My A3 actually doesn't appear to really need an extractor as it will fire 5 or 6 shots, ejecting its brass in good fashion without an extractor. But even with the hotter Mini Mag ammo it will appear to short stroke every so often with the empty caught in the action in line with the barrel but apparently hasn't hit the ejector, and the next round in the mag not getting picked up either. Looks like the bolt spring is a little too stiff or too long, giving too much resistance to the recoiling bolt, not letting it reach its fully back position. Has anyone else had this experience? Another problem was that the magazine catch had just a tiny little nick in the edge of the magazine rib with which to hold the mag in position. Pushing up or down on the mag would slide it out of position. I was afraid that even though it fed fine that it would fall out of the gun and be lost or damaged. So I enlarged the notch with a moto tool. Now it holds better but it wont feed very well! The upshot is that I need to send it off to PK in Colorado for a tune-up.
