It's common for the WASR bolt to hang on the hammer if you hand cycle the action slowly but usually this doesn't happen when firing live ammo. I'd strip it down and inspect carefully, clean and lube and try good ammo.
AKs aren't as reliable in .223 as the original calibers but people do have success with them.
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together.
