    M1 vs. M14 Extractor?

    Been looking for an image of the differences between an M1 and M14 Extractor? I can't seem to find one. Does anybody have one or know where one is?

    I recall there was difference at the start but later Bill Ricca published information that a new designed was developed to fit both M1 and M14 bolts

      I don't think there is a difference. At least not on USGI rifles. Repro M14's ??

        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.

          I do not have picture of it but i learnt from other forum that only difference was a small bevel cut on the bottom of the extractor to allow firing of grenades with the rifle.

            Billy Pyle had drawings that showed the difference in one of his "Garand Stand Report" newsletters

              As far as I remember the only difference was the small cut on the claw. I have about 40 or so loose NOS M14 extractors and they all have it.
