I know this is not really a "Rifle", but for obvious reasons I am posting here.

I just got my Draco out of DROS, and I noticed that there is a 1mm gap between the gas piston and the carrier. It seem very secure otherwise. Is this going to be a problem. Is this normal for a Draco?

I have personally never seen a AK Piston/Carrier that had a gap like this.

I noticed a picture of someone else's Draco gas piston being measured, but cant seem to find that picture on the forum now.

Thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

It happens. I've seen em with wobbling gas pistons. The tolerances on the piston length is pretty large. If it cycles fine then dont worry about it.

Thanks Mike. I think it is probably GTG.

Does anyone know where that picture of the Draco gas piston being measured by the digital calipers is?
