WE AKS-74UN First Impressions (Pic heavy)

Recommended Posts

And then spend a whole day filling down Ra-Tech parts to fit them ....

Purchase from RA-Tech directly, with all the bells and whistles already installed.

I've had to re-fit everything more than one time on replicas that came from RAT, not complaining though ... more work and thus € for me ! :D

That AK looks very nice and the full travel bolt sounds awsome.

I personally would have prefered the 74M model...fingers crossed, maybe they'll release one at some point.

Word of warning, unsurprisingly the screws are made of cheese also.

Had two round on me already.

The current one being the grub screw holding the selector paddle in which I cannot currently get out. :-/

 

Typically the RA-Tech steel parts arrived today.

Try jamming in a similarly sized hex-tool in the grub screw, give it a tap with a small hammer to secure it and then unscrew to remove it. Should work.

@Reppy, are the replacement parts offered as an entire trigger group too? I take it you got the pieces separately...I can't seem to find the link for these parts off RT's website. :unsure:

Outch, I feel for you man... Horrible situation to end up in :-|

im guessing you need to match the drillbit almost exactly to the screw and even then there will be residue jamming the parts together. Maybe just dremel the parts to pieces ?

It would appear the metal has smoothed out where I was drilling, so the bit has nothing to bite down on.

Would rather avoid a dremel job but looks like it may go that way.

Got it all together finally.

Appears the hammer needs a little filing as it catches on the trigger box about mid way.

 

Leaving it alone will cause light striking or venting.

Thanks for the link Reppy; looks like you are on your way to having a pretty solid rifle.

anybody else starting to think there is weight to the rumors that WE make the guns with pure *suitcase* for internals just so RATECH can skim the profits off the aftermarket bits?

 

Why doesent WE just spend that extra $50-60 ontop of the price of the gun and put decent *suitcase* inside it so you dont get these kind of breakages
