I bought a 107 back in May. Nice rifle. But I chose the WBP in the poll. One is probably as good as the other. I just prefer the wood.

I'll pick my WBP all day over my 107-11, it's just plain better in every way.

Your totally reading my mind now!

Plus 1 on the WBP over the SLR107R-11 all day long.

I'm picking up my CG1 this week.

Can't wait.

You're gonna love it I got mine out of hock 2 weeks ago and it sets on the chair next to my kitchen table where my computer is. Playing with it now, as I have been since I got it, while I'm typing. Going to the range next week with my bud to sight it in, but it's just like our Classics, perfect and with that Childers for icing on the cake.

I picked WBP, because I love the one I have. Your post says WBP by lee armory. I can’t speak to their build, but Atlantic’s version is top top quality.

Yep, same boat. Saying WBP but saying WBP assembled by Atlantic. SLR-107R? I am getting rather disgusted with Arsenal. Why launch a new product and then not have enough inventory on hand to support the demand? Its stupid from a business stand point. Plus i am tired of being told more 107Rs are coming "in 1 to 2 weeks." Been hearing that shit since June. What, did Arsenal take lessons from IWI? lol

If Im not mistaken, Frankenbuilt commerical rifle with US receiver and commercial AK parts from Poland vs factory built Combloc more modern AK rifle has features of a Russian 100 series rifle (other than pin and stock angle) with a CHF barrel and price taken into consideration.... my choice arsenal.

I'd love another 556 AK.
SA M5 was my favorite, but i'd even trade something nice for a proper M85 with Yugo magazines.
I might even trade my only "test fired" Type 3 made from all NOS parts and Bulgarian barrel or my SA85M for another 223/556. Maybe.

Copper Custom has them for $950. Item is listed as WBP Polish Premium Synthetic. With The Lee, you get a Morrissey receiver, an American nitrided barrel, and black plastic furniture. for $9 more, The WBP Classic from Atlantic is built on the same receiver, but has Polish wood, and of course, the CHF FB barrel.

I voted for the WBP, but I would go with the Atlantic instead of the Lee Armory.

If the WBP has the stupid Lee rollmark, nope.

Keltec. ... not sure if joking. Joking?

I like the SLR and I have a soft spot for bullpups and the RDB is about as affordable as you can get. If I could get a tavor for that price i would already have it.

RDB just because it's so unique and I don't even like bullpups.

Let's be honest here, AK's are a dime a dozen.

If the WBP is from Atlantic Firearms then yes over the 107.

If it was the SLR-107FR I would pick that over everything else.

Judging from what I’ve read about the recent run of 107’s compared to these new WBP’s, I’d have to go with the WBP. However, both are tremendously overpriced anyway.

If it was WBP by Atlantic, I'd have gone for that. Why in the world would you choose a nitrided US barrel over CHF Radom?

Yeah I was going to get the new SLR-107-11P but was always out of stock, so I just got a Wasr 10, new 2017 model. I am happy with my Wasr 10. I cannot believe a company putting out a good price point AK but like you stated before, having the inventory to back it. They should have know it was going to sell.

Eye candy my Wasr 10 with new redone furniture in Red Mahogany stain with Satin Polymer finish.
