    Ejecting Problem

    So I´ve had my Saiga for 3 Months now and i keep getting shells stuck between the bolt because they aren't getting thrown out properly(roughly every 10th shot). The first 200 rounds I didn't get this problem. Iv'e tried all kinds of different ammo from 55gr to 62gr and 63gr (PMC, WOLF, Tulammo, Geco, TopShot). Im using 2 10round Izhmash Magazines. Any Ideas?

    Ejecting Problem

    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 push it by hand and when charging the gun by hand and guiding the bolt and carrier by hand into the foward position it will sometimes not be able to pass the rim, i have to give it a extra push. While shooting this does'nt occur. I will send cobra a PM. Thanks for the help so far.

    Ejecting Problem

    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. The steel cases didnt have a gash but a noticeable dent from the ejector. What do you guys think?

    Ejecting Problem

    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

    Ejecting Problem

    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

    Ejecting Problem

    Hello again, after years of just accepting my ejection problem I started looking into it again. I went to the range and shot about 20 rounds and got 4-5 FTE, exactly as before, stovepiping and even getting stuck in the far left of the receiver. My extractor did not seem to be to short or worn off, my bolt wasnt that loose eihter. Looking at the shells that got stuck I noticed it was weird that they had the typical ak dent, so they must of been on their way out but bounced back in. I loaded a Mag and just charged the gun by hand without the dust cover on, everytime the bullets would eject the same no hangups. With the dustcover on however they would somtimes just kind of flop out, the ejection pattern was random. My conclusion was that the shells are probably ejecting and hitting the dust cover in a weird way and therefor getting flung back into the receiver. I bought myself a soviet ribbed dustcover, when comparing to the factory one, the opening was a bit longer on the soviet one. Im not entirely sure if this is really the problem, but when going to the range I shot 40 rounds without any jams. I was using steel case ammo(Tulammo) so I'll have to test it out on the brass case aswell. But so far so good. I'll keep this thread updated in case anyone else has a similar issue.
