As my introduction thread states, I'm a writer working on a book. My main character up to this point has been carrying a Ruger (specifically, the M-30/20GBCPC in 7.62x39mm). Someone I know suggested against Ruger because of a problem with broken firing pins after about two thousand rounds, and the lack of aftermarket fixes for the problem. So here's my dilemma: I'm looking for a reliable 7.62x39mm that's comparable to the Ruger. In order to switch it out and still keep my scenes the same, I need the following in a rifle: An overall length of no more than 37". Made from alloyed steel. 20-round clip capability. No more than 7 pounds in weight. Preferably the same loading and firing procedures as the Ruger M-30/20GBCPC Help, pretty please?
