Bill 0 Posted April 3, 2008 Report Share Posted April 3, 2008 Hi Guys, been too long since I have been on the forum. Hey I have a question or issue. My S12 bolt seems to 'hang up' at the point where it rotates to lock up i.e. if I DO NOT let it slam shut like normal and try to slow it with the hand it hits a point where I have to smack the back of the charge handle to get it to go into battery. I have disassembled the bolt and carrier and from what I see there are a couple areas where the metal has been 'dished or diveted' in the machined camming slots. I have tried to smooth the burrs and stuff to relieve the issue because if I 'hand manipulate' the bolt these areas definitely seem to be the issue, but it still does not seem right that it should be this way. Now I did buy it used but it does not appear to have been abused. I am thinking heavy loads and soft metal. Any help on this would be great as i believe you should be able to hand cycle a S12 slowly like you can with a normal CF AK- none of those that I own act like this and this is my only S12 so i do not have any other to compare with and I realize the bolt system is different vs a reg AK rifle bolt assy. Thank you all and if I need to do work on it i will need to do it my self, no place in the PRK to take it too....I believe all the gunsmiths -public advertised- are all worthless ass snitches. I also need to have a 5 rd mag modded with a slot and a lever on the follower because i have to have the mag 'fixed'. I cannot remember if Indy or Cobra or ?? did this. I am trying to decide if I should ask for a letter from the DOinJ here if a mag fed shotgun is still illegal IF it takes a 'tool' to remove the mag. If you use a bullet or something to push the mag release(box surrounds the mag release except for a slot) then it is NOT a 'detachable mag' as written in the current regs-for rifles.... Thanks and it is good to be back and -wow- a number of changes! Quote Link to post Share on other sites
