[Video] Century Arms AK-74 Goes Kaboom
The above video was uploaded to Youtube back in November and the uploader has since posted a few updates in the comments.
As you can see in the video, we have a fairly big kaboom which sends the dust cover and completely destroys the magazine.
The uploader sent the gun back to Century who told him it was a headspace issue and that they were replacing it.
It would seem this one is strictly a quality control issue. That rifle should have never left the factory with improper headspace.
The uploader does say Century has been very helpful in getting the issue squared away. I would certainly hope so since, you know, their gun exploded and stuff.
This is a perfect example of why eye protection is so important when shooting and also an example of why gloves are never a bad idea either.
