Makarov Extractor Spring
The Makarov extractor spring, located within the slide of the Makarov adjacent the extractor and the extractor plunger, is an unissued surplus extractor spring.
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 is almost equally important. In the Makarov pistol, the Makarov extractor spring is used to place tension on the extractor plunger, which transfers the kinetic energy from the spring to the extractor and effectively holds it in place.
