oh and is this ammo any good? i can get a box of 40 for $14
most of the others
never seen that before?
needs more scary black
(just kidding, nice addition!)
I just picked up mine two weeks ago.
Tapco that ho
Fuck you guys and your stupid AKs.
I want one
Nice. The ammo you bought is Yugo and good stuff, but slightly corrosive.
Get one. Wasr is 400 bucks
I love my WASR
Just wish I could find some food for it. Would shoot it more
look at his location...
Not enough evil black found
putting the pins in and hopefully firing this weekend
still haven't decided on where to get the black grips or if I want to try more to clean up the original pistol grips
hmmmmm might get this for it, is the stock in the way when its folded? i mean can you still get your finger to the trigger, cant tell from the pic
Tapco doesn't make the greatest folding stocks. My recommendation is to spend your money on ammo and leave the wood stock on. It's more comfortable to fire and will probably never break.
Refinish that wood.
lol k stock can stay i guess, tips on how to refinish it?
don't drop it. WASR is known to have the shitasticly thin stamping. I've personally measured them and found them to be as thin as .5 mil. Standard is .8 to 1 mil. My M70 measured at 1.68 mil.
gusseting the receiver helps protect and it's simple to do if you are decent with spot welding.
I'm in Kali and i own this.
Where did you find a WASR that was .5mm? All normal stamped AKs should have a 1mm receiever, Yugo M70s have 1.6mm.
1mm is more than enough for strength especially if they are heat treated correctly. There really isn't that much stress put on the receiver during normal firing.
besides, .5 mil = 0.0005in
My measurements were done with a Mitutoyo dial caliper along the top of the receiver and under though the magazine cut. I've also used a Mitutoyo digital micrometer along either side of the receiver, and along the floor with the fire controls removed. Although it's highly unlikely you'll damage the gun through normal use, consider that all it takes to bend the receiver if you manage to drop it stock first. WASR's are known to have thin stampings, or not being up to the same quality as others. I've seen many of them with reveivers under .8 mil. I would prefer to have a thicker stamping.
no, .5 millimeters is aprox .02 inches.
I need to find a WASR 2 from a vendor that is willing to ship to CA.
