Re: Centurion 39 AK-47
I've had a Romainian AK since 2006, fed it over 10,000 rds with no malfunctions, although I have certainly modified it... No critical component mods tho...AKs are very much designed to be robust, and while you'll be no Alvin York, you can certainly throw down in a gunfight inside 300m. As for the "ramped barrel" everyone keeps referring to, allow me to elaborate: This is a gunsmith's mod that many manucaturers are now producing in the factory, especially for handguns. What this is referring to, is a sloped and polished reduction of the back of the chamber that helps guide the nose of the round off the magazine and into the chamber. The major drawback that some old school shooters have with it is that the "ramp" takes a bit of material away from the chamber, which is the part of the gun that keeps a casing in tact while the magic happens, and directs the force of round detonation forward....Ive never heard of a proper ramping job affecting the firing of a round, but if you want to ramp your chambers, I would reccomend going to a certified gunsmith to get the work done.
