Second WASR

I own a NPAP but I honestly would never get another Yugo

I had the NPAP and now have the 2017 WASR. My pick would be for another WASR.

Is your Npap not reliable?

Option number #3, save you money for a different AK unless you plan on one WASR dressed in wood furniture and the other in black polymer

That's what I want to do. One WASR with black arsenal furniture and another with some nice wood that gives it the classic kalash look.

Look for a MAK90, they can be found for a decent price if you look, heavier barrel and thicker receiver. It would be something different.

Alternatively, wait for the SLR-107R to come back around and get one of those. That could be your modern poly AK, leaving your WASR free to dress in wood.

All depends on price of each one and if you like duplicates.

I don't have a standard NPAP, but my N-PAPA DF is a solid gun. I went with a DF for its third rivet on the rear trunnion. With that said, I would go for the WASR first, then a WBP CG1 from Atlantic, then start filling in any gaps with whatever you find attractive... That is what I did. My WASR just feels like a no frills workhorse.

I will say, I would at some point like to get a second WASR to throw some tacti-cool rail on it for an all-purpose SHTF battle gun.

NPAP have shown themselves to have receiver issues with cracking. The older OPAPs were indestructible, but the NPAP is a different animal. NPAP has a CHF barrel, but it is not chrome lined.

I'll always go WASR, hands down.

WASR for sure. I actually sold my Npap and bought another WASR. Chrome lined barrel and there's no question about the receiver

I would take a look at a Riley. I did what you are doing and made mine the poly version with MOE stock, fore grip. I have about 1500 rounds through it and I've been very happy.
Plus it's cheaper than a WASR by a few bucks to go to the add-ons.

If you want an underfolder, get the NPAP DF.

If not, just get the WASR.

I've seen a DF with 6-7K rounds and it's still chugging along and the barrel looks fine and much better than a domestically produced AK with a 4150 nitride treated barrel did with less rounds.

That's not a lot of rounds at all.

Dimples? I was just curious. My first ak years ago was a wasr....great rifles. Just prefer the look of dimples.

Dude he said "6-7 rounds." One shot one kill. How many bullets you plan on shooting at one time?!

I haven't had any problems with my npap df, although I had an older wasr that was a complete pos though. I'd rather get a draco and sbr or weld and pin it over a dimple-less wasr.
