  2. Anybody? Anybody? The decision will be appealed to the entire D.C. circuit court where democrats are in the majority. These votes always go 5-4 on party lines and this will be no exception. The supreme court has already upheld obamacare 2 years ago.

    chaos quad rail tech info

    Hi fraserfab and welcome to the forum. We have found over time through our customers, dealers, gunsmiths and our own experiences that FTE's after installing a Chaos rail are generally caused by one of two things. Either the weapon is very near FTE already and the rail is acting as a stiffing bar and amplifying the already near FTE or the shells are striking something upon exiting the chamber. In your case you need to get your rail setup on your weapon properly (rail parallel and rear rail locking down) that alone could be causing you FTE's. If your rail is not sitting parallel to the barrel that will have to be corrected. Material can be removed either from the gas block or the rail, FYI it is easier to alter the rail .To make sure you're rail is sitting parallel to the barrel use a straight edge resting on the center of bottom rail in line with the center of the barrel, then measure the distance between the straight edge and the barrel, it should not exceed over 1/16" in 8" If you have removed to much material from your back plate you can purchase a replacement back plate through our customer service. If you need more detailed help you can reach our tech support @ 812 250 4919 ext. 100 Monday through Friday 10 am - 4 pm CST Cameron, Thank you for your advise, I decided to remove material from the gas block to level the bottom rail section to the barrel. It is very close to being perfectly true. After that I decided to sand down the rails where the bolt rides down to 600 grit and then blued them. After these small modifications the gun seems to be running great! I went out to the range this weekend and put 150 rounds Winchester bulk downrange, and I only had 2 failure to ejects. In my mind it is still not perfect, but I think the effects of installing the rail have been nullified. Now that the system is working as it should, I will need to order some of your HK style sights for the rail. Along with the sights I will need a couple of the nylon tipped set screws for the dust cover. In testing I did not want to loctite anything until I knew the gun was functioning correctly. Unfortunately I lost both side screws. Do you have replacements available?

    I am having this same problem. Fail to eject with top Titan rail on. Looking down the front the rail seems to be centered over the gas block so I don't think it is canted. I will not be drilling a hole in my rail. Just FYI it runs great with the top rail removed. I am using Winchester and Estate bulk. Also the bottom rail is not parallel the barrel causing the hinged section being at a different angle that the front section. I have trimmed the rear hole to fit per instructions and there is not enough material there to fix the angle problem that way. I could take a die grinder to the rail, but would rather not. Is there any other way?

    New guy drum problems

    Lets face it, these guns are not exactly light weight. So the little extra weight does not bother me. The fact that it doesn't cycle because of it is what bothers me. I just got it cycling and put the rail on and no go. It's a little frustrating. I have not reinstalled the rail to see if it is obstructing the gas exhaust port. That is what I have found so far on the forum as far as the cause of their fte's. The lower also does not line up right. It is angled down significantly towards the front, causing the 2 pieces to not line up, making it pretty much impossible to sight in for slugs. So that will need to be addressed as well.

    I did not reduced spring tension, I INCREASED it by one rotation. This fixed my problem of not feeding fast enough. I rapid fired as fast as I could while staying on target. I will try some bump firing this weekend.

    Ejection problem is fixed, removed chaos rail and fired 100 rounds of Winchester bulk pack. 60 of them through the drum. No problems, fed and ejected all 100 without a hiccup. The barrel does get awful hot without a hand guard. Luckily I had some gloves. I am not sure I want to keep the Chaos titan rail so if anybody wants it, make me an offer

    Just got home from the range, and am pleased to say that the drum worked perfectly! Thanks to Mr. Hopkins for the repair advice. Unfortunately my S12 does not eject since installing my new Chaos titan rail. These sure are never ending, but fun project guns!

    Thanks. When I removed follower, I counted revolutions to unwind completely. It was just over 2. So I added 1 revolution and will try to make it to the range tomorrow.

    Thank you for that. Can you tell me how many revolutions yours needed to run reliably?

    New guy drum problems

    I think I got lucky with my drum it needed very little fitting. It locked in right away but was a little tight so I filed it a little bit for ease of insertion, but it locked in on first try. As far as the type of FTF I am not sure, the first round fires and ejects just fine but the bolt closes about half way on top of the next round, it does not even start to feed. It is like the drum is binding or something causing the bolt to close faster that the drum can feed. I will try to get out to the range tomorrow and will take some video and pics

    New guy drum problems

    Hey guys, this will be my first post here. I have been lurking for a while, and used your recommendations for buying a MD arms 20 round drum for my Saiga 12. Unfortunately this drum does not work for me. It fails to feed everything from bulk pack to slugs. The gun works great with my 12 round stick mags, and cycles bulk pack shells very well. I am wondering if anyone else has had feeding issues with their drum and maybe someone has a fix for it. I have tried contacting MD Arms with no reply. I have had my eye on the Tac 47 magwell, but haven't pulled the trigger on it because I love the idea of this drum. Anybody have any ideas?
