I really don't need that encouragement thank you very much. If I didn't have that Red Boyds furniture on the DAKM I just bought from Atlantic I'd definately have a 3 rd WBP. Like you I'm going to just enjoy my Classic and CG1. But for those in the market it's definitely one not to pass up. What I might do is buy the Red furniture and swap it out on my CG1. That's definitely more doable and I don't have to buy another safe.

Another reason I'll pass on the red WBP is that I have scratched the Red Russian AK thing, so I have no need.
This was my first rifle from Atlantic and my first of my three VEPRs.
It also the rifle that really turned me down the path of being an AK addict.


That being said, the red WBP is a looker.

Yep the Red makes it, nice VEPR. That Red Atlantic has is very nice and makes anything you put it on stand out. That's what makes that Red WBP an above average deal.

My DAKM with it:

Nice pics guys, I have 2 veprs from atlantic with the burgundy and sunburst stocks, and my saiga also the sunburst which I think looks the best imho. I did buy the bodys Russian red set when on sale with plans to put it on a slr107.......now that looks more likely to be going on another cg1 when back in stock. Atlantic has a nice niche here with Arsenal dropping the ball. Maybe Atlantic throws some of their loyal clients a discount code for all this free focus group data?

Damn...you just HAD to mention the WBP with the red furniture.

/hand inches toward wallet

I would love to see a WBP with the Sunburst as well. The RAK rifles were just too pricey for me to bite on one. Same for the post-sanction VEPRs. I would love to have another one but that markup, d'oh.

Looks nice but Red Russian don't belong on a Polish Rifle. Go with the Polish Furniture. That Boyds red ain't all that anyway. Got it on my RAK and looks good but not as nice as some Russian Surplus laminate or some Ironwood Designs.

Okay, this has been bugging me for a while, how the hell do you guys shoot so well? You guys def shoot ”over” the spec of the rifle. Is that because uours are builds? I read in facts somewhere that the spec of the stamped AK allows an expert shooter 15cm groupings on 100m with 10 rounds. And this is something I’ve heard consistantly repeated to me aswell. And lord knows I don’t shoot close to as good as the groupings a lot of you guys claim on this forum. Am I a bad shot, is factory AK’s less accurate or is a lot of this ”fishermen stories”(those without photos)????

Ammo, the shooter and the rifle can all play a factor.

A good barrel on a good built rifle of damn near any design should be able to shoot 3MOA

I’ve never had the 2-3 inch groupings talked about on this board with an AK. Only ever had that when I’ve put a rifle in a vise grip basically. (Not that I’ve EVER measured a grouping in my life. )

That’s why zero fucks were given and I now use a 3-4 MOA red dot.

Why not just go all out and get an 8 MOA dot and never shoot at anything smaller than an elephant?

Nice video on the CG1 by mishaco recently, he should be on Atlantic's payroll for consulting fees, just looking forward to the much anticipated range report. I have only gotten to put about 300 rounds through my CG1 and very pleased thus far, not much but take it for what its worth. My only "complaint" with this build is that the dust cover rattles freely (as also commented by Misha, wondering if this is common with parts kit builds?)....I have 9 AK variants including Veprs, Saiga, Arsenal sam7, CG1, Draco, M92 Pap, Wasr, etc for reference and this is the only one that does that, more of an annoyance than anything but also the only parts build of the lot. That being said, the remaining fit and finish of the rifle are otherwise superbly done by Atlantic and puts the finish on the arsenal and wasr to shame.

As for the purists who don't like the Russian red or sunburst stock set on the Polska....I get it. Just like saying Kate Upton is less attractive cause her tits are too big. To each their own. C'mon! Also, Atlantic did sell out of these in about 72 hrs so there you go and they did confirm the Russian red set on this model is built on a Morrissey receiver for those interested.

Also, have gotten consistent 2-3 MOA groups with most of these rifles from bench, not expecting sub MOA like from my Tikka TacA1 obviously but for the model, round, and battle rifle, 2-3 MOA is certainly achievable and more than adequate imho.

Folks , The Russian Red stock set option was offered because of the number of request we had from clients. It may not appeal to you but it does to others . Keep in mind it is a option and we do offer plenty of the WBP AK47 rifles with the Polish laminate. We do appreciate everybody input and polite constructive criticism is welcome.

My WBP Classic, very impressed with fit and finish.
I replaced the Tapco FCG and slant muzzle brake for an ALG and Meridian Defense BD2-AK.
I also swapped in a laminate pistol grip.

I got mine yesterday, does yours have the highlighted Polish crest on the rear sight block? Mine came highlighted like on the new Beryl style rifles and I was a little surprised.

No polish crest on mine, wish it did. I purchased in early December. It did come with a fcg retaining plate instead of the shepards hook which was nice. Looking to get my wbp some company now maybe another polish, or Romy or yugo m92.

There's no crest on the Classic or CG1. You might want to re look the Polish Atlantic has right now http://www.atlanticfirearms.com/comp....html?Itemid=0 the m92's will always be there but the Circle 11's won't.

Well consider yourself lucky then just pulled both out of the safe to re check and neither of mine have the crest.

Maybe it’s a new feature since the Beryl rifles have the same RSB? Maybe someone at Atlantic just wasn’t paying attention? Don’t know. I do have to emailed them about the safety not being cut properly so I’ll inquire. My guess is it’s just an undocumented change that happens to be a bonus (though I would have preferred it wasn’t highlighted).

Well maybe so. I do like the crest as a nice touch though. It'll be on my Beryl style anyway when I get it so at least one out of the three will have it. My CG1 has "WBP POLSKA" stamped on the front trunion.

I have a WBP Classic wood rifle from Atlantic and the only thing I did not like was the over-sanded stock. They took so much material from the butt stock that it has a sharp ridge up top instead of a rounded edge. Honestly the roughed up original stock would have been better than the ultra-sanded version. It reminds me of what the Russians did to the German K98 stocks that they re-profiled with a sanding belt.
