I picked this puppy up from the NWFA classifieds a little over a week ago because... 1. It was a new build with decent tolerances (for an AK). 2. Decent finish on the metal. 3. The bore is SUPER shiny and sweet throughout. 4. No front sight/gas tube canting. 5. No mag wobble. 6. Had very nice wood on the foregrip... not the crappy "plywood looking" stuff you usually see. 7. My preferred folding stock configuration 8. Decent price. 9. Dealer was a nice guy. :thumbup: The only things I had to buy after the fact was the cleaning rod (I hear its hit or miss getting one with WASRs ) because I like it better than without one, 6 more 30-round mags, a sling, and 1500 rounds of ammo for this piglet! Yesterday I refinished the foregrip... WIN! Here it is compared (prior to the foregrip refinish) to my formerly owned Poly-Tech that resides @ my brother-in-law's house... he won't sell it back to me... the bastage!! (BTW- Reason #10 on why I bought the WASR) The receiver is EVER SO SLIGHTLY thicker metal on Poly-Tech, but IMHO my WASR is right on par with it... plus mine has the lug for a pig sticker... next planned purchase.
