I just bought my First Ak today. I purchased a brand new Wasr-10 from a local shop here for 370. It came with a little kit with a sling, and bayonet, and such. My problem is I cant seem to get the bayonet on.

It looks like this picture here

Is there some trick to getting it on. I slide it on like its susposed to and press the little button at the bottom so the teeth go in so i can slide it down to lock into place, but it just doesnt seem to work.

Maybe Im just doing something wrong, I dunno, or I just have aquired the magical touch yet.

BBL means barrrel.

Hmmm... Somethings not right.. Maybe the edges on the gun itself need to be filed down a little. It just wont slide down and lock into place.

Check your bayonet lug. Does it allowed the grip to lock snuggly onto it ??
Link Posted: 2/13/2006 4:29:34 PM EDT
I had the same problem, getting my bayo to click onto the lug and barrel. Might have to open up the hole that slides onto the barrel, or file the bayo lug to fit. Some reason they are very tight. Just work with it, it'll get on there.

What do you mean by doing this.

I just bought a Romanian and can't get my bayonet on either. :(

Very happy with the gun otherwise though.

Sorry to say, but wasr sucks. I would go Vector for first buy

I respectfully disagree. I love mine and it shoots great. Just refinish the wood or slap on some plastic and use the money you saved for ammo!h.gif

One good thing about a WASR, it was factory built!hooter.

Yeah I would have to say I really like mine.
Cheap, decent shooter.
I spent a little money on mine getting a better trigger and getting it refinished in norrell's.
I'm really happy with mine.
No it's not a high end Ak but it's still fun to shoot!
ETA: Not too sucky for a wasr.....

Congrats.

Been thinking about an AK myself. What shop did you go to? What part of Kansas you from?

Let us know how she shoots.

the bayo lug has to be shaved down a little

Im from Bonner Springs. I got it at "The Gun Shop" in Olathe Kansas. Its on rogers road past Sante Fe, on the road right next to I-37. There is also Simmons gun shop a couple buildings away. Me and my friend bought the 2 they had out on the shelves, but I think I seen more in the back.

BTW: My friend got his bayo on with no problem at all. Im guessing I Just need to file it down a little and it should work.

Also Im thinking of refinishing my gun to make it look a little nicer. Are there any guides out there to help me do this. Would I need to take the whole gun apart to refinish the metal to make it look nicer?

Thanks for the help guys.

Cool. I know them well. They are good guys.

Show us pics of your prize when you can.

Normally I mind my own business when people bash Wasr's, I don't own one so I don't have a qualified opinion, but after reading many posts about them good and bad, many people have them and seem to like them (for the most part) they seem like a good entry level AK, with a bit of tweaking can become quite a serviceable rifle.

No one ever claimed an WASR to be a Arsenal,

When I see posts like this it truly saddens me,

"Sorry to say, but wasr sucks. I would go Vector for first buy"

It is sad that someone is that ignorant to insult another's purchase, more tactful ways exist to address the issue of your preference of one manufacture vs another.

all i did was lightly sand down the stock, stained with 2 light coats of olympic "cherry" wood sain and finished with 5 coats of tung oil (or you could do 2 coats poly). really shows off the lamination good.


as far as the metal, i just put some oil in

Hey MYKROWYRE, what slings are those and where did you get them, if you dont mind me asking? They look sweet and are exactly what I've been looking for.

Ok my next project is putting a mount with a new sight/scope. Anyone have any good suggestions for moderately priced ones, not to expensive ( gotta save up for my next purchase :) )

AZhammer, those are some very "heavy" duty slings for sure. Emphasis on "Heavy", they really are quite heavy for a sling. But it will never break due to being too thin either!

Ok, so I took her to a range today. Had to drive an hour, but it was worth it. I couldn't wait any longer to shoot it. I shot 60 rounds and everything was fine and I was having a lot of fun. About halfway through my 4th mag one of the shells ejected and somehow hit my right above my left eyebrow. It suprised me pretty good and was sore but I finished off the mag. I then proceeded to walk over towards the bench to load another magazine when I felt the blood start to drip down my face. I went into the bathroom and just got a paper towel and covered it for a couple minutes and it was fine. It only left a little gash about a cm long not to bad. Gave me a headache so I just took some advil and all is fine now. What a story for my first time out with my gun.

AK's don't use clips, they use mags.

azhammer,
The OD sling like that come with mine,, but IIRC, Centerfire or Tapco used to sell them. I like my WASR10. I have better than 3k though it & still going. I'm not sure if this pic will 'stay' in this post or not so I'll add the link to my site where they're at. I can't see the pics I post on ARF after I post them & refresh... dunno??
