sorry double post
I personally like the Russian people. Stalin went a little over the edge, when he killed 25 million fellow Russians, but we will leave politics out of this.
O.K. after consulting with the drunks here, we figured this one out.
The answer is vodka and the gulag.
Russians love their vodka. Their hot tired thirsty. Working in the ammo factory under miserable conditions.
Lunch whistle goes off. Now what do you think they are doing when they go outside for some air and a bite too eat?
Correct. Not water. Their hitting the old bottle. Now back too work.
They dont know if they put powder in those casing or sand. Their drunk as a skunk.
Now Ivan the boss comes along.
"I read j4 post on Gunco. This j4 ruin our product. Imperialist Yankee dogs. You put our company name Tula very small print on package. Or you go too gulag."
The poor workers have no choice. Obey, or the gulag.
Too import products into the U.S. they have too stamp where it was made.
Kinda like the old Jap trick from years ago. They named a town U.S.A..
So products shipped from the town were "Made in the U.S.A."
Russians caught on and put Tula in small print.
So next time your ordering ammo for your AR..
Flat out ask em. "Is this crap from that drunk Ruskie factory Tula?"
They have too give you a yes or no.
But good question. You helped me much with these ARs. Thank you.
I hope this helps with your future ammo purchases.
all i can say is try to find some good ammo and shoot the hell out of it!
i wish there was some of that golden bear still around it is from your favorite russian plant and is my favorite russian made ammo--when i can find it that is!
darn russians i think the shoot all the good stuff and have been shipping all the reject shit lately.
even the golden tiger 7.62x39 seems a little tame compared to what it was years ago--LOL
whats the verdict 4th? did super-shortie ever get running straight up with the tula ammo?
C mags P mags, their all working so far.
Me and my brother Tiny, talked too them on the way too the range.
"Either you guys work. Or we are going too set a new international record for AR tossing."
So I am not sure which it was.
But thanks for askin. So far so good.
thats good to hear. it must be close to on the money. i can send you some spare springs i got a few extra hammer springs that i replaced with wolf XP's for use on 7.62x39 builds.
the ran fine on 5,56/223 lowers though.
For what they cost, they should work from the first roundARs you most times get what you pay for, I guess?
"Government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem" Ronald Reagan
the good ones are $1.50
the cheap springs are $.020--LOL! the expensive recoil spring is $4 the cheap ones are $1-- which one went bad 4th? was it s hammer spring or recoil?
damn it 4th are you going to tell us where you got the weak springs? LOL!
i have been building these things for a couple years and have yet to find any bad springs in new parts--
