im picking up my SU16B saturday and i'm wondering if it beats up brass (i reload)

and if so, what parts of the rifle does it hit? i can envision in my head that the brass cuold hit the charging handle; does the odl AK + electric tape thing work?

My SU16CA doesn't beat up the brass at all.

Mine dents the case mouth everytime , Im running the round metal charging handle , not the plastic angled one . Shouldnt be too much of a prob , the expander ball should open it right back up when you size .

Mine is easy on brass. It also throws them close by so I can find them easily. Mark

Mine has the round handle. I don't know if it matters but it has a stag extractor too. Mark

What do you do with the electric tape? Place it across the ejection port to be used as a make-shift brass catcher/deflector?

i read that a lot of AK guys will put tape on their charging handles and teh lips of the ejection port

but as duenor says (and as i forgot lol), the receiver is plastic


woohoo!! this will be teh cheapest gun for me to shoot that i will own. even the damn glock will cost 30 cents (walmart white box) to shoot.

im thinking of trading that for a cz p01 in 9mm

Ahhh...I was way off then. I thought it was a way to prevent spent casings from being thrown into the next county.
