I have a Bulgarian/Russian RPD from Vector and it came from Vector with the gas port set at 2. It seems like it is over gassed as the recoil is too harsh and the gun is beating itself to death. I will try it at 1 tomorrow.

Has anybody played with the gas port?
What setting works best?
At what setting Vector shipped the gun?

Guys, I was right!

The RPD was way over gassed! It is still over gassed at the lowest setting (1), but at least now the recoil is a lot lighter!

I am thinking of welding up the highest setting (3), as I won't use it anyways, and then opening the hole slowly until the gun runs reliable and doesn't beat itself to death.

I don't see the point in welding anything. Just don't use that setting.

Next time I shoot mine I'm going to try the #1 setting. Vector reccomends the #2 setting, but I don't know why.
