it out to catch the lip of the half stuck. then close bolt/carrier over the end. The extractor should lock over the end. It's shaped like a case anyhow. It should hold and snatched and shell should come out. Im tired. Hope you understand. I have seen it happen on several occasions. Normally it was reloaded ammo. Bad reloaded ammo .... But I have seen it happen on Wolf 7.62 FMJ. I couldn't tell you if it was a chamber issue or ammo. But it does and can happen to any weapon. Cheers WarDawg

The only case I've ever seen fail is a crappy Iraqi brass cased shell. I've never needed one, exept for 'over there', but if you need one there is no substitute.

I plan to get a shell extractor along with a replacement bolt for my SHTF kit.

(Oh, and also more mags.... :heavy: )
