Maybe a FTExtract where the next round glanced off the back of the spent case and turned left at Albuquerque?
thats what I was thinking
Ah. The almost mythical left hand side ejecting AK. Too bad the correct top cover is a myth.
This round obviously made friends with the rest of the 7.62 in mag and didn’t want to leave the nest!
I believe it’s a 5.45
I’ve seen that before. It’s not a common malfunction, but it does happen. I’d speculate that it’s from a loose-fitting top cover, or one that is out of specification. You won’t see this happen on things like a Galil or a Valmet, but the cheaper copies, and with 922r parts? Oh, hell yeah…
I’d love to know what the thickness was on that top cover, ‘cos it looks flimsy as hell in the picture. Which may be because there’s a cartridge sticking out from under it, but… Still.
I thought AKs worked fine without a dust cover.
I thought it was for shooting around corners…
Nyet, rifle is fine.
