Just wondering, would a loose bolt carrier affect the rifle's accuracy?
Does the looseness(up & down) of the carrier affect the lock up of the bolt?
I figure the cartridges from the magazine is pushing up against the carrier, which makes contacts with the bolt.
Would like to know if the looseness of the carrier with vertical wobble could affect the bolt lock up which might affect accuracy?

How does the bolt lock up?

I'd be more concerned with headspace

By the time the bolt carrier begins to move rearward the bullet has already left the barrel.

The bolt locks up just fine and seems to be the same comparing to other SLR107 rifles I have.
The opap have a tighter bolt and carrier lock up than all of my 107.

I am just wondering whether the wobbly carrier in an AK rifle might affect its accuracy or not.

I figured as such.
However, the cartridges from the magazine is pushing up against the carrier, which makes contacts with the bolt.
Would like to know if the looseness of the carrier with vertical wobble could affect the bolt lock up which might affect accuracy?
