Default So my relentless research for my third AK has lead me to..... another WASR!

I have been searching high and low, on GunBroker, the Marketplace here, you name it for my third AK. I wanted something of good quality but something I could get a good deal on as I'm going to turn this into a "modern AK" with M4 stock and Magpul furniture. Just wanted something that was going to be a reliable shooter. I looked at Riley defense, maadis, maks, polish build kits, pretty much anything I could reasonably get for 700 or under.

Now I already have a WASR 10/63 and an n-pap DF.

But as fate would have it, I'm looking on GunBroker yesterday and here is this, right in my backyard, at a gun store I'm very familiar with. A WASR 10 with a price I thought was too good to pass up.

https://www.gunbroker.com/item/746456508

Called up the store and 15 minutes later was there checking it out. Everything was good, sights appear straight. Tried a whole slew of different mags in it, everything locked up perfectly. Only downside is that the muzzle as a tac welded nut on it, but that's an easy fix. Examined the inside and it literally appears unfired, maybe test-fired but that is it.

Walked this out the door for $450. Feel like that was a pretty good deal a brand new AK with a CHF chrome-lined barrel. It's the first AK that I bought that I could inspect before I purchased it which was nice.

Thanks fellas. Right?! 450?! I just couldn't pass that up and it's a wasr 10 so it is a little bit different that what I already have. Ha.

This pretty much sums my look after I got in my truck with my new gun.

Gun feels super smooth so far. The action and the fit and finish on this wasr 10, which was built in 2015 according to the trunnion, I have to say is much better than my wasr 10/63 is. That gun has a canted rear sight block so my front sight is drifted far to the left. Butt like Rob ski says, if you can zero it, then it's good enough and it shoots just fine.

Now I just got to get this new wasr all blacked out. I've got a Vltor extension, mft stock, and Magpul Moe handguard that was just waiting for the host rifle.

I'm still on the fence with the century Rak trigger. My n-pap has one too. It's not a bad trigger, and I like how it doesn't mess up the carrier tail, but I've got the ALG in my 10/63, which is definitely a superior trigger.
