Steve_Feist 1 Posted October 14, 2009 Report Share Posted October 14, 2009 Just curious as to how to prevent the bolt carrier slamming into the rear trunnion on the S 12. I remember reading somewhere that you can't use the silicon buffers on the S12 like you can on the 7.26 x 39mm AK's. However, I don't recall the reasoning as to why the S12's couldn't use the buffers. I broke my S 12 in a couple of weeks ago and ran 300 rounds of Federal Magna Shock # 5 bird shot through it. I also ran 50 rounds of Federal High Brass bird shot through it. Afterwards, I noticed that the was some slight circular marring on both the rear of the bolt carrier and on the rear trunnion. I can see where this could become a problem over time as the bolt is attempting to pulverize the rear trunnion by slamming into it. I think that I had set the Gun Fixer plug on # 2 instead of the # 3 position, which would account for the marring. Would a weaker return spring help here? What do you guys recommend to prevent this condition from happening? Cheers, Zonie 1 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
