Another Reason to not hold your Magwell

Raven Concealment Systems 2

AK 47 Failure

Like the Mad Duo, this will be short and sweet.


Obviously an overpressure event. Whether from bad ammo, out of battery, or a combination thereof, the results are the same. Imagine if he’d been grabbing that mag like a grip.

From the video description, found here

New Century Arms AK-74 blows up in face while shooting it. This was the

first time we had fired the weapon and as you can see it didnt turn out


Must have been an excellent review.

    Do new century guns come with pre-aged wood, or are they that bad looking new from the factory? look at the still photos of the stock at end of vid, looks well worn for “new”.

    Interesting? yes…for sake of science I kind of wish he had been holding the mag.

    The energy looked to be more down and out vs. up, didn’t even look like anything hit the shooter?

      Rob, Century’s M74 sporter, which is the designation for Century’s Ak-74 clone, is made from surplus parts kits. I’m not entirely sure what the country of origin is for the parts kits but there seems to be a consensus that the parts kits are Bulgarian. The only parts that don’t come with these kits are the receiver and barrel. Both of these items are U.S. sourced. I have an OPAP that’s imported by Century but assembled in Zastava Serbia. The fit and finish of the rifle itself is good but the furniture is surplus and looks like crap.

    If I have to avoid holding my weapon a certain way then it’s time to get a different weapon or ammo.

    I like most of the articles you put out, but this is just stupid.

      One of the reasons we like writing for the demographic we write for is the frequent candor. Thanks for telling it how you see it 1C3! (Not fucking with you, for some reason that hit us as funny.) Thanks for reading man!

    Could be a also a good reason to keep in mind ALWAYS to wear eye-pro and possibly gloves when shooting…

    Impressive! How come?
