New AK Owner
 
I just got an Century International Arms AK-47 WASR 10/63. :D

I sighted it in at 100 yards then shot a 2.125" 3 shot group, unfortunately Photobucket is buggy right now and I can't upload the image... but here is a video of some shots at 250 and 400 yards.


I was using TulAmmo 122gr HP, average velocity was about 2350fps. I was planning on reloading the ammo for this but that is pretty good precision.

I need to get or make a sight tool as to heighten the front sight, it hits about 8 inches high at 100 yards.

I like it a lot; and now need to become proficient with it's operation.

Congratulations on getting your AK.

When you get a chance try the TulAmmo 154 gr SP and see what you think.
My Saiga really does well with them.

I'll try it for sure.

Thanks!

Have you noticed any of the normal Wasr complaints, or is everything picture perfect. And a sight tool will run you about $5-$10 on midway

Two thumbs up! :) I, too, have a WASR 10/63. Great investment.

I've had mine for over a year now and its just fun to shoot! I used it to shoot down a 7" oak tree this weekend! We heat with wood so it was both work and pleasure:D

I just got a WASR 10/63 a few weeks ago. The two magazines I of with it were complete trash but contacted Century and they got me two brand new ones. Tapco magazines still work best from what I've seen. Other than the initial magazines, I'm extremely pleased with my purchase!

It sounds as if their quality has improved greatly from all the trash I've heard about them in the past. I shot Downsouth's, and loved it. I may have to rethink an SKS... IDK...

The mags I use work wonderfully as well as the ProMag 30rd polymer mag I bought recently.
