AK-74 Polish Tantal Problems chambering first round
AK-74 Polish Tantal Problems chambering first round

I am having an issue getting the bolt to close when i try to chamber the first round from a clip its fine till about a half an inch from being closed and it gets stuck. Then i have to really push hard on the charging handle to get it to close.

I know thats what i get for purchasing from century but I just wanted a second opinion and maybe some insight on what to tell there customer service so i can get this fixed.

I have included some pics of the barrel which does not seem like it was correctly milled around the chamber. half of it is rasied and does not look like it should. I can see its wearing on the bolt and the barrel.

Looks like you are missing the feed ramp, aka bullet guide.

But that would be the case if the gun was not made for standard double stack mags. But then again a Tantal should be.

P.S. I'm viewing on my phone so I may not be seeing your picture as well as I would like.

Self admittedly, I know dick about the AK platform, but, new Gun?

Parts need broke in, mated, to operate smoothly. Also, really sounds like a mag problem. Does it feed fine when its not loaded to capacity?
