I invented the conversion for Century, and still own the original gun. Over 2000 rounds with no problems at all. Clean about every 500. An accurate,1/2 inch preformer. I repeat DO NOT FILE THE FIRING PIN FLAT.
Any source for pre-lightened firing pins?
When I took my MAS to Oleg's house so he could photograph it, he asked if he could take it to the range. "Sure," I said.
"How does it shoot?"
"Don't know. Haven't shot it yet. Remember I only brought the one box of ammo."
He left to go to the range and I stayed at his crib surfing the 'net. He and the other kids came walking back in a few hours later with Oleg's hand all wrapped up and looking like it had been hit with a bat. Yup. Slam-fire. Very first round, and the cocking handle had caught him square on the meaty part of his thumb.
