I need a wider pic but I'll take a shot. Carbine extractor plunger and spring? Plus an extractor spring!

Yup, springs were found inside of one another.

Came from an early IBM I cut bolt. Very strange.

Speculated to be "home" work. Will provide better pics later as the above are at 10x magnification.

Send me a cigar! The tight shot didn't help me but I took a "ed-u-macated" guess.

Plunger is some sort of very light metal. The whole thing is definitely not USGI. Drove my armorer (and myself) nuts trying to put it back together. The bolt tool didn't work very well since the spring doesn't push back.

I've used "coaxial" springs before to increase the range of adjustment for adjustable trigger pull on an old Ruger Model 77. It's really tricky but if you get the right free length of the stronger spring you can get a range of force of a few ounces to over 5 pounds without changing springs. I have no idea why this would help much with an extractor though. It's not like it's adjustable.

The light color and rough finished threw me. It's NOT a USGI part for sure.

Correct again. Home work parts, I guess. Smaller spring was found inside the larger one. Springs are useless. Not sure why someone would use those parts. A non collector probably would have corrected. Would love to know how they got there. Found in an IBM flat bolt.

Some people don't like to have any pars left over, so put them somewhere.
