https://www.circle10ak.com/product/blem-zastava-zpap-m70-7-62x39mm-bulged-trunnion-no-furniture/I'll be a fag and repost since I was at the tail end of the last thread. Does something like this ship as a rifle or when I do paperwork can I start its life as a pistol with the intent to add a brace? Similar to their M92.
>>48422045I answered the question though.This is more of a FFL question anyway, as long as you can get your FFL on board then you're fine.
>>48422045The description states Rifle.
>>48422045Once a rifle, always a rifle.
>>48422048I know, and you gave a good answer. It never hurts to get more answers though. >>48422057>>48422059Fug. Eh that's ok, one day I won't live in fucking East Berlin.
>>48422014Ok, this is the project I want to get done this year. 7.62 tok al. Budget around $2200 all in. I want it to be suitable to run Kalash Bash in Ocfober. Haven't done too much research yet, but a 9mm seems to be the most efficient base to start with. Have any of you weirdos done one of these or shot one? Ideas on a base gun, mag solution, barrel source, etc?
I'm not from Texas, faggot.
>>48422064Honestly the other anons might be right now that I think about it, the sporter furniture was probably taken off making it once a rifle always a rifle, I think your best bet in getting a title 1 other is by getting a kit built with a brace and vertical foregrip on it.
>>48422088Only steers and queers come from Russia, and I don't see any beef.
>>48422083You building it? Because I'm trying to finish my Krink build and there isn't a gas tube or dust cover anywhere in the United States.
>>48422097>you building it?I think that's my only hope with the budget. A buddy has accumulated all the necessary tools to build AKs and we have some kits to put together. I'm thinking I'll start with a complete donor gun and rebarrel it, and make other modifications as necessary. Apparently 7.62 tok works from a 9mm or a 5.45 bolt, so I'm thinking of starting with a draco 9mm. I know fuck all about what it will take to make this thing work from there, so any resources are appreciated.
>>48422127>>48422083Tbh, I'd go full balls to the wall and start with a KP/KR-9.
>>48422088What BUTT STOCK is that ?
>>48422317Wouldn’t you like to know, faggot.
>>48422088POCCNR STRONG )))
the fox sucks? people that actually shoot their guns, can you confirm this?
we getting this too foxchads?
>>48422506Complete nonsense, where are all the broken AKs because they only had a 1 mm receiver and not a 1.5 mm? it's not a fail point for AKs.Barrel bronzing? Wtf is that? You can change the furniture to anything you want and the classic furniture doesn't have a problem with fragile furniture it's basically milspec not sure about the colored stuff atlantic puts on it.Also the Zpap is blued so it's more prone to rust unlike paint over park.
isnt russia bff with china? can they get xi to lift the sanctions the US placed on them?
Imagine a world where carrying a weapon would be seen as absolutely normal like wearing socks.Man i got tears in my eyes.
>>48422452>>48422476No i mean the MODERN BUTT STOCK on the rifle on the right.
>>48422506That hurt my brain to read. Straight out of Arfcom circa 2010. I guess boomers use plebbit now.>rifle isn't durable because the paint changed color after I magdumped and I chipped the wood when I threw it in the bed of my new F-150This is what happens when ARfags start buying AKs.
>>48422542>isnt russia bff with china?Uhhh...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sino-Soviet_splitThat being said, they have better relations with each other than either of them does with the United States. If the USA declared war on one, the other would join in against us as well.
Anyone have any experience with the JCOMP Gen2 for the AK?
>>48422088How does that FAB defense dust cover rail install?
>>48422628Looks like a MagPul MOE AK stockhttps://magpul.com/firearm-accessories/stocks/ak-akm/moeakstock-ak47-ak74.html
>>48423117Looks like the AR stock to me, with a buffer tube adapter.
>>48423122Yeah you might be right.
>>48422521Stop quoting youtubers word for word if you want people to take what you say seriously
>>48423362Who am I quoting dumbass?
>>48422521>1mm receivers can't get banged upHave you ever gone outdoors with your rifle?
>>48423366Show me an AKM that failed because it only had a 1 mm receiver.
>>48422511>double the quantity They need to fill a container ship wtf are they doing.
>>48423364Mishaco you wanna be sly cunt
>>48423379He might have said that same thing but so have others, in these past generals I've said that 1mm receivers aren't a problem when 1.5 mm tards come out of the wood work to say that every AK without that is shit.
>>48423369>that failedI can't say I've seen one literally explode, but I have definitely seen a WASR 10/63 with a receiver that had the top bent in at both sides to the point where it would affect cycling/BCG travel. Don't ask me how it happened, I seriously doubt it came from the factory that way, but you get my point. A thicker receiver is going to hold up better to bubba hackjobs, rednecks running them over, or whatever the fuck else could possibly happen to a rifle.
>>48423434Yeah obviously 1.5mm is sturdier, but they are so much heavier that you really have to ask yourself if its worth it.
Ray my gats
Do Beryls have anything special about them?I want to do polish larp, but $2k for a 556 AK is fucking nutsWas hoping I could just buy a different 556 AK and do it up for the larp
>>48423736>Ray my gats>>48423589It's really not that dramatic a difference imo, the AK is not the rifle you're going for if you're looking to minmax for weight savings and accessories.
>>48423767they have a lot of the mil beryl’s features so that’s pretty unique and special. The gun market doesn’t work on a price = “more good” ratio
What does "converted" mean in ak context?
>>48424050cucked -> chad
>>48422654That’s how casual gun owners think. Reddit is infested with them.>buy surplus Yugo grip off Reddit marketplace>guy he likes my “RPK thing” that I had posted (it’s an M72 I built)>enthusiastically thanks me and says to reach out for all my zpap needs>mfw going on an M72AB1 buildNice guy but clearly a casual gun owner who bought an AK for the memes or whatever
>>48424050Could be a AWB era AK that is converted to a normal AK, could be a AK that is still in the configuration it's imported to a standard configuration.
>>48423784I'm sure you can find and buy things like the dog tail rail elsewhere and plop in on a different AK
>>48424075Oh, so importers have to fuck the guns up to get them imported and then the consumer has to fix them?
>>48424120Yeah basically, AoA sells them in the cucked configuration for people do have converted themselves and they are like $300 cheaper.
Just got 1040 rounds of Monarch 7.62x39mm for $380 after tax. How fucked am I?
>>48424141Pretty good price honestly shits kinda fucked.
>>48422511If you don’t already have an AK pistol yes get it
>>48424141Fuck you neets who can camp outside of Academy every morning like you're trying to score a Nintendo Wii while the rest of us actually have to go to work.
>>48424136What parts commonly need converting?
>>48424175I had just gotten off work when I got there, I work Tour 1
>>48424200The magwell is usually single stack, and the muzzle has a muzzle nut tack welded on or the barrel isn't threaded.Also it has a thumbhole stock.
>>48423736Nice rays.Damn i'm depressed today. It's one of those day where everything is fucking up. Like i went to buy some food, and a fucking yoghurt fell from a shelf and exploded like a grenade, my left shoe and the lower part of my jeans smells like a milkish mango now.
>>48424120>>48424136>barrel unthreaded>no muzzle device spring or detent>thumbhole stock>metal plate tacked over pistol grip hole>single stack magwell with welded supportsThe Fox conversion is magnitudes easier than the Saigas of yesteryear. Those needed entire barrel components and triggers moved around.
>>48424175Not him but I work at a gun shop so I get to pick this stuff off the top of the shipments for wholesale price before it even gets taken out of the crate lmao. Some of us both work and are able to score.
>>48424310Yeah it is a pretty easy conversion. Hand thread the barrel, whack the little tack weld out for the pistol grip with a hammer and chisel, dremel the mag well out with the guide that AoA has on their site, and if you care dremel the cutouts for the bayonet lug.
>>48424310You only save like $200 tho.
>>48424367I want to dremel out the bayonet lug but I can't find any guides online.
>>48423736Go back to Plebbit.
>>48424371I saved $326
>>48422014I shot at an armadillo the other day with my MPi AKS74NK and flinched low. Then I lost a bullet in the snow.I am upset for what the ammunition panic has done to me.
>>48424311Yes, but I don't have to deal with fudds on a daily basis, so who's the real winner here?
>>48424408You wouldn't have missed if you had imagined you were shooting at Mark LaRue.
Fox chad at work, hate IT and want to quit. Have a newborn at home and feeling like prospects for getting out of the city to buy some land with a job that isn't shit aren't great. Have a few assets but no degree and feeling pretty blackpilled at 35. Any advice snobs
>>48424408>I shot at an armadillo the other dayGood. Fuckers are getting way too common in places they shouldn't be. Ugly little disease carrying fucks.
>>48424431Murder-infantcide-suicide.Or stop being a pussy. Just be glad you have a job, a family, and are surviving.
>>48424431Work fucking sucks. I'm fucking sick of having to deal with retards. The more time pass, the more i'm under the impression that the population gets dumber and dumber.
>>48424371My sporter cost less than $700 after tax/shipping. Was able to set up with the furniture and parts I needed for less than $1000 total. This was in comparison to buying a complete Fox for ~$1000 at the time, and still having to source the furniture I actually wanted for an additional $250-$300.>>48424377Also skipped the bayonet lug myself, but may just do mine with the edge of a flat file since I don't have access to a mill any longer.>>48424431I can feel that. Personally, I'm waiting to see what happens when the foreclosure/eviction moratorium finally stops getting extended. Knowing my luck I'll just keep getting priced out though.
>>48424483If you ever do it let me know, I'll try to copy you.
>>48422083I thought about converting a KP9, but the magwell would need to be modified since the stock mags don't fit 7.62x25
>>48424489Will try and 3D print a simple jig when I do mine, but it would be easy enough to do freehand. Just make sure you get your first strokes straight and even, and measure against another AK bayo lug if you have one handy.
>>48424440I've been sending them back to random texan addresses in trash bags with a warning letter for 3 years now.
>>48424501IIRC, underneath the plastic magwell on KP9 there is a standard AK sized magwell. If you could source/build an adapter that might work out well.
>>48424531Based. What state are you in? We've been getting this fuckers in KS, getting really tired of seeing these crunchy little niggers on the side of the highway.
>>48424449Yeah you're probably right. Problem is my job is boring and I never have much of anything to do, it's super demoralizing. Wanna feel useful.
>>48424549>IIRC, underneath the plastic magwell on KP9 there is a standard AK sized magwell.Nope.
>>48424558Oh no, poor baby boy is bored at work! How terrible!
>>48424556OK, there's a ton of them and theyre spreading since nothing eats them
>>48424431It could be worse, I move Californians into my state for a living. At least by the end of this year I can get out of this shithole.
>>48424561Hmmm, I just looked at mine and while I can't take it apart, you can see the standard magwell shape extending past the front of the plastic housing. Also seems like it's riveted through what would have held a standard mag release on the rear.If not, maybe a Nak/Pak-9/Wasr-9 might be a better choice anyways for such an experimental project.
>>48424618Got some land? If you're within a couple hours of the border, I'd come and help remove 'dillo.
>>48424629It's not an actual AK magwell under there because the KP-9/KR-9 has a shortened receiver.
>>48424639Small plot of friend's land I keep the meth people away from and in return get to hunt it. Snow shows there's at least 1 left. I'd have you if I had a larger lot to myself and maybe that'll happen sometime soonish. Tulsa area btw.
>>48424649It's shortened, but not enough to get into the magwell area. They're the same size cutout as a standard AK.
>>48424668I'm only two hours away, kek. Would be worth it though. Hopefully you get some land. Do you guys have feral hoggers there too?
>>48424725Guess I could be wrong but that doesn't sound right.
>>48424431Save enough money so you can recover after the divorce
>>48424417Fair point. Ouch.I actually do have fudd retired boomers on social security lining up at the door 45 minutes before we even open asking if our 18 wheeler of ammo has come yet for the morning, and I have to explain that we aren't a big box store like Academy or Bass Pro and we don't get 18 wheelers of ammo every morning, and to go away until we open. It's hard not to say "you should've gotten all the ammo you wanted when we had 4 years of record low prices and ready availability, now fuck off. You can't have mine." Some of them have stockpiled ammo but most of them don't.
>>48424756I think it would be worth the land to hunt and lease. A lot of areas are climbing in value too. As for coming here for shooting, not the plot I watch after, it's rare I see anything and the public land is normally pretty cleared out. I'm considering leasing someone else's land right now for $800 year because its size and I know there are hogs and coyote on it. I've never seen a hog at all anywhere but other people have and I've seen their marks some places.
>>48424925>saying "I've got mine" to the boomersThis is probably the only based instance of using the "I got mine" line. Fuck boomers.
>>48424925To be fair, nobody thought Trump would lose (because he didn't lose).
>>48424941I was sure Trump wouldn't get a second term even in 2017, and have thus spent the last 4 years buying up all the ammo, guns, and mags I wanted because I knew there was a very good chance this would happen. The way I saw it, if Trump lost, I would've gotten guns, ammo, and mags at rock bottom prices while the bottom of the market had fallen out. And if Trump won, I still would've gotten guns, ammo, and mags at rock bottom prices while the bottom of the market had fallen out.
>>48424930>I think it would be worth the land to hunt and lease.Yeah >A lot of areas are climbing in value too. Fucking Californians mang>As for coming here for shooting, not the plot I watch after, it's rare I see anything and the public land is normally pretty cleared out. I'm considering leasing someone else's land right now for $800 year because its size and I know there are hogs and coyote on it. Based>I've never seen a hog at all anywhere but other people have and I've seen their marks some places.You can bait them in OK, right?
>>48424431DCA into crypto. Don't try to day trade or chase retard shitcoin pumps and don't look at the price just buy a little bit every paycheck regardless. I've been doing it for a few years now and my relatively meager investment is more than enough to completely pay off my house right now. Or I've got enough startup capital to do whatever. I don't know how long I'll keep waging with a kid on the way too but the wife wants to gtfo from the liberal cities so she's on board and my brother and his fiancee will probably join us.
>>48424980Would you like to invest in an up and coming gear company? :)
>>48424431>literal bugman blueshttps://youtu.be/ZFEA0-iqIeA
>>48424963Yeah, I managed to pick up a handful of my dream guns over the past few years, but I also had irl shit screw me out of buying all that I could have. It sucks, but nothing I can do about it now. I'm trying to keep myself from buying domestically-produced gucci guns, while at the same time not overpaying for imports. I'm also trying to not waste money on gear either, but I want to pick up a Perst-3 while I still can.>mfw spending $1500 on ammo last month
>>48425113If I didn't already have thousands of rounds of ammo for each caliber, I wouldn't spend the kind of money required to get ammo today. I'd just wait it out. Despite all the panicking about ammo import bans, one way or another, prices are going to have to come down eventually. The only thing keeping them high is people panicking and spending $1500 on a paltry amount of ammo for the money. This happened when Obama got elected, after Sandy Hook, when it looked like Hillary was going to win, and (in Florida) after the Parkland shooting. These things end, one way or another. Will prices be as low as they were before the current panic? Maybe, maybe not, but they'll most certainly be lower than they are now. Right now for people who didn't prepare for the dark winter while everything was cheap and available, I would just focus on a different hobby until the fall or so and then take a look back at the firearms/ammo market to see where it is. Or hell, even just get into surplus bolt actions or something.
>>48425160I agree about the ammo. I'm not even shooting my guns right now, sadly. The good thing is that if you ever wanted something with an obscure chambering, now is the time to buy it. Nobody wants a PS90 right now when the ammo is $2.50 per round.
I want a folding stock, a 90° gas block, a bayonet lug, a cleaning rod, and threaded for suppressor. What are my options?
>>48425235A side folding SGL, or a side folding SLR.
>>48425235Honestly just wait for the KR-103 this late in the game.
>>48422506>fox likes to play dress up>she's a show stopperthis guy is such a faggot and typical redditor
>>48425214The shop I work at hasn't gotten any 5.7 ammo since last March. At least with 9mm we're getting it in on a weekly or so basis. It's just not near enough to keep up with demand. We have to put most of the piddly amount we get aside to reserve for customers buying a 9mm pistol from us so they'll actually have ammo for it. People usually don't want to buy a gun they can't get ammo for.However, we've been able to get 7.62x54R, 6.5 Carcano, 7.5 Swiss, 7.5 Jap, and other milsurp-type calibers.
>>48423434>I seriously doubt it came from the factory that wayYou'd be wrong
>>48422506>the barrel bronzes after 3-6 mags or 1 mag dumpDo these retards not know that it is the result of chemical changes in the air surrounding the barrel, and that the "bronzing" wipes right off during cleaning? It's happened on my older PAP too as well as my Arsenals and a Polish underfolder. It's literally a nothing burger and doesn't usually come back after the first range trip. Talking about guns like they're a fucking woman is fucking cringe, too.
Fox "chads" BTFO>>48425214PS90s have gone way up in price though.>>48425284Strangely my LGS was fat on 5.7 deep into the pandemic. I was too casual about it and didnt buy it all. I grabbed like two boxes every time I went in even though there was no limit. Now its all gone and I rarely shoot my PS90.
>>48425319>PS90s have gone way up in price though.Really? I barely ever saw them on Fuddbroker before the panic. Now there's plenty of them on there.
>>48423059Yes, I have one and have used it on multiple AKs. It reduces muzzle jump better than a slant brake, but nothing special. Definitely not as effective at reducing jump as a true AK74/AK100 muzzle brake like. My SGLs with the Arsenal AK100-type muzzle brakes have less recoil and muzzle jump than the JCOMP v2 on my Vepr FMs and SAM7R, and the SGLs are much, much lighter. The only thing I suspect does better than the AK74 type muzzle brake is the Jetcomp, but I haven't tried one yet.
>>48425332Yeah, the base black model with the dumb top rail is averaging like $1900-2000 on gunbroker now. I agree that there are more out there, but it seems like the price of every gun has gone up 10-20% this year.I paid $1500 for mine a year ago, an ODG Gen 2 with a black ring sight.
>>48423434I've had a WASR come from the factory that way. And at my shop I work at we've had WASRs come in that way as recent as 6 months ago. The WASR is not a good reference for 1.0 receivers. Despite the WASR dicksucking cope on here, they have such horribly inconsistent QC that it writes the entire line off as garbage.
>>48423059One more bump on this question.
>>48424429i ordered some triggers, a rat stock and receiver extension and spring almost 5 months ago now from that fucker. still backordered.
>>48425353I want a P-chan, but I guess I'll just hold off for now. That gun is the epitome of something you buy just to say you have one. I guess the next thing I'll waste my money on in a Perst-3, even though I don't have night vision right now. I'm afraid the government might clamp down on them soon now that the normalfags are catching on that they're better than civilian LAMs you can buy in the United States. I also want to buy a Dead Air Wolverine whenever Silencer Shop gets more of them.
>>48425334Oh damn thanks a bunch. For the price point, JCOMP seems pretty good, but I'll consider these other ones as well. I believe I need a 14-1 LH thread, so I'll see if those are offered in that.
>>48425383kek I bought an Aimpoint Micro low mount for an AK from LaRue a few years ago. That was enough for me. I use American Defense for my Poorfag Arms ACSS optics now.
>>48425310>>48425354I'm only giving them the benefit of the doubt in this case because there was a lot of other bubba hackjob shit done to the rifle. Like I'm pretty sure the Romanians sent out canted sight posts, not ones that looked like they were dipped in red fingernail polish for MAXIMUM TACTICAL ADVANTAGE.
>>48425397DA wolverine is absolutely amazing. I cant remember where I found mine, but it wound up being cheaper even after my dealers $120 NFA transfer fee than going through silencershop and a powered dealer. Perst-3 is the Zenit/russian version of a PEQ-15 right? What do those go for used? I swear I used to see them used on AKfiles for like $400 unless I'm thinking of something else.Honestly the PS90 is a fucking awesome little gun. 50 rounds of viable fighting ammunition on tap, barely any recoil, and a gun that is barely longer than a folded krink despite having a 10" barrel. It's sad it's cucked by the NFA because it's an incredibly clever and well designed little gun.
>>48425485Perst-4 is the $400 model, it lacks an illuminator but has a full power aiming laser in vis and IR. Perst-3 is the PEQ-equivalent, vis laser, IR laser, IR illuminator. There is also the Perst-2 for 2 grand that includes a white light so you have everything in one unit.
>>48425542Seems like buying the perst-4 and an $80 IR flashlight to mount separately is the option for the budget minded.
So for the m70, if I want to put on a flashlight, I should get a barrel attached rail and it gets slotted in around where the front sling point is? Anyone have any good pictures of theirs? I'd love to see how a few setups look.
>>48425485There's a Silencer Shop platinum dealer less than five minutes from my job, so that's where I buy all my silencers. I also have a gift certificate for SS, so whatever. I would totally buy a PS90 for $1500, but I'm not spending $1900+ on one if what you say about the current prices is true.>>48425542It's easier to get the Perst-3 than the 4 right now. Does the 3 really have more IR output than something like a Surefire Vampire? They claim the IR illuminator is 500mW, but that seems unrealistic.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2st0fjgQckbrandon you rat fuck hurry up
>>48425563It rocks, probably the best IR budget setup. Even with the most gucci IR flashlights like modlite it's pretty affordable and those are powerful enough to give full power laser illumination a run for its money and blow the shitty civilian PEQs out of the water.
>>48425590Try one of these if you want to mount a white light on an AK as close to the muzzle as possible without buying a full retard rail:http://cdmgear.com/riflelightmounts.html
>>48425623>as close to the muzzle as possible To make it even more front heavy?
>>48425636So you won't cast a huge shadow from your muzzle and front sight block, silly.
>>48425647Yeah I don't think that really matters.
>>48425623Do these work well? I've never bought a rifle light and am unsure if they are generally a uniform diameter to be able to utilize the hole that the light mount you provided has.
I feel this might be a good place to ask. Where and how can I buy a PKM or a PKP?I've checked auction sites like RI for months, gunbroker etc etc and I can't find any of them. I imagine registered pre-1986 ones are slightly rare but I'm just surprised that I can't even find hints of them anywhere.
>>48425623I switched to one of these on my fox the last time they got them in stock. Surefire G2X is unironically a pretty damn good weapon light comparable to my far more expensive scout lights. I liked it so much I got a second one for one of my lightless ARs.
brand new fime vepr 74 on gunjoker right now, is it worth $3100? a;lskdjfa;lskdjf i'm about to send it
>>48425705Oh cool shit. I kinda wish my front sling point was a little farther back then, I'm nervous that the sling will fuck with the light. I'll get the light mount though, looks good.
>>48425698Your best bet is to buy a kit and have it built. IIRC there were like 100 semi auto PKMs released and built like ten years ago. I've seen one pop up for sale, ever. PKM kits trickle in, Apex had Yugo ones just a month or two ago and I've seen two or three pop up on AKfiles.Thats it dog. If you're looking for a transferable one then I'd give up.
>>48425698Parts kit build is probably the easiest route. You'd have to reweld the receiver and probably turn your own barrel blank.
>>48425743Fuck. I was hoping to avoid a kit. I'd prefer a transferable one but I guess a semi auto one might be what I have to settle with.
>>48425743>>48425751Apparently there is more than a dozen registered but the last time they went up for sale was for over $200,000. Which is a bit rich for my blood. I was hoping they would be similar to M60 pricing but I guess that was just a pipe dream. fuck, it would probably be easier and cheaper to get the licensing to make post samples than to afford one at that price.
>>48422511Don't buy the mini-jack, buy the Lynx instead.
>>48425800When was the last time a lynx was for sale?I think they switched to mini jacks.
>>48425820My buddy bought his off Atlantic in September of last year. They could very well have switched to the mini jack.
>>48425820>>48425840What’s the difference between them? Just the name?
>>48425800What's the difference?
>>48425858Well that’s easily changeable, why wait for the lynx which may never be back in stock? Just buy the jack and shop for furniture next
>>48425849The lynx also has a picatinny rear sight block.
one of them had a nuzzle nut spot welded to a non-threaded barrel too. i don't remember if it was the lynx or mini-jack
>>48425868Personally I'd rather just build one myself and make it an SBR with the beryl rail rear trunnion.
>>48425663Yeah all the major brands like Surefire, Modlite, Streamlight, etc. should have a uniform diameter.
>>48426018Sweet. I'll start looking for deals for those brands then. Those type of deals where they're discontinuing a product.
>>48425755Those semi-auto beltfed conversions almost always suck. You should become an SOT if you are really serious about owning something like that, since it's going to cost an arm and a leg anyway.>>48425739>is it worth $3100?Gee, I don't know if a gun that shoots meme ammo and retailed for $900 on the high end four years ago is worth over $3k now.
>>48426049Sign up for Arms Unlimited's email advertisements. They usually run deals on Surefire lights, which are pretty much the gold standard.
>too poor and stupid to convert saiga sportertapco furniture isn't so bad, r-right bros?
>>48426105Will do; thank you anon!
>>48426115Keep saving up
>>48426115Just let a professional do it. Yeah, it's "easy," but do you really want to go choppy-choppy on a gun you most likely paid $1k+ to acquire? It was different back when they were $300 ten years ago.
>>48426271I got it for free and still don't want to try doing it myself, I'm so dumb I'd immediately fuck something up
>>48426115Just sell it to someone else who will invest the time and money. Should get enough for it to afford just about any current import short the SAM7s.
>>48426340>implying the boomer who buys it won't put on tapco.
>>48426338I can relate to this
>>48426340It has sentimental value, it's a gift from my based grandpa
>>48426456In that case, definitely leave it in sporter config or just send it off to have the bullet guide and magwell done.Based grandpa, congrats anon.
>>48426506thanks anon, I think I will just save up enough to send it to get converted crazy how expensive it is though, the one I've been looking at converts them into "authentic" ak-103s but it costs a grand on its own, and if I want a side folder it costs 1500
Is it worth getting a b10 handguard and b33 dustcover to put on my romy g? I really want a optic on my ak but i dont have a side rail
do midwest industries or rs regulate make modern front rail systems for the sam7sf? does anyone? The only option I can find is some cheap looking bulgarian tri rail that looks almost exactly like the standard furniture.
>>48426737>>48426501 hereYes the Zenitco is worth it but it's not cheap. If all you want is the means to mount an optic on your AK a Master Mount is the sweet spot between affordable, easy, and reliable.
>>48426737get it now from akstuff, everything's back in stock and you won't regret it
>>48426765>do midwest industries or rs regulate make modern front rail systems for the sam7sf?Yes, but you'll probably have to backorder.

VSKA update.Shot about 50 rounds through it today. Just testing it. >no extractor issues>no misfeeds/failure to feedThe Croat mag did well, no issues. All I did was clean out the bolt and bolt carrier. Not sure if the bolt was just sitting in the bolt carrier offset. No issues though.
>>48427177Please sell it.
>>48427177This is going to make import retards seethe, nothing beats American quality
>>48427220>This is going to make import retards seethe, nothing beats American qualityHA good one
>>48427220>Oh nono vska bros we got too cocky
>>48427308Looks fine to me
>>48427322Here's your AK bro
>>48427333Give the guy a break with the prices nowadays. Sure, it's my fault I didn't get enough beforehand, but it's too late now. I started shooting BBs just to do anything shooting related.
>>48427333Like I said just a test about 15 rounds through each mag. The plumbers took longer than expected to install new water heater so only had time for an hour at the range today. Plan to go back Friday. Up to about 375 rounds through it.
>>48427388How much ammo do you have?
>>48427348Supporting Century Arms mfg is completely ridiculous when you can easily get a zoomerpap for $50-$100 more. The only people buying VSKAs and RAS-47s are the people without patience or brains, and the only reason they defend that garbage is to try and justify their questionable purchase.Hell, even PSA would be 1000% better than a Century shitter, and that's coming from an /akg/ imports-only elitist.
>>48427403I was only thinking about the ammo usage. You're right about everything else.
>>48427401On hand right now, about 200. My lgs has plenty of it though. Everyone where I live shoots 5.55/.223
>>48424451The population is getting dumber and dumber every day. They are every where.
>>48427418I just want you to shoot like 1500 rounds through it already and get it over with.
>>48427319Haha 1.5mm receivers absolutely blown out
>>48425160>Or hell, even just get into surplus bolt actions or something.Terrible fucking idea, all that does is invite more retards. Look at the beginning of 2020 when all the AR poorfags who lacked the foresight to keep a case of 223 on hand and decided to buy an AK cause 7.62x39 was still relatively cheap at the time. Then 6 months later they all bought ZPAPs, Rileys, and VSKAs and drove the prices up. Not to mention I seriously doubt any of the usual manufactures are even producing those rounds right now
>>48427403PSA has more listed issues.https://thinlineweapons.com/wiki/index.php/USA_Made_IssuesHey I know the history and background. I am just keeping /akg/ up to date on how a VSKA performs.
>>48427511Yeah because there are so many different shitty PSA models.
>>48427424Will be a third of the way there soon.
Went to my FFL today:>two zoomers picking up ZPAPs>a boomer picking up a 7.62x39 AR>"milled chad" picking up his SAM7SF as first AKAlso overheard them talking to the boomer how they got a KILLER deal on some corrosive surplus. Only $0.54/rd...Tells you everything you need to know about the AK market and ammo costs these days.
>>48427511You're not doing anybody a service with your 50 round updates. Its like doing a boot review after every 100 steps, plus everyone already knows they're shit you aren't going to change anything. So just fuck off till you can put an actual decent number of rounds through it
>>48427543They need to go fuck off.
>>48426782I was going to get a master mount but i heard anons saying that they will fuck up the internals if the rifle and the master mount got hit on the fall
>>48427511Thank you anyways for putting your facial integrity at risk for us.
>>48427543Did he really call himself a "milled chad?"
>>48427543You forgot about the chud that was there who posted about people he saw at his ffl on 4chan
>>48427543>>"milled chad" picking up his SAM7SF as first AKi can guarantee you he post on r/ak47
>>48427634No, he just stated that it was his first AK and was really interested in talking about them. Seems like everyone's first AK is either a SAM or ZPAP these days, also >>48427928 is true.>>48427651Confirmed *eddit s o y boy.
>>48428140>Seems like everyone's first AK is either a SAM or ZPAP these daysWell, at least they know better than to buy PSAshit. I bought a SAM7 and ZPAP too, but I’ve owned AKs for years.
Got rid of my wasr10 underfolder today. I was gonna try to snag a fox when they dropped again but this was too good to pass up
>>48427543gonna be honest brosI think the furniture on these looks like shit
>>48428212True, I had to give them credit for that.
>>48424431Change from IT into IT sales.
>>48424531Texans need to start doing the same with Californians.
>>48428641AZ here. Agreed
>>48425542I purchased a Perst-4 and Klesch-2 for my SAM5 so I'll have dual vis/IR white light and vis/IR laser for less than $1000. Half the price of a Perst-2 and it connects to one tail to control all 4 modes.
>Fox delivered at my FFL this morning>still no call from themSurely they're just busy, right? Is it bad form to show up there without a phone call first?
>>48428826Lol, they already crashed again
>>48428840depends how busy they are, my first ffl transfer i went to a bigger store and desu they acted like they were doing me a favor by doing their job. Now I usually get my transfers at smaller shops with people who give a shit. They always call me within an hour of delivery
>>48428826is this a good deal?
>>48428918Doesn't matter, they'll be gone within 30 minutes
>>48428918I bought one when they were $1200 and I really like it, get one if you don't have an RPK. May be your only chance.
>>48427177>50 rounds>thinks that’s good enough to justify buying American made dogshit Your post is pure cope
>>48428972i want to get a fox and mini jack first :(
>>48428993Waiting on a new shipment of anything is a losing game in these times
>>48429011idk what to do. fox or this
>>48428993I think you'll be okay because kit build RPKs pop up all the time. Russian red and plum WBP Fox should be in stock again next week, and Jack pistols are coming to AoA on 3/15. I think AoA is also getting some romy RPK kits soon if you wanted to go the builder route.
>>48429036Too late, only thing is to wait for the fox now
>>48427552You can also ignore me.
>>48428826>>48428918>>48428929i got one last shipment, it looks and shoots great. the batch i bought from sold out in about 8 minutes. it comes with a us palm mag, not a romy surp mag
Range day this week. Really enjoying my ALG.
I'm tempted to stop waiting on my stamp and buy KUSA's triangle brace
>>48428918Why even better you can get a Molot Vepr rpk style rifle in 5.45 or 7.62x39 for the low price of about $6k
>>48429504looked at one of those in person at SMGW over the weekend. neat gun. also didnt realize how fucking heavy an M91 is until the girl behind the counter almost dropped it on me.
>>48429430I thought Form 1s were getting approved in about a month. I guess covid might have slowed things down.
>>48429430If you have a KUSA or 9mm AK buy the KUSA brace. If you have any other pistol AK i'd suggest the SB tactical triangle brace
is there a drill kit for idiots for installing a brace on a ak pistol? i have a habit of fucking shit up and making it look ugly
>>48430006Lmao just do it right
>>48429173How does the ALG feel compared to a G2 trigger that comes in most AKs now?>>48430006If you don't want to pay someone to do it nicely and you're doing it yourself, you might want something like this, shop around for what's in stock I think a few companies make something like thishttps://www.sb-tactical.com/product/ba-ak1913-brace-adapter/
>>48430223forgot to say - After installing the rail on the back of your pistol just buy any of the braces that attach to picatinny rails. More than one company makes them and the triangle folding braces look especially nice on AKs. Fuck the AR buffer tube shit it's just wrong on an AK
>>48428212my first was ZPAP but now i’m itching for an AKM or something in 5.45.
>>48430402Some more WBP Foxes will be for sale in little more than a week.
>>48424431Stop buying guns and ammo. Buy crypto next crash or before biden bucks.
>>48430223The ALG has extremely short travel/reset, and a very light pull. It's so light that you might not like it if you're used to every other AK trigger. There's also some intermittent reports of them peening carrier tails.The G2 and the Fime are my favorite triggers, although not as crisp or short as the ALG. I also don't really care for the profile of the ALG from an aesthetic standpoint, but that doesn't really matter.

>>48431091their slot brake is actually pretty damn good too
>>48431035I'm sure you just have absolutely exquisite tastes. Post guns
>>48428826I didn't even get the email, it was for an M13 pistol that I also missed despite opening Atlantic within 5 mins of getting the email.
>>48428307Probably because it is. Gotta get some sick surp.

>>48429504>only 6,000 dollarydoos for RPK 74Am I the only one starting to get sick of Atlantic?
>>48431343That's the only thing they overpriced right now even with how insane the market value of things are now. They refused to increase their Fox prices from the last shipments and they don't have as many bullshit fees as Classic
>>48422045When I got mine it shipped as a barreled receiver and my FFL was being an ass about just putting the stock on and making it a rifle.
>>48431394Apologies, I forgot my name

Are lights and optics necessary on a SHTF rifles or are they reserved for AR larping?
>>48431110Dumb nigger G2 binds on bolt carriers
milled x39 underfolderwhere get
>>48431469I got mine, bitch
7.62x39 has remained cheap during the ammo shortage averaging 38 cents per round vs. 83 to 1 dollar per round for 5.56x45.Any idea why this is the case?
>>48431665If your G2 is binding on your bolt carrier you have a shit gun or it's put together wrong, stupid. Stop riding your bolt carrier forward
>>48431714That 38 cents per round 7.62x39 is hollow close range training ammo. That 83 cents to 1 dollar per round 5.56 is FMJ Tula or M193 or M855
>>48431664Yes, the actual gun you use matters very little so long as it's at least semi auto. All the real advancements in the past couple decades have been in optics. For self defense a light is pretty much mandatory and optics improve your ability to hit things farther, faster, and more accurately. Yeah you can ding steel at 400 with your irons all day but there is no question that a red dot or scope is a big improvement, especially against moving, mostly concealed, and camouflaged targets.
>>48431720Cope, Tapco went out of business for a reason, and it wasn’t horrid SKS accessories
>>48422014Is it good?
>>48431664Sling matters more than either of those
>>48431714smaller market size compared to AR's
>>48431759>CopeIronic considering you couldn't refute my post lmao. Your gun is shit
unbelievable to me, but i just sold a zpap for $1600. krink, rpk or rpk kit, what next? got my stamped/milled/5.45 meme rifles. i can't honestly think of something i could want that could fill a spot. i considered a dead air wolverine but then that's nfa shit and i'm then "listed" which i would prefer not to be. but then if I ended up getting a sam7k i would like to form 1 it with the ak74su handgaurd. dunno bros, i didn't expect to have this much cash from a memepap.
>>48431784>muh debate of high level ideasEven Century dropped the G2 for their own 56% trigger
>>48431795How did you sell it? Probably will be worth more than $1600 in a few months
>>48431795You're already listed, just get the Wolverine if you're at all interested in shooting suppressed. I have one at my dealer range right now and it's a ton of fun.
>>48431829fuddbroker. i put maybe 200 rounds through it this year after snagging it. straight sights, nice rifle, good tiger striping furniture. just wanted the money and i have pretty much everything i need out of my sam7sf and fox. i considered the lynx pistol or maybe that beryl 556 shit but then i'd have another caliber to deal with. shit is burning a hole in my pocket.
>>48431868yeah fair enough point bro we're all listed somewhere. bit torn between the wolverine and that. i did also get someone to offer a BNIB 5.45 vepr to me ... but that's 3.2k and the life of 5.45x39 seems to be fairly limited and for that price tag, i think i'd have to sell something else.
>>48431896I love my Vepr FM-AK74 but it's not worth $3.2k, especially with 5.56 AKs going through a resurgence.You could buy three nice suppressors with tax stamps for that much and completely up your shooting game in one move. Do it.
>>48431665>retard zoomer who got into AKs after 2016 confuses the G2 trigger with the G2 hammerlmfaoG2 hammer geometry was shit (but fixable). G2 trigger was actually pretty good.
>>48431929i see dead air wolverines listed for like, what, $729 at the cheapest but it's backordered? if I get one on backorder i'd just have to wait but could still fill out the form 4? i've never done an nfa form before so I'm a bit clueless and surely there is more reading that's better than your time wasted spoonfeeding me. the more i think about it I would really like an RPK build or a sam7k. idk guys, any more thoughts?
I have 5 AKs, but I'm considering ordering one of the ZPAPs just for the fuck of it cause they look and feel cool. I already have two SGL21s, a SAM7, and two Vepr FMs. I really have no excuse to be buying another AK. Should I do it anyway?
>>48431995how about something not chambered in trash? That would freshen up your collection
>>48431873Then you made the right choice selling it. Go for a pistol and faux krink it or RPK follow your heart anon. You gotta replace that AK though. Probably best to find an import
>>48431973You can set up an NFA trust through an online company for ~$50. You'll get the paperwork within an couple hours, print, sign, witness, and notarize. If you use silencer shop, it costs a bit more but pretty much everything is done for you on the submission. Just buy your suppressors and stamp, submit info and prints, e-sign the paperwork, attach your trust, and wait 130-365+ days.If something is backordered, you unfortunately won't be able to submit the form 4 until a serial is assigned.
>>484320535.45 is a meme niche round
Are RH-10s worth buying? Theres one for sale at a local shop for about 1k
>>48432054did I fix it
>>48432077It's a not-a-WASR WASR-tier rifle for a grand. You're definitely paying the idiot tax on that one.
>>48432117But it is a WASR. Different gas block and sights, but everything else is WASR and from Romania
>>48432077Try and score the fox next week for just a bit extra. True romy import, but it'll be worth it to not have to look at the comboblock.
>>48432054that bake is almost mint condition anon, very pretty. i debated selling it for about 2 months - wasn't an easy choice - but I looked at it and never really loved it. I love my fox like a baby and my sam7sf too with my tantal build like my retarded third child. pic rel is the fox with a polish fat grip on it, if you could find one it really does match a bit better. nontheless mirin that and the 556 beryl. i considered that as an option on my list as well. >>48432064i found one in stock for $750. maybe i pull the trigger on it sooner rather than later. is the wait time really that long now?
>>48431610Nalioth is the biggest fucking faggot
Anyone use extended charging handles and if so do you like it?
Basically confirmed by Atlantic earlier today that FB Radom has 5.56 Beryl rifles coming in. The 22lr imports are also confirmed dead.
>>48432152The sooner you buy it the sooner it will come off of backorder and be ready to submit your form 4. Can also use some of that time to get your paperwork sorted.
>>48432152>that bakethanks m8 I bought it at a gun show back in 2009 for $15, I didn't even have an AK back then I just knew I'd want one someday. I should have bought more but I didn't have money I was a teenager. Fox bro, I got one on the way and I'm very excited. I got lucky and snagged one last week. Can't wait. That bake looks to be in great condition too. Hope my Fox looks that gorgeous. Got a link for the Polish fat grips? I've been about to order one but nowhere does it say thick or fat, just Polish. I don't want a standard sized Polish grip. I want a fat one are they all fat?
>>48432262So Zastava will have competition for their upcoming 5.56 rifle? Good that will reduce both prices and give us more choices
>>48432152>>48432317For example, is this one from Apex "Fat"?https://www.apexgunparts.com/review/product/list/id/1888/
>>48432287Very true. Might go through with this soon. Thank you for the info.>>48432317This bake is pretty good, with a nice rack # carved into one side of it. I have another one as well with some cyrillic stabbed into it too. Unfortunately I snagged mine both IRL at a show and on the files, so I can't be any help. Just try for a polish one in orange and you can see what you get. I just really dislike the darker tones of the romanian and in my pic you can see I took it off. "Polish fatty" is the terminology for them, just make sure you don't order a romanian. It's about 25% bigger than the romanian and 922r compliant american plastic ones. it feels really good desu. could always try the files if you are on there.
>>48432340Competition is always good, will definitely have to pick a Beryl up if they're imported again.Also now that I'm re-reading same thing with WBP perhaps. Maybe more.
>>48432380Yes, that's the orange fat one similar (but they're all unique) that I have. I also have some nice polish mags and a WBP smoke mag that looks really nice on it too. Polish parkerized steel mags really make it look good. I'll drop a few pics tomorrow but that link looks g2g.
>>48432401This is the flip side of that same bake you liked, I didn't know "120" was a rack number thank you. I'll order that Apex Polish grip and I won't even be mad if it's not fat, it's only $25 and I love collecting all the different colors of those things. Just got a Russian plum one but I don't have a Polish yet. Yeah please post more pics whenever
>>48432262Where did they confirm this? Source?
>>48422014are these g2g?https://www.robertrtg.com/store/pc/AK47-30RD-STEEL-MAGAZINE-MILITARY-ISSUE-164p1632.htm
>>48432618yeah. No seriously, yeah. The romanian "good" condition mags on What a Country are also great. Not any better but will probably be in better condition for the same price. I ordered 3 and they were pristine new old stock
