First range report (sort of)
Ok, this is my first try at a range report, so here goes.

I finally shot my Romanian WASR AK rifle this past weekend.
I didn't go to an official "range", I went with a friend onto some of his property which is out of town and a safe distance in the woods.
This is where he shoots his guns because there is a pond with tree stumps sticking out of the water at various distances.

Sorry for the lack of pics, I was using tree stumps instead of paper targets.

Basic AK, original wood stock, no scope just iron sights.
Using Wolf military classic 124gr 7.62x39 FMJ ammo.

I started out simple, shooting at a stump at close to 20 yards. First a single, carefully aimed shot, then a doubletap, then 3 or 4 round rapid fire.
Even when rapid firing, the rounds stayed close to the stump.

I then tried one at about 70 yards using the same single shot, then double tap, then triple tap.
The single shot got the stump dead center, the double tap got it once with the other round splashing in the water about 5 inches beside the stump.
The triple tap had one in the stump and the other two close beside.

That may not sound impressive to some of you, but for me, an AK noob, I was really impressed with the accuracy of the iron sights and the ease of getting on target quickly.

Other than accuracy, the gun performed flawlessly even with the Tapco poly mags that came with it.

I have shot AK's, Galils, AR's, FAL's that belong to friends, but it's more enjoyable when its YOUR gun:D

Interesting. So, your overall impression of the gun was what you were looking for??

Any plans for upgrades?

How about some target pictures at KD ( Known Ranges ) ??

Hello all,
I havent shot the AK at paper yet, so I have no pics of that. I am really happy with the performance of this gun, especially since it's my first "Sport Utility Rifle" :D
Here's a pic of the rifle.

Nice looking AK.

And a quality mattress for it to sleep on as well.

You’re a good gun dad.:D

Lol thanks, Jo da plumbr.
My guns are my children :D

I do plan on changing out the wood stock for a collapsable tapco stock, and I might put some kind of tactical scope or red dot sight on it... I haven't decided yet.
