So can the extractor have too firm a grip on a cartridge and have a detrimental effect on ejection and/or performance of the system? I'm thinking of BCM specifically, and their use of the firmer spring and the o-ring. Being BCM, I can't see them offering something that would hurt the performance.
No, it really doesn't cause any issues. There are a lot of people running the whole kit, and it works. I was given a bunch of free ones from BCM at my last EAG Tactical course and I've installed them on other rifles, including my brother's Daniel Defense BCG which has a 3-coil extractor spring (WTF Daniel Defense?!?).
I believe that Noveske came out and said to not mix that o-ring with the 5-coil extractor, but everyone else kind of ignored them and has never really had anything happen as a result. I run it on my bolts, and it gets great extraction.

On a side note, I'm a little frustrated with Larue. I made a purchase close to 3k and they won't even leave the A2 flash off the rifle. Their response was they don't modify order and build a "complete" rifle (unless I want to switch a muzzle device that they carry). I plan on installing my battle comp so I have no need for the A2. They informed me the muzzle device is held on by green loctite, which seems to be impossible to remove. I'm trying to convince them to just install the A2 without applying the loctite. Such a pain in the ass for such a minute request...
LaRue are a bunch of weirdos in this issue. They don't ship the gun with any parts you replace with other parts, like getting the SureFire brake and then they don't give you the A2. Not only that, but they don't pro-rate the gun with the options you get. It's annoying, but LaRue has a tendency to do weird stuff like that.
