are wasr 10/63s crap?
 
I hear they are hit and miss some have canted sights loose wobbly magazines wobbly handguards, gas leaks ect. Are these rifles really that bad? Does anybody own one? Can you fix it up n make it run like a champ? If anyone owns one please tell me what you think about it I'd like to hear from the owners any problems? Post pics if you can! :D

I dont have one. But as others said and you said.. they are hit and miss. Some are great with no problems or sort ever. And anyway it is a decent price AK. Can't expect it to be the better or best one. Im sure others who own them will give their opinions.

I had one, went everytime but accuracy wasn't the best, it was ok but not like a at at 100 yards

With a little bit of work they aren't ugly anymore. Zero problems, had some double feeds but that was from a warn out mag spring

I've had a couple. The first one was an early one and it was pretty rough. It was 100% reliable, didn't group really well with any ammo but was still reasonably accurate.

The one in the picture above is a more recent version and it seems that it is put together a bit better than the first one I had. It too has been reliable with FMJ, HP, and sift point ammo. It does actually group fairly well. It was spray painted black from muzzle to butt when I got it. It took a little work to clean all the spray paint off and refinish the wood. It has some mag wobble, but not as bad as some.

Look for versions that have dates in the 1970s on the trunions along with a triangle with an arrow in it. They seem to be made with newer unused parts and seem to be out together better.

Have one and I am quite happy with it. Recently put in a bumpski with a 75 round Romainian drum on it. Then began shooting it. It was all over in less than eight seconds. Powerful! :D

Happy as hell with mine.

I bum one from a buddy of mine on a regular basis and it is reliable.
