    Here's one that broke on me. It would still chamber and fire - just wouldn't extract. Firing pin retainer pin held it together.



    But it had been welded on (modifed for a beltfed) which most likely affected the hardness. I have heard of unmodified stock AK bolts breaking

    I mostly collect, but often fire one chinese ak have over 12,000 rounds fired never had a problem. it's amazing how the bolt is broke but will still fire.

    This is interesting.

    I've welded on the face of several changing calibers. hummm

    The one pictured above had a reducing sleeve welded in the cup (for 7.62x25) and the stripping lug was built up. It was also functioning in straight blowback

    Well that clinches it for me - "not" a typical build if the thing was built up with a sleeve like that - makes more sense to me considering the heat treatment was altered. I take this as a lesson learned that a bolt's heat treatment needs to be re-tempered after welding on it.

    Yea I agree im not a big fan of adapter sleves as well. what i dont uderstand is if the picture above was a straight blow back why did it break at a lug??? a blow back dont use the lugs. was this due to the bolt hiting the barrrel?? or was it just from chamber pressure on the bolt face?? either way welding to me is a no no.
