Help! I just bought a mint DR200 for $500. Which I think is good deal. But there is a problem. No instruction manual. I am having trouble opening the action. I thought it would exactly like an AR. It has a button where the charging handle should be. I want to force it but dont want to break it. Anyone familiar with how to open it? Thanks

That IS a good price. Look at the top rear of the receiver. You'll see a button that looks like it should be pushed forward. Well, it can't be UNLESS you move the CENTER portion of that button to the rear, and THEN push the entire button forward. Its actually easier to do this than to explain it. If you want, I can copy my manual, and mail you the photocopy (if I can still find it)

I can photocopy/scan my K2 manual if you need help. Just drop me a line. I should be able to mess with it later this week.

Oh, and you'll want to get a paratrooper / folding stock as well. Check it out here (scroll down) [url]www.nccn.net/~b888/html/ace_ltd__products_2.html[/url]

Great Price!

Thanks guys, I'll try it out when I get home. The ACE stock I ordered says you have to swap out three parts. To add the skeleton stock that doesnt fold and pistol grip. But thanks for the info. You cant get this info instantly like this anywhere else.

Make sure that you use US mags with the ACE stock. The original Daewoo mags (identical except it just says "Daewoo" on the bottom) are foregin made and the three parts would make it and illegal configuration. Just stick to US mags (easy enough to do anyway). Ross

I took her apart and pretty interesting cross between an AK/AR/and FAL. It has a few handling marks and it hasnt been cleaned for a while but everything looks pretty good. Oh I got a 95%+ 30 round Cooper mag with it too! The action actually feels better than my Bushmaster AR. Really slick after a good cleaning. Cant wait to get to the range and get that new stock! Thanks for the advice guys.

In many ways the Daewoo is SUPERIOR to the AR. AK gas system, with AR mags is a sweet setup. Drawbacks include - 1. Antiquated sights (A1 vintage) 2. 1 in 12" twist barrel. Doesn't work as well with 55 gr, bullets. But considering even the $1,200 M96 has A1 sights, and the DR200 still shoots pretty accurately, I'd say its a GREAT rifle.

I posted a link to an entire blueprint of the DR200 and how to break it down over at McUzi.com a week or so ago. I'm to lazy to go retrieve the link, but if you go to assault weapons it's right there under the DR200 topic. I found it pretty helpful. The dude also has prints of about every other weapon on his site as well so when I get a chance I'll post a link to the site here.

the a1 sights are excellent with elevation close at hand and very accuarate. almost like a1+ sights. and garandman- i think you meant 62gr not 55. the 1/12 bbls were designed for m193. shoot 42gr calhoons out of them. you'll be pleased steve

While the rear sight could stand a redesign, the front sight is a thing of beauty. Put a small dot of glow in the dark paint on the end of the ridge on the top of the front sight hood and when you look over the top instead of through the rear aperture you have a sight that is as fast to use as a shotgun bead sight and works in any lighting conditions.

You'll love it! Mine would shoot into less than an inch at 100yds with surplus ammo all day long. The only thing I didn't like about it was that there is a hole in the barrel which directs gas straight down, and under rapid fire, the damn thing quickly turned into an anti-aircraft weapon. I cured this by cutting off the fake flash suppressor, and adding a smith compensator. It keeps the muzzle dead-level under rapid fire, and also produces very little flash.
