Now, I'm thinking... what if the world ends, or aliens invade and I need to search abandoned buildings? Well, I'll add a light. Streamlight Polytac 120 lumen with a VTAC mount.
Man, magazine changes sure are getting annoying and difficult with that Romanian front grip..... I love it, it's so ergonomic. It looks a little strange and out of place... but... what the hell. Ordered a plastic handguard from K-VAR. Not sure if it's Arsenal plastic or what. Also, that Romanian stock is less then fun on the shoulder after extended shooting. Also, cheek weld is more like a "chin" weld. Ordered surplus wood from the rear.
Quickly decided that to finish it off, I need to ditch the barrel nut. Dremel came out again. Finally topped off the AK with this '74 "style" brake. Haven't shot it yet. It's made by FA Enterprises. Got far better reviews that the Tapco. Couldn't find a REAL '74 style brake for 7.62x39. The holes aren't in the correct spot, but ehh, it'll be better than no brake at all! I'll admit, mods to the brake were necessary. I had to shave a bit off of it so it would snap into place firmly. otherwise it would wobble. We'll see how it shoots this week. Have to check to see if it changes POI and make sure the rounds don't touch Apologies for the HORRIBLE pictures.
Now what? I'm going to build a Draco into an SBR using my Romy "donkey dong" and Romy side folder. I love those parts so much, but just didn't work well on my "serious" AK. I still have them and want to use them on my next AK.
That's how the last 14 months have gone for my AK. My AR hasn't had quite the transformation so it's not really worth posting.
With that said, I STILL prefer my AR over the AK when this December rolls around (<--- HA!... ). I shoot the AR better and can do everything quicker and more efficiently with it. But I still have a soft spot for a proper AK. Proper AK and WASR don't really go together do they? Mine can be an exception :) If I could do it ALL over again, I'd buy an SGL-21, or some AK-105 variant.... but I'm very happy with my WASR. It's been a great rifle, with only ONE problem. The firing pin broke on me this past summer. It's the only part I've replaced due to failure. No misfeed or jams of any kind. It flings cases probably about 20 feet from where I'm standing. Sure does annoy other shooters
Thanks for looking :)
