Thanks again!

Hi,

We are only using Wolf in our AK's. It's the 122/123 FMJ grey steel case ammo.

Well, I guess the only thing left to break would be a barrel because we've experienced broken bolts, stocks receivers and both front and rear trunions.  

The lower portion of the carrier that keeps the bolt in place cracked from the main body earlier today. This is a Bulgarian-made  5.56mm "Krinkov" imported by Arsenal, Inc here in Las Vegas. I will get records of the date is came on the line but it's at the very least 12 months old. This weapon doesn't have any other issues or malfunction listed on the maintenance log and has been unremarkable up to this point.

The strange thing about this break is that the we don't actually know when it broke other than when it was cleaned four days ago, there was no evidence of a fracture or crack in that area. The weapon didn't come off the line because of a malfunction but rather for a weekly cleaning and inspection. The durability of the AK is pretty amazing considering this weapon suffered a catastrophic failure of the carrier and continued to function until it was disassembled for cleaning.

One would expect the weapon to have functioning issues if the portion of the carrier that is used to push rounds from the magazine and into the chamber was completely cracked.

Did you guys put the sear trip in by building a weld? Heat issue?

Never seen that failure on an AK.

Awesome stuff Ron thanks for all your posts.

Again I gotta say huge thanks for the most informative thread ever, it's value cannot be overstated as there is no way I could ever afford to shoot enough rounds to learn this stuff on my own.

Ron if you have a paypal account please send me the address as i'd like to buy y'all a beer.

Definitely coming to Vegas this summer and will be stopping by for an afternoon of happy-switch goodness.

Posted this in the other thread, but cross posted here. I know you had C39 issues, but I thought I read you bought some C39V2s, and supposedly, those have addressed the issues that the other C39 had.

Checking in with you on the round count and condition of the C39V2, milled AKs. MAC and AKOU seem to think they're very good and they've been holding up really well for them. I bought one for my son a month ago but have been too sick to go pick it up. Hoping I can make it this week or my dealer will just bring it to me. He was coming down this weekend but got tied up with family issues.

Thanks.

The round count of the C39V2 is still very low in comparison to a standard WASR or the original Polish Model 1960 (Century's first milled gun on Polish kits). It doesn't get used much because people tend to choose the classic wood-dressed AK47.

Glad to see that the WASRs are doing as well as they seem to be.  I have one on order from Atlantic.  Now way will I ever be able to give it the abuse it gets in Las Vegas. The ironic thing is that they are the least expensive and one of the most hated AKs on the market.  Looks like the WASR is as reliable and durable as much more expensive ones

Licensed post sample machine  guns. I'll assume they are licensed as a manufacturer, which allows them to make any MG.

We have one that we call the Flamethrower but it doesn't get much use. There's no stock on it and my staff only allows certain individuals to use. If you've never fired a gun, there about 99.99% chance you aren't firing the Flamethrower.

I will have to get pics tomorrow when I get there in the morning but one of the AK's suffered a triple fracture of the rear portion of the receiver. We had cracks run down from the upper rear trunion rivet down to towards the bottom of the receiver bilaterally AND the rear trunion suffered from a crack down the center of it. I don't know if this particular AK had the recoil spring replaced yet but all AK's were in the process of getting recoil spring replaced (as well as MP5's, Thompson's, M3 Grease Guns and MG42/MG3's).

I know you mentioned that milled receivers outlast stamped receivers, but other than that, any specific issues with Arsenal SAM7R?  Anything breaking or replaced?

The top cover came off while firing. The RSO knows that top covers just don't pop off so he grabbed a new weapon (so the customer wouldn't panic about that happening again) and brought it back to the armorers after the customer left.

Ron,

In your opinion, which would be a better firearm?  WASR or Norinco MAK 90 (debanned)?  To me, it seems that the Norinco is just a heavier more nicely finished variant and the WASR is bare bones, not too pretty,  but tough as nails. Which one would you trust more on the firing line?
Link Posted: 8/26/2016 10:36:06 AM EDT
Last year you posted about critical Npap failures where receivers were splitting and you dropped them all from the line and got rid of them.  In a recent video interview with one of your armorers, he was talking about how you replace furniture on Npaps because the wood stock breaks quickly.  

Can we assume you're back to using Npaps, and aren't having the receiver issues you had last year?

I noticed that as well. He meant to say WASR's. We haven't put any NPAP's back on the line because we haven't had to at this point. We still have 20+ WASR's new in the box but if they corrected the problem, I don't have a problem putting them on the line. Sean was a bit nervous because he didn't know he was going to be doing the video interview and all of the videos that we have posted on our Youtube page.. have PLENTY of take-out's because of that.

Funny you should bring this up. We've had WASR's go the full 100,000 round count without losing trunion rivets but we've had to Norinco's lose their rivets. At the same time, we haven't lost any Norinco's to cracked receivers.

That really clears things up, thanks.

For what it's worth, he didn't look nervous to me, well done on the interview!  Going into that blind I would've done a whole lot worse, that's a lot of information to pull up on the spot from memory.

Been following all the Battlefield Las Vegas threads - just fantastic information!!  Thanks so much for taking the time to post!  Really appreciated.

One quick question on ammo.  You mention that you're using Wolf steel case ammo (in the grey cases).  Are the WASR's that have gone 100K rounds done so with these bi-metallic rounds?  I ask as similar bimetallic rounds can chew through AR barrels (throats, gas holes) in 10K-20K rounds.  

If so, those are some durable eastern block chrome lined barrels!!

To be fair, comparing 5.56 to the significantly slower 7.63x39 isn't a good comparison from a wear perspective.
