The Makarov Extractor Spring Plunger is one of the important parts for the Makarov pistol. These extractor spring plungers came from an arsenal rebuild kit that was used to overhaul Makarov pistols in the former East Germany. With no new Makarov pistols being produced, spare parts such as this are an excellent investment to ensure your prized Makarov continues to operate in the future.
Makarov Extractor Spring Plunger
The Makarov extractor spring plunger, located within the slide of the Makarov between the extractor and the extractor spring, is an unissued surplus extractor spring plunger.
The extractor is one of the most critical components of any firearm. Designed to extract spent cartridges cases from the chamber of the firearm, the extractor is essential to the overall function and reliability of the firearm. As such, the extractor spring plunger is almost equally important. In the Makarov pistol, the Makarov extractor spring plunger serves as a buffer between the extractor and the extractor spring and assists in placing tension on the extractor as it transfers the kinetic energy from the spring to the extractor and effectively holds it in place.
