does anyone know why

Recommended Posts

You can do it, if you have basic tools. All you need is a drill and bits, a hammer and either an AK gas piston rivet or nail of some sort to secure the new piston.

the new one is a lot bigger. I'm trying to find a shop in Houston that can change it out the right way

 

Thats the point brother! Its heavy duty and will hopefully be the last piston rod youll ever need!

I found a shop to do it for 60.00 they said just give them a few days. the other places said it could be 6-8 weeks before they could do it and the other shop I called never called me back. if this doesn't work I think its time for a different gun.

If you decide to do it yourself heres some info on how to do it.

 

Look through this thread, there is basically a tutorial with pics. Its written by the infamous "pauly" but it shows the installation of the hd op rod.

Dinzag has a pdf download on replacing piston/op rod on this page.

Heres a AKbuilder vid on how to do it as well.

I picked the gun up today and it fired good. I put 5 rounds in it without a problem so I think its fixed.

yeah the only problem i have now is the gun only wants to cycle is 3 inch shells and they dont make magianes for 3 inch shells thats not 100.00+ each. also i go to a indoor gun range so no steel shot/no slugs and a 3 inch lead shell i can use is hard to find.
