Re: vz 52 rifle?
ok.. back to this. been on the back burner.. but my buddy is bugging me about it.
i need to strip the magazine and see why it don't feed.
plus I REALLY need to find out what it is chambered for.
I used a bbl brush to scrub the chamber from t he open bolt.
it will drive a 762x39 home and go into battery.. if you feed it a 762x45 it stops out of battery almost 1/4"
there is a double stamped cal marking on it.. the 7.62 is readable.. but the latter is near unreadable it almost COULD say /39/
from reading up.. a x39 would be more rare.. though extremely ideal i guess.
what about using a soft material for a chamber cast? rtv?
and back tot he mag. the lil tang in the mag that runs in a slotted groove.. the grove is not rectangular.. but a trapezoid as it nears the top of the mag.. thus making the follower drag and tip.. I'm guessing that the mag has been MASHED when removed from t he gun.
the bolt will NOT strip ammo from the mag and feed it.
the ears on top of the mag look peculiarly bent and rounded down way more so than an ak or ar mag.
still would like opinions or comments...
