    It does not lock in at the front. The 1 from my full size WASR10 Fits just fine. Is anyone else having the same issue?

    Thanks,

    Did it fit right when you got it? I found that it was very difficult to get back on correcty because of the spacer at the back....sometimes I had to use a rubber mallet to help.

    I dont have the mini, but the full sized Draco and noticed the same thing. It fit poorly when I first got it -needed a hammer to get it on, and even then it would "bulge" over the sides of the receiver. I filed down some of the contact points and that helped, but it still never fits 100%.

    So far it hasnt proved to be a problem with function - but I am considering getting another top cover just to replace it. If you decide to go that route, let me know if that fixes the problem.

    I have a rubber mallet and will give it a try, thanks.


    I am presently on the hunt for a Romanian dust cover and will let you know how, and if, it works.

    Thanks all,
