I grouped alright with it on my first day at the range, partly because I had the gas regulator mis-adjusted (didn't have the Black River tool yet). I had to manually cycle the bolt after every shot - that is, until the bolt jammed shut after about the 20th round. I'd not read of Youngblood's advice on removing the bolt springs, so the rear spring retainer went off into the wild blue yonder when I was attempting to remove it. Got a replacement one in the mail this week, and I'm probably going to go out to the range again this Saturday to try it out.LukeFF, Very nice indeed! These are very unique rifles, IMO, and are a blast shoot. You know we must have a range report. Welcome to the club.
1945-47 surplus Soviet ammo from AIM. Thinking about going out today and giving it another go.LukeFF, Sorry you had probs at the range, but sounds like you're on top of it. The Black River tool is the shiznit, and so are Youngblood's tips! What ammo are you planning on shooting?
