I have a request to the gunsmiths or those with actual experience with this...my question stemming from another discussion but not related to original topic (related to BRNO ZKK but applying to any Mauser style extractor), so transported here: Snapping claw extractor over the rim on hand chambered round......some do so easily, some are harder to do it with, some cannot do it at all. All depending on the amount of bevel surface of the claw. Should it snap over the rim? I like the feature and never had an issue, but I rarely do it. Is it good for the extractor? Probably not. Can you break it this way? Most likely. Does beveling it make it weaker? I would think so. Does it weaken it to a point of making it susceptible to stripping and not extracting a stuck case? Depends. What I would like to see is some broken extractors and some stripped ones where the damage was due to these conditions...they must exist but I have not seen them. And those that happened, was it due to metal fatigue of 1 too many snaps over the rim? Or the bevel not being deep or angled enough in the first place and thus over stressing the extractor? Those that were beveled too much and stripped... was it just that (not enough material left on the edge) or will any beveled claw eventually fail to extract? When I look at amount of metal grabbing the case vs extractor actually designed to snap over the rim (like the good old Sako one for example), is the beveled Mauser one really weaker? Thank you!
