Picked up my Project Arms RPD from me dealer yesterday and couldn't wait to shoot it.
It was a little chilly at 15 degrees today but that didn't stop me and a buddy. I lubed her really good with Rem Oil and then loaded her with a fifty round belt loaded with the first ten rounds of Chinese then forty rounds of Yugo. I had one light primer strike out of that belt. Second fifty round belt ran great. On the very last round of the third fifty round belt the round didn't fire. I hadn't cleared the rifle before putting in the fourth belt, but on charging the round popped out. OK. Then the rifle shut down on my friend and I. Apparently a trigger spring had decided to jump ship and somehow got up in the receiver cover. Now I have to find another spring.
I'm guessing this is where the traitor spring is supposed to hang out at.
