WASR 10?

Am considering delaying the purchase of a CAR upper to pick one up...

Question is, how are these compared to, say; an Arsenal SLR101 at 1.5x the price?

Anybody with AK experience et me know.

well I can just tell you that the quility isn't the best, but hey, I paid 350 for it so oh well. It shoots and thats what counts. I would have to say though that it is better quility than what I expected, from the research I did before buying it, it seems the newer they are the better. I have zero trigger slap and only had to file a little bit of the mag well. It took the 30 steels it came with just fine but my Bulgy waffles needed a little more room. The finish is crap it scratches easy but I'm probably gonna recoat it myself, I have alot of painting experiance so I don't think it will be that bad. they only major problem( and this is almost a given with romanians I hear) is that my gas block is slightyly canted to the left. Not enough to effect operation. I'm really looking at a Arsenal Inc SA M-7 Carbine, Fac has them for 538, those look beautiful!

Dude, I had my SLR95 at the shoot. Being milled, it's built like a tank, and I'm sure you may have seen me tossing it into the bushes when it got too hot ( I wonder how that happened?).
Quality is first rate, except for the painted on OEM finish. I'd love to pick up a new Arsenal in 5.45, if they ever make one.

Dang, the wife's convinced we need more AR's, so the AK is getting nixed in favor of another lower...

Looks like I'll just have to fondle yours at the next shoot, M'PX hock.gif

Update: Tonight my buddy ad I straightened out the gas chamber. One pin came out like butter and was able to be reused the other was a loss and had to be drilled out. Then I took a Deadblow hammer and knocked the chamber straight and put the old pin in, he then cut a steel dowel down to fit the second hole and bam all done, oh and instead of tapping the pins in we just pressed them in with a vise. I just couldn't look at the thing being all crooked
