    Replace RAS47 US Parts with Foreign?

    Would this help the gun last longer...in theory? I have a spare Polish BCG that will work in mine, but will it still f*ck the trunnion up like we have seen the stock parts do?

    Thinking I would replace as much of the US parts on the rifle as possible.
    Doin AK's since '89!

    I'm not a gunsmith, but if I were you, I'd get go/no-go or a field gauge to check headspace before you went and test fired it. Some of the other folks here I'm sure can help you out.

    Yes.

    The reason you see US made crap receivers and trunnions mushroom/break/explode has more to do with the cheap-ass process used by US companies to make those parts. The bolts and bolt carriers are made the same way, so it's really just shit stacked on shit.

    Changing bolt carrier doesn't do anything for the trunnions. Changing those ....while technically doable......you may as well buy a different rifle.

    Like Walleye said...shit on top of shit

    Cut your losses, sell it, and buy something else with what you have leftover.

    The biggest issues are the bolt and trunnion and you aren't going to want to go about swapping those. Ditch it and get something decent like everyone else said.

    Mel64d tried to fix one of the akou test rifles that went shitter on them. It ended up not helping. As it was said above it’s shit on top of shit. Cut your losses and get a real ak.

    If it's working, don't fix it.


    Save your money for an AK with a more reliable safety record.

    Why do the RAS guys always want to use Polish carriers and bolts? I don't think I'm imagining it. They do seem to think Polish is the only way.

    If you must swap parts, almost any "real" Comblock parts are as good as another and will work, and all of them are superior to the shoddy US shit parts.

    But, the best solution is to cut your losses, sell the RAS, and buy a foreign factory gun or a parts gun made with mostly foreign parts.

    So do the USA versions.., for a limited time.
    I would not tout anything made in Pakistan. Quality unknown.
