muscledom,

Sounds great! Did you have the bolt lubed properly regarding a single malfunction. They as well as ARs should have the bolt carrier group having enough lube on them to look a little wet! If it was new an fairly dry that would explain the slight hiccup! Congrats! Sounds like you have a fine weapon there! Enjoy!

Yea I sprayed everything down with the lube. I picked up some ammo, being new to this ****, I didn't realize until I got home that its steel cased. I think I ran brass today. Is steel ok to run through this?

AKs were designed to run steel, not brass.

Also Shaker, a big reason to use lube is not just reliability, metal to metal contact when dry will cause premature wear.

Yea yea yea. That's what she said .

I understand but just saying you can run an ak all day long for as long as you live with no lube and it will still run.

Yes i lube my personal ak's but I was just saying its not necessary these are not ar15's.
