This is one I thought I knew the answer to, but the more I hear, the more confused I get. What is the difference between M1 Garand and M14 extractors and can I use an M1 Garand Extractor in an M14 and not have any problems? I have found some new M1 extractors at a good price and would like to get a couple for my M14. Is this a good idea? Thanks.

I was told the M1 extractors will function fine in an M1A and there is little difference between the two. I just installed one today in my SAI because I was having FTE's every 50 rounds or so. I compared the 2 side by side and couldn't see any difference except the M1 appeared to be machined more precisely. Probably why they function better than SAI's commercial extractors. I am curious about this as well?

The M1 extractor is the same when they first came out. They had problems firing blank ammo and modified the extractor just slightly with a bevel cut to the tip of the claw. You can use a M1 extractor.
