Step two: beat the magazine with a deadblow hammer until the dent is gone!
And before you ask, I have no idea where one acquires the chest. My friend found it years ago.
You would think there would be bunches of them over here after DDR went kaput.
Is too complex. Find way to do this with rock.
That's in the Afghan/Chinese/Korean field manual.
How's your Dari or Mandarin, Cor?
As long as the dent isn't near the top of the mag, where the rounds enter the rifle, a dent or two shouldn't make a difference if the mag follower is free to move.
The mags might weigh as much as a horse, but they're as strong as one, too.
Wow. I did not know that.
And that armorers kit is the cats pajamas!
I always thought AK mags were intended to double as jack stands for Soviet tanks.
Mikhail Kalashnikov was a tank mechanic before he started designing guns, right? It makes sense.
I've seen a few where the dent in the side causes the follower to bind if loaded past X number of rounds.
Actually, comrade, age of testink is four years, and is with rock, not overly-sophisticated capitalist contraption like hammer.
The only tool I used on my wasr was a hammer, worked great. A rock would work just as well.
edit: found another one on AK47.net http://www.ak47.net/forums/topic.html?b=4&f=64&t=107111
In buying surplus AK mags, I've gotten a handful with dents deep enough to bind up the follower. I returned or exchanged them all, but now I want to find some more to try to fix. I imagine that non-functioning AK mags should be available pretty cheaply...
