Now I'm damn near piercing the primer. Have to go to a standard firing pin for now. 3 out of every 30 do this. Now part of the problem could be the sorry as Tula I was shooting. Might test in some brass soon I hope.
I had a similar problem , I have a built trigger that is on a bench shooter , very light and the perfect bench trigger . However it will not fire the 7.62x39 round to save its ass . That's too bad because I try to sight in all my uppers on this lower because its so much more accurate with the light trigger . Had to go back to the mil spec built lower to get it to fire reliable . I also have one mag thats giving me fits and drives the bullet into the feed ramp and jams . I need to get on the feed lips with a set of needle nose and bend it slightly up . The rest of the mags work perfectly like they are supposed to . All in all im glad I got it bought but it far less reliable than my AK . Im not saying its no reliable but I have never had a jam or malfunction in the AK . in the AR 7.62 I have had maybe a dozen in 400 rounds mostly due to the one particular magazine issue . Its pretty accurate , well until it beat my new scope to death . I have went to a 4.5 oz buffer to help stop some of that brutal recoil that it had with a carbine buffer
Lord, Make me fast and Accurate. Let my aim be true and my hand faster than those who would seek to destroy me.
Grant me the victory over my foes and those that wish to harm me and mine. Let not my last thought be If only I had my gun ; and Lord if today is truly the day that You call me home , Let me die in a pile of brass.
