View Full Version : AR-15 FTE
Was getting FTE, replaced the extractor spring with a heavy duty one from Sprinco. took it to the range today and the same FTE. Used my sons bolt and rifle ran fine. Thinking of a new bolt? any ideas.

So no problem cycling at all, just failing to extract? Will it extract if hand cycled? If it hand cycles fine there isn't a problem with the bolt.
Yes this time FTE and FTF it did hand cycle.

If it hand cycles, but gas doesn't cycle it, it sounds like a gas problem. Does your buffer tube, buffer spring and buffer all match? What buffer? What barrel are you using? Gas system length?
chk gas key might be loose
Ahhhhh Emy! I see what you did there!
had it happen with me at the range didn't have the tool to tighten ,went home early

I did replace the buffer spring with a blue one from Sprinco. I'll go back to the original one and check the gas key.
