I just picked up my first AK platform today. A RAS 47 by Century arms. What are some mods that k recommends? The only one I think i would need is a Nato length wood stock as the Warsaw style one is a little short for me. I have plans to use this as a pig stick or brush gun. Any advice?
theres a pic of it in better light. Would I have been better off with a WASR?
Shit bro I would have contacted a az bro and bought a nicer rifle at jandg for less
>pic related my wasr I paid 630otd last month
Ouch. Well, hopefully you'll get your money's worth for the rifle. How does it shoot?
As for the stock, NATO length is nice, but you can just buy a butt pad as well. Assuming the side mount is Warsaw Pact (is that still the correct term?) standard, get a nice side mount and a red dot or 1-4x optic.
Also, I like the Serbian surplus bolt hold open mags, but that's just me.
>im out around 900
Anon, that's a $500-550 rifle......
Enjoy your face while you can OP, please post when it blows up
i do plan to put on a small scope. ive still got to do my homework for it. ive got till next year to figure it out for the pigs. i plan to play around with the coyotes in nevada untill then
That doesn't explain why it's selling for almost double its actual value.
What makes California any different anyway? They have to clamp a bullet button to it? That's it, right?
Is there just a dearth of gun stores, and they're all run by the jewiest jews that ever jewed?
This doesn't make sense.
Do you mean on the hand guards, for something like a flash light? Go light then, anon. It's already a front-heavy rifle.
Also, do not go with shit ammo if you're planning on hunting hogs. Find a good soft point or polymer tip that groups well and expands reliably. Too much of the soviet SP/HP doesn't expand worth a damn.
its just happy merchants trying to merchant.
everyone is going crazy buying the guns while they can before this glorious state throws out the bands. when i got the rifle the owner of the store told me i was the fifth person he sold that same rifle to. theyre just flying off the shelves.
supply and demand man. they cant get them in fast enough
Will you be hunting at dawn/dusk? If so, get something with a lit reticle.
How's your eyesight? If it's still pretty good, nearly any 1-4x is fine. If not, Primary Arms has a 1-6x that's not priced equivalent to highway robbery.
i meant the railed side mounts for optics above the receiver. im thinking about swaping out the grips and stock for one of the plastic ones just to make it lighter, ill have to take it out a few times before i make that call, see if its worth losing the weight, my grillfriend has already complained that its too heavy for her
you also probably dont have a stupid as fuck bullet button or 10 round mag limits
they had yugo m70s with cheap thumb hole stocks and gritty feeling plastic forgrips, id have to order a wasr online
You should've just waited and got a WASR, I picked up a 10/63 up at knob creek a in 2014 with 10 steel mags and 2 spam cans of red army standard ammo for less then what you paid.
Sorry fellow Kalibro, I am North LA bro, I ordered a WASR and I was out maybe 650 after everything was said and done, you should have just ordered from Atlantic. I hope its more accurate than my WASR, but I understand its not really going to compete with my AR that I spent twice as much on. Myself I haven't picked any accessories up for it yet, but I kinda like the Fagpul stock myself don't know if I'd go with that hand guard though.
>900 for that
Bro I got my vepr for 600 not too long ago, holy shit you're being jewed in that state. Why not move to the US? It's not too far away! I mean if those Syrians migrants can come all the way from yemen and iraq you can too!
its only been hunting rifles, shotguns and truck headlights here. i havent had a need for any milsurp gear, i still dont have a need for it.
just trying new stuff i dont know alot about mang
bullet button is held on with 5 allen key screws. less than 3 minutes to take off but the whole felony if im caught says i wont fuck with it unless im over state lines
ive got that metal piece there blocking my thumb so i cant change mags with out a screwdriver or my car keys to press the release
Decent wood won't hurt or you can Re do it. Side rail is best rail for a optic like a red dot or a 7.6 x39 comp. Scope , pin retainer , also a diffrent muzzle device.
Either way mags ammo and drums are the way to go.
All of us feel this way. 562 reporting. Been a gun owner for 5 years now. After 2014, the gun laws in California got absolutely insane. They just introduced a law that would outlaw center fire rifles with detachable magazines just a few days ago. I can't wait to leave this god forsaken hell hole. http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2016/01/foghorn/california-lawmakers-introduce-bill-to-ban-all-centerfire-semi-auto-rifles/
You and the rest of the union. Buy while you can! I wouldn't be surprised if the 2nd amendment isn't all but neutered for the lower 48 in 20 years. Also, I mean to say "Bill" and "could" instead of "Law" and "would" in my last post.
A similiar bill has been introduced in the past, I believe it happened just after Sandy Hook, but Governor brown didn't sign the proposed bill. How fortunate! Hopefully he does the same thing again.
I realize now I shouldn't have prematurely busted my money load on a wasr and just saved up a bit more to get a nicer quality ak and I wouldn't even worry about it. Not to mention I die a little inside everytime I pull the slide back because its such a rough motion.
>its just happy merchants trying to merchant.
and a stupid child snatching up the first shiny object he saw, spending twice as much as he should have.
level with us OP, you turned 18 like a week ago didnt you?
>didn't buy the red version of the cap
