That's too bad that this is running into problems. I guess I'll wait on this until they get all the bugs worked out. Primarily it's just the magazines that are having the problem?
Nevermind... video explained quite a bit. Thanks.
Baked my mags early the morning. Put a thin layer of lube on the follower and they all work like they're supposed to. Easy fix for my problem
They must have figured the baking solution out after I sent my mag back, as they never mentioned any solution to my mag problem. I'm sure it would have fixed my problem.
That's Promag for you... they make some cool stocks, but they can't make mags worth a damn!
Got the new magazine yesterday and it appears to work.
We need pics!
I'm close to the final form, just added the optics today.
All mags have been tested and function as designed. Initially they did suffer from the sidewalls pinching the follower which was rectified by wedging the interior and heating in the oven. 15 minutes of cook time and a throw in water set the walls back out. I further filed all the plastic form seams from the top of the mag that could in any way interfere with the follower as it came into the top resting position. Follower sidewalls were dipped in graphite. There was a problem with the last round failing to feed up high enough for the bolt to catch it. Turned out that a small portion of the bottom/inside receiver wall from was catching the round as it transitioned into the action. (I can get a picture of this if it helps anyone). A small amount of file work took care of that issue.
The rear sight scout mount is an UTG Tri-rail. Pleasantly surprised it isn't just a cheap block of aluminum but the two piece base is actually steel. Mounting feels solid.
Optic is a PFI Action-4 Quad Reticle Reflex 33mm sight. Wish I would of bought more of those when Woot.com had them for $130.00.
The gun itself is one of the $119.00 Chinese T53's Budsgunshop has been selling lately. Metal was in great shape, wood stocks are beyond despicable.
Man, I want one... patience Arin... patience...
Assault Mosins are FUGLY! But, if it makes a libtard pee his pants, it's worth it.
