Here are the specs

Firearm Fit:
  1. Location: The extractor is part of the bolt assembly, which is a key component of the AK-47's operating system. It is typically located on the face of the bolt.

  2. Function: The primary function of the extractor is to engage with the rim of a spent cartridge case, holding onto it as the bolt moves rearward during the cycling of the action. This action extracts the spent casing from the chamber.

  3. Claw Design: The AK-47 extractor typically features a claw-like design that grips the rim of the cartridge case. This claw design is robust and effective, contributing to the reliability of the AK-47's extraction process.

  4. Durability: Extractors are constructed from durable materials, often steel, to withstand the stresses and pressures associated with repeated cycling during firing.

  5. Extractor Spring: In many AK-47 designs, the extractor is accompanied by an extractor spring. The extractor spring provides tension to the extractor, ensuring positive engagement with the cartridge rim.

  6. Replacement Parts: Like many firearm components, the extractor can wear out over time with extended use. Fortunately, it is a replaceable part, and users may choose to replace the extractor if signs of wear or damage are observed.

  7. Maintenance: Regular maintenance of the bolt assembly, including the extractor, is crucial for the reliable function of the AK-47. Cleaning, inspection, and lubrication help ensure smooth cycling and extraction.

  8. Compatibility: While the basic design of the extractor is standardized across AK-47 rifles, there may be slight variations in manufacturing tolerances. When replacing the extractor, users should ensure compatibility with their specific AK-47 model.

  9. Extractor Cut in the Barrel: The chamber of the AK-47 barrel typically has an extractor cut, a groove or recess that accommodates the extractor's movement during the extraction process.

  10. Critical for Reliability: The proper functioning of the extractor is essential for the overall reliability of the AK-47. A well-maintained and properly functioning extractor contributes to consistent and trouble-free cycling of the rifle.
