Looks good. How does she shoot? What is the reason for the Bulgarian gas tube rather than factory? Thank for the pictures.

thanks for the comments guys!

It shoots fairly well, averaging 1.5-3 MOA overall (depending on ammo and me, hehe).

I'm using the "modified" Bulgarian gas tube mainly because it has 8 vent holes to vent out the powder residue and carbon after each shot. It cycles properly, so there's still a lot of gas pressure in there to push the piston. I wanted to further reduce felt recoil.

The gas tube is from K-Var, and the modification involved trimming the two rings that normally hold the upper handguard. I'm too cheap to buy an upper handguard and trim that as well, so the bare tube is just sitting on top of the barrel and handguard.

What it also does is keep your action/receiver clean on the inside. From my experience, it has kept the piston cleaner and reduced the amount of gunk blown back into the action. It however spreads a lot of gunpowder residue over the area and if there's not enough ventilation, you breathe a lot of it in. I always shoot at outdoor ranges though.

How do the Polish poly mags. work?

I am thinking of getting some of these but until now did not know anyone who tried them.

Are these the ones from Aim Surplus?

I got the muzzlebrake on mine and i feel almost no recoil whatsoever

I've got a 7.62x39 VEPR and love it. I find it'll shoot three rounds into 2" regulary from a bench. That's great! And that's with Wolf ammo!

I'm running a Kobra on my rifle. It's a neat little sight but for the money I'd probably spend a few $$$ extra and get an EO Tech.

Hey can you put handguards like that on an AMD 65? If so where to get them?
