Wasr-10/ak

im going to the local gun store tonight to check out a wasr-10 and probably buying it if i like it. i've heard that they arent the best ak's but they are good for the money. was wondering if anyone here has one, what is your opinion on it? also do they come with a rail for a red dot? can the wood parts be swapped with black synthetic parts? thanks in advance.

Re: Wasr-10/ak

i have like 3 of them in my store. to me they fell very cheaply made for the prices that they are selling at now.
i believe that theu can have the stocks replaced, and no there is not a rail for a red dot. that does not mean that you can not make one or have one fabbed up by a compitant gun smith. if it were me i would save for something better in quality and cheaper on rounds.

Re: Wasr-10/ak

I hear they're not the best also, but "the best" is pretty damn expensive, and seems kinda counter to the AK philosphy.

A WASR has to be of better quality than the other AK clones in the hands of soldiers, insurgents, pirates, etc. use to deadly effect all around the world. The ammo seems to be pretty readily available right now, and prices are almost down to the pre-Obamamania levels on that round.

Re: Wasr-10/ak

I've enjoyed my wasr-10....no problems at all. It's not the nicest or the best fit and finish, but it's plenty accurate for my shooting ability and it goes bang every time. I may end up getting a cheapie rail system for it, probably tapco as it doesn't seem to make a lot of sense spending a ton of money on it.

Re: Wasr-10/ak

No issues ever with any of the multiple Wasr-10s I've owned. Ultimak rail is what I'd recommend.

Re: Wasr-10/ak

Ive shot a few. You already got it but it would have been best if you saved up a little and picked up a Yugo AK.

Meh...for general plinking he's good. Shit, I'd even trust my cheap WASR in a SHTF situation. None of my WASRs have ever choked with all types of ammo I've fed it and is plenty accurate up to 100 yds. I know someone who's got over 20,000 rounds through his and is yet to clean it and it runs with zero issues.

Re: Wasr-10/ak

just got back from the range. had a blast shooting this rifle. put 180 rounds though it without any hiccups. right out of the box it is accurate to at least 75 yards (i was on a 75yd range) without messing with the sights at all. the 5 round mag it came with is tight but the two 30 round mags i bought do wobble side to side slightly. nothing to bad though. the wood on the gun is not to great but i wasnt expectiing it to be. overall its a great rifle for the money, glad i got it.

Re: Wasr-10/ak

Yes the magazines on the Wasr-10 will wobble. IIRC there is a certain brand that makes magazines that wobble very little compared to the original ones.

Re: Wasr-10/ak

If you get the polymer waffle magazines they wont wobble because they are thicker plus they are lighter then the steel magazines. There are also a ton of modifications that can be done to get your ideal weapon. Here are some of my favorite sites:

For a short second, I considered sanding down the wood and putting some truoil on it....then I took a look at the rest of my beat up, stamped receiver and decided it wasn't worth the time.
