  • Extractor
    • Extractors can get worn out.
    • Keep the chamber area clean!
  • Ammo
    • Quality ammunition makes a big difference.
  • Lubrication
    • Be sure to read your owner’s manual and lubricate on all points where it is needed.
    • Understand the difference between oil and grease.

The same principles can be applied to an AK47, M14, or other rifles as well.
