Class action lawsuit vs Century AK's
#1
This issue isn't unique to Century guns, most AK people know about the safety lever issue.


Quote:A St. Louis man is suing the designers of certain AK-47 rifles, alleging the rifles fire even when in the safety position.

~~~snip~~~

According to the complaint, the defendants design, test, manufacture, assemble, market, supply, and distribute certain AK-47 rifles. The suit says these rifles have a common design defect that allows the rifles to fire when the safety is pulled, placed, or pushed above the safety lock, creating an unreasonably dangerous situation for any person possessing one of the rifles.

So, according to them, the gun has "a common design defect that allows the rifles to fire when the safety is pulled, placed, or pushed above the safety lock..."

Thus the guns safety isn't in the desired "safe" position, as the safety lever would be sitting on or above the dust cover, or there about. And if the safety isn't in the "safe" position, then the safety, technically, is off or "not on safe".

That's my understanding of what I'm reading. I would like to see actual video of the problem. Even when I have the dust cover off of my Saiga, I can't get it to fire when the safety is above the safety lock.
