    Default 308 AK Bullpup Update

    Update - I put up the promised pics. Not wanting to distract from the other thread I just started this one.

    I took closeups of most all of the important pieces with a brief description. I'm off this week for some R&R and I'm going to the range on a week day where hopefully I can tie this down and do the "string test" to test fire it. If it goes through a few mags' worth of ammo I'll test fire it from the shoulder.

    Repost from GNA:

    She shoots! I shot exactly one time and didn't experience any chamber malfunction at all! I'm going to look very closely at the brass for any telltale signs.

    I did have one problem, however. The gas tube I repaired (explained on my site) didn't like to be rewelded. The weld seam blew apart, preventing me from making a 2nd shot. I have a pic:

    Muttman - I mig'ed it with my cheap-o mig welder... which is probably the main problem!

    The stripes on the case are due to the G3 chamber. The Germans fluted the chamber to aid extraction for their recoil-assted design. Standard G3 stuff.

    Winn - I chose that because my goal was to "recycle" as many spare parts as I had on hand. And I've never bought one of those! It just kills me to see a box full of mis-matched parts that just want a good home.

    I'll be removing the gas block from the G kit I've been using as a donor. If I get it done today (hrmmm... big if!) I'll take it back to the range tomorrow.
