    Rob, if you had choose between a WASR or PSAK from palmetto state armory, which would you prefer. I’m in the market for a budget AK that is dependable.

      Get imports first, while you still can!

        Very true an import an will always be better. Being that I have family in central Europe and with whispers of a old company becoming new again that hasn’t been around for years there is a possibility that everyone that bought a c39 from century might be trading them for a true European ak in the future.

    Performed as expected …. bolt and carrier still stuck together , as expected …. 500 rounds to go !
    It just looks to me like that bolt is still trying to ” right itself ” ( probably way out of spec. to begin with ) .
    As RobSki says : It is what it is !

    I have info to share,

    Century’s engineers assisted, during a 2018 MILSPEC test to 12,000 rd, for the C39V2 & RAS47. The rifles have the generation 1 recoil springs. Basic gen. 1 spring changes were at 4,000 rd intervals & the extractor spring is also changed. Century also cleaned the rifles, every 1,000 rd. Red Army field kit available. In short, the gen. 1 recoil springs were changed for the way stronger gen 2. Maintenance – basically springs. So, that C39V2 should have had the recoil spring changed at-least once.

    The article didn’t say anything about a headspace loss & the gen. 2 recoil spring is, as of Feb 2018 & thereafter.

    “I changed my gen. 1 recoil spring at 1K, not 4K & clean, after every use.” I could have gone to, let’s say, 2K or 3K but … Oh, the trigger pull weight for the RAK-1, at 725 rd, averages 5.5 lbs. cold & cleaned. However, I have another lower average of 4.5 lbs. at 650 rd.

    Group 1 at 650 rounds: 4.25, 4.75, 4.5= 4.5 lbs.
    Group 2 at 725 rounds: 6, 5.2, 6, 5.75, 5.4, 5.1, 5.1= 5.5 lbs.

    What do I think of the RAK-1? Outstanding trigger, much safer than other light ones. The RAK-1 has a MILSPEC trigger weight for general issue (GI) & sniper rifles (SR’s). It is WWII Russian weight. By comparison, M16’s were roughly 8-12 lbs. Rock on.

    Are we to assume that the C39V2 and RAS47 completed the Century 12,000 round Spring Test without changing
    the bolts , and or Ras47 trunion ? or Is this another attempt to suggest , by inference , that these rifles are actually
    some of the ” finest AK’s made ” ? …. I am not pointing the finger at anyone here …. I am just dying to know what
    the facts are here ! Hopefully , this is not just another ” fractured fairy tale ” , that , ” someone ” thought up !
    I think we need to clarify this …. Hector , where did you stumble on-to this ” enlightened ” information ?
    Perhaps Century Arms changed the bolts and or trunion , and forgot to mention it …. yea ! ” that must be it ” ! ….
    or , someone is spreading ” fractured fairy tales ” in order t make fools of ” all of us ‘ .

    My Gunsmith confirmed that there was no such 2018 C39V2 Mill Spec Test on the C39V2 or RAS 47 , that he
    has found …. told me that ” quote ” : If you want to listen to an asshole , to fart ! …. the internet blogs are full of
    nefarious trouble makers like this , ” fanning the flames of ignorance – with the pitch-fork of misinformation ” ….
    these people need to “get a life ” .
    To tell you the truth , I doubt very seriously if these ” tight wads ” over at Century ever tested anything …. they
    most likely left that up to the customer , and , ” cried all the way to the bank ” when their ” cast steel Junk ” kept
    deforming and causing bolt problems for their unsuspecting users .
