    Great videos. Maybe if we keep pointing out the problems with the AKs these companies keep producing somebody might actually produce a good one. It is supposed to be the most reliable rifle in the word, who knew producing one that lives up to the reputation would be so elusive.

    I do not think it will make it to the end

    This is gping to be good… Damn good review so far. I hope the CAI GUYS are watching this….

    On a side note. Wouldn’t swapping out the blot and blot carrier be an option?

      Yes, but you have to check head spacing.

    Are the dovetails on higher end rifles not supposed to deform like this?

    I have a Saiga that shows the same wear. Now I’m worried.

      Check your trigger. Tapco G2 Fire Control Groups have sometimes been linked to excessive wear on the dovetail.

      In my rifle, the G2 caused the same sort of peening on a hungarian bolt-carrier, I snagged a surplus trigger and swapped it out. So far, there is no further deformation. Some folks grab a Century RAK-1 or ALG to swap out while keeping the 922r compliance. Either should work and are reasonably priced.

      Good Luck!

    I am new to the site..Great info! Just curious if same test has been done on the C39V2 and same results are happening? Sounds pretty much like same gun just milled vs stamped..

      They use the same bolt carrier and bolt. But receivers are totally different. It would be interesting to see something like this on C39V2

    I can not get over those gouges on the bolt carrier and all that wear on the bolt from just a thousand rounds. That’s ridiculous. I’m so glad I never bought one of these rifles. I went with the NPAP M70 which I haven’t had a single issue with. I’m just careful not to drop mine on the concrete. Lol. Keep up the great work Rob I have learned a hell of a lot from your channel.

      Lets wait and see John. Although I agree that it looks bad right now, much of the wear may just be removal of the finish which as you know will happen on any firearm finish. How badly it peens the metal will be the real evidence! However, I too am glad I did not purchase one. Cast trunnions kills it for me… They are purdy but that only gets you into the fight, not through it. As far as American AKMs, I do have a C39-V2 that I’m very pleased with. Id like to see Rob and crew do 5000 rounds on that ‘Murican’ AKM. Whaddya say Rob?

        I live here in Las Vegas and we have a lot of machine gun ranges that cater to Europeans who want to shoot a gun for the first time. These guys get to see ak rifles shot to failure. What they say is that the front trunnion is usually the first thing that breaks around the 100k round count. The chf barrels will start key holing at about the same time. Milled receivers last forever. But on Com bloc rifles the bolt and carrier are also forged. So it looks like American rifles are using cast bolt carriers also. These guys keep using 15k rounds as some kind of goal. I keep seeing reference to claims that our rifle will last 15k rounds. Well who gives a sh$t? I’ve got reference to wasr lasting 80k rounds. And it’s $4 cheaper than ras. If I want a 15k rifle I’ll buy an m4. I vote we all keep saying no to these rifles. I love century arms. I want them to corner the American ak market. But I vote they go back to the drawing board and try again.

        We will continue as long as head spacing is good and rifle is safe to use. I really hope to reach 5000 rds limit.

    Question Rob, “Are you running dry or are you doing standard lubrication at specific intervals?”
    (Sorry if you already answered this and I missed it)

    Thanks in advance!

      He mentioned on fb that he’s putting CLP on the bolt and rails every 500 rounds.

    Hi Rob, Thank You for all the testing! I enjoy all of your videos! I have one question do any of these so called” American gun companies” make a decent AK?

    1. Ethan Avatar

      I ain’t Rob, but check out his videos regarding Definitive Arms and DDI. He has a pretty favorable view of both.

      1. Dan Avatar

        Thanks Ethan; I will look them up!
