Hi!I've got a cetme carrier with no carrier bushing that i can see,if i put the recoil rod assembly in the carrier it will catch and compress the spring,this is outside the gun.If i compare two carriers side by side one with a bushing and the one in question the hole apperse to be the same size,could the carrier have been machine to size without need for a bushing?Can't recall exact on line store where purchased,i know they specialized in AK's.THANK'S

A common thing, these new carriers do not include that bushing. Search the threads, someone has a drawing IIRC, and IIRC there are directions on how to press out the old one.

O.K.,i've re examined the carrier in question,there is in fact a bushing in there,theres no longitutinal seam looking from rear,if you look from frontyou can see around linedifferent from carrier also the recoil rod bushing catches just like my other carrier.THANKS
