    Hi rob was wondering in your opinion which ammo and magazines have worked best for the vska so far?

      Magpul mags, Xtech Tactical mags (ha!) and surplus mags. Ammo: everything wolf, golden tiger – even hollow points

    Internally, the “extractor spring” could be worn, just a thought. Century Arms changes them, along, with the recoil spring (Every 2-5K or so), during periodic maintenance cleanings. Claw springs are very tricky, some tighter & some looser. Extractor claw spring failures have happened in, that amount of time and less, like 500-2,000 rounds. That round count is still a-lot though, ‘kinda, by comparisons, you know, what I mean. The VSKA is very likely, using Century’s new recoil spring, which is supposed to be way better but I don’t know, about the extractor claw’s. They had problems, with it, before, a-lot of actual spring failures; so, they ended up changing out the extractor spring more & more, as round count went up. Cleaning is their biggest pet pea. Great video.

    Looking at the 2500 rd. test results , certainly doesn’t want to make me run out and buy one of these .
    After seeing the videos of the RAS 47 , What did you expect ? Century Arms ” getting it right the first time ” ,
    just isn’t going to happen !
    Just seems like the intelligent imbeciles running the Circus over at Century Arms will never learn from their
    mistakes , finally fix one problem , and then , create another one to take its place …. give the sap who buys their
    products ” just enough to want more ” !

    I just had to ask myself : Why would a Company like Century even consider bringing out a ” New Model ” AK to
    replace the RAS 47 ? It has been almost a year now that the bottom has fallen out of the AK47 Market .
    Presently , due to ” Trump Slump , over proliferation and turds like the RAS 47 ” , very few buyers actually really care anymore about the AK . To me , ” real happiness ” is a new Russian VEPR , at a price that I can afford !

    Watched the VSKA 5000 round torture test video conducted by Mr. Gunsgear …. still does not make me want to
    go out and buy one ! From what I understand , the VSKA rifle that he tested was sent to him by Century Arms .
    Century Arms must have taken special production precautions in the building of this test rifle …. unlike Rob-ski’s
    ” off the shelf ” test rifle , it apparently only jammed 5 times in 5000 rounds .
    Had this VSKA been an “off the shelf ” test rifle , I am sure that things would have turned out differently on the small
    number of stove -pipes encountered .
