    Cool Centerfire Systems

    Well, I have given up on my build for now. I was going to get an AMD-65 from Colorado AK Arms.....but, I'm sure most of you know the issues poor Todd is having over there. So that will have to wait.

    Being my first AKM, I want something cheap, just to see if I like the way the rifle fits me and what I need from it. I ended up purchasing a Romanian Wasr-10 from Centerfire Systems. Now I am pretty sure that Century builds these, and have read and heard about there craftsmanship.....or lack there of. But it seems all my Google searching for their problems are all from 2 years ago or more.

    So my question(s) is this....Are the same problems still prevalent (canted sights, feed/mag-well issues, gas tubes)? Or did they step up their game in the last 3 years as to fix these issues?

    My apologies in advance if this has been covered previously.....Was just hoping for some direct answers without filtering through opinions and such. Thanks guys!

    I may be wrong, but I don't think the century monkeys ever got their hands on the WASRs unless it was just for a conversion. Does yours take a single stack or double stack mag.

    Double stack. I asked Centerfire and they said they DO get them from Century.

    Yes, they come from century, but they are already built. All century does is convert them to double stack.

    Well that's a good thing from what I can understand. I guess I was also wondering if the barrel is threaded or if the brake is welded on? It didnt say it in the description if it was threaded and pin welded or just welded. Thanks for the info 7.62!

    On a WASR=10 I had the barrel was threaded and had a US made slant brake on it. Century imports them as single stack, converts them to double stack as 7.62x39 said and they add the necessary US made parts. Mine had a US muzzle brake, tapco FCG, pistol grip, and the piston. The big complaints I've heard about them are the canted front sights. Mine was straight. Would be easy to fix that if it is. Mags fit mine pretty sloppy and the bolt carrier was really sloppy in the receiver but it went bang every time you pulled the trigger.

    These guys have some AMD-65 parts kits.

    If you dont mind me asking, what did you pay for the WASR?
    “The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.”
