I?ve only had four WASR-10?s in hand and it was 50/50 as to quality, I?m not saying they wouldn?t shoot well, I?m just saying that two of the four were kind of like looking at a wartime Mauser compared to a gun built pre-war. Rough but solid and with the WASR-10 electro penciled on the side. Is this common?
Your right, it is lonely.
I'm not sure what is next. I have thought about an Arsenal SAM-7 before.
But I dunno. Seems most people here like building their own.
I'm just hangin out and listening and learning right now.
Be real careful (LOL), this place can be addictive!!! My first AK was a WASR-10. It had a canted front sight and gas block also the mag well was a little on the small side. I straightened out the sight and block, opened up the mag well. I have never had a problem with it. After fixing those items, I wondered what I would do next.
Now I'm building my second AK (first was an AMD-63, this one is an AK-74). The knowledge at this forum is stellar and I'm sure that the folks here can help you with "ANY" idea or problem you might have, just ask. Without the help and information provided here, I would no doubt be buying AK's instead of building them.
I've had several Romanians ,as I seem to trade guns around alot to try different guns that I am interested in at the time. We won't even go into how many handguns I've had.
But this WASR-10 is the straightest (as far as sights and gas tube) of any that I've had. Including some SAR1's and a Maadi. The only problem it has is a little trigger slap.
It's not a bad AK variant I guess, but I do understand what you guys are saying about the virtues of building your own. Sounds cool!
