Gas Piston Length from carrier?
Daedalus82 posted a topic in Saiga .308Hey guys so I recently acquired and installed a kns adjustable gas piston for my saiga .308. I installed it but since Saiga .308 pistons have no shelf on them, I didn't get the correct length to stick out. Now, my rifle won't cycle at any setting of the kns piston. Can one of you tell me (as accurately as possible) tell me the length your piston sticks out from the bolt carrier? or maybe school me on the correct procedure for setting piston length if there is one? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Ok, this was always a part I didn't want to hassle with. I've been on the forum for maybe 3 years now or more, and I can only think of seeing about 4 threads for broken BCE or whatever you want to call it. To me that meant it isn't a common part to fail, especially since one had a Tapco MIM in there, and the other had a one off made for the small shop. Now the new rules come in and my previously compliant builds won't be compliant with my five rounders. I want to keep my pretty wood, so this is the last easily changeable part. (except the temporary Saw grip which needs to go.)
