    I took my SAR 3 and AK sight adjustment tool over to the range to sight it in at about 25 yards. It was a lot of fun and zeroed in quite well.

    The rifle came with what I believe is a modified AK 74 mag (done by CAI), but it only feeds well with about 20 rounds. I bought some Bulgy AK 74 mags and loaded them each with 20 rounds (I didn't try to load more than that). They worked really well and I didn't even have to mod them! The mags only cost $10 each. I also took some Bulgarian "Circle 10" 5.56x45 mags that I moded by filing down the back a bit. Those work the best. No feeding issues at all. I really like my Romy SAR 3.

    That is one beautiful AK you got there brother!

    Glad everything worked well at the range for ya. Let me know how those mags work out for you after modification. That's been the only thing (mag availability) that has held me back from getting an AK in that chambering.

    Glad to see there's still some fellow AKers around here.

    Thanks. I refinished the wood myself. I have a lot of fun doing it. The easiest and most relaible mod consists of simply filing down the back of the Bulgarian 5.56 magazines. You don't even have to do it that much either. They feed 100% and are readily available.

    Right on. I guess I just haven't got around to researching it enough.

    Where did you pick up that fine AK, if you don't mind me asking?

    I got it via Gun Broker, from some small shop out of Florida (don't recall the name). It cost me $450. It came with poly furniture, but I had to swap it for the wood ASAP.

    Thanks. Here's a nice looking SAR 3 on GB. It's currently going for $350, with 2 bids.
