The back should be open, that's perfectly normal. The little protrusion to the rear is normal too.

Is there plenty of tension on the extractor claw?

if you look at the front face is the tip of the spring SLIGHTLY behind the edge of the claw & in full contact with it forcing it to the center?

If when you cycle it slowly with a fired cartridge or case does it "withdraw" on the last mm or so of forward travel, then reinsert, grasping the case rim at the very beginning or bolt opening?

Yeah the bolt extracts fine and the claw has good tension. It is placed just behind as well. It also grabs very nicely. 

The only thing I was was worried about was this: I have seen some pictures of bolts from behind, and there seems to be a bit of metal under the spring. Almost like a little keeper for the folded part of the spring. 

Mine does not seem to have it, so I thought it might be broken haha
