I now own one of these modified AKs from Alliance Armament. I don't know what got into me other than the notion that I would have something no one else on this side of the Mississippi has. All "AA Bashing" from the 'haters aside, ...it's turned out to actually be a decent big bore gun. If you haven't seen one, its a WASR that has been rebuilt (not just rebarreled) into a .458 shooting beast. Alliance used the same case dimensions as the .458 SOCOM, but based the cartridge on the 7mm Rem SA brass. I had an ammo problem right away, but that has been quickly addressed by Alliance and it was not the weapon malfunctioning. It has been fed properly dimensioned ammo ever since. :gun11: So far : 50 rounds through it. seems to be around 6MOA accurate. Well . . . I like strange caliber guns. Any one else in the north west have one of these, or am I the only knothead that bought one?
