WASR-10 Romanian,paid $319 for it with 2 mags,sling,bayonet etc...

Now I've never owned an AK and honestly I don't know much about them,it was either buy this or spend more to get my RRA AR upper.

Thoughts/Comments

What can I do to this thing? What should I expect out of it,should I do a major cleaning on it to get the cosmoline out etc...

What's wrong with the folding stock? I paid $10 extra for that

Congrats and welcome to the dark side

I'm betting this won't be your first or only AK

Hey Ghetto,

Is that an Aim Surplus deal?

I've got one coming also so I want to know what to expect.

I've been reading this Romanian AK to learn all I can.

Good Shooting!

most people who get them tend to dislike them after a little while, that and the tapco folders have some issues with breaking

No one has mentioned the good part yet. There is a guy on the board named Ken who has a
whole Harem of Hot Single Women he spreads around to Us Dark Side Guys.


This is Ken's Receptionist, Wettie. He sent her over to my place just last week.

16" A3 midlength.

I've found some great prices,I just need to buy it,I already have a finished lower.

Hopefully I can go shoot the AK next weekend,can't wait!!
Link Posted: 1/21/2006 4:21:50 PM EDT



thats how my wasr-10 looked when i got it,....
i never like the way the stock felt when fired it,..
and mag wobble is not a problem with new mags.

but heres how mine looks now,..the wood is from a "G"kit



ive got a extra butt stock, top hand guard,. and vertical grip hand guard. let me know if you wanna trade for your regular handgards

Cruizie27, you might have a problem with your U.S. parts count since you installed funiture from a kit. Remeber you need the correct number of U.S. parts to keep your gun legal.

Nothing like the parts count police. You know sometimes gun owners are there own worst enemies. People should really mind their own business.

I don't see the big deal, it was a friendly reminder. Some new folks here may not be aware of 922 or compliance issues.

ark-and-spark i'm not the police and i'm also not the one putting pics of an illegal gun on the web. People new to AK's don't always know the stupid laws we have to deal with. I was just trying to give a heads up, sorry if I offended you. On second thought no i'm not, piss off.

How do you know it's illegal? Im sure he has US followers, floor plates, FCG and gas piston. I'll keep to myself the rest of the nice things I have to say about people like you. If you really just wanted to send him a friendly reminder about how you cant mind your own fucking buisness parts count you could have taken it to I.M.

i like keeping my rifles compliant...but if one slips out...I dont worry about the men in black showing up to shoot me and my dog (i dont even have a dog)....I dont leave the house with a rifle thats not compliant however. find me ONE case in which a rifle that wasnt compliant was used against someone in a court of law (unless they were gun runners, drug dealers or shot up a school)....regular joe schmoe who gets pulled over speeding...officer john doe isnt going to have him rip his rifle apart to prove its 922 compliant.

look down the top of the rifle and see if either of the sights seem to be tilted to the left or right.

for trigger slap, you're going to have to shoot it to find out, if your finger hurts after shooting, then you've got trigger slap. look at the trigger group, if they say TAPCO USA then you're good to go, that is the G2 trigger group and is a good setup.
Link Posted: 1/22/2006 9:13:38 AM EDT
Welcome, now what you need is ammo. There is an ammo shortage right now so its gonna be a while until you can break in that rifle properly!
BUT, get mags while they are cheap and shoot it until you get the feel of the rifle!

Ammo is trickling in now. Sportmans Guide is stocked again. Got my case in a few days ago.

The beauty of the AK, is that you don't do anything to them - except for blast the crap out of them.


Forget the notion of "accessorizing it"

that is the domain of the other Black rifle.

The most people generally buy for their AK's is ammo, mags, a sling, and a case to carry it in

Well I just ordered 500rd of Wolf HP for $60.95 shipped. Won't be available until Feb 1 though

I just got a romanian folding stock for my wasr and I really like it. I think it cost 60 bucks maybe. I got it from copes dis. I didn't want the crapco cause' I figured it would probably just snap in my hands.

they're out from time to time. I stopped on the way back from the show at the one on 1960, they had just restocked, $2.85 a box of 20 rounds. Can't beat that.

call around the ones in Houston, you'll find one that has some. That stuff does sell out fast though when they get it in.
