"Just throwing this out there, but is it the bolt carrier that stops midway on the rails? Do you then push the charging handle forward and it feeds correctly, or does it jam that you have to clear it, eject the round?
Additionally, what ammo were you using, hollow points or soft points can be a big problem with some AKs. "
No, I cant push the handle forward as the round is stuck in their. The tip of the bullet, about 1/4 to 1/2 inch is in the barrel but the round is sitting at an angle and has to be cleared out of the gun before anything will move.
Also, looks like the bolt is hitting the side of the cartridge, not the end of the round.
I am using WPA (wolf) FMJ ammo, no hollow points or soft points
