    Finished my AK

    This wasn't so much a panic buy as it was a "I changed jobs during election time and my old job had to cut me a check for 6 weeks of vacation" buy. I honestly wasn't trying to mall ninja it out. I didn't put anything on that I didn't think would be useful as a all around end of the world type of gun. I didn't really NEED the foregip but I couldn't find a good way to set the light up that didn't require the fore grip to operate it comfortably. I tried to keep everything as light weight as possible. Last thing I need to add is a sling.

    Honestly... It shoots like just about every other AK lol. It came with the G2 trigger so the pull is nice out of the box. I haven't had a chance to dial in the dot yet (will probably have to wait until next spring) but when I shot it open sites before the weather turned to crap it grouped around 3 inches at 50 yards with wolf ammo. That probably has more to do with my lack of skill as a rifleman then the gun itself.

    I don't know that I like it, it's kind of scary. Must be an assault rifle. Would be a lot safer for you to own if it didn't have that flashlight on it...



    Good lookin' gal there, nice job!

    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    Uh-oh.
    Another "evil" black rifle!

    I like it!

    Nice Saiga. They are fun projects. Done a few myself.

    Golden Tiger ammo out performs Wolf in my experience.

    Have fun running your AK.

    I turned an Amazon gift card into a new Hogue grip and a quad-rail fore-end for my little Hungarian AK variant (AMD-65 carbine). AK's remain a great value, accuracy is better than most give them credit for, and that Tapco G2 trigger is actually quite good. I like Brown Bear 123gr hp's in mine, and they're cheap.

    Nice rifle, Rollo!
