    I have decided i want the CA wasr10 (AK) rifle.
    I guess you can say im not a purist.
    I want this to be a modernized weapon system that can be used for
    Range shooting, home defense, tactical rifle training classes, run and gunning etc...

    So anyway here is the layout. i threw together on windows "paint" program.

    If you have had good or bad exp. With any of the items or have any input, please let me know.

    I prefer the larger text photo over the smaller text photo.

    They're a tad bit more expensive but worth if IMO. I had their scope mount on my old AK and it was a rock

    Man. That thing looks way nicer than the tapco... but More than double the money...all aluminum... it weighs ten oz.
    The tapco weighs 9 oz.
    I have handled a rifle with the tapco... it was very solid. No wobble whatsoever.... for the price to feature ratio.. i would prolly go with the tapco. The midwest is way sexier...lol

    The more tacti-crap you put on it, the more specialized it

    becomes. I like my WASR because it's light, fast, and

    simple. (Compensates partially for me being heavy, slow,

    and complicated...) What's a good purpose for a high

    cap mag? Less overall mags to carry! 2-30 rounders is

    60 rounds, that'll do. A holo sight and a lazer? Really?

    Wouldn't a wide black nylon baggage strap, with plastic hardware,

    so your wood furniture doesn't get scratched, be more sensible

    than a tac sling? Do you really want that rifle flopping about?

    I love it when a thread solicits my opinion. I usually provide an opinion when unsolicited, but it's nice to be asked.

    My opinion. ( HOLY SHIP those AK's got expensive. .) Too much crap on it.
    Unless it's a show piece, you know, like a full dress Harley with handle bar tassels and chrome tires..

    I think an AK works pretty good as is.
    Get the AK12 and start with that sucker!

    Well. I want all the modern improvements that people put on AR/black Rifles.....
    Im not getting an ak because i like its looks..... i actually like the looks of AR Rifles better. But the AK Rifles trump the AR in reliability in dirty conditions.... if i can only have one rifle.... the wasr10 is it.

    2 mags may be good for you.
    But i get more piece of mind from having a full combat load....

    The laser and optic. Yes really. They have two different uses. Plus. For $120 the tlr4 led/laser is a good deal


    Blackhawk sells a velcro thing you put on ur belt that secures the muzzle end of your weapon to your body... it stops the flop.. the wood furniture is coming off as soon as possible.

    This is a total myth.

    A crappy ak will jam and have issues just as much as a crappy ar15 under The same conditions.

    A good ak and a good ar15 will have no issues under any conditions.

    I've got a wasr 10/63 solely as a shtf gun because I was able to get a couple thousand rounds of ammo super cheap. My shtf gun is a bravo company ar15 mid length lightweight bfh model.

    I dont care if its a colt, sig, fn, etc..
    The wasr10 will function longer(more rounds) than the AR...
    MYTH MY A%* ... LOL.... I HAVE SEEN IT FIRST HAND.
    I have never had an ak malfunction. I have seen and had AR rifles jam.
    I will say that i have alot more rounds thru AK rifles than AR .
    In my experience.... the ak is mo better... lol...

    I spend a lot of time shooting and doing it with folks from random slices of society. I've seen ak's ftf fte stove pipe or just go click run away full auto when they shouldn't etc. I've seen em jam in arid dusty climates and sever cold.

    Your entitled to your opinion but reality is a harsh mistress I wish ya well.

    I don't have a WASR, but one of my regular shooting buddies had one that we all passed around like a dirty dirty slut. It was always very reliable. He tried a variety of affordable mags; the promag brand seemed a bit better than the rest. Promags are available with a little window to let you get a look at what's left.

    I don't think he was ever truly satisfied with any of the optics he tried, despite the nifty side mount rail setup.

    Shoot the absolute snot out of it.
