Any one sitting on a 308 extractor? Any where to purchase one that isn't part of group buy? I PM'd MrGreen and sent an email to Molot, just looking for a oem replacement or upgrade. My extractor broke after 5 rounds of brass, so pissed off. I've been sitting on the gun for a year, finally get it out to the range and had to put it back in the bag.

Thanks!

I bought an extractor from Mr Green and it don't seem to work in my gun for some reason. No one else seemed to have problems so idk if it's the extractor or my gun. If you wanted to take a chance on it i might be willing to sell it since i cant use it.

I'll report back after it's installed and tested.

So, I was able to find a thread on another forum where a person was able to get broken extractor replaced by WPA. WPA offers a lifetime warranty on all VEPR rifles they import, including VEPR rifles imported by TGI prior to WPA importing them directly. I called the number for WPA and they referred me to a contact that deals with VEPR rifles specifically. I left this person a voicemail and I am waiting to hear back. I will let you know where I get.

Interesting, Mine was imported by WPA. I wonder if you can just call them up and order a extractor directly from them? Or if they just strip parts off other guns for warranty work because Molot don't supply them parts?

Well, good news and bad news.

Good: My MrGeen extractor works great.

Bad: The VEPR contact from WPA hasn't returned my call. I'll try again on Monday.

Other: I am sending my damaged extractor to a friend of mine who manufactures parts for firearms and he's going to see if he can replicate it and possible improve it.

Also, Atlantic Firearms let me know that they have attempted to get parts and it's still a no go.
