    AK Safety Reminder

    At range today. Running famfire for someone who wanted to have some exposure to the AK platform before a .gov class.

    When clearing the weapon, ALWAYS look in the breech AND look back to the bolt face. Sometimes the .30RS will stick to the bolt. Happened today before we were about to check targets.

    I caught it but I was stupid and nearly negligent for not going over this sufficiently in the lecture.

    Thank you for reading this.

    I have never heard of this before. Thanks for the warning.

    NONSENSE! Its not like a long gun can just "go off" on its own. You would have been just fine down range.

    Yeah, I didn't know to look for this, either. Thank you.

    I had no idea that could happen. How obvious is it when it happens?

    Okay, I had to google .30RS. Never heard 7.62x39 referred to as .30RS before. Interestingly enough, one of the google results lead to another INGO thread started by Kirk.

    Does that make it a self fulfilling prophecy?

    Sounds like someone short stroked the system that actually can happen with a lot of platforms but weapons like the ak that have a ejector farther back are all more capable of this condition. Always best to strip the mag a quickly cycle the action a few times, and visual checks are a must!

    He took the mag out and ran the bolt 2 or 3 times, but held the weapon at 0 with the buttstock at belt level, muzzle up and tongue out (aka, "the gun shop clear") instead of having gravity help and holding at 90.

    We worked on that.
