GUN Fucking Prvi M193

Discussion in 'On Topic' started by Market Garden, Aug 31, 2009.

  1. I had a CQB rifle class this weekend, and figured I'd burn up the last 500 rounds of Prvi M193 that I had before I started onto my good stuff. Well, in the first 500 rounds I had at least 1 blown primer (one that I knew about) this weekend I had 4 blown primers from this fucking ammo that actually got jammed into the locking lug area and caused a stoppage. I have no idea how many primers were blown that didn't cause stoppages. What the fuck?!? I have never had problems with any other ammo I've ever put through this rifle, including my reloads of all sorts of mixed brass, LC M193, Wolf, and whatever else I've fed through it. I am not very impressed with the Prvi M193 at this point.


    Also, there was some fucking barfcom operator there, dressed head to toe in black "tactical" clothing and shooting some 16 or 18" medium contour barrel with a Noveske KX3. He was such a faggot. He kept talking about how the KX3 is a brake too. I wanted to buttstroke him in the face.

    hmm... I was thinking about switching up and buying some Prvi this time around but I might have to reconsider and stick with Centurion.
     
  3. Yeah, I dunno. Maybe it was just a bad lot or something, but this stuff was a pain in the ass, especially when we were in the dark house and I had to diagnose these damn stoppages in the dark.

    i haven't had any probs with it yet either
     
  6. Maybe it was just the stuff I got. :dunno: One of my buddies has 1k from the same lot as me, he hasn't shot it yet. It'll be interesting to see if he has blown primer issues with it.

    That sucks to have bad ammo...

    What year/month is this ammo? Remember how my 75 gr manufactured in January 2009 sucks compared what everyone else reports?

    Maybe PPU had so-so QC during the panic.

    I've had good luck with Prvi too.

    Chamber spec? No personal experience with it but a lot of people blame blown primers in 5.56 ammo on out of spec chambers. :dunno:

  19. It's a CMMG 5.56 chamber. I've never heard anyone complain about their chambers, and I've never had problem with any other ammo.
     
  20. It was made 12/2008, so yeah, right in the panic.
     
  21. I've seen those, unfortunately they wouldn't have helped with any of my stoppages this weekend. :hs:

    Well the blown primer in the trigger mechanism is much more common than it finding it's way into some other part of your gun like the locking lugs. It's a good thing to have.

    When your blowing out primers its usually one of two things. Loose primer pockets which you see more in reloaded brass, or over pressure. You should look at some of your other spent brass and check the spent primers for flow or flattening. Dirty barrels increase pressure. I load my ammo hot which is one reason I clean my barrels regularly. When your running compressed loads you do everything you can to keep it in safe pressure ranges. This goes against the new trendy don't clean your barrel thing which I think is a bunch of crap. I wear my barrels out way before with lots of shooting then pushing brushes and patches.
     
  24. None of the primers in my spent brass show any signs of over pressurization. If I had to guess (based on the fact that there aren't over pressure signs and that it's only happening with this batch of Prvi ammo) I'd say it's loose primer pockets in this batch of ammo, even though it's factory.
