>>58336700This photo has death grips aesthetics
Should I get 5.56 or x39 for my first AK? Keep hearing that x39 prices are just gonna keep going up, would be nice to be able to shoot for cheap
if you call ahead before you get there they might save you some
>>58336700On thumbnail it looks like rifle has copecage...
>>58337464Just pick the coolest looking one that you can afford.Thats how I choose all my purchases firearms or otherwise
>>58336861Is that at PSA?
>>58337539Its a JPG
Man i'm tired AS SHIT.
>>58337464There may be a teeny lil chance that 7.62x39 drastically drops in price somewhere in the near future
>>58337632No, Peggy isn't in that picture
>>583374647.62x39 for your first AK. There’s just something satisfying about shooting a bare bones AK with wood furniture and iron sights. Everything is expensive to shoot now so it’s not like you’re going to be saving by shooting 5.56. If you end up loving AKs you’ll end up with a 5.56 AK down the road anyway.
>>58337976If you dont tell me that's photoshopped right now it's going to occupy my nightmares
>>58337464Enough people in the US own x39 rifles that the market will hopefilly fill gaps. Also Russia isn't the only country that produces and uses the round. Serbian ammo is good too.
Recommend me the best 5.56 AK that's not a Yugo M90 and isn't some $2000 rifle
>>58337771what stock is that, swissanon?
>>58338859WBP Jack I guess.
>>58338859Just call it a Serb m90 in your head and tell yourself it's not the same, and buy an m90
>>583374645.56 is your best choice in current year. Don't buy a gun on the hopium that ammo will get cheaper, get something you can actually take out and shoot.>>58338859M90 is the best for the price, but if it really rustles your jimmies that hard wait for a beryl
Has anyone here drop shipped from 4shooters and successfully received package? or ordered from Ivan and gotten no issues? Want to swap out my top handguard for another one that nobody local to US has.
>>58336700Tulius: What in Oblivion is that?
>>58338550Listen tourist... You haven't even seen the best ones...
Fresh info on the new AK-12M1.The upper handguard is fixed into the gastube with a crosspin. Redesigned optic rail crosspin, similar to AR-15 receiver crosspin.
>>58340431New rearsight. Main aperture 1.8mm, second aperture is 4mm
>>58340442KC claimed that they simlified the trigger group, because troop lost their trigger in ukraine during maintain.
>>58338864SAG M4 Stock Adapter
>Get M90 as my first AK, along with a variety of different magazines to try out >Zastava Polymer Mag: Works fine>WBP mags: hard to insert but they work fine when they're in>Converted Bulgarian 5.45 mags: work fine>Steel Zastava Mag: can't get it to lock in properly for the life of me, mag falls out every 5 shots or soAren't the steel mags supposed to be the ones that work the best? Is this an issue with the mag, my gun, or my skill?
>>58340772That’s really odd. They lock in and function great in mine. Are they too tight to lock in or are they so loose that they are falling out after locking in?
>>58340826I guess the former? When I insert it it seems tight enough and doesn't wobble or anything, but it doesn't seem to lock in properly at all, I don't hear a click and the mag release looks like this while it's in. I've tried to force it in in a few different ways but it doesn't help.
>>58340932might require a little filing on your mags, but preferably on your mag wellput sharpie on you mags and insert to see where you need to fileI'd guess mag well is the best bet because these come in single stack and get converted to double stack mag wells state side
>>58338859Pioneer forged, literally the same nitrided barrel and receiver as WBP
>>58341003LOL LMAO EVEN
>>58340457NTA2 round burst was also removed
>>58340932Place butt of rifle on floor, and press down on the front of the mag until the mag release comes fully forward. Likely just a tolerance stacking issue. You'll probably have to do it quite a few times until the parts are mated. Don't file anything.
>>58336700Found a decnet deal on one of these bastards. 300 and includes a B-13 mount. Should I fellas? Im planning on a alpha ak eventually but in the mean time this will sit on my .223 Saiga.
>>58340932>>58340772>>58340973 that's weird as fuck. zastava steel mags are the best 5.56 mags out there. your rifle might be fucked man, you should turn it into the ATF for destruction (for zero compensation, like what a janny earns here)
>>58338059Maybe after the war. Theres going to be a shitload of surplus. Same kinda thing happened 2014-2020. Syria was in full swing and every factory possible was shitting out ass lods of 7.62 and AKs for contracts payed by the Saudis.
>>58341054Doesn't seem to be working for meI guess I'll try to file down the mag at some point because I'm too cowardly to try the magwell, and hope that it was just this one mag being weird.
>>58336700I'll see your AL-3 and raise you the AB-3
>>58341076Sure, if you mean $300 then it's fine. Not like it's costing you an arm and a leg plus you could always flip it If you're not happy
>>58341158I don't think you're trying hard enough, but whatever. Check the top of the mag catch for burrs or unevenness. That might be the issue as well. > captcha Pktwo
>>58341035Clearly ignorant, leave this board now and return to leddit
>>58341239keep having fun with your cast trunnions plebbitor>S0Y8G
>>58340772>>58340932There was a youtuber who mentioned he had to file his m90 magwell to fit the metal mags. If you look at an M85 magwell, which is unmolested for import, there is no "hump" of material near the mag release/trigger guard. This is why polymer mags are really hard to insert because the back of the mag gets stuck on this left over material.I am guessing this was done at Zastava USA to prevent their CNC from crashing into the mag release assembly when they were machining the single stack magwell into a double stack. I would just file it flush.
After trying out a variety of configurations on my mini beryl including the beryl folding stock, tantal stock and beryl collapsible stock, the cheap polymer fixed stock that comes with the full size Beryls and polymer handguards are the most comfy to use. Go figure.
>>58341243Do you not know that pioneer makes forged trunnions now or do you just like to regurgitate dated information?
>>58341003You fucking stupid bitch! Pioneer is literally I.O. owners brother lmfaoooo at your stupid life
>>58341239You should leave here and go to theakfiles you pot calling the kettle black dumb ass motherfucker. They fooled you with the same shit chinks do ie: set up sweatshop in italy, tags can now say "made in italy" you fucking stupid gullible sorry chump.
>>58341810Nobody gives a fuck you fucking faggot its worse than century arms and their "forged" claims they still suck they still build subpar shit badly and putting a "forged" trunnion in a ras47 c39 since you suck milled dick or vska doesn't make them any good. Shut up forever.
>>58341851>>58341866Stay salty and keep paying $2000 for shitty parts kit rifles only to post on Instagram, ya fags.
>>58341873>I don't have any experience with said rifle and the internet says they're bad!
>>58341751Yep. This is the redpill all the Berylfags don't want to swallow. Same goes for the full size.You can even buy pic related if you don't like the cheek rise problem and it's still cheaper than all the alternatives.
I think I'm going to take the 5.56 AK pill but I'm not sure what route to go. With Beryls being like $1500 and maybe needing some gunsmithing to accept muzzle devices I think I'm better off just shilling out the extra cash for an old SLR-106
>>58342195>maybe needing some gunsmithing to accept muzzle devicesThat is only if you choose the one without any threads, you don't have to choose that one lol.
>>58342215I only see one model on Atlantic's website and it appears to have the pressed on muzzle device
>>58342269It isn't pressed on, it's threaded 14x1 left hand. https://atlanticfirearms.com/fb-radom-beryl-m1-223s-rifle-556-fabryka-broni-luczinkOn AoA you can buy it with 3 different threading options.https://armsofamerica.com/fb-radom-beryl-rifle-5-56-223-eta-may-2023/
>>58342286Damn, must be nice being able to read. Nah but for real, that does tip things in the Beryl's favor. It is a special snowflake or can I put normal stocks on it? It looks like the answer is no, it has the polish trunion for the optic rail thing that I probably won't use
>>58342316It is kind of a special snowflake, but if what you want to put on it is wood or polymer, you can just trim the stock to fit it.AoA actually sells wood stocks with it already trimmed.If you want to put on a metal stock that doesn't fit you are kinda out of luck.
>>58342330The new midwest AK-Alpha stuff looks pretty kino I cannot lie. If I get a 5.56 AK it'll be to tacticool it out, I already have a polytech spiker for my classic AK
>>58342338There is stocks made for the Beryl by several companies including FB Radom, they have a collapsible stock in production and a old side folder stock.
>>58342338The rear extends further out than a normal rear trunnion. You just have to shave some material off of what ever stock you want to put on it
>>58342347Noted>>58342361I'm not a high enough level bubba to be willing to demolish a relatively expensive stock like that, lol. I might keep an eye out for a 106 for a bit and failing that nab the Beryl. IDK. Not really in a rush on this necessarily, I've got like 3 other guns that either need an optic or a suppressor and adding a 5.56 AK to the safe means a whole new set of magazines to start stacking
>>58342316>>58342338if you are going to get a beryl, get the whole beryl furniture lineup. the beryl collapsible stock goes from being c tier to s tier if you get a riser kit
>>58342407>adding a 5.56 AK to the safe means a whole new set of magazines to start stackingSo like a $300 investment in mags? Tell me how I know you make less than $20/hour
>>58342460I'm certain it's effective but damn if you painted the muzzle device orange I'd easily accept that being some chinese POS airshitter toy. It's so sparse and utilitarian it looks cheap. Not doggin on ya rifle, I'm just enough of a man to admit I like a bit of tactical barbie and that shit looks wack as fuck to me
>>58338859Beryl mah nigga
>>58342479I have an income of roughly 100k a year, I just have other irons on the fire and can only budget about $500/mo toward guns while meeting all my other obligations/goals. Namely trying to build a house on some land in the country rather than try to endure the upcoming collapse in suburbia
>>58341751Looks pretty slickSame holds true with the mp5 imo
>>58341751What is the point of an 9” barrel 5.56 rifle if it can’t fold or collapse
>>58342573To get subpar ballistics out of a velocity-dependent cartridge while the muzzle blast BTFOs you every shot... but it's light-weight and cool? I honestly don't get it either, 300blk is about the only intermediate cartridge I can think of that retains most of its effectiveness while being that short
>>58342573Fucking around shooting steel plates >>58342595Ok
>>58342479Get a load of this guy who thinks 10 mags is an appropriate amount
>>58342595>300blk is about the only intermediate cartridge I can think of that retains most of its effectiveness while being that short7.62x39
>>58342953Who the hell shoots 7.62x39 out of an AK of all things?
>>58342595Good luck with your midnight raids on al qaeda
>>58342481hey, take it up with the polish military, lmao
>>58342923Post your mags
>>58342953>Implying 7.62x39 isn't an anemic cartridge by modern standards out of the standard 16.1 barrel
>>58343078Well there's what's in my safe at least. could prolly go dig another 40 out of my range bag and basement. Still nowhere near where I'd like to be
>>58343034I don't even know what this is trying to say desu. Are you calling me a larper for wanting my weapon to perform decently as weapon? If you want a sub 11.5 barrel AK get a Vityaz or brew up some 300blk abomination somehow
>>58343244There is almost no difference in ballistics between 200 black out and 7.62x39.
>>58343255300blk is far more versatile and has far more ammo options, handloader or not. I appreciate 7.62x39 for what it is and what it contributed to the development of small arms but it's outdated and should not be anyone's first pick for an effective cartridge in a modern conflict>Okay, get shot by oneI don't want to get shot with a water gun bro, I just know there are better modern options, especially here in the States.
>>58343242>tfw only 20ish magsIt's hard to stomach buying more mags when I have other pressing problems to buy solutions for but I will. Our AG's Stasi makes it more difficult too. He regularly shakes down small LGSes to make sure they're staying compliant.
>>58343294>too pussy to get sprayed with water Yea bro, totally sounds like you’re qualified to have any opinion anything weapon related.
>>58343342>Taking the obviously exaggerated line intended for comedic effect and sprinting with it because you've been BTFOreddit------------------>
Are beryls anywhere in stocks?
>>58343535Yes, multiple places you dumb fuck
>>58343356>proceeds to post Reddit tier “obviously you didn’t get it” post as he sobs dreading the fearsome splash of lukewarm water
hey guise, i'm the anon who got an M90 for 700 bucks from last thread.i forgot to make a post last thread about this. Idk what the guy was shooting but there is some of this blue oxidization going on in the gas block, end of the piston, and on the muzzle. I'm not really pissed or anything cause i got it for 700 dollars. Of my few AKs i've never had to deal with corrosion cause i don't mess with corrosive shite. Should i just soak it in vinegar or something? Or should i even do anything in the first place? I don't want it to end up getting worse. k thx bye
>>58343819That’s not even from corrosive ammo bro. That’s copper oxidation…
>>58343819should've bought the wasrunironically just hit it with some gun blue kit or contact zastava and say yo wtf. I got a recoil spring in a wasr once that had a poor finish on it and rusted really easily. Emailed them and they sent me a new romanian made recoil spring in the mail free no questions asked besides "whats your address" hopefully zastava will help you out like that
>>58343872>Smooth brain take
>>58343819Wash it off with water, once it looks clean then use some gun cleaner.
>>58343871yeah something like that is what came up when i googled it but i wanted /akg/'s thoughts over google'sif it's not gonna get any worse then i'm not gonna really do anything about it, maybe just clean it a lil bit
>>58336700Question:I've taken my AKM (Romanian PM md. 90, early 90s build, assembled by a very reputable AK building company) to the range a few times recently, and it's been having some jamming issues.some of the jams are failure to eject, spent cases getting stuck on the bolt carrier by the chamber, and some of the jams are double feeds (i.e. one live round in the chamber and another one stuck behind it being held by the bolt).I've tried multiple different solutions, using different mags (including new-made Serbian polymer mags, bakelites, and surplus steel), cleaning, disassembly, etc. but nothing seems to work. the ammo I've been using has been barnaul and golden tiger.I was wondering if this is an ammo problem or if I should replace the springs in the gun?
>>58344137what about coffee? Yeah I don't think it's bad for you
>>58343819It's fine anon just use whatever solvent you usually do.Your barrel will have it too so run solvent covered patches through until it's clean. Also, don't shoot steel cased 5.56. Nothing specific to this picture, I just don't like steel 5.56. It sucks, is dirty, and smells like a minute of cat piss and body odor.
>>58344137Honestly it sounds kinda under gassed.
>>58344234**mixture, not minute.
>>58344248would I have to get an adjustable gas piston or something like that then?
>>58344286Nah it's not gassed enough probably, idk I'd take it to a AK gunsmith but likely what they will do is drill out the gas port a little wider.
>>58344137Like the other anon said it might be undergassed. No an adjustable piston won't help that. Clean the gas port out. It's possible there's a ton of carbon buildup impeding gas.Short AKs have a problem short stroking which is why krinks and M85/M92s have boosters. They increase the backpressure which increases gas going back into the system so the bolt reciprocates harder
>>58344234at this point brass 5.56 is the budget option lol but i will still shoot through the rest of this cheap steel cased 5.56 i have. It's not corrosive or anything that i know of but it's cheap shit nonetheless. Thanks for the answer, i figured i would ultimately clean for a bit regardless.
>>58344137i prefer a medium roast, cream and sugar.
Hey anons. Kachin K-10 builder anon here. It’s coming along. This is just a mockup. Added rails to the bottom so that I can mount a handstopThen I gotta find a way to minick their interesting green colour through paint and clearcoatWill update again soon. Thank u for reading my blog
>>58344137Yes coffee is good for you.
>>58340431Why M1? I think it's at least M2.
https://gunmagwarehouse.com/bulgarian-ak-47-7-62x39mm-30-round-reinforced-steel-lug-polymer-magazine.htmlfucking love these mags. They're on sale right now
anon who got the M90 for 700 bucks herei also forgot that i got the Jmac rear trunnion picatinny adapter piece from the guy for only 30 bucks when i believe they go for 60 or 70. So i got an M90, 5 mags total, and the picrail piece for 730 dollars lolol feels good man
>>58344518Calm down m90 zoomer. Actual ak anons are gonna dab on you with $500 norincos and $650 rpks they bought before this all went to shit
>>58344551cope haha i'm gonna buy myself one of those Midwest Industries Alpha stocks on this picrail piece. My M90 i got for 700 dollars is gonna be better than any Beryl or Norinco piece of shite. You'll see. You'll all see...
>>58344732Gr8 b8 m8
What clp do you reatardause?
>>58337771oh shit. is that an sag?
>>58336700Are these guys legit?https://www.stockysstocks.com/ak-47-military-walnut-replacement-stocks.html
>>58336700>builder has almost finished akm and ak74>just need to get the finishes donei'm so excited bros. i've been sitting on these kits for 5 years and they're finally going to be done.
>>58344137Try polishing the chamber. And changing out the extractor.
>>58344893Nice. Post pics when you get em.
Is M67 a good enough round to justify using corrosive primers? I have a surplus case but am moving, thinking I might sell it and use the money to buy other ammo
>>58344893>Kit buildsWhat is it with spending dumb money to build a rifle when otherwise you can just buy one off the shelf? Is it pride?Ignorance? Reddut?
>>58345266>Being scared of corrosive ammo
>>58345270i will have spent $1250 per rifle and it will be of objectively better quality, fit, and finish than whatever you have.
>>58345270>Why so people want special/custom things?
>>58345270When did you get into AKs?
>>58345297I do not like cleaning, I haven’t cleaned my AK since the day I got it and it’s never failed me
>>58345347>Made by some asshole with a harbor freight press and some hammers>It's more speshul than your AK!!!Why aren't you building them? >>583453572002 you bitch
>>58345407>>Made by some asshole with a harbor freight press and some hammersnice projection>>It's more speshul than your AK!!!it is>Why aren't you building them? are you stupid?
>>58345407Sure you did.
>>58345270You will never own a ‘69 Izzy kit build
>>58345487Literally no difference between this and a WASR other than leddit points, nice attempt to flex though
>>58345534The paint is nicer, it’s IntMilCo russian paint. This is built straight and solid. It’s gassed properly. And the laminate furniture is nice. And it has dimples. WASR’s on the other hand have gray flaky parkerization that likes to rust. It’s canted to shit, overgassed to hell, and it comes with US made balsawood furniture that cracks when you look at it. And no dimples.
>>58345482>just always buy off the shelf shit dude.
>>58345571That's all nice snowflake, doesn't change the fact that both will sling 7.62 relentlessly, making everything that you described pointless. How much did that super rare Izzy or whatever the fuck build cost?
>>58345575Do you load your own 7.62x39 ammo, or buy it off the shelf?
>>58345610>Yeah why buy a Ferrari when you can buy a Shitbox 9000. They will both get you from point a to b
>>58345630>Comparing AKs to FerrarisYeah, you're dUMb
>>58345640Go buy a VSKA then nigger. It will “sling 7.62 relentlessly” just like you want it.
>>58345661Century US made stuff is shit we all know this anon
>>58345683I thought things like that don’t matter to you, all AK’s are the same, aren’t they??
Now you can own a piece of history for 6g's. The Alpha AK used by Larry Vickers himself is for sale in GB>https://www.gunbroker.com/item/988933515
>>58345690I never said all AKs are the same, I compared the pretty princess Izzy build to a WASR
>>58345712feel bad for larry, but better that his collection is slowly released to the wild instead of being destroyed when he's dead.
>>58345747Yeah same here, plus his disease is destroying him.
>>58345724Look dude. I own a WASR as well. I like collecting AK’s. It’s my hobby. My Izzy kit build is a neat addition to my collection. It’s cool, and has historical value. It’s not pride or ignorance. It’s just called being an AK enthusiast.
>>58345810Same here anon, it's all good.
>>58345810It’s a sweet rifle and it’s cool to have a Russian AK. I’m also into AKs and have a bunch but my only Russian gun is a biathlon rifle.
>>58343078Not him but ok.
Looking for some nice magazines for my Wasr. Any advice?
>>58344775no i'm actually serious. Everyone is praising the Alpha stuff from Midwest and so i'm gonna put their stock on my M90. I'll do anything for a good and sturdy folding stock that has adjustable LoP and a cheek riser
considering getting a beryl. what is the best option to get for the threads? 1/2-28 or 14x1lH? kinda look like there might be a detent on the collar for the 1/2-18
>>58346220If I get one it will be with the original 14x1LH and beryl muzzle brake pinned. But I’m going for a clone correct beryl. If you’re looking to actually run and gun with it go with a 1/2-28 so you can use the many AR muzzle brakes that are out there.
>>58346239If you're going for clone correct get the unthreaded one and have the imported Beryl muzzle device pressed onto it.
>>58346239Retarded question but wouldn't you have no barrel threading and buy a muzzle brake pin?
>>58346281Ah I see.
>>58341878>>58341895Lmfao cope pioneer broke and stupid ho, i never touched an i.o. ak either but after rob skis video he literally ended their career along with the ras47s run. Fucking stupid dipshit. Wasr wins again.
>>58342481It is just configured wack, would look nicer more balanced with no cheek riser a low profile mounted dot and s light and or lam at the front.
>>58344361is that a 3d print? idk anything about kachin but looks cool man
>>58345945And what else?
>>58346354And a cleaning rod
>>58346389what you mean what else
>>58344839never heard of them, but they look legit
>>58343819Copper fouling. Hoppe’s number 9 baybeee
>>58345571>The paint is nicer, it’s IntMilCo russian paint. This is built straight and solid. It’s gassed properly. And the laminate furniture is nice. And it has dimples.Sounds like you could have just bought a WBP for cheaper
>>58346910I have a WBP Jack as well.
>>58344381Can confirm these are some of the best mags I have, probably the very best, feel like absolute units and ultra reliable
>>58346933Oh you've got a nice collection going on then based on your other posts too. I'm>>58346942 and I have 3 other AKs besides those 2
>>58345920get some bakelites, get some slab side, waffles, and european steels. Or if you don't care for surplus get the bulgarian metal reinforced polymer mags like the other anon said
>>58346953I had the wood on my Jack too at first, but swapped it out for some Poly furniture. Maybe one day I’ll put the wood back on.
>>58347027Handguards say WBP on them which is cool
>>58347027>>58347050I like both the wood and poly that came with the WBPs and I thought I would have the plum poly I was surprised
>>58347109>>58347027>>58347050hate the plum poly*
>>58346896is that one of the Atlantic builds? looks good whatever it is, I love the hungis
>>58347109The plum looks good. But the thing I like about the WBP poly stock is it looks like an AKM profile stock. It doesn’t have that 74 style profile with the lightening cut.
>>58347144you mean in buttstock? Like a 74 style buttstock? My plum WBP came with the 74 style
>>58347135Yep, I got one of their DIY barreled receivers and bought a stock set separately, so thankfully the receiver wasn’t sandpapered down with fake battle worn bullshit like their complete rifles. picrel
>>58347157Yep the ones you have are American made buttstocks for 922r compliance. The one on my rifle is made by WBPhttps://armsofamerica.com/wbp-akm-ak74-black-polymer-buttstock-made-in-poland/
>>58347192oh that makes sense
>>58347180How hard was it to put the whole thing together?
God damn I love my WASR so much.
>>58347261What is that optic, my man?
>>58347246all he had to do was put the furniture on
>>58347246Not hard at all. All you needed to do was fit and install the stock set, as well as a fire control group. And your rifle is up and running.
>>58347280PK-A Venezuela, red dot from Belarus
>>58347304Neat. Know a place where they're in stock?
>>58347383Most people get them on the secondary market but https://redcolonel.com/ is a reliable place. I'd avoid Scamazon due to counterfeits
>>58347418>>58347304different anon. How is the cheek weld with them? I know Russian style is more of a "chin weld" but most red dots I've tried on AKs don't allow for much contact without high riser
>>58347490Its not bad actually. It sits very low to the bore.I thought I had a picture of it from behind the sight but I guess I'll take another one in a bit. Anyway yeah with a wood AKM stock the cheek weld is good.
>>58338859Beryl is the best. Buy once cry once.
>>58347180>so thankfully the receiver wasn’t sandpapered downi thought the same thing when I bought picrel from them, they barely did anything to the reciever and its supposed to be bfpu so im happy
>>58347603Yeah that receiver looks nice if its one of the bfpu ones. Almost a perfect match to the original parts.
>>58347603I don’t know if they let the intern go to town with the Hungarian ones. I’ve seen a few of them posted on various places and they look like hot garbage. Yikes.
>>58347657yea you arent wrong about that lookin fucked up, hopefully mine doesnt look like that
>>58347731You bought one?
>>58345487I've a '66 Romy build, and that's the closest I'll get.
>>58344137Why yu do this? Why u share wahman I can no have?
>>58344137I’d contact the builder and see if they’ll remedy the problem before going any other route
>>58345920Mokas Raifus has a good sale on Romanian, Polish, & Russian mags right now
>>58347947Yea I want a hungi for the collection and if it really looks that shitty I will live with it until I get it refinished, my maadi got fucked by the previous owner too and its whatever to me
>>58344518Fellow M90'r here.
>>58348366Holy fuck I hate "Battlefield pickup" finishes. How much were you upcharged for some monkey to clumsily sand around every rivet? On a related note, what do you guys use to finish your parts kits? I dont wanna use rustoleum enamel on my AMD-65
>>58348620That's not a bfpu the guy who had it must have brillo padded the piss out of it but I got it for $900 so I was happy since I don't ever see maadis locally and I'm playing catch-up
>>58346851wtf anon i literally just sent my gf "baybeee" right before seeing this post. 3 E's and everything. /akg/ hivemind baybeeee
>>58348490ugly. Mine will look better.
>>58346355Yeah. The Kachin is a myanmar built version of the type 81, which I own as I’m a leaf. It’s 3D printed for now, yeah
>>58344809Yezzur. MK3 thingamabob.
What's the western collector's path to the modified AK-12
>>58337530I hate this and I hate you
>>58345905How do you open the door without tipping over the stack of magazines?
>>58350821Wait for a parts kit for 2000 dollars and then send it to a builder for 1000 dollars.
>>58350821buy a galil ace and squint
Where do I buy nice wood furniture guys this is ridiculous.
>>58344234Why is it that steel cased 5.56 sucks ass but steel cased 7.62x39 is fine?
>>58351752steel cased 7.62x39 sucks too. ak owners are just used to it. go try ppu or american made brass and you will see the difference.
>>58352496But y tho? I noticed my russian red army standard stinks compared to shooting anything else.
>>58352525>Extraction Issues: In some firearms, steel case can be harder to extract — or it doesn’t extract at all. This is caused by a combination of factors. Steel is harder than brass, so it doesn’t have the elasticity that brass does.>When a cartridge is fired, the resulting pressure makes the case expand to the internal dimension of the chamber. The case must contract slightly to allow for easy extraction.>Steel does not contract as easily as brass, so if a chamber has any roughness or tool marks in it from the manufacturing process, the friction caused by the case not contracting enough — and the rough chamber — can cause poor extraction.>On the other hand, studies have shown that over 10,000 rounds of .223 failed to show a measurable difference between steel and brass on the wear and tear of the chamber and barrel.https://blog.cheaperthandirt.com/steel-case-ammo-good-bad/
What is this rail?
>>58345571Damn you overpaid that much for WBP? That’s.. sad.
>>58352648I’d like to rail her
>>58352544While this is true. I feel like this is an issue with the ar platform. My ak's and chink sks have had no issues with steel cased red army standard.
>>58353202It’s also just an issue with shitty AR15s, a good AR shouldn’t have issues with steel case ammo
>>58353720I should rename it to "AK and AK-adjacent", SVD being different and all.
>>58353232>Muh if she don't run steel she don't deserve brassProperly gassed weapons have issues with steel ammo because it's chronically anemic and shit-tier. SR-15s were known to not run wolf steel .223 very well (because they were tuned for proper-spec brass 5.56) and now that KAC is overboring the fuck out of their gas ports people are bitching about how they're overgassed. No shit, it's because retards like this have been bitching about how their broke bitch ass wolf steel case bullshit won't run in a properly gassed weapon so they had to fuck it up all for you to save a few pennies per trigger pull. Poorfags and retards ruining shit for people with two braincells to rub together once again. Fuck you.
>>58353202Our AKs are overgassed. There is good reason why you can run whatever you want in them.
>>58353729Too long didn't read, nigger.
>>58354118Which is why I love them. A gun that can essentially use what ever ammo you throw in them is a great thing if shtf ever does happen.
>>58353764Lol. I am not paying that much for a Russian milsurp mag. Croats ain't bad but I need to get some serbian bolt hold open mags.
>>58354306That comes with its own problems though.
>>58350995They are all packed away. Most valuable ones in the safe and the rest in that closet.
>>58354843>Most valuable onesSo everything but Romy surplus then?You're the anon who runs his vepr 12 with a svd or psl pouch, right? How many factory vepr 12 mags do you have? Are you using any other ones like SGM or Pufgun? Something a little higher capacity than your 5s in the pouch.
>>58354928Nah I'm not that guy. I only have a few 5 round mags and then some 8's and 10's. Honestly not sure how many. I might check later.
>>58353729Typical AR tranny response
>>58351748Buy WBP Polish laminate furniture from Arms of America and be happy with it or sand and refinish it the way you want it. Other than that you can buy surplus furniture on forums and faceberg groups but you have to be vouched for by somebody already in the Kool Kids Klub usually. What are you looking for in particular?
>>58348620alumnahyde from brownells, clean the part like autistically clean,degrease and clean again. Wear gloves, other option is engine enamel
>>58355734Engine enamel chads keep winning
Anyone here buy a KR104? Are they shipping with correct safety and shit now or are they still sending out garbage that niggers put together?
>>58356462kusa has pretty much fixed themselves apart from some ugly camo paintjobs desu. You will more than likely have a good american ak on your hands
>>58356643Nice rifle, I just like that they are made as close to 100series spec as you can get and I can get one and beat on harder than 104FR etc.
>>58339525AL-3 blow forward rifle. Notice the backward facing charging handle.
>>58354679True. I guess a kns piston is a good thing to have.
This thread needs more weird shit.
>>58357618>IOI made that mistake once. Whole kit was 150 and it was overpriced.
>>58357634Cute, looks like he just got out of the pool and is shy
>>58357640Baby AKs are adorable.
>>58357716Little brakleen will get that shit right off of there.>>58357746I saw the rear sight block. I turned my IO kit into this.
>>58357792kek you could fit another gun under that
>>58352648Since she is a ukie, it's probably an early kpyk.
>>58357792the m16a2 from the 60s had a better dot setup what the fuck.
>tfw AKB-15 never ever
>>58341751That looks fantasticNice man
>>58358291Dang that's a clean rifle anon. Buh Reels clean up nice
>>58347261Did you do the finish yourself in that furniture?
>>58355241How do you refinish it?
>>58359276There’s a million and one YouTube videos out there. But basically you sand the furniture then stain it your preferred color then seal it with varnish or you go the traditional route and pick out a lacquer finish you like. I’d go with lacquer myself. Again, there’s tons of info on forums and elsewhere & how-to vids to walk you through it
>>58359254yeah, the buttstock and upper handguard are Bosnian War bfpu pieces that badly needed refinishing. The lower handguard is an East German that I didn't know was EG so I had been using it to try different stains. I used a mix of Espresso Brown and Crimson before shelllacking. Pic rel is what the buttstock and ugh were before.
>>58359469Actually this anon >>58359514 is right, I meant shellac instead of lacquer, idk why I said lacquer. Pick out nice color shellac chips you like
>>58359469>million videosYeah yeah I know. I watched them, and every time they use different methods, styles, oils, stains and whatever the fuck. Some of them even use custom stains like what the fuck. I just wanna know the ONE way to do it. >>58359556I heard shellac melts on the handguards when the barrel gets too hot.
>tfw no AKM crate.https://youtu.be/MHKYX_qEtsI
>>58360497Uuuugh mouth watering. Thanks for sharing anon.
>>58343242>>58345905I'm him and goddamn anon that inspiring. You've made it. Besides the Bosnian what other unicorn mags have you got?
>>58345266>not washing the salts off with hot water after shooting and drinking itNGMI.
>>58353764Never paid more than $20 per mag for my bakelite hoard.
>>58337464More 556 options than ever. >Protip companies with good rep for making 7.62 rifles does not necesarily corelate to good, functioning 5.56 AKs
>>58342460What an abomination they look like to "get right". I just cant bring myself to get a fuckin $1600 base ass Beryl just to spemd another $600 unfucking it. Meanwhile M90s are breaching the sub-$1K mark and Pioneer Forged 556s continue to mog WBP Pollockian Fagolicious Jacks
>>58344893Hope you live in a free state with a functional Republican apparatus
>>58346896Luv Magyar AKs>>58347180>>58347657Def dodged a bullet on those. God I fucking HATE Faglantic>>58348620>I too view Revy as my spirit animalexcept Im probably the only American AK nerd in the world sampling Suco de Hapa on the regular

>>58362512>pioneer opinion discarded
>>58345640>AKs to FerrarisItalian AKs are smooth and overly complex. I want another.

Just can't deny you're paying a premium for a stamping on your trunnion.
>>58363307nta but magazine collecting is retarded and reddit peddling 'bakey bois' and 'plum lyfe' has been a disaster for the AK market.
>>58345270Only way to get certain AKs. Sometimes want to have something that's not a wasr or a pap smear.
>>58363376cool story bro
>>58363533Nice molots. Those will be $240 + tip sir
>>58352544>Extraction Issues: In some firearms, steel case can be harder to extract — or it doesn’t extract at all. This is caused by a combination of factors. Steel is harder than brass, so it doesn’t have the elasticity that brass does.The steel used in cartridges is so mild that there is no difference in good rifles. (yes the ar15 sucks ass YWNBAW)
>>58363664>random mentions trannies for no reasonStop projecting.
>>58352496>>58352544>>58353232M67 chads rise up
>>58363909Is that the brass serbian surp ammo? Neat
>>58336700are croatian mags alright? all the romanian ones dried up I've noticed. Also, what's a good rig to hold 10 ak mags? Saw a video on a recon guy, but he used a rig with 10 ar mags.
>>58359771It can happen with shellac and it can happen with whatever clear coat you seal it with too, it’s wood anyway so if it gets too hot it’ll start burning. You can always make and put in a heat shield or something if it worries you
>>58359771You just said it yourself, there’s a bunch of different methods, there’s no “one way”. Pick one. If you use laminate furniture then be sure whatever you choose is safe to use and won’t interfere with the glue layers after you sand it down good. That’s one reason why shellac is great plus iirc that’s what the Russians and other countries used to finish their stocks
>>58363909>>58363928This is what Zastava is advertising every week?
>>58364706Croat mags suck imo. And Romanian mags haven’t dried up. Hell, Mokas Raifus has them on sale $10 for fair condition to $15 for excellent condition. They have Polish mags around the same price range too
>>58345905>>58355082Now I know why I thought you were him.The mags stacking is oddly similar
>>58360497I would very much like to have my own crate of AKs.
>>58355890those are some nice runs on the receiver there
