Default Just wanted to thank the files

Mod if this isn't in the right place feel free to move. I just wanted to thank everyone on here for the great info that is provided on this forum. I recently had a relative ask me about the ras 47 and if it was a good buy as black Friday prices were tempting. Thanks to the info on here I pointed him to this forum. I don't post alot as I typically don't have much to say and I am not an expert on the ak. However, I find myself on here at least a few times a day reading the posts. Thanks guys for the great info.

This forum has been a wealth of information for me. Aks are so attractive because their are so many variants to learn about and collect . Also the value on most imports will just go up from here .

I joined right after I bought my first Bulgarian 74 kit and needed it built. The guys here were instrumental in all things AK47 and my purchases.

You can't help but learn here.
Things like dickpussy, snubbing, peeing in bed at mom's house, etc.

The gun stuff is a side benefit here. Look at all of life's lesson you can learn.

Almost brought home an I.O. before I started reading the Files. Sent a guy here just last month because he was about to lay down cash on a 'sweet deal' for a good, honest, 'Murrican-made RAS. Two dudes who are grateful.

I joined the 'Files six years ago as I was researching info and advice on building my personal variation of a Krink-like carbine based on an AMD65 parts Kit.

The advice and recommendations found here proved invaluable in my project.

This is a good place.

Do retail gun shop managers actually notice Reduced sales of IOs or RAS AKs because of this website and Youtube ("AKOU" etc) ?

If so, none of them would admit it to any customers. But many staff must have heard about these websites.

Yep, When I registered here I had 3 AKs. 2 of them are gone, I have about 20 more now and about 15-20 kits waiting to be built.

This place keeps my wallet empty for sure

This forum is why I have a Vepr FM and Polish CG1 and not an IO or RAS47. I joined and did some research before my first purchase and I think it paid off.

I’d been over at HK-91 forums, then ARFCOM for a while before finding a home here, much better forum than the other ones mentioned

Appreciate that op. I'm always available to help.
Just don't ask me about specifics. I'm more of a "big picture" guy.

I doubt it. When I go looking in Vegas I see the ras and c39 about $100-$200 more than the imports. My sar1 was $500 while the tRASh47 was $750.

Since when has that slowed anyone on this forum down?

Seriously lots of great information and people on this Forum. I have had several people go out of thier way to help me out here.
Just recently I posted for help finding a unicorns tooth of a part and a member posted he had one and sent it to me for free. It was a big deal for me to find that part. Not the first time someone has done something similar. Just one example. Thanks all fellow Filers.
