    With the pandemic raging, I wanted to take a minute to tell all my bros on S-12 to hang in there and don't let the fake news get you down. We'll get this licked. Stay safe.

    One thing this has, I hope, shown this country is that you can't depend on a hostile communist regime for many of the essential items a country needs to thrive and survive. China is not our friend and the faster we divest ourselves from dependence on them the better. Praying for all here and our country.

    I trust nothing about all that we have heard about this. I think it is the most significant 'slight of hand' trick every played on American citizens. They are trying to keep us distracted from something else or they are setting us up to be accepting of something we would otherwise never allow.

    I think we've had quite enough of Chinese curses for awhile. All counrties affected by this escaped Chinese bioweapon known as Covid 19 need to tally up the total cost of this pandemic as close as they can and subtract it from any loans they have with China, as well as use it pay off any money owed to them for goods and/or services, then bill them for the balance, payable immediately.

    Still able to get filters for my mask around here. I'm running a P100 rated for acid vapor. Entertainment business is tits-up. Snagged the last 3 boxes of auto match, and the buckshot and AR/AK are gone. Glad I put up 4500 in 5.56 strippers when I did. AK's and S-12's are on hot standby. Repacked the freezer while everyone was fighting over toilet paper and bottled water. Won't be too bad if this goes six months, but will need resupply if it goes longer. Don't want to hit the bunker if I can help it. Most of the stocks are holding pretty good as they're in foods and paper, so we have money. Mom is so glad I'm at home with her right now! She'd be real scared if she was alone.

    I don't know what to say. Really. All these people hoarding should have their asses kicked. Literally. This shit is just unreal. Yes, China should be held accountable for this shit. Just as with the other shit sandwich viruses that came from them. But they will not. China's grasp is far too powerful. Now, as for the US, we CAN come away from this with our economic heads out of our asses IF we learn to start cutting reliance on them. We shall see. But I believe to many Politicians as well as Business's have deep pockets with them. AND I hope the media gets it in their ass for all of these maniacal and relentless BS reporting they are doing. Stay safe, stay smart and this too shall pass.

    TBH, you'd be so much better off practicing "rock and lock" on a closed bolt. The bolt does NOT have to be open to load a magazine. Don't be intimidated doing a full stripping. It's really very easy. There are plenty of videos on Youtube on disassembly of an AK.

    On a better note... a simple loogie out the window makes those pesky tailgaters back off fast! Would you believe I just saw two kids out riding their bicycles? Un-fucking believable. State-wide stay-at-home order, and they're out without a care in the world. I guess they inherited their stupidity from their parents.

    As I said, we could have come out of this much wiser and less dependent on China, but after seeing this atrocity, I doubt it. Truly perverse and disgusting how THEY spend our money.

    Wife sent me out for milk because she needs it to take some of her medication. Got to the local store before 8:00 am and a 2 block line was evident. Got in line and a person from New York City told me to get 6 ft away from him. The funny thing was he was only 3 ft away from the guy in front of him. I told him NO! just to give him a moment of helplessness. I then told him I will give you your space but you need to get a grip. If you are that fearful about getting sick, you should not be here in line. Beaches, Bars ,Food ect all closed.. The Snow birds are not happy . As for me, I have everything with the exception of Case lube which is coming in a few days. I will tumble some 556 today. and do a little painting on the house. You all be well, keep your cool and (Act do not react) . Home is away the best place to be , because that is where the wife gives me clear direction.

    I work retail at a supply store, also an "essential business." It's been pandelerium for the past week! Every single day of the last seven we have FAR exceeded sales from last year's Black Friday. My days haven't changed at all- go to work, go to the store. We did get a pick up order from a restaurant we would normally eat-in, still good food. I do make sure to wash my hands thoroughly before heading home, at least. I certainly don't want my 80-yr-old Mom to catch it somehow. Her health is generally good, but we share a house now because she has had some issues in the past. I also carry far more regularly than I used to, and have my lil' Shockwave in the car now, too. I wish there was some kind of speed-loader for it, though.

    China should be billed for this. The ENTIRE cost for the ENTIRE world, and FORCED to pay, no matter how many generations it takes. One way to force them to pay would be to subtract it from any loans they've made to countries infected by their runaway bio-weapon. ...as a penalty enact a 100% embargo on all goods leaving China. Let 'em dry up and blow away.

    I hope nations gather to make China pay for their recklessness, and make them "lose face" somehow. I also hope this hasn't been some sort of trial balloon, and the Chicoms will release something worse after having seen how well corona affected the world. If so, I bet their thinking is "what's a few thousand lives when we have at least a billion people?" I hope this wasn't an attempt at some sort of biological version of Pearl Harbor.

    if you are getting hung up about 1/2" before complete close, look at the feed ramp or trunnion. does it have metal on metal rubbings? might need to polish the ramp. a bullet guide may be too thick for a smooth transition of the bolt carrier.
  27. 1 point
    I agree, send the gun back and let them fix or replace. Locking while move the bolt carrier back might be uneven rails...Not positive that is the issue, I purchased a Saiga and one rail was installed incorrectly by the factory. This caused the bolt carrier to jam up when the carrier was pulled toward the rear of the gun by hand. If you have access to calipers or a friend who is a machinist ask them to take some measurements to verify the position is correct. Only my 2 cents

    Now I understand. Have you fired a mag through it? Does it cycle fine once it chambers a round and fires? Still think it is a hang up between the bolt carrier and hammer. With that being said I have had more than one firearm from Classic Arms needing work. I have stopped doing business with them after the second. I would send it back and let them fix it.
  29. 1 point
    That's not me in the video. The bolt gets intermittently hung when pulling it back. Sometimes it flies freely, sometimes it just gets binded somehow about 1/2 inch back from the chamber face.It looks like most people have problems with the bolt sliding forward. My problem is when I'm pulling it back.
  30. 1 point
    It would appear you babied the first round when releasing the bolt forward. On the second attempt you racked it back and let it fly, which is what you should do. I don't see a problem here. If the firearm has a Tapco G2 trigger installed, which is what I would expect from a Classic Saiga conversion, the bolt ride over the hammer can sometimes be severe. This can allow the bolt to hang on the hammer. If it does not go into full battery when you pull back and let it fly, I would profile to hammer until it does. Just my 2cents.
  31. 1 point
    Is the chamber clear? Could there be a broken chamber flag stub in the barrel getting in the way? You can try taking out the bolt and carrier and looking for abnormal wear or excessive missing paint. If you don't see anything obviously wrong, reassemble, pull back the charging handle and let it fly forward at full speed several times(don't ride it forward). Does it still hang up? Dissamble and look for new wear on the bolt, carrier, rails etc. Feel free to post photos or videos here as this community is very knowledgeable and helpful but it's hard to give suggestions without seeing what's going on.

    chris recommends riveting the guide, going to send the saiga down to him, seems like a nice guy

    To add to the above, yeah, you may just wanna cut a little piece of pipe for the bullet guide and have a gunsmith weld it in there instead. May cost a little more, but you have a little more security if its welded vs a red locktite screw, and the replacement piece would completely cover the hole you drilled. but if you wanna fiddle around with different screws instead, that will probably work just as well.
  35. 1 point
    Just to add a different viewpoint, you may also want to consider eating the cost of taking it to a good gunsmith. After the error, you're now out of the realm of the standard conversion and may want to reevaluate the risk/cost of having someone with experience take it from here. I'm not suggesting that you aren't capable of handling this yourself, and if you pull it off you'll have a great feeling, but if something goes wrong you may wish you sought professional help. Not speaking to your case specifically, but I'm always amazed that people are more than willing to put a $100 do-dad onto a rifle without blinking an eye but would screw up a gun with a dremel tool to save $50.00 on a gunsmith. Part of the fun of AKs is the fitting, filing, smoothing and improving, but it's also important to know your limitations. Items that are easily replaced are one thing but if you screw up trunnions, receivers and barrels repairs will get insanely expensive quickly. Again, I'm not saying that you definitely need to have a professional handle this but I wanted to suggest you consider it as an option.

    Keep your head-up! This stuff happens to all of us. You could use a 6MM tap, which is .014 of an inch smaller than a 6MM .236. Easier to find a 1/4/-20 screws than metric screws in most cases. You can grind down the head (from the hex hole side of the screw) on a socket head cap screw. Grind the top of the screw where you use the allen wrench to tighten the screw. Leave enough material to tighten the screw and the head thick enough to hold the guide in place. Not much pressure, just used as a loading ramp... Drill hole to .201 are slightly larger to use 1/4 inch hardware.

    I believe 3/16 screws are obsolete and were replaced with 10-XX screws. The closest size which is a 10-32 screw requires a number 21 (.1590) drill bit which is way undersize since your hole is already at 3/16 (.1875). No screw in the 10-XX to 12-XX would work. Your best bet would be to go up to a 1/4-20 machine screw which uses a #7 drill (.2010) Another option is to use a metric screw with a drill size closest to your existing hole. Another option is to use a rivet inserted from the bottom of the trunnion and bucking plates to fill the space between the trunnion and the receiver. Then crush the rivet from the top. Another not so good option is to weld the bullet guide in. Im sure there are other options but this is what i can think of. Hope this helps

    They're junk. Install a bullet guide and buy Combloc surplus magazines. You can spend the same and less on higher quality steel magazines. That's just my opinion tho.

    The gas block metal is not too hard and is easy to file. Be patient and take your time. I alternated between holding the gas block and moving the file, and holding the file and moving the gas block. After the corners were formed, I switched to a flat file. I do not recommend using a rotary tool or Dremel. When you are done, the hole in the gas block should look something like this. Make sure both the gas tube and barrel bores are free from any rough edges. IMPORTANT! Ensure you remove any/all metal shaving and any other contaminants from the gas block before attempting reassembly. CONT'D

    Pauly, We used to have a good working relationship and I have spent about 10K a year with you for your work. Excellent as it was once upon a time. However: It is now going on over a year since you cashed my checks and told me 3 months for the work. You have ignored my lawyer and although you have made promises you have not delivered on any of them. You also have refused to return my unfinished work using the excuse that you would then have committed fraud. Well you have committed fraud and a host of other crimes. This excuse no longer flies. We now have a warrant out for your arrest after you told my local sheriff that you are out of business and gave him the same crap you have given me in emails over the past year. You have committed a felony, several in fact, as my loss has now been over 11,000 dollars in useless guns and the 3700 plus dollars of my money that you have taken. I am offering you an out. If you return my 9 bolts and carriers and fire control groups I will forgive the cashed checks and the 3700 that you have basically stolen from me. I'll even send you a pre paid label for the return shipment. I do not care if any work was done on my stuff or not as we now do it ourselves. If I do not hear from you and have my things returned before I leave for the coast then I am marching my ass into the Marion County Sheriff's office and having you prosecuted on felony charges. We have printed all the cancelled checks and the emails full of lies from you over the past several months. It was enough to issue an arrest warrant here so I believe it will be fine in your state. Knowing your reaction from your past responses you will probably delete this post but I am copying it and posting it in the forums that you have no control over if my stuff is not forthcoming. That way everyone will know what kind of a person you have become. The ball is in your court.
