The Makarov extractor, located within the slide of the Makarov and secured via the extractor spring and plunger, is an unissued surplus extractor.
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. The Makarov is no exception. Upon each discharge, the slide is forced rearward. During its travel, the claw of the extractor will latch onto the rim of the cartridge case. As the slide continues its rearward movement, the case will be removed from the chamber and readied for ejection.
The Makarov extractor, like all of our spare and replacement parts for the Makarov, are unused parts that were obtained from a spare parts inventory in Germany. All spare and replacement parts for the Makarov sold by Keepshooting.com are interchangeable in all Makarov pistols. These parts are not compatible with the Polish P-64 or the Hungarian PA-63.
Spare and replacement parts are an important consideration when it comes to firearms. Like any machine, firearms rely on a series of parts to function properly, especially all components that impact the firing sequence. In general, if a part breaks or fails, a repair or replacement becomes immediately necessary – not only to keep a firearm functioning properly but also to ensure the safety of yourself and those around you.
It is also important to consider availability when discussing spare and replacement parts. At this time, Keepshooting.com is seeking to provide our customers with a wide selection of spare and replacement parts for the Makarov. Several brand new parts are now readily available on our website at an affordable price. If you have any need or desire for spare or replacement parts, now would be a good time to take advantage of this offering.
While I would probably not count on the Makarov extractor to save you from any hostage situations, I would definitely count on it to keep your Makarov functioning properly and reliably for years to come. As such, it would probably be a good idea to keep a spare on hand.
