You'll need the single wound early spring as the later double wound spring has too big of a diameter to fit an AK bolt carrier.

*SIGH* I've been having difficulties with 'big brother' on this build. So, I won't be finishing my build...

What kind of troubles? Calling you? E-mail?Tell them they can watch you make a legal rifle on the forum and if they keep harassing you then call a lawyer and sue for a million!

I posted it about it on ARFCOM. I had a running thread documenting how I was building it, but after these troubling issues, I just had the thread deleted and stopped the project.
It's a fight I'm in no way prepared to undertake at this point in my life...
I posted my apology here...

I have my feed tray and top cover mounted. When I attempt to cycle ammo through by hand the rounds do not want to drop down. they just want to go strait forward and run into the cartridge guide. I have looked every thing over and I just cant seem to figure it out. Thank you all..

You might need to bend the tip of the cartridge depressor down slightly. It is heat treated so you should heat it to a dull read before you try bending it. Be sure you remove it from the top cover assembly before you do. You don't want to anneal the cartridge depressor spring. First try beveling the feed ramp or what I think you are referring to as the cartridge guide so the tip of the bullet is deflected down into the mouth of the chamber. A Dremal tool works great for that. After you bevel it, polish it with a Dremal polishing tip.

Well thank you for the tips. CNC trailrider said that I should post some pics of the problem so here they are I am afraid that my problem is severe enough that beveling the feed ramp is not enough. Also how much of it can I remove and still be safe? The bright area on the cartridge depressor is were I TIG it back together after I cut it too short. In your opinion will it hold being welded or shout I get a new plate?
