    WASR-10 First Range Visit

    I finally got the chance to get to the range to shoot my new AK-47. It's a lower end Romanian WASR-10 but the rifle operated flawlessly during the first day out and after some tweaking I shot a pretty decent 10 shot group at 25 yards.






    I'm use to the heavier trigger on my CX-4 Storm. When shooting the CX-4 after the first shot and reengaging the trigger it still requires a fair amount of pressure to fire the next shot. Not so with this AK. After the first shot you remove some pressure to reengage the trigger and with just a VERY light squeeze the next round fires.

    Very nice! It looks heavy with that wood furniture. Glad you got it dialed in. Using the scope? How are the iron sights? One more question.....is that barrel longer than 16"? A 20" maybe?

    Fun to shoot, cheap ammo, cheap price tag, reliable as any other ak, and as long as you know what to look for before you buy, they're an all most perfect little rifle. Not a tack driver, but close enough at less than 100 yards anyway.

    Love those things. Great grouping!

    AKs were not meant to be minute of angle, more like minute of milk jug.
    If it is of human size at 0-100 or so yards, you can hit it where you need to.

    With a USGI sling, prone, and the basics you can land hits at 500 without much trouble at all with an AK ;)

    I recently picked up an older SAR-1 version of this same rifle. I got mine with a Russian Kobra red dot sight, a trigger job, a case, and five 30-rd mgazines for $560. I couldn't be happier.

    I ordered 1000 rounds of the Russian ammo from ammoman, and got it delivered for $239.00

    Granted, it's not a tack driver, but, wow, what a fun gun for such a cheap price. I prefer the oder SAR-1 as it has the dimples and doesn't need to be tweaked to accept the hi-cap mags. As I understand it, the WASR-10 is named that for the 10-round capacity magazines it is designed to use.
