Default Ak 47 wasr 10/63

I'm leaning toward the purchasing of a AK 47 GP WASR 10/63. Will look out for canted sights, matching serial numbers, and Tapco trigger. Any ideas along this line of query? Has anyone ever purchase the WASR 10/63? (Not the WASR 10).

I got lucky with my purchase on my WASR 10/63 my only "off" serial # was that on my spring recoil assembly, but it can be hopeless for some guns. I've found that the early 80's WASR 10/63 were of the best pick with little high jack. Being that I'm form the people republic of New York hacked WASR are almost guaranteed. But my favorite 3 things about my WASR was that G2 trigger LH threaded barrel and almost perfect matching serial#

Bought my WASR 10/63 five+ years ago, cherry picked it from a bunch the vendor had at a gun show. No problems, no malfunctions to speak of. No trigger slap and it does have the Tapco G2 trigger. The bolt did catch on the hammer a little at first but only when I hand cycled slowly. Never a stoppage when firing and it did smooth out over time. (This is a common issue with the WASR.)

It was old enough to be a ban gun so had the welded muzzle nut which I hacksawed off and screwed on a flash hider. No bayonet lug either but the sights and gas tube were straight. It also didn't have the triangle marking that's supposed to indicate WASRs that passed military inspection - so mine might have military reject parts but it doesn't seem to matter. I've been very satisfied. It has the original chrome lined barrel, I'm not sure if today's WASR has that barrel or a non-chrome lined US barrel. Hear reports both ways on this.
