Don't get me wrong. I'm an ignorant fool. I'm not an entrepreneur. It takes courage to go into the unknown and take a chance.

 

I still think this anti-pre-engagement mechanism is worthy of some appreciative attention. 

 

I know you all read or write for tfb but here's the link. No time link cuz the whole interview is worth watching.

 

I really wonder how he funded this thing. I really love how he's passionate, but how will he ever compete with a guy like serbu?

I'm sorry, my sarcasm wasn't coming through.

This spring is (according to the designer) what keeps the bolt from rotating in the bolt carrier, before it has moved all the way forward to the chamber.

I don't think they'll ever get anywhere with this.

   This whole AK-50 project is useless waste of time and money, if we speak about just a weapon. Not a bad way to get spotlight, though. 

 

That's basically how this Brandon Herrera guy uses it. Got a bunch of attention and built a following off the back of his AK-50 project, and now uses said following to generate ad revenue and sponsorships off of videos of him reacting to gun memes, or doing basic explanations on various Soviet firearms that anybody could get themselves with a quick trip over to Modernfirearms.net. A bunch of teenagers who don't know any better have elevated him into being portrayed as some sort of firearms guru, hence his "The AK Guy" moniker.

Yeah, I think I see a problem.

 

The return spring for the bolt carrier has to be stronger than the bolt spring, or the bolt carrier cannot force the bolt into battery.  The return spring is exerting the least force when the bolt carrier is near battery, because that's how springs work (Hooke's Law, yo).  So there's a very fine balance between having the bolt spring be strong enough to do anything but having the bolt carrier return spring still be able to perform its job.


Needless to say, this is not a good way to do things.
