| The problem is most
of the rifles still have 2 little burs at the back
of the magazine well that interfere with inserting
magazines, and drums into the rifle. What this tutorial
will show you how to do is correct the problem so
both magazines and drums fit into your rifle with
no hassle. Hopefully this tutorial will put a end
to all the nay Sayers that a WASR-10 can not accept
the only tool you will need for this fix is a trusty
old dremel. Notice the two burs in figure a below.
These are what are causing the majority of the problem.
These burs combined with a far to rounded magazine
well towards the rear is the reason most magazines
have trouble fitting.
The first thing you need to do after you fieldstrip
the rifle is to take the dremel and remove the
two burs so you get a flat edge under the magazine
catch so it looks like figure b above.
|Next you need to clean
up the rounded profile of the magazine well as highlighted
in red in the above picture. Its best to take off
a little at a time and test fit your drum/magazine.
Once it fits fine take a file and smooth out the
finished the well should look similar to above photo(note
in this picture I did not smooth out the rough edges
with a file yet which is the last step. Make sure
you file down the rough edges and clean out all
the metal shavings before shooting.
|Now that you have fixed
Century's "mistake" your WASR-10 should
accept all magazines and drums. Above is a photo
of my WASR-10 with a chinese drum.
