well maybe not so shtty, but its still a SAR

Never seen one before so I picked it up.

Its actually surprisingly sturdy.

And no, it doesn't block the sights.

That's not a bad looking SAR at all. And the carry handle seems to fit it well too. Someone has creativity that did that and if it doesn't get in the way of the sights I think it's cool.

I like the notched selector too! Do you have any BHO mags for it? If not make some, or get some Falcon Arms followers and grind those two bumps off inside the top of each magazine.

not bad, when you first told me about it, i was picturing a AR-type carry handle. that one almost looks like it is susposed to be there... almost.

where and how much?

this would be useful on the RPK kit im putting together soon,..that S.O.B. is gonna be a heffer.
but knowing my luck,.. it will just pull the dust cover off and out of its grooves and my RPK will fall down to the ground.

Man you AK guys are so much more forgiving than the black side of the house

Anyway, no I dont have any BHO's. The selector I notched on a whim. Its got a setscrew fsb to fix the horrific cant that it had.

I picked up the carry handle off the EE last week. Honestly I'm surprised how sturdy it is. There were concerns about it pealing the top cover off, but that is not an issue. Its on there purdy good.

Now I just got to get the barrel threaded.....or, buy more ammo

I could see it maybe on a hvy bbl RPM but is kinda looks out of place and oversized on the standard AK.
Just my opinion though.

Would look good with a wood grip too.

We know.

We're all about enjoying cool AKs and not telling each other that our uber tactical acc's are better than yours.

I thought slings were for carry?

I guess it makes sense to have if you carry that thing around like grandma's purse.

so how do you / would you carry a FAL?

heh, here's a couple more guns that I "carry around like grandma's purse."



By the way...

I am looking for a carry handle for my RPD too..did anyone ever one for this sort of beast? If anything it needs one cause she's heavy when loaded:

I saw that carry handle...or one similar on the EE. I was going to buy it, but I didn't think it would be that secure. I think it's pretty cool, actually.
Link Posted: 2/10/2006 3:55:23 PM EDT
This is the one you saw.

its very sturdy!

you carry it by the little metal handel on the side of the drum.

ggllggll, man you have way too many cool toys for one man to possess! I see the 4 wheeler tires in the background and I can only imagine what you drive, a Hummer perhaps? Just teasing and being a wee bit jealous! It all looks great, keep sharing with us! Some folks golf or fish, we shoot.

That looks teh ghey.
Link Posted: 2/10/2006 7:14:40 PM EDT
interesting design. Still I wonder why it leaves me feeling sick to my stomach.

Handles like that look great on a FAL or G3/G3 knockoff, but an AK?

An RPK I suppose I could see, but a carbine with a 16.5" bbl.?

I think I am gonna heave...

One hand on the pistol grip, either slung or the other on the handguard.

And if you can't see the difference between carrying an AKM and an M1919 you deserve to be stuck with something as fruity as a carrying handle on the former.
