They aren't.
Glock-factory OEM- MiMed extractor - cost for them to produce that part,we will most likely find out,guess 2.00.

Apex- replacement extractor-tool steel-EDM machined,comes with SLB extractor depressor plunger and EDP spring.

Again we will most likely find out the cost to produce ,if one understands the methods used to produce the two parts,the apex part is more costly to produce.

EDM is a more costly,precise part produced of solid steel rather than powdered metal with a plastic binder,heated.
I know which of the two will wear better,hold up longer.
