    Hi all! Just need some help with my Saiga Arsenal 7.62 rifle....Went to the range and blasted about 120 rounds and I put in a new mag....Fired down the range and the round discharged but the trigger didn't reset and I was unable to fire the rifle. Pulled the bolt back and a live round flew out and another one reloaded......trigger reset and I was able to fire the round but the same issue happened where the trigger did not reset and am unable to fire the round.....WTF? Brand new gun and i have only changed the stock....


    Rifle is the bottom one in pix! Any help would be appreciated! Wasup ChipperXD!

    just a guess, but check the disconnector. if the spring is missing or jammed it won't hold the hammer back after a shot (just swings back up after the carrier). I forgot to put the little spring in one time and had the same problem you are describing....basically a single shot rifle.
