I ordered a Saiga AK-47 converted by K-Var and plan to eventually have something similar to this:



Travis Haley's AK is bad as shit and I've always liked the look. I didn't have one yet so I decided it was time since I got a real good deal.

That looks damn nice for an AK variant. Is that a 5.56 or 5.45 or 7.62?

I've wanted to add at least one AK variant to my collection for some time now, but it just never happened. Hopefully the frenzy has died down some and I can accomplish that soon.

It's the real deal 7.62x39mm because that's what I wanted my first AK to be. My next one will be an AK74 but I'm trying to decide if I'll do that next or a .338 Lapua bolt gun next. Hell maybe both, I dunno yet.

He has a little more than just a clear mag. He's got countless videos of him in the sandbox sniping towel heads like he's at a carnival. He's a big part of Magpul Dynamics and an all around bad ass. I eat my Weaties and take my vitamins every day in hopes that maybe I can be half the bad ass he is... someday.

Where are these videos at? I can only find vids of his in compitition and one of him sniping with the camera pointing straight at him. That gun is pretty cool though. I have my ak clone, a wasr-10. It shoots really good for what it is even though I know there are a lot better ones out there. I read Russia is going to start enforcing their patent on the ak and try to stop other companies from making it, even though they believe that information and design is free and have no problem letting their citizens copy our designs. We'll see if they can actually stop other countries from making it though.

Any updates, Jer? Nobody got me any guns or anything for x-mas, and I think I need a late gift to myself.

I love that two sided charging handle. I'd love to look into that mod for myself if U get asn AK. Is Haley left handed by chance?

Due to shit weather I didn't get to put it through the paces like I would have liked but I did get to run a few dozen rounds through it to function check it. It was about 20deg below zero wind chill so I wasn't going to get too much into it but it shoots and shoots well. It's pretty fun to shoot and I can't wait to shoot it when it gets nicer out and I can spend some more time with it.

As for the charge handle it's actually just a one-sided that allows you to use your off hange to charge/cycle w/o needing to remove your operational hand from the grip. I thought about buying a kit to change mine out but the more I think about it the more I think I'll just leave it the way it is. I think it's a pretty solid system the way it is (obviously) and don't want to mess w/it too much.

I got to thinking about it, and while it looks cool, I'd realistically charge a rifle with my right hand and grip with my left. I guess it's a non-issue for me.
