  1. So it seems the Wolf spring did the job. Shot 30 rounds of brass cased IMI without any problems. I did notice the recoil wasnt as hard as it used to be. Thanks for all the help guys. ✌️ 👍 Will report back after going a bit more often.
  2. Ok I'm back and motivated, havent been on this thread since my last posts and havent had time to get to the range. I'll be ordering a Wolff XP spring and give that a try, I might even try and modify the dust cover, that slowmotion video from Mancat sure shows how the shells could get back in the receiver. I'll report back with my findings soon!
  3. Im sure you mean the extractor claw, I have taken the bolt apart and cleaned it twice after 3 range days. I changed the extractor spring yesterday and will test it on tuesday (ak-74 spring, is a bit longer). Cleaned the hole gas system as good as I could and everything runs smoothly without getting stuck. Charging the gun manually does not cause a FTE but im sure its due to the fact that I cannot manually create the same force like the gas does, although the shells still get a nick on the rim from the ejector hitting them. Is it possible the extractor spring is to strong? It's not easy to p
  4. Here are some pics of the bolt and ejector
  5. Today was Range Day. I got myself some steel cased Tulammo and some Lithuanian Military ball. I started off with the Lithuanian ammo and loaded up my Promag and the Bakelite with 10 rounds each. Out of the 20 rounds I got 3 FTE's Notice how this case flipped and got stuck but yet it has the AK dent !? I then loaded up the Steel cased Tulammo and had 0 FTE's out of 20 rounds. Looking at the cases one can notice they have quite the gash where the ejector hits, exspecially on the brass cases. The gun must be so overgassed that the ejector just cuts through them.
  6. Im using the standard 10 round mags without a buffer. I've got a spare carrier spring and have changed them inbetween shooting, so I dont think its that. I cant get my head around the fact that the shells have the ak dent on them, this must indicate that the shells are on their way out or not? I have manually reloaded to check if the ejector was worn or faulty but didnt have any problems doing so. Im going to get some different ammo and test without the dustcover on and get someone to film it. If the gas hole is plugged hiw could i clean it? Thanks for all the feedback so far
  7. I went to the range today to see if the dustcover would fix the FTE with brass casing aswell... Out of 10 shots I had 3 FTE. I'm going to get some different brands of ammo soon and test if it is just due to the brand or generally brass casings. Must say though, with the 52gr bullets my accuracy is quite good, just hard to find that weight here in Germany, not many brands(Remington,Hornady and Sellier & Bellot
