Other than several of the commonly-kvetched-about AK annoyances – like a short sight radius, a loud-ass “alert-the-enemy” safety switch, a bolt that doesn’t stay open once the gun is empty, and an Oompa-Loompa-short stock (common to most original AK variants) – firing the WASR-10 was no problem at all.Honestly, Todd and I had a blast, without a single malfunction all afternoon (and we used only the cheapest factory ammo).
For some folks, a gun that feels so unbound that it could possibly be a Transformer hiding in your gun safe just won’t cut the mustard.
Also, other than the WASR 10/63, what are other variants of the AK-47 that are considered to be a good value? I have a Ruger Mini-30 that gets more difficult to love every time I shoot one of my foreign rifles in that caliber. Compare the front and rear lugs of the mags that work to the mags you just got.
The lugs may need to be trimmed, you could also trim the mag latch, but best to trim the mag and leave the rifle alone.

Saiga rifles are a good bang for the buck when you can find them, there have been some really good deals on them recently.
That formula appealed to Todd, just as it’s appealed to several hundred million other users.
