My daughter brought the broken BCG over today. The hook at the end of the extractor snapped in half. The part that holds the rim. I gave her the new AIM BCG I just bought and will replace the broken extractor arm.
I'm still on the fence about my next AR upper barrel. I may just order a Faxon 11.5" Gunner barrel in 5.56. I like the first one I got from Sportsman's Guide on sale last year at $119.99 + shipping. Never see that price again.lol

I am a very bad person for offering constructive advice that could be misconstrued for constructive criticism. My bad I apologize for. Rails? Like the constructive feedback about the oxygen producing machine I offered you at no cost to you I apologize.
I am sorry sir. Just trying to help prolong your life.
I would have amortized the cost no matter what as I consider you a friend.
My bad Mike and I apologize again.

Lets try and keep it civil, just a few core members here and I like to see thing stay calm until either the lights go out, or things liven up here a bit with some builds. I may post a ASR build in a bit when I get the time to do it just so we can get the ball rolling again
I don't drink caffeine. Construed advice is not constructive criticism. It's a hand out with out being a hand up.
It's just advice. With leading to the Military manuals I believe are paramount to our hobby. No more. No less.
Leading to tooling and knowledge to further our hobby and home.

We good. Just a misunderstanding. After getting the flu last week, I may be needing a oxygen machine more sooner than later. I believe the flu caused me to lose more lung capacity.

I put in a order with the good folks at Midway USA on Saturday and received a e-mail Sunday letting me no my order has shipped. Extractor, mid length gas tube, gas tube roll pin, and extractor spring kit will run me $25.00 to my door.
I went cheap, I know. Hope I never have to use it in anger.

AR-Stoner is Midways house brand, essentially they find a deal on parts and re-brand them. No telling who actually made your new extractor, could be a top of the line Colt sold cheap to Midway as an overstock or Hong Kong Fooey's finest knockoff... As a result their quality rep is mixed. I have heard their SS bbls are made by Douglas and some of the others are from ER Shaw so I wouldn't be afraid to buy one of their bbls though.
Thanks kernel, I have a 11.5"Faxon barrel on a Shockwave Blade pistol I assembled. Never fired it yet. The parts should be here on the 16th. Maybe I can throw the repaired bolt in it and make some noise this weekend. I should have spent the extra $11 and got the better extractor. It said Milspec. I hope it last.
