I was shooting today and noticed the rifle "felt odd" on extraction, so I took it inside to break it down and realized my extractor hook, was broken in half. I bought a new one and installed it and continued shooting. I need to call RRA and give them some hell. My DPMS POS a-15 had twice as many rounds through it and the extractor never broke! Yes this was wolf, same as I shoot in my other AR.

Give RRA a chance to make it right before going nuclear on them. They're a good company that should do you right.

DAMN WOLF AMMO!

Seriously though, do you think that all parts should be flawless? There's always a bad part once in awhile. And was your gun still functioning? That's testament to how well they function....WHILE BROKEN!

Come on, man....with the money you save shooting Wolf...you cant afford to replace a $13.00 extractor?

The girls I run around with are always joking about how many extractors they can afford to replace because they shoot Wolf.

If'ins yer gonna dance with the devil...occasionally yer gonna have to tip the piper!

It seems to me that this should be filed under shit happens...

Part breaks, but the rifle continued to run, I'd say good for RRA.

Shit happens, parts break. Give RRA a call and see what they will do before you go off on them.

These things happen. Now would be a great time to by a nice assortment of replacement parts for your rifle.

I've broken a few extractors.
As long as it's USGI, you lessen the odds, but they still break.
Very hard for a manufacturer to see a defect in such a small in inexpensive part.
They should make it right ($2).

ETA: That's why I carry a USGI cleaning rod. The Otis kits are nice, but they won't punch out a stuck cartridge.

It was a snap to fix, luckily they had one in. I was acutally amazed it kept extracting with about 1/3 the surface area it started with. I will just wait until the next machine gun shoot at KCR, they will have a table there.
