    Havent seen kevin in years! He looks distinguished today.

  2. J. Beau on January 26, 2023 at 1:21 am

    Probably have more than one issue causing the primer issue which could just be a timing issue from excessive wear. Fixable I suppose rather easily with new parts. Cool video …

    Where are you at man it’s beautiful? I’m in the market for some acreage similar to that

    Why would YouTube have an issue?
    All you are doing; is deactivating a grenade. Making the world safer.

    James send me 👍

  6. GreenCreekRanch on January 26, 2023 at 1:34 am

    I was sent over here by james reeves and I’ve gotta say, i didn’t come with high expectations, but this seems quite nice, you seem confident and energetic in front of the camera, production quality is okay and the topic is interesting. I think I’ll stick around

  7. Jonathan davis on January 26, 2023 at 1:48 am

    i know it’s the camera but the entire ak looks slightly banana’d lol but, that’d just be par for the course if it was acctually true :3

    If you can ever get a Vepr or a Saiga in X39 or .308 get it.. Even if it’s in the hunting platform their easy to put back into what we all want…. They want crazy prices now for all AK’s for some reason.. AR’s required much more closer tolerances and work but now my LGS has them for 400 bucks.. smh.

    Worn out at 2,500 rounds?

  10. Fredboat on January 26, 2023 at 1:50 am

    Thanks for the video.I bought an IO Inc new in 2016 and it works ok, It had the rubber buffer on the recoil guide to prevent the bolt carrier from jumping out of the back of the receiver. I replaced the recoil guide rod/spring assembly with one from a Milled receiver,It has a solid rod on the beginning, No more rubber buffer and the after around 400 rds ,Runnin just fine, All good. No unusual wear on parts ,Yet. Later from Texas.

    I cannot imagine what was going through your mind trying to get this working. Why put so much effort into this piece of crap??

  12. charles gillette on January 26, 2023 at 1:54 am

    Give the girl some love

  13. constitutional carpenter on January 26, 2023 at 1:57 am

    Ah My I.O. is also to the retired status of gold spray painted wallhanger/very occasional range plinker. Glad see her get a little attention I.O.s can have a few rds ever year as a treat 🤣

  14. Ignaz Achenbach on January 26, 2023 at 1:59 am

    I like this video. It’s like a happy medium between Forgotten Weapons and Brandon Herrera in terms of how formal/casual you’re presenting the content.

    I hope this channel grows into something bigger one day!

  15. Joe Morgan on January 26, 2023 at 1:59 am

    people talk about AK reliability but those guns have as many problems as woody alans therapist 😂nothing major but you expect the quirks

  16. Truth Seeking on January 26, 2023 at 2:00 am

    Listening to you talk is excruciating my man.

  17. Black Powder Maniac Shooter on January 26, 2023 at 2:04 am

    That’s pretty cool bringing that ol’ rascal back to life.

  18. Michael North on January 26, 2023 at 2:06 am

    The first IOs were Cugir rifles; things didn’t turn to crap until they started internal production, after which they established new levels of absolute garbage, matching, or even surpassing some of Century’s mileposts in production of trash

  19. Micah Miller on January 26, 2023 at 2:07 am

    Cast trunnion failure would be a very bad day.

  20. iota on January 26, 2023 at 2:08 am

    Criminally underrated channel

  21. GaBe on January 26, 2023 at 2:09 am

    My right ear is loving this

  22. Wayne Hendrix on January 26, 2023 at 2:10 am

    My personal opinions , unrelated to our host, is that youtube can choke on a carrot. While they allow 17 year old skin videos on the platform, I don’t think my preferred content is at all in moral question. Thanks for the video.

  23. Hot Coldman on January 26, 2023 at 2:10 am

    Saw your letter read on tfbtv. Been watching for a few months. Is there a scratch on your lens? Seems to be a blurry spot in the middle.

  24. impoverished millionaire on January 26, 2023 at 2:11 am

    Why buy a parts kit for $200+ when you can source parts for the trigger group and bolt assembly online?
