I know that the main thread reads for AR but since the Daewoo is a hybrid, can/does it apply here?

How reliable is the Daewoo in its DR-200 offering?

Can a new furniture set be found to replace the thumbhole stock?

If it ever needs to serivced, who or where can I send it off to be worked?

And how does it compare with most of the rifles chambered for the 5.56?

Thanks for the board it is great.

Buzz.

I am sure some of the members will be able to answer your questions. If not try the general firearms discussion forum located under the armory section. Max

I have a DR 200 and it is very reliable. Some of the magazines I have used with it have not locked back after the last round fired but I ahve not had feeding problems. I have put an Ace postban skelton stock w/pistol grip on it to replace the thumbhole stock and like it very much. You have to install the Ace trigger group and use a USA made magazine in order for it to be legal. The cost of the skeleton stock w/pistol grip and trigger group was about $150. As far as parts, I've been holding my breath and hoping nothing breaks on it.

Parts? Forget it. There ain't any, and the durn things break forends, but so far as I can tell that's about the worst thing that breaks [:D] Had a guy on site awhile back who wanted to buy a second rifle to use to cannablize parts for his first piece. That tells you something about parts availability. All that being said, I loved my K1 and wish I had it back[;D]

The following parts are interchangable with an AR15 Entire Trigger group cotter pin that peg thing in the bolt extractor, ejector, spring... Mines firing pin broke due to a FCG problem but I had a new one made at a machine shop.

Install a trigger group and use a USA made magazine for it to be legal? Lost me there. A thumbhole stock, by ATF definition is a pistol grip. Changing to a skeleton stock, with a pistol grip, does not change the legal postban status of a DR200. Changing to folding, or collapsing stock WILL change its legal status. However, your point about changing the trigger group and using a USA made magazine makes no sense at all. There is nothing in the Assault weapon ban about about USA made parts exempting a rifle from its assualt weapon status. Ditto on the magazine. A USA Made magazine does not change any legal status either. TRG

This has nothing to do with the AW ban of '94 and everything to do with the import ban of '89. You know, the one that forced people to start using thumbhole stocks on all the FALs, HK91s, AKs and the DR200. You cannot import a weapon that isn't for 'sporting purposes' and you cannot convert an imported weapon into a configuration that would not be importable. The way around this is to replace enough parts with domestically manufactured parts that the rifle will be 'domestically manufactured' for legal purposes. You still have to comply with the '94 AW ban, but at least you can get rid of the thumbhole stocks. With the Ace DR200 kit you have to use domestic mags to have the required parts content. On the Ace pistol grip kits for AKs and FALs they include domestically manufactured magazine floor plates to get the parts content and the rifle is only legal if you use mags with those replacement floor plates. If you've ever built an FAL from a parts kit then this is something you need to know since so many of the parts or foreign.

Radius, do you have an address to the DR 200 group on Yahoo? I tried to do a search and could not find it. I would like to get an extra firing pin for my Daewoo AR100 Thanks!!

Does anybody know what the rate of twist is for the Daewoo barrel? Thanks! Andy
Link Posted: 11/7/2003 4:49:31 PM EDT
IIRC the Dr200 twist rate is 1 in 12.
