I picked up a new Interarms AK47 today. It's a pretty AK, but when I got it home and tried the fit of the included empty 30 round steel mag, it was damned near impossible to move the magazine release to eject it! I tried every AK mag I had, and whether it was loaded or empty, it made no difference. My thumbs are sore! I then tried a fully loaded mag, and there was no change. If I insert it as one should, until it "clicks", it takes all the strength I can muster in my hand to move the release. The release moves freely, with no magazine, albeit stiff, and I can see it catching the mag tab, but it looks out of spec. It's just too darn tight. The mags don't wobble, and look straight when inserted. I have never seen this issue with an AK, even the WASRs I have owned. I have a 3 day inspection that began today, so I need to make a decision quick. I don't blame Atlantic. It's not their fault. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
