Thanks!

So, gunsmiths??........ I'm sure any gunsmith could order tools and do the work, but do we know anybody who specifically does or is more familiar with AKs?

Yeah . . . I don't know.

CaR Firearms in Kent is always highly recommended for many different kinds of work, but I don't personally know how much AK work they do. They would be my first call, though.

It keyholes. One of the old Century builds where they used wrong barrel. I can still hit my targets, but its time to get it fixed.

I am not sure. I haven't read a thread yet where century took care of anyone. I guess it's worth it to give them a call and see what they say, although I've had it for so long, I doubt they would. I'll post up with what they respond.

Cool. Yeah, I know if the issue from other internet posts, but I don't know if they've been reworking them or not. But yeah, it's worth a call -- if they will, then it will probably be free as I expect they'll send you a shipping label as well.

I had to send an AK back to them (different issue), and they were pretty good about it.

Did Century make a bunch of 74s with .223/.224 bores or something?

Yes they did. As i recall they were making good on them, my first call would be to them to see if they will fix it for Free.
