Next time at the range, bring some brass ammo with you (better bring a cleaning rod along for the ride). Fire both the Wolf and the brass.

Now pick up the fired brass, drop it into the chamber and release the bolt. Now cycle it. Stuck a little I bet, but you could do it.

Now pick up the fired Wolf, drop it into the chamber and release the bolt. Now cycle it. Use two hands if you have to. Every last bit of that force is being exerted on the little extractor. I doubt that's good for it.

When I did this w/ a CZ-75, I wasn't strong enough to cycle it. I had to use two hands and slam the front of the pistol against a plastic box to get it to cycle. I did it a few times just to be sure it wasn't a fluke. Same problem with the Silver Bear (Steel) ammo. Blazer and brass cycled fine.

I've fired lots of brass cased and steel cased Wolf together and seperately without any problems at all.

Maybe your problem is you're shooting with fired cases. I've never had your problem as I've never used fired cases in my rifles as they aren't as much fun when you pull the trigger and it's harder to hit the target.

Engineer stop thinking so hard about it and have fun shooting. Like AR15forfun said you can buy alot of extractors with the money savings but after a few thousand rounds of Wolf and no extractor problems, I don't think they are needed.

Why were you trying to shoot already fired cases? What should this prove? All cases swell in the chamber after being fired.
The fact that you would own blazer ammo nulifies the arguement to me.

Stop being an engineer and have some fun.

I think Ammoman said it all .

Ammoman, I am glad you have had good service with Wolf. We talked to them as a dealer out at the SHOT show, their only question was "how much ammo do you need?" When we told them a hundred cases a month they literaly laughed and turned to someone else.

Since then we stopped carring it do to that incident. We now carry the Klimovostock (Brown/Silver Bear) Pretty much the same stuff, slightly lower quality, but for some reason our customers like it better.

Incidentaly, we can not give away steel cased ammo in 7.62 X 39 in our area. Guys verything else, but not the AK fodder, go figure.

[Rant mode off.]

Lazyengineer- Interesting experiment.. So you chose to drop a fired casing into a decent handgun, and your remedy to clear it involved bludgeoning the shit out of it on the side of a box..

I too own a nice CZ-75. I try to avoid feeding it fired casings, as it is a bit pointless..It digests LOADED Wolf ammunition just fine.
