Well a few weeks ago i picked up one of those new AK63Ds that century is putting together.
the milled reciever underfolder. The first range trip went well, eighty rounds no hiccups. couldnt hit anything but i cant seem to do very good with any AK. before firing i did a soso cleaning job. the firing pin moved freely so i did not disassemble the bolt.
on the second range trip after about eighty rounds i started to get light primer strikes. and after looking at my casings i seen alot of punctured primers. the firing pin was sticking and when i disassembled the bolt i found several pieces of the punctured primers. but it was actualy pretty clean.
oh and on the second trip i had a vortex sparc mounted on a cheap plastic gas tube cover. groups improved , my best 100yd 5 shot group measured 3 7/8 inches and best 5 shot group at fifty measured 1 1/4.
did a thourough cleaning job.
third range trip. more punctured primers right away.
pulled the bolt and replaced the complete bolt and pin with a Chinese one from a MAK90.
after that around 100 rounds with no problems, no punctures at all.
The ammo was a mix of tulammo, wolf and MFS, which is basicly silver bear. happens with all three.
so my AK experience is limited to chicom varients. this one is built from hungarian parts and has a firing pin unlike what im used to.
it is thicker and round at the end unlike the thin flat ended chinese ones.
could the problem be the firing pin or the bolt itself? next range trip ill try the chinese pin in the hungarian bolt.
any help is appreciated :unsure:
