I purchased one of your Black Polymer AKs (not a blem) when they first came out and after I fire 2 or 3 rounds the cleaning rod comes out of the "stub" under the barrel and moves forward 4 or 5 inches past the muzzle. Its a dangerous condition and the rifle is essentially useless. I tried calling several times but was unable to get through. Is there a DIY fix or does it have to go back to you guys? If so, would you send me a Call Tag? Thanks in advance.

Same happens to mine. I posted about it and got a few recommendations but ended up using a small zip tie. Would be nice if PSA addressed this.

You could also buy a Yugo M72 cleaning rod retainer. It slips over the muzzle threads and stays put after you install the muzzle device.
