Great page, great idea.

Just a thought or two, though.

Why don't you turn around the brake adapter so that the smooth part is against the front sight, like the original? You could push it up against the front sight post that way, and even weld it, making it very similar to the original item.

The link from page two to page three did not show up for me.

Oh yeah, brake is spelled 'b-r-a-k-e'.

Great idea, great page.

Because it was geared towards simple tools...I have talked to multiple machinest about the welding idea and they gave me a list of problems that would arise...

Some Problems include:
1. FSB would be very hard to remove with piece welded because the adapter would have to be a tight fit or the brake would be off...
2. Heat temps nessary for welding may affect the FSBs finish and heat treated propertys of the FSB and barrel
3. If you screw up there is a chance you can ruin your FSB

The link from page two to page three did not show up for me.

Works fine for me and several other people I asked...

Oh yeah, brake is spelled 'b-r-a-k-e'.

Already fixed....Nosegunner came up with those two diagrams and realized the mistake soon after I posted them...

You rock linx310...it's all your fault that I bought a SAR-1 and bought a crap load of ammo though! Where do I send the bill?

Great site! Ive looked for hours and as far as I can tell you are the only romaninan AK site out there.
Link Posted: 9/8/2003 3:54:22 PM EST
I agree...Great site. Thanks for the hard work.

I bought an SAR-1 Sat. and spent much of that evening pouring over your site.
Link Posted: 10/20/2003 5:55:15 AM EST
Thanks for a great site. Bought my SAR1 and thanks to your site had it stripped and was in the process of cleaning and refinishing the furniture that night (till 1am). LOL. Excellent Job.

Very informative site Linx310. I've been thinking about getting a SAR-1 lately and found your site to be excellent
Link Posted: 12/24/2003 2:22:34 PM EST
I found it to be of great benefit, also... Well done, linx310...

With the assistance from your website I was able to remove my front sight and straighten my canted gas block! I then removed & replaced the rear stock!

You rock! Thanks!

Great site. I just got a WASR 10 today. I am probably going to get one more. I love the Aks.

That page is awesome. I just got my SAR-1 last Friday, and you've got more info on this site than any other site i've seen. Great job!

p.s., i noticed the link to the sar-1 manual changed to:

Real informative and easy to read, and since i'm about to purchase a romanian AK, very important to me right now!

Im another fan of the site...I blame my first SAR2 on it :) and I fixed the trigger slap problem before i ever went to the range with the info on the site...just wanted to say thanks!

I have a SAR 1 that has different markings than what you describe in your site. It states on the left side of the receiver ... S1 30505-2000. Under that it says.... SAR1 7.62x39. On the right side it's stamped.... Made by SN Romarm SA/CUGIR in Romania Imported CAI St. Alb, VT

According to your database it should be a .223 caliber SAR 3 if this stamping on the right side of the gun is correct. Can anyone clear any of this up for me?

Well, My parents always taught me to be polite. So for saving me time, money and aggravation on a new wasr-10 thank-you. Your site, within 2 days, has probably saved me about $50 and tons of aggravation. Again thanks.

Just wanted to say thanks for all the work on the website. I used several of your tutorials this past weekend to turn my ugly duckling WASR 10 into a pretty slick looking/shooting AK.
Link Posted: 10/29/2004 8:29:04 PM EST
Just bought a Romanian WASR10 today and came across this great site (thanks to AR15.com) and then your GREAT site. I only have one gripe with it. the menu bar on the left - it's sort of hard to see the yellow font over the grey background. Other then that, looks like a wealth of info

just an FYI, the bump fireing videos are not working. Just the animated gif works but is in slow-mo. But no big deal, I don't bump fire anyway, but I do enjoy watching other do it.
My piece of cake is shooting competition and also shooting the scarecrow targets. I get the two pounders and mix them, then place em in custom size containers. Love the positive report and fireball from em.

Great web site. I am new the to AK and was wantig to know which i should get. I posted here and this site several times asking about them but I did'nt get all questions answered or was more cornfused after reading thier responses. So let me ask you a question if you would be so kind to answer it. I want a good AK that is cheap but is just as reliable as all the others. Iknow that you get what you pay for but I have a AR-15 and the money to shoot it like I want to gets expensive, thats why I want an AK to shoot cheap ammo through it and not worry about it if I blow it up because I could just go out and buy a new one. The AK that I have been looking at is the one for $399.00 and is all black with plastic furnature on it that ohio rapid fire sells. Is this a god AK it looks cool and it is in my price range. I have heard alot of good things about Todd at ORF and was also wndering if I was to buy one of these guns from him I would assume that I wouldnt have to worry about the gun being canted because he wouldnt sell it if it was (right?). So if you have time (or anyone else) please giveme some feed back about this AK and tell me what you think, thanks.

Hey, your site is very well done and quite informative!

I am an AR man, but a buddy and I are discussing a potential swap, his SAR-1 for my SKS-M. In five minutes on your site, I've determined that the rifle a) has no "cant", b) is of better quality because it was made in 2002, and c) is worth about the same as the SKS-M (which I also know nothing about).

The ONLY thing missing, and yes, it's a newbie item indeed...

Is whether the receiver is stamped or milled, and what the thickness is.

Just a suggestion, not a question, and if it's entirely too newb-stupid to add, then that's OK too.

I'm going to go spend some more time on your site, and tomorrow morning, my son and I will go shoot the AK and the SKS to see which one we like better.

Thanks again for the effort!

I learned something new today about my SAR1, other than canted sights hose
Forgot to add that my hammer is somewhat beaten up, like its too soft, maybe its another flaw of the pre '01's

First nice website. I think you may have missed a new model. Inter Ordnance is putting out a damn near identical copy of East Germany's Wieger STG 940. They are making it in two calibers the 223 (nato) and 7.62x39. The major components of the rifle are Romanian. That's why i posted. They claim to have installed Tapco triggers and they say the barrels are hammer forged and have chromed chambers and bores. Guns & Ammo did a test and said it was the most accurate AK they have fired. They were able to get 1.5 inch groups at 100 yards. The stocks and forearms are different and the gas tube system is different. Has a scope mount on left side of receiver. Has an M16 type flash hider, no bayonet lug. Here are two articles you can read about it.

Great site, I stumbled upon it a couple years ago.
Link Posted: 3/20/2008 2:58:06 PM EST
This is a great, and informative site. It would be even better if there was some Romy G information, markings, etc on there as well.
Link Posted: 3/27/2008 9:45:17 PM EST
Will you be including info on the WASR22's?

Link Posted: 11/30/2008 10:03:54 AM EST
A great site. I just got my first ak a few weeks ago. A new bookmark for sure.

I couldn't find my model though. Mine is a 10/63, and I'm not really sure when one of the models listed it would fall under.

I probably just missed it.

Hey all,

New to AK's and new to these AK Forums. SERIOUS props go out to linx310 for his AMAZING Romanian site! So much great info crammed into an easy-to-use site.

There is no way on earth I could have learned so much about my AK in so little time.

I've already ordered the Red Star Adjustable FCG (and by the way, OUTSTANDING company, the shipping was ridiculous fast!!) and am about to drop it in (I have shepards crook #3 in my WASR, linx...there's no WAY I'd do this without your instructions!!).

Anyhow, thanks again linx310 for your incredible site, and thanks to all of you for your help, wisdom, and guidance on what seems to be absolutely everything AK, seems there's at least a dozen experts on every tiny facet of this rifle.

And thanks to the mods here, a forum this huge is sure to be a nightmare to moderate. When perusing this forum it's clear that it's a no BS forum, no catfights, no ego battles, just good solid info and discusssion. That's undoubtedly due to great participants, but the mods too often get overlooked and don't get any credit when it comes to "keeping the peace" and keeping forums on track.

Eternal thanks to all, so glad to be here!
