recently my wasr has been ejecting at 3 o clock, 10-15ft

i think it used to eject at 2 o'clock

3 oclock sounds about right and 10-15 feet for a wasr is just how it should be. Sounds like its functioning perfict

I expect this kind of question from an AR guy hehe. It has been my experience that Ak's will throw brass in varying locations. U.S. armorers seem just as concerned with grouping brass as they do shots. Its a service rifle man, or at least a derivative of one. The goal of the ejector is not to thow the casing to a certain location but instead to clear the way for the next round. The higher the ROF the stronger the extractor must be. Given that the AK is built with looser tolerances, this is quite normal.

FIRE EM UP MAN!!!

being hit with brass is all part of going to the range.

depends on the range.

around here, getting told that "you assault rifle idiots are gonna get guns banned for us law-abiding people!" is the norm. that's why i've started going to the state-owned wildlife management areas...nobody around and target shooting is allowed. they even have a nice tall berm to use as a backstop.

My range has nets you can hang between the lanes. The funny part is that one end usually has the AR/AK guys and the other end has the geezers with the bolt guns.

Rule #1 at the Firing Line: If you are a bolt gunner or bench rest shooter, head to the far left. If you are an EBR Cowboy, head to the far right.

FAMAS rifles and Beretta Sotrms can throw this formula into a tizzy, but for the most part it works.

I've made people bleed with my CETME. That thing is outright dangerous to anyone at 3 o'clock. The AK atleast tosses it up and comes down on said bolt gunners...

Cover fire on the right flank!

And in the middle you have me with my Krinkov... surrounded by people from both sides of the range hammering me with questions instead of letting me just shoot.

When I go to the range with friend I somehow alway seem to sit to the left of them.

Let's see:

Glock = straight up and over your head about 3-4 feet.
USP = 45 degrees up and 3:00
AK = 45 degrees, 3:00, and about 4-5 benches down (I can hit 8 if they bounce in the roof joists)
ARs = 1:30, about 5-6 feet in front of me.
9mm AR = 5:00 about 15 feet
K-31 = Straight up about 10 feet in the air
CA Kadet = 3:00...flat, fast, and spinning


Bottom line, brass is ejecting at the range. It's part of it. Just wear a tall collar.
