Default Fathers Day Gift, my first AK 47

Put 60 quick rounds thru her today. First time shooting an AK 47, I'm in love already. I love the power....accuracy was not an issue at all. Should I deck it out or stick with wood like a purist?

Keep it as it, or ad a wire folder! Copes and RTG had some good prices on polish folders that look almost identical to the romanian ones.

This gun was originally an RPK, they shortened the barrel to 16" added a flash suppressor and different butt stock

not sure what that has to do with swapping the buttstock for a folder
Believe they still have the same tang.

With the forward grip, I'd put on a folder. For aesthetic reasons only. I have no idea how a wire folder handles.

Exactly what type of AK47 and how much did it cost you? I'm toying with the idea of getting an affordable WASR 10/63 myself.

It's actually a Romanian aes-10 RPK that's been converted to an AK. It's a beast. It's surprisingly well put together. I've heard good and bad about the WASR 10's but more good about the 10/63 than bad. Post a new thread for the best input as I am clearly no expert, with this being my first AK. Once I shot it though I knew I made a great decision

I got a smoking deal, for today's prices, I got it for $500 cash from a gun dealer I know personally. So all told I bought the gun 500 rounds and a shock wave exploding target for 640

500? you got a smokin deal on it. It should have the heavier RPK barrel which will help out if you are shooting longer strings.

Sometimes it's not what you know...its who you know.

Do you know If its common to remake these into AK's I looked around online and couldn't come across any examples like mine. Everything was the RPK with long barrel and bipod. Here's a better pic without the flowery vision backdrop too.
