Don't listen to these prima donnas going on and on about how crappy wasr 10s are. I just got my first one a few months ago, and i can't wait to get my second. "I don't have to worry about parts count,,,,my nato ammo is more available,,,,,metal finish, wood furniture, blah blah blah." These prettyboys are trying to win beauty pageants when the only things that matter are reliability, stopping power, and overall functionality. We're talking about guns whose sole purpose are to serve and protect their lawabiding owners. If you want someone to tell you you're pretty, go down to your local bathhouse and Lance will whisper sweet nothings in your ear. Wasr 10s bang like Mike Tyson and always will.

I just ordered my first WASR 10 (and my first rifle altogether) yesterday. From what I've researched, this is among the most reliable rifle in the world. Although 'cheaply' made when compared to other AK variants, it still has incredible stopping power. I've heard of a couple of potential problems with this model, including loose mags and a misplaced front site, but both of those issues can be easily corrected with little effort. For the price, you can't beat em. You might want to snag what you can quickly, because if this election pans out like i'm expecting it to you won't be able to get ahold of an AK as easily for quite a while.

Cheers!

Chris

when I was in the Peoples Republic Of Connecticut I couldnt have an AK and was forced to spend twice as much on a Mini-30 for a decent 7.62 carbine. The Mini-30 sucks. It's uncomfortable, expensive and grossly inaccurate. To add to the negative there arent any quality high-cap mags for it. It isnt even fun to shoot as a plinker.

I recently bought an AK. I was planning on spending up and getting a quality one around 800-1200 but the looming ban pushed me to just buy whatever the hell I could and as much of it as I could. I grabbed a used WASR-10 for 380.

It's soooo much fun to shoot. I love folding the stock under and trying to hip shoot a row of clays. It's awesome. It's more comfortable than my Mini was and more accurate too. When I first took it out the trigger and hammer pins kept walking on me. A few time it burst fired 3 rounds or more because of this. Thank god nobody else was around or I'd end up like that poor fellow from Minnesota.

I took it apart and found that the retaining pin was loose. Probably from the first time I had cleaned it and levered the safety all the way out. There are many pin types and each type goes in a different way. They're like little puzzles. You can get aftermarket solutions that take care of this but I'd rather spend the money on high-cap mags and rifles while a ban is still a threat.

It's the best money I ever spent. I love AK's now and plan to get more.

Id rather have 3 WASRs than one $1200 Krebs custom. But them I'm poor and paranoid Obama/Biden will get all totalitarian on my ass.

I have a WASR-10 and I must say that I either lucked out or they are not as bad as people say they are. I have only messed around with it target shooting with Wolf ammo and haven't had a single jam/miss-fire. I replaced the crap laminate wooden stock with a synthetic and replaced the foregrips with a quad rail system, mounted a red dot reflex scope and a foregrip. By adding the red dot the accuracy has drastically improved. I am in the process of adding a slant muzzle break as from what I have seen it is a good option for making the weapon more controlable when firing multiple shots. I am a little hesitant about that, as I live in NYS, but from what I have researched it is perfectly legal to hack saw off the muzzle nut, screw on a slant break and either tack or solder it in place as it is only illegal to have a "flash hider" and a slant break is not a flash supressor, and it is also illegal if it is not tacked/soldered in place as the weapon has to be made to not accomadate a flash supressor.

So ya... there is my two cents then some.

I have A wasr- 10 it works great no problems with mis feeds, mis fires, jams, etc., Not at all picky with ammo like certain firearms might be. I take mine to the range pretty much all the time, they are (atleast mine is) pretty accurate being that it has a lot more kick then the M16. (7.62X39 vs. .223 i don't know why people compare them, you will think something with less kick will be more accurate), get a scope (can't go wrong with that), if you want hit the bulls eye get something with less kick. If you want better control/accuracy do some upper body workouts, condition your body to handle big guns, that make sense to me, u know most motorcycle rider & race car drivers have to condition for control of that bike or car so take that into consideration, hope that helped

You're probably one of those Americans that enjoys the benefits of being an American, but have no idea on how many people in the history of this Country fought to have what we have! I don't think we should just go shoot & start wars to try out our weapons, but I guarantee you that you, I, & most everyone else you know would not be here if there were no weapons to survive with. You may not be a bad person who would use force on someone, but not everyone is like you. Not everyone thinks that nothing's gonna happen to them, or they'd just role over if someone were to attack them! It's funny I used to think of myself as a Liberal until I realized how foolish & Godless they are!

You can either keep it and rick being charged with a felony should it be discovered or you sell it before you move or you turn it in to the police.

After I moved I loaded up on rifles that are illegal in CT to make sure I couldnt get back in even if I wanted to.

I had a Romanian Ak BUT once I got my ar I never picked it up again. I've never had my ar jam or misfire, and the accuracy improvement over the AK is astounding.

Don't get me wrong, the ak is fine close in but cant compare to the ar for range and accuracy.

When a socialist slaver says that gun rights didn't help the victims of 911:
Airplane hijacking policy around the 1970's became one of sit back and relax and the hijackers will be dealt with when they land. Very socialist don't take or exhibit any individual action just sit back relax and let the gov't take care of you. We know how well that worked. If the policies had different, and our gov't and their main stream media sycophants had done their job before the incident the outcome would have been different. The worst we could have lost is 4 airplanes and not 4 airplanes and 2 buildings. Maybe only 1 airplane.

Paraphrasing Margaret Thatcher - Socialism works until they run out of other peoples money.

Socialism as a form of gov't is a crime against humanity - people who promote or practice it as a for of gov't should be tried for "crimes against humanity."
