Functional and acceptably accurate. Feel very primitive when compared to sporting arms of western countries.
They are a good, inexpensive start tho. Lots of people have them and there's always a buyer if you need to unload it for some reason.
Watch that the front sights are straight and not "canted". I don't know why that is such a prevalent issue w/them, but it is.
I don't have one, but I'm currently doing the due diligence in my search for an AK. I've handled and fired four WASR 10's now. Like I said...primitive, utilitarian, reliably functional, and very popular. That is what I've taken from my time spent with them.
If you could only own but one firearm, you could do worse for sure.
