AK-47

This is my AK-47, which I own purely for the novelty. It is a Romanian-made WASR-10, imported by Century Arms (CAI). It is a marvel of low-quality manufacturing, but I have to admit that I am liking it more and more. It handles well, with little recoil, and I can see why it is so reliable.

Handloading: 7.62x39mm

I have installed a TAPCO "dark earth" folding stock furniture set on this rifle. TAPCO also makes polymer magazines in "dark earth". The rifle looks nice this way. Eventually, I would like to buy a nice birch wood stock set, made by Timber Smith and possibly available through TAPCO.

The polymer magazines that match the stock look nice, but inserting and removing them is difficult due to clearance issues. So for actual shooting, I will stick to steel magazines.

I installed a TAPCO G2 single hook trigger group in this rifle to cure the trigger slap problem. It works great, and the trigger pull seems light.
