    The AK47 is easy to break down, and easy to clean. It should feed anything you want to put through it. IMO....(and I like Gunzilla)......get some Sweet's 7.62 solvent (specifically made for cleaning after corrosive ammo) and run some CLP down it after. Keep your gas system operational. For the most part, eastern bloc countries that use the AK47 regularly don't even know the word "cleaning". Dos? Shoot it. Donts? Never point it at anything you're not willing to kill. Best of luck with it, be safe, and happy days at the range! Pics would be nice, and the first range day review will be something to look forward to.

    An added note. Should you decide to disassemble the FCG, take careful note of the hammer prior to disassembly. They can be installed upsidedown and I have seen a couple reassembled in that manner. They don't function well if at all in that configuration.

    The WASR is a nice, affordable, beater rifle and it's not as bad as everybody says they are. They're easy to feidl strip. Easier than an AR, I think. Have fun and shoot the heck out of it :)

    I just bought an AMD 65. And I just bought 1640 rds for it off CTD. Here is the link to the ammo I bought. you can find cheaper (Yugo ammo) but its corrosive, which isn't a huge deal if you clean your gun often but it wasn't worth getting it since it was only a cent to two difference per round. (like a 10-15 dollar difference in total price. )
    http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/AMM6408-1.html These are FMJ and come in a spam can. (640rds)
    http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/AMM6401-1.html These are the HP I got and come in packs of 20rds.

    This place has alot of good info too:

    I linked you directly to the Russian AK portion of the site because thats where the AKM WASR 10 was originally from (I think) but you can go back and go to any country you choose.

    Here is the link to the Yugo ammo

    Cool case but I really didn't want the corrosive stuff...but whatever fits your fancy.

    Having just researched the crap out of this I found the absolute best prices available. You can search around or trust my 4+ hours of looking. Happy Shooting!

    Stick with cheap steel magazines and cheap ammo for plinking.

    After looking at your picture, something to consider TomEGun,

    Try and figure out if the barrel on that AK is threaded, because it looks like yours has the original AK-47 set up at the end of the barrel. An AKM or AK-74 style muzzle break would help control the weapon a bit better in a rapid fire. The AKM one is what my WASR has, basically it has a cut that helps push the rifle down and to the slight left while fired, making for faster follow up shots.

    Its is threaded from what I can see it doesnt have muzzle break on it but like a cap that was tack welded just at the point where it touches front sight post I thought about cutting tack weld and unscrewing cap and putting a muzzle break on . cap is probably not the right term but dont know what to call it.

    Well then, you are already steps ahead of me. But personally I would put some sort of muzzle brake on there.

    Personally, I want to get a second AK, and try out the ATI Strikeforce package on it: http://www.atigunstocks.com/s-57-str...ce-stocks.aspx I think it would be pretty cool, but I want to keep at least one stock AK in my line-up.

    As far as ammo and magazines, I get most of that stuff from www.aimsurplus.com
