So far, have seen none of it. I do have some shiny metal, but just like most of the rest of my guns. Or at least the ones that get shot a lot.You got very lucky, far too many problems due to soft metal parts used in the Century RAS and CV39 series. Hopefully no one gets hurt due to Century's profit before safety manufacturing methods. That video should be a real wake up call to members.
I suspect the original C39 was a bit pricey to make, as none of the danger zone wear spots and grooves they show have happened, and perhaps the V2 was an effort to make a cheaper, therefore more affordable AK.
What perplexes me is the inherent design of the AK is such, that some bedouin can hammer one out of stamped parts in a cave in the 'Stan, yet we can't seem to build a good one here?
