Default First AK (its a pistol technically)

This is my first AK. Was looking for a rifle but with prices lately couldn't find one that seemed worth the money. One of my LGS had these for $600. Hoping to check 2 things off my gun list because I wanted and AK and a SBR. Going to start working on the paperwork so I can convert this into one soon.

Nice pick up. Did you get the 7.62x39 or the 5.45x39?

7.69x39. I already have a Sig Sauer 516 and wanted something I can feed trash steel case and not bat an eye.

The only thing that is hard about the gun is it might be put together too well. Things like the safety and things will need some work and filing to make them easier to engage. Right now it takes a ton of effort to go from safe to fire. Everything else is rock solid. The bolt hardware etc is great.

After you get 200 to 300 rounds downrange it will start to loosen up.
