Default I. O. inc AK problem.

This weekend I took my new I. O. Inc Polish Sporter out for the first time. It shoots dead on but it will not feed under its own power. If I manually work the action it will feed and extract just fine. After I shoot either the bolt will recoil and then close back on an empty chamber or it will stop right before it would strip a new round. When it does this the old empty case is usually just sitting in the action and you have to shake it out. Ive used the two poly mags that came with the gun along with one steel mag and they all had the same problem. Also I am using cheepo Tulammo dont know if that would cause this problem tho. Thanks for any help.

4,

I think you have an ammunition problem from the sound of it. Get a box if "good" ammo from Walmart (Remington/Winchester etc) or other source and try it. It seems not to be the magazines due to the fact you have tried three of them. If there is no drag when you pull it back by hand and let it go loading a round. Probably weal ammunition that is failing to cycle the weapon. If that doesn't work and the rifle is new send it back.

An AK should run on any of the cheap steel cased ammo since it is what they were made to run on. Have you shot it without problems before? Does it have a recoil buffer on the recoil spring that may be causing the bolt carrier to bounce forward before ejection and the mag spring have time to work? How does the ejector look? What type of plastic mags came with it? What type if steel mag did you try?

This was my first time shooting this gun. I never got off two consecutive shots without having to manually work the bolt. There is no recoil buffer. The two plastic mags are I.O. mags. I can't find any markings on the steel mag. The guy at the gun store just pulled it out of a box of old mil surp mags. With the holidays coming up It may be a month before I can get out to the farm to shoot again.

Can you take off the action cover and take a picture inside so that we can see the ejector and action rails. Also the bolt face may be useful to have a pic of along with the recoil spring.

Otherwise the gas block/gas port, magazine height, could play into it.

Sounds like your gas port or block is clogged, have you fieldstriped it to see If its full if cosmo?
Your ammo has nothing to do with it, if its functioning properly it will eat any ammo you throw at it.

Pics look pretty good. Nothing too obvious there. Could use one more shot from above the action without the bolt carrier in place to be able to see the ejector and the area right before the rear of the barrel.

Can you get a small piece of wire or a pipe cleaner to go through the gas port and into the barrel where you can see it? Sometimes there can be some metal fouling from drilling the gas port that get into the port.

I cant get a wire in the gas port but the wire I have is pretty stiff. I will try and find something softer at work. I did shine a bright light down the port and I cannot see anything down the barrel.
