    hMMM..., Why would a brand new Geiessel extractor spring goes WRONG...?? I am just a junior level on these AR kind of things.

    so, the colt AR15A4 extractor spring will fit the SDP Geiessel/11.5/556??

    Q. Why would a brand new Geiessele(SDP) AR extractor goes WRONG? Also, the Colt AR15A4 extractor spring fit the Geiessele?

    Yes, the Colt or Sprinco extractor springs will fit just fine. Just make sure you install it correctly. Youtube is your friend here.

    It happens. I had a new upper from a very reputable manufacturer fail to extract once. I changed the extractor spring with a new BCM spring, and it never happened again.

    Was it reloaded ammo? Before ordering and replacing parts, I would throw another bolt carrier group in the gun and see if that fixes it. Then you can pass that on to Geissele and they look into your bolt (for example).

    Why it could go wrong... Because shit happens. I doubt "G" makes their own springs. Chances are good that they have the same source as Colt. The difference between a good rifle and a bad one is pretty much QC and customer service. Almost without exceptions AR parts are interchangeable between manufacturers.

    At some point they probably figured out you were not qualified to diagnose the problem. No offence but it doesn't sound like you are. Why would they tell you to send it back without trying what they advise if they think it is their problem? Not a lot of cred when you don't remember what ammo caused the problem.

    I think that would be a fair statement… I’d already said that I am a junior on the AR field of expertises and that is why I would be on this kind of “net” networking to find out that I am going crazy!! 😎
