AR-15 Malfunction: Extractor Slips Off Case Rim

In an attempt to explain a few of the causes of failures to extract in the AR platform, I made a short video using high speed footage (you can tell that I really like this camera, eh?).

I must apologize for the low quality of the first malfunction video clip. I failed to properly focus the camera. Still, the basic effect is evident.

The video does not exhaustively cover the causes of FTEs, just one of the more common ones.

I plan to create similar (and more in-depth) videos in the future.

    Did you remove or deform the extractor spring for the purpose of getting the shots?

    Love these videos, it puts out a lot of information from a view that was previously only seen by a few proprietary interests. I’m certain it will promote awareness among AR15 owners and raise the bar for quality built guns on the market.
