My 47 in cal .223 will double tap sometimes. I have read that this is due to a weak spring in the bolt. Does anyone know where I can find a heavier spring for the bolt? Thanks

Maybe I am missing something here, but the sear should catch the hammer. What does a "weak spring in the bolt" have to do with it?

This is where I found that info. Click here

84-S AKs also have a nasty tendency to do double taps due to a weak spring in the bolt. This can easily be fixed by replacing it with a higher quality spring.

Er, I meant disconnector.

I also don't see how a recoil spring can cause a double tap? To me it would cause feed or ejection problems. A worn or missing disconnector spring would most likely cause this.

The 84-s has a spring loaded firing pin.

If this spring is broken,missing, or worn out - the firing pin may contact the primer of a
chambered round without the trigger being pulled.

When this happens during firing (as the bolt chambers a round )
it is called a "SLAMFIRE"

This is BAD JU JU ! As it can cause you to fire multiple rounds unexpectedly.


I suggest you go to a good Hardware store and try to find a matching spring
( take the bolt with you )

DO NOT fire your rifle again until you replace the spring!

I had sn 84S-1 do that all the time. When it was not doing doubles or triples I could see a heavy impression on the primers of rounds that got successfully chambered. I got a different spring for the firing pin and it eliminated the problem. Or just use Wolf for its harder primers.
