IMO......that's sure pretty to look at. I'm sure the mods you've made to it fit you well. Tactical? Well, I tend to think of the AK47 as tactical from the start in it's original form with few amenities.High points and what a tactical carbine should be only convey to the individual and the owner. Making what you want out of it is always a great experience and a sense of self satisfaction. Impress yourself first and others later. I'm sure it will serve you well and you should always be proud of your firearms.I believe I modified my AK with all of the high points of what a tactical carbine should beActually.....yes. For the range intended they work very well depending on the model and the make. The AK was never intended to be a sniper rifle by any means. I personally think of it as a 300yd weapon max with a .308 short. The AR15 in 5.56 can be effective to 500yds with open sights. Your pic shows something other than original AK front sight anyway. Learning how to use the standard AK sights is a good thing IMO. An AK47 is one of two things....a CQB weapon in a large caliber, or a good cover and fire for effect. I personally like the AK47 since it's mainly our enemies choice of firearms on the field of battle. I like getting as close to the enemy as possible and using their own tools against them. Simply put....the AK47 holds it's own for mission specific requirements. Not much you can do to improve that. The AK47 depends on the basics for deployment. Why do you think the countries that employ this weapon have been doing so for forty plus years without a need for change? It s what it is. Improvements?PS: Do the Eastern Block countries think that the AK's iron sights are actually usable??
