"The LORD of WAR"

"Of all the weapons in the vast soviet arsenal, nothing has been more profitable than Avtomat Kalashnikova model of 1947, more commonly known as the AK-47, or Kalashnikov. It's the worlds most popular assault rifle, a weapon all fighters love. An elegantly simple nine pound amalgamation of forged steel and plywood, it doesn't break, jam, or overheat. It will fire whether it's covered in mud or filled with sand. It's so easy even a child could use it, and they do. The Soviets put the gun on a coin. Mozambique put it on their flag. Since the end of the Cold War, the Kalashnikov has become the Russian people's greatest export. After the AK47, comes vodka, caviar, and suicidal novelists."

Comparison of the AK-47 and M16

 

Photo: Zastava Serbian M-70 AK's !!!
 
The two most common assault rifles in the world are the Russian AK-47 and the American M16. These Cold War rivals have faced each other in conflicts both large and small since the early 1960s. They are used by military, police, security forces, revolutionaries, terrorists, criminals and civilians alike and will most likely continue to be used for decades to come. As a result, they have been the subject of countless comparisons and endless debate.This article explores the history, philosophies and the issues behind these debates in a chronological, measure vs. countermeasure format.

Polytech AK-47 Legend Series Poly Technologies AK-47 762 x 39 Underfolder Poly Technologies SKS 7.62 x 39 Poly Technologies M14S

Poly Technologies AK-47 Legend

Legend AK-47/S

    As we know the Kalashnikov certainly qualified as one of the most significant firearm designs of this century. The robust construction, excellent handling characteristics and overall design integrity has yet to be surpassed.

    With an increasing civilian demand, Poly Technologies Inc. manufactured the Legend Series AK-47/S. This weapon was patterned off the original Kalashnikov, but in a semi-auto configuration. This has made the AK-47 in a semi-automatic version available to gun enthusiast, and firearm collectors worldwide. Simply stated, we ignored trendy designs and cost saving compromises, opting instead for quality based upon proven designs and manufacturing techniques. Utilizing the highest quality components available, the Legend Series offers unquestioned value. Still today, The same quality holds true to every part purchased off this site.

    The Polytech AK-47/S like the original features a genuine machined (Milled) receiver. An extraordinary piece of craftsmanship, the hammer forged machined receiver of the AK-47/S involves over 110 individual steps. Each receiver is fitted to an ordinance-grade barrel specially selected for uniformity and accuracy potential. Of course the bore and gas piston arehard chromed to resist corosion and extend service life. The trigger mechanism retains the original type "double hook" design for maximum safety and reliability, yet reduces trigger overtravel and offers a smoother engagement with considerably less "creep". All critical components are heat treated for superior strength. True to its heritage, the Legend Series AK-47/S is furnished with an original pattern knife bayonet. Manufactured in both a fixed wood stock, and an underfolder configuration. The Legend Series weapons came available in March of 1988.

Specifications of the Legend Series AK-47/S

Caliber:   7.62 X 39mm (Soviet)
Weight:   8.2 lbs. (Empty)
Barrel:   16 3/8 in. Chrome Lined Bore and Chamber. Cold Hammer forged.
Rifling:   Four lands and grooves. RH twist, one turn in 240mm/9.45 in.
Length:   Overall 34 3/8 inches
Reciever:   Milled Receiver (Hammer Forged Machined)

PolyTech AK-47 7.62 X 39 Underfolder

AKS 7.62 X 39mm

    Manufactured in China by Poly Technologies Inc., the AKS-762 is the semi-auto version of the Chinese AKM (Type-56) assault rifle. The Poly Tech ASK-762 features an ordinance-grade barrel carefully inspected to insure that it meets stringent military specifications. The bore and gas piston are hard chromed to resist corrosion and extend service life. Like the Legend, all critical components have been specially heat treated for superior strength. Other features include enlarged safety and magazine release levers which also offer considerably smoother operation. The trigger mechanism retains the original AK-47 type "double hook" design for maximum safety and reliability, yet reduces trigger overtravel and offers smoother engagement with less "creep".

    A detachable version of the spike bayonet is provided with the wood stock model. The side folding AKS-762is the semi-auto version of the PRC's new Type 56-2 assault rifle, so there is no provision for mounting a bayonet. The AKS-762 was manufactured in a fixed wood stock, underfolder, and sidefolder configurations.

Poly Technologies M14/S

PolyTech M14/S

    Two companies in the Peoples Republic of China produced the M14 rifles, Polytech Industries and Norinco. The Chinese semi-automatic M14 rifles have been exported to Canada and the United States for sale to private owners. Three companies imported Chinese M14 rifles into the United States prior to the September 1994 enactment of the Violent Crime Control Act. IDE and Keng's imported Polytech Industries M14S rifles. Century Arms International imported both Polytech Industries and Norinco M14 rifles. Polytech Industries M14S rifles in the U. S. are generally regarded as pre-94 ban. Some of the Norinco M14 rifles were sold prior to 09/13/94 and some were warehoused by the importer then sold after 09/13/94. If a Chinese made M14 rifle was not assembled with sufficient U. S. made parts prior to 09/13/94 (to allow installation of a flash suppressor per the March 1989 import ban) the rifle must comply with the 1994 ban on semi-automatic rifle features. It is best for the owner of a Chinese made M14 rifle to check with the U. S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives regarding a specific rifle serial number. Some of the Polytech Industries M14S rifles are marked on the receiver heel and some are not. In either case, the serial number is stamped on the receiver below the stock line. Norinco M14 rifles are marked on the scope mount side of the receiver. Norinco M14 type rifles are marked M14 Sporter and M305. Polytech Industries rifles have a better reputation for receiver surface machining and finish over the Norinco rifles. The Presidential Executive Order import ban of March 1989 affected the Chinese M14 rifles brought into the United States. Subsequent to the import ban, Chinese M14 type rifles entered the US market with a rubber recoil pad instead of the buttplate, the bayonet lug ground off, the flash suppressor castle nut welded on and the flash suppressor either removed or installed without the open slots. Some of the Chinese M14 rifles were rebuilt by the importer after the March 1989 import ban with U. S. made parts including the USGI flash suppressor. This was legal until the May 22,1994 Clinton Executive Order ban.

Specifications for the M14S 7.62 x 51

Caliber:   7.62 x 51mm
Weight:   11.5 lb. (Empty)
Barrel:   22 in. Chrome Lined.
Rifling:   Four lands and grooves. RH twist, 1:12 inches.    
Length:   Overall 46.5 in
Reciever:   Gas-operated, rotating bolt

PolyTech M14

Included in Factory Packing:        

Optional Accessories:

  • Box with foam insert
  • 3 20rd box magazine
  • 1 Owner's manual
  • 1 Sling

Accurizing Tips - A competent gunsmith can enhance the accuracy of any M14 type rifle. Some of the procedures he may perform include: checking the operating rod spring guide for parallel, padding the hand guard, gluing the spindle valve open, measuring the operating rod spring for proper length, unitizing and shimming the gas cylinder to the front band, tuning the trigger group, bedding the stock, backing off the flash suppressor set screw, reaming the flash suppressor, polishing the gas piston, hand fitting various parts, installing National Match front and rear sights, and lapping the bolt.

Note: To those who are trying to BUILD or Re-Build a Chinese MAK-90 who can't use No-Dak Spud Receivers - here's a guy who might help you: 

 

Welcome to Matt Yeamans' Guns Northwest!

A major goal of mine is to provide an affordable solution to the homebuilder who needs technical and manufacturing support. From custom machined parts all the way to fabrication of complete weapon systems, I can do it. Check the Projects page for AK-47 kit reweld, assembly and build details.

In addition, my plans include a line of weapons not available anywhere else at an affordable price. These will have a full warranty to cover any repair or defect.

Some AK Buyers are buying MILLED Bulgarian SLR-101 AK-47's like the one ABOVE that used to SELL for $1,000 or so - but are NOW selling for up to or over $2,000 in 2013 = which is STUPID because smart shoppers can almost buy two Good Stamped AK's (like an MAK-90, NHM-90, Maadi ARM, Hungarian SA-85M, or a SAR-1) for a LOT LESS than $2,000!!!

BUT BEWARE with MILLED AK's like the SLR-101 - if you want a FOLDING or T-6 Style Collapsible M-4 type stock - MILLED AK's use MUCH DIFFERENT Stocks than Stamped AKM's like the WASR-10, etc & therefore you have LIMITED CHOICES besides STRAIGHT STOCKS or finding a Gunsmith competent & willing enough to DRILL a MILLED AK to accept an underfolder Stock !!!
 

Also, AK47World.com STRONGLY ADVISES AGAINST buying the New Serbian/Yugo Zastava PAP AK's - (although the 7.62 x 39mm caliber M-92 PAP Pistols are NICE - but AVOID the M-85 Zastava PAP Pistols in .223 - as Yugo .223 mags are impossible to find!)

 

Some MAKE the 'BIG MISTAKE' of BUYING Yugo PAP m70 Rifles & if they're 'Single-Stack' Mag style - the 10 round Single-Stack mags COST $40 - $50 each or MORE - IF YOU CAN EVEN FIND any Single-Stack AK Mags !!!


/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////


And THIS Yugo PAP that the former importer E.A.A. (European American Armory) in Rockledge, Florida NOWS SAYS they No Longer have ANYTHING to DO WITH THEM ANYMORE !!!

 

 
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

 

 
Despite those who might BAD MOUTH AK47World's advice on AVOIDING Zastava PAP & Romanian WASR-10 Rifles. Read (below) what OTHERS say about WASR-10's & Zastava PAP AK's !
 

Under first impression, you can definitely tell it’s a Romanian AK (Romanian model AES-10 RPK). Its fit and finish was similar to a well-built wasr-10, as quality of wasr-10's vary from decent to what the fuck? The aes-10 under first impression was decent on the Romanian scale at least.

1st observations...

 


The wood, was NOT even finished...nothing, no stain it was poorly sanded, looks to be by hand with 150 grit paper.
The wood however was of a good quality, unlike wasr-10's this wood was blonde in color and much harder.
The gun had no sight cant what so ever, the front sight block was in perfect alignment with the rear block, this is a rarity with modern Romanian Frankenstein AK's.
The bbl is long i think 24 or 26 inches long, it is chrome lined the quality of the rifling is mind-blowing however, it is perfect, i noted absolutely ZERO internal bbl imperfections it was sharp and crisp.
The gun was jammed, and i mean fudged-packed with Romanian packing grease, it took hours of soaking and degreasing to remove it...what a mess!
 

REAL' Serbian Zastava AK's - like those imported in the 1980's by Mitchell Arms of Santa Ana, Calif - were not made from 'cut up parts' (like the Century M-70AB2 - produced from 2004 to 2009).

Zastava M70 PAP

Zm70pap50

  Or the current 'Bastardized' Yugo PAP AK's (above) with narrow trunnions that are cut into to allow Hi-Cap mags from their narrow single-stack mag imported configuration by $$$ hungry Century Arms - who sells AK's where 'REAL Military AK Arsenals' don't produce 100% of the finished AK rifles they sell (as opposed to AK's 100% produced in the factories of Norinco, Poly-Tech, Izhmash, F.E.G., Maadi, Arsenal of Bulgaria, Cugir & Zastava) !!

AK BLOGGER:
 
I have not seen any converted PAPs. The conversion is not as simple as it might seem.

The rear of the receiver is slant cut. While the PAP will accept standard M70 furniture, you have the cosmetic issues of the slant to deal with.

The rifle also has a narrow front trunnion that will accept single stacked mags only. Not only will you have to cut the receiver opening for the double stacked mags, you will have to machine the trunnion to accept the double stackers as well.

I have no intention of weakening a PAP Front trunnion by milling it to accept standard 'Double-Stack' AK Mags, and if someone else does it they'll weaken their PAP's trunnion drastically & severely shorten its life.
 

To ALL those who BUY Zastava PAP Rifles & IGNORED AK47World's ADVICE NOT to BUY these less-than-good 'Franken-Guns' !!!
 

"Apparently a LOT of people are having problems with these rifles feeding reliably, in part due to the use of a single stack bolt (the guns as they come in obviously are single stack) and probably even more than that just due to the plain good ol' Century Arms monkey gunsmithing. Personally, I would be very wary right now about buying one of these until Century gets real about modifying them properly for hi-capacity mag use..."
 
 

Whoever converted the Single-Stack Zastava PAP AK's to take Standard AK mags - didn't replace the Single-Stack bolt to a proper 'Double-Stack' (standard) AK-47 bolt. So, the feed lug on the single stack bolt is shorter than needed for the double feed mag, while a new AK 'Double-Stack' AK bolt usually solves the problem, Century PAP Double-Stack Conversions SKIMP on this much needed modification to properly feed ammo with standard 'Double-Stack' AK Mags !

Below is the account of another FFL whose LUCKY the ATF doesn't give annual 'Knowledge of Gun Laws' tests BEFORE they renew Federal Firearms Licenses !!!

"I recently bought an AK47 that was recommended on your site. It is an Egyptian Maadi ARM model. And I was told by the dealer I purchased it from, that it was exempt from 922(r) requirements because of the year of importation, as he says it doesn't it have to be 922r compliant since it was imported after 1990?"
 
Since the ATF doesn't give these 'Billy Bob' FFL dealers 'yearly knowledge tests' - some Sloppy FFL Dealers GIVE OUT 100% WRONG INFORMATION - like that imported AK's after Nov. 30, 1990 don't have to comply with 18 USC 44 Section 922(r) Compliance - when POST 1990 imported AK's must have 5 U.S. Parts if their thumbhole stocks are removed & a detached pistol grip is installed - despite the FACT the ATF may or may not enforce this regulation !

Please Note: While AK47World.com is NOT an FFL 'Gun Dealer' - we ONLY SELL AK Mags, Ammo, Parts & Accessories - as we WANT our customers to GET Good AK's, or else they won't be buying the High-Quality Mil-Spec Mags, Parts & Accessories from us - as AK47World REFUSES to SELL JUNK like Korean AK Mags & Drums or ANYTHING from Pro-Mag !!!
//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Some buyers remember when AK47World was known as 'Dan the A-K Man Ammo & Accessories' in the early 1990's in the Denver U.S. West Yellow Pages, WHEN these Chinese Sidefolder stocks were 1st SOLD for $79.95 & later at $99.95 BEFORE Bill Clinton EMBARGOED ALL Chinese 'Implements of War' on May 22, 1994 - which had NOTHING to do with the temporary Crime Bill that Clinton signed on Sept. 13, 1994



Still we have threads that CLAIM AK47World info is the PERSONAL BIAS of site's owner
- who to THAT 'Board Fairy' B.S. there's 'THIS REALITY' that if USN NAVY SEALS, the military of
 Finland (who stopped producing Valmet/SAKO AK's in 1998 & chose Norinco AK's, along with the Taliban
 who receive large supplies of Chinese AK's currently, CLEARLY SHOWS the STUPIDITY of 'Board Fairies' !

Otherwise when it comes to REALITY - Daniel King is the OWNER of AK47World & HATES THEIVES & sometimes gets overwhelmed
with orders & if you're NOT HAPPY with your order or delivery time - your $$$$ is PROMPTLY REFUNDED - as ANYONE who knows
Daniel King/AK47World.com & has had dealings with AK47World.com KNOWS what the POST BELOW reinforces:
5/26/2012 12:13:52 AM I've known this guy for about 7 years. He has a table 4, or 5 times a year at the West Palm Beach Florida gunshow.
 He's a nice guy, but all my purchases have been FTF. He lays alot of AK's on the table, but none are for sale as he's not a FFL. He does sell lots of 
parts & the guns are to make people look at his table. A year ago I needed an AK muzzle nut, & I didn't see one on his table, so I asked him if he had
any, & he pulled one out of his pocket. He's a little strange, but he's a nice guy. GARY N4KVE

Tex (who bought himself a Comboy hat & seems to think he's some kind of AK expert or another John Wayne type...) in the YouTube Video above - professes to know what are 'Good AK's' - but in REALITY, 'Tex' doesn't know much about AK's, because if he did - he wouldn't be telling you to buy a Century WASR-10 that came into the USA with a Single-Stack (narrow mag) AK - that Century's monkeys opened up to take Standard 'Double-Stack' AK mags - as the BEST AK-47 'Out There' - when a Chinese MAK-90 or NHM-90 AK's beats the CRAP out of any crooked-sight WASR-10 AK !  And REMEMBER THIS - 'Tex' won't buy back your WASR if it doesn't work either !!!

Comment #3. "DUDE, the wasr is the worst weapon ever made, it jams and the clips fall out. I'd rather pay more so I would not lose my sight when a wasr blows up in my face - they are highly unsafe." ww2guy100

Comment #4. DO NOT BUY A USED ROMANIAN AK-47 AT GUN SHOW! Century has a 1 year warranty from the day it ships from the factory & if it's defective, and I've seen more than a few, your fucked! Century WILL NOT fix it & you're stuck with a 'non-working rifle'. BearClawAK47

SA-93 one of the BEST 'Real Military Arsenal' AK's EVER imported into the USA (Milled-Receiver & Steyr Hammer-Forged Barrel) - a REAL Arsenal of Bulgaria (not from Arsenal Inc. of Las Vegas) SLR-96MB (Factory Muzzle Brake model) - that once sold for around $500 in 1996 !

 

 
//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

NOTICE: Apparently there were SO MANY PROBLEMS with CENTURY Arms 'Draco' Romanian AK Pistols - they're NO LONGER AVAILABLE ? While they USED to SELL for $349 TO $399 - BEFORE MANY Problems SURFACED & now if you want to 'GAMBLE' on whether you get a Draco Pistol that MIGHT WORK or MIGHT NOT - some DEALERS NOW WANT OVER $600 for remaining Draco AK Pistols - as Century Arms seems to have PULLED these 'Questionable' AK Pistols from the Market !!!

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

 
If AK Pistol Buyers want a RELIABLE 'Real Military AK Factory-Built' AK Pistol - here's a New Offering from Arsenal, Inc. of Las Vegas, that was actually MADE in Bulgaria - but some DEALERS are asking $1,000 or MORE for these .223 Caliber Bulgarian AK Pistols !!!

From: Joe Gun Buyer <JoeGunBuyer@IneedHelp.com>
To: "sales@ak47world.com" <sales@ak47world.com>

Sir,

    I'm writing to request assistance in purchasing an AK. I have the desire to purchase an AK but I do not have the knowledge on how to select the proper gun.

    My budget is $600. The information on your website has been very informative.

    Could you please provide information on what type of guns would be good options and where I could purchase the gun?

                                  Thank you for your time,
 

                            'Joe A-K Buyer'

Hi Joe,

    Your scenario for finding a Good AK (like an MAK-90, NHH-90, SAR-1, Intrac MK-1, SA-85M or a Maadi ARM for around $600 - is tough nowadays) - as 'Fear of Obama' banning AK's in November (or sooner with Martial Law) has NOW caused DEMAND to outstrip the SUPPLY of Good AK's & trying to 'Crystal Ball' where one can find good 'No-Longer-Imported' AK's like those mentioned on our rifles page (below) is literally like finding a needle in a haystack !!!

    The 1st place we recommend to find a 'Good AK' is your local Pawn Shop, as they own their AK's cheap - loaning 1/3 to a 1/4 of the Rifle's true value to acquire many of the AK's they get & almost ALL Pawn Shops in the USA usually have Police check the serial # of any gun they sell - something MANY regular Gun Dealers don't do !

   The next places for finding a Good AK - are BEFORE a Gun Show (in the line waiting to get in) & during the Gun Show & ONLINE AUCTIONS.

    BUT BUYER BEWARE - as you'll be faced with a lot of 'Wannabe' AK's that AK47World.com CANNOT RECOMMEND - like the Romanian WASR-10, GP-10/63, Romanian M-10, AMD-65 'Kit Guns' & Yugoslavian PAP AK's (Rifle on blue velvet background in picture below) !!!

New AK Buyers are COMPLAINING that there's a SHORTAGE of Good AK's out there for SALE as Fear of Obama's re-election is CAUSING the 'Summer of the Gun' in 2012 with decreased Supply-but INCREASED DEMAND & a Lack of Good AK's to buy = Higher Prices & Good AK's are SCARCE !!!
 
 

DON'T get 'Suckered' by the New Crop of Yugoslavian M70 'PAP' AK-47's (pictured above) - which are PRONE to 'Catatrophic FAILURE' due to importer MILLING OUT the former 'Single-Stack' Yugo PAP M70 AK's to take Hi-Cap Mags - but the 'PAP' has a Narrow Trunnion - that when opened to accept Hi-Cap Mags - make the Rifle considerably WEAKER in the Critical Trunnion/Chamber area that sees the MOST STRESS of an AK-47's firing/usage cycle !!!

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

OMG - Look @ these PRICES for Russian VEPR AK's that WILL NOT ACCEPT Regular AK Mags & therefore are NOT Something AK47World.com can recommend to buy !!!

Here's the FBI's latest NICS (National Instant Check) figures as people PREPARE for what's coming:

March 2012 FBI NICS Background Checks Surge 20% !!!

http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2012/04/robert-farago/march-fbi-nics-background-checks-surge-20/

Buyers in record numbers are flooding into gun stores, retailers say. Ammo, too, is flying off the shelves. The reasons for the spike, last seen in 2009, include fears that a second Obama administration might restrict gun ownership...

Alan Korwin, author of nine books on gun laws, including "Gun Laws of America," says gun owners are worried that Barack Obama, as a lame duck President, will clamp down as never before on gun ownership!

Stocks of gun makers are surging. Sturm, Ruger's share price is up 55 percent this year. Smith & Wesson soared 91 percent. Sporting goods and hunting retailer Cabela's is up 53 percent.

Gun maker Sturm, Ruger says that in the first quarter it received orders for more than 1 million firearms--so many that it has now had to stop taking orders. Says a notice on its website: "Despite the company's continuing successful efforts to increase production rates, the incoming order rate exceeds our capacity to rapidly fulfill these orders. Consequently, the company has temporarily suspended the acceptance of new orders."

 
 
 
 
    And if you don't 'See the Handwriting on the Wall' (see the ABC News article above about Gun Sales SKY-ROCKETING' & the FBI NICS Background Checks are JUMPING 20%) & that 'Good AK's' like this Romanian SAR-1 (no longer importable) will be $800 to $1,000 by this Fall or Summer !!!
/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
And if you REALLY think a Side-Folding Stock & a Bayonet Lug (type 1 Bayo lug pictured) is WORTH OVER $1600 - here's a Chinese Poly-Tech 56S-2 Side-folder AK/S-762 - but has a Norinco Pistol Grip!!!

 

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
 
MPORTANT NOTICE: While some 'Billy Bob' types on Gun Websites selectively READ what's on this website concerning PROBLEMS with Century Arms built weapons - as AK47World.com has NEVER SAID that ALL Century-built Guns are JUNK (while others might say that...) - ASK them if you buy a new Century WASR-10, GP-10/63, a Romanian M-10 or an I/O (Inter Ordnance) AK & it doesn't function properly - WILL THEY BUY IT Back FROM YOU !!!
 
/////////////////////////////////////////////////
 
See (below) what Keith a 1st STA platoon Marine "SCOUT SNIPER" says:
 
    "I'm pretty familiar with most AR variants, as well as some AKs I handled while serving in a Marine STA platoon for 5yrs.
I choose AK's over AR's for their performance in combat environments.
 
     When you don't have time to clean your weapon, like the AR variants and run them wet, the AR's/M-16's WILL lock up.
 
     Not like the AK as most engagements are close, unlike what 'Call of Duty' folks think. Long range isn't LONG range most of the time. Especially, since the enemy is moving more than stationary.
 
     Anyway's, I'm looking at a MAK91 from a local seller. I did look at a WASR when I went to the local gun shop. Honestly, I wouldn't let my 10 yr. old boy shoot that junk.
 
     I love my SAR 2. It's a superb weapons platform TBH & the fit and finish on it's great. The paint might not be the best, but that doesn't effect rounds on target.
 
     It can be re-painted for personal preference. I'm a 'K.I.S.S.' Jarhead. I like wood furniture and iron sights. Wood's a good insulator and iron sights don't need batteries."

cheer's,
Keith

///////////////////////////////////////////////////

    But AK47World.com does hear MORE COMPLAINTS about Century Arms built weapons than any other AK's & ALWAYS ADVISES AK Buyers to try to SELECT AK's built in 'Real Military Factories' 
 
   Like this MILLED MAK-90 beauty:
 
    As Norinco & Poly-Tech of China build EXCELLENT AK's, and so does Hungary with their SA-85M AK's by F.E.G. (not AMD-65 'Kit Guns' by Century...), 'Real' Yugoslavian AK's - imported by Mitchell Arms of Santa Ana, CA in the 1980's, Egyptian Maadi AKM, ARM, RPM & RML models only (not the MISR & MISR-90 'creations' by Century Arms...), 'Real' Bulgarian AK's like the SA-93, SLR-95, SLR-96, SLR-101 & SLR-105, and 'Real' Romanian AK's like the Intrac MK-I (AK-47), MK-II (AK-74) & early SAR-1, SAR-2 & SAR-3 Rifles !
 
Otherwise here's a RANT by one of Century's Golani (Galil Clone) 'victims':

Report on Century Arms Warranty repair

"Let me preface this by saying Uzitalk.com's ban on profanity is really limiting my ability to express myself fully about Century Arms.

I have the Golani with the new receiver and the "F" stamp (I'm having new thoughts about what that "F" stands for
). Like most everyone else on this forum, the gun had jamming and accuracy problems, mostly from the shell guide being too low and the shells jamming and deforming into the face of the barrel.

So I sent it back to Century Arms.


After more than a month, the same rifle was returned with miniscule dremmelling having been performed around the barrel. The shells still jam into the face. There is no evidence that any work was done on the shell guide other than the fact that the clips will no longer lock into place (they worked fine before). When I cycle a round to watch it jam, the clip falls out on the floor. Both clips!


I also (admittedly wishful thinking on my part) asked them to look at the rifling in the barrel since it is so indistinct as to be difficult to tell which way it turns. I will assume they took the word "look" literally because I got the same P.O.S. back.


I have decided that if I am attacked by the savage hordes, I will simply lay the Golani at their feet and watch them blow out an aorta trying to make the @$#%*# thing work!"

Golani problems....

I've got a Century Arms Golani sporter that's been back to my shop a couple of times and I can't find anything wrong. First time it was obviously short stroking and I found a mangled gas port. Fixed that and it ran fine. Now the guy says it's doing "the same thing" and it seems to not eject. Are these Golani's known for problems?

In Response To: Galani problems.... (Mike)

Galils work, Period. The Golani is assembled with worn out parts, on a second rate receiver, by minimum wage workers. POS usually.

.223 and 5.56 AK's in general........

In Response To: Golani problems.... (Mike)

I have seen quite a few .223 and 5.56 AK's experience failures to strip a round from the magazine, or catch the groove instead of the back of the case head. Usually mis-diagnosed as short stroking or a magazine/mag catch issue. What's actually happening is there's enough slop in the bolt/carrier fitment, and carrier receiver fitment, as well as flex during firing, that the bolt comes up high enough to miss the case head. You can't replicate it on the bench since you can't simulate the flex during firing.

The fix I have come up with takes about a minute. Lay a tiny Tig bead on the underside of the bolt carrier to force the bolt downward when it's in its forward feeding position.

Biggest 'Piece of Junk' AK-47 of 2012 - the Yugoslavian PAP Single-Stack AK-47 ???
AK47World.com has repeatedly bought out distributors of 10 round mags & there's virtually NO Single-Stack Romanian AK mags in the USA - other than a few you might find in auctions = you GOT SCREWED by the guy who SOLD you the PAP Rifle !!! 
 
This Just in - NOW we SEE that Century Arms - reacting to 'No Single Stack Mags' being available for their Yugo PAP Rifles - is doing what's a 'Recipe for Disaster' - MILLING OPEN Yugo PAP Rifles with their Narrow Trunnions - that makes for possible Trunnion Cracks (after warranty) & a totally USELESS Rifle once this happens = Buyer BEWARE !!!

Re: I just want a cheap AK - should I buy a WASR-10 AK-47

Although Mass Marketers on the Internet & @ Gun Shows (you know who you are) seem to CARE MORE about what gun puts $$$ in their pockets the FASTEST & could give a Rat's Ass whether that's the BEST AK for you as they sell Romanian WASR-10 AK's & buyers should REALIZE they MIGHT get an WASR-10 that works just FINE - or YOU MIGHT get a TOTAL NIGHTMARE of an AK !

   Just "Google" WASR-10 & WEED THROUGH the confusing counter postings that are many times put on there by Century....

    Buyers should also take NOTICE the lack of indentations on the receiver above where the magazine (clip) goes into the rifle - as a properly-made AKM's (stamped AK-47's) SHOULD HAVE INDENTATIONS (dimples) on their receivers - see the photo & text below on the problem this presents! http://www.thehighroad.org/archive/index.php/t-124394.html

 

 

     If the WASR-10 functions OK w/o 'Failure to Feed' or 'Failure to extract' problems - then it's worth $500 to some retailers - as many  distributors are ALL SOLD OUT of this less-than-desirable AK-47 w/o dimples on its receiver for proper magazine alignment - as the WASR-10 tries to compensate for this with defeciency by having pieces of sheet metal welded into its magazine well - (see Google & You tube for more on issues SOME PEOPLE have with WASR-10 AK's - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m6H_sw-YKOc ) !!!

    Still, besides the numerous problems that SOME have with WASR-10's - it's the LOWEST-PRICED AK-47 on the market & many Gun dealers & their 'victims' (uneducated buyers) ignore the WARRANTY NIGHTMARES that others have had with Century's WASR-10 Rifles - as some WASR-10's can be OK ?

    The problem with Century Arms - could be a gamble with your time & your $$$ (that you won't have with a Norinco MAK-90, Hungarian SA-85M, or Bulgarian SA-93, SLR-95, etc.) - because even if the WASR-10 is new & the WASR-10 has problems - you won't get a new rifle from the FFL dealer who sold it to you if the rifle has problems & if the WASR-10 is used - how much $$$ do you want to spend for a gunsmith to fix the WASR-10 if you have no warranty ???


//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

So, if I buy a MAK-90, could I then put a muzzle brake on the rifle and still be in compliance with 18 USC 44 Section 922(r)?

    If you thread your MAK-90 Barrel (Tap & Die cost over $50) or have a gunsmith do it - the ATF still says you must Tac-Weld or Silver Solder a new Muzzle Brake onto the MAK-90's barrel.

    Or, you can try AK47World's lower cost idea of buying a threaded muzzle brake & grinding off the threads - then smacking the de-threaded brake onto your barrel with a mallet & either use JB Weld or a Tac-Weld to keep it in place.

WTS: NIB Sealed Polytech Legend AK-47 - $2500
By: The 'Over-Priced Man' in Macon, GA
Date: 3/7/11 17:34

We have in the store and ready for immediate shipment a NIB Polytech Legend AK-47 pattern rifle chambered in 7.62x39. This is a milled receiver rifle and it comes with all factory accessories. When we say new in box, we mean that the plastic bag in which the rifle is packed in the box has not been opened. It is new enough that it comes with the cardboard box in which the factory card board box was shipped. This is absolutely as good as it gets for someone in the market for such a rifle.

For any further information, question, or additional pictures, please feel free to e-mail us or call me at:

Bulgarian Arsenal Type 3 SLR AK47 Milled $1500 that appears to be in FELONY Violation of 18 USC 44 Section 922r STATUS !!!

   Yes that's right - you READ CORRECTLY - as the Post Ban SA-93 (Sentinel Arms 1993 import) pictured below - if it had its original thumbhole stock replaced with a detached pistol grip - still MUST have 5 U.S. Parts on it - but with Russian Wood & Soviet Bakelite mag - even with a new U.S. Made Trigger Group - it constitutes a FELONY Violation of 18 USC 44 Section 922(r) with Soviet Wood & a Soviet Bakelite magazine !!!

Date: 2/11/11 03:17

Here is a very nice Bulgarian SLR93 with all matching numbers made in Bulgaria by Arsenal with bayonet lug, threaded muzzle, and Russian wood stock set. The rifle has had a beautiful black paint job done and comes with a bayonet and Russian bakelite 30 round 7.62X39 magazine. This is not a parts kit gun built up on a Bulgarian receiver, this is a complete milled original rifle that has had professional work done to bring it back to look just like a Russian military Type 3 rifle. Rifle has the rear sling swivel so it can accept an AK sling on the receiver. Rare chance to get an imported AK47 milled rifle with original parts, receiver, and barrel. Awesome rifle and it will make a wonderful presentation piece or shooter. Feel free to email or call me with questions. I will cover UPS ground shipping to your FFL dealer (that is if the ATF indictment on him already for selling AK's to Mexican cartel members doesn't land him in jail, first !!!) - Joe Blow...

Above (in the 3 pictures) is a Bulgarian SA-93 that originally sold for around $379 dollars back in 1993 & 94 when they were imported with wood thumbhole stocks that scammers like the one above will try to turn into what the seller hopes buyers will think is a 'Pre-Ban' style Milled AK-47 for $1500 by welding on a rear lower tang to hold the pre-ban buttstock - that saavy AK shoppers can do for themselves for a WHOLE LOT LESS $$$

 

   Also, on the other end of the AK spectrum - pictured below is a Russian Saiga 'IZ series' AK - that we constantly hear kids & others say, "I saw a 'Real' Russian AK-47 for $350 OR $400 or so..."

   Oh really !!!

   Unfortunately they're unable to accurately compare Sporter AK's like the Saiga IZ series (pictured below) to realize that after they convert the non-pistol Grip Saiga IZ AK-47 (pictured below) to have a standard Pistol Grip & standard or folding stock AK-47 buttstock & pistol grip (over $100 in most cases - which then makes their $350 bargain cost over $450...) - they'll still have a non-standard AK-47 that WON'T ACCEPT Standard AK-47 Mags/clips or drums - as special Surefire 30 round Mags COST OVER $40 a piece to fit in the Saiga IZ series AK-47 pictured below !!!

or Stamped-Receiver NHM-90 Rifles (pictured above) or stamped-receiver Chinese MAK-90 rifles (pictured below) offer the BEST Values in AK-47's - as Chinese MAK-90 Rifles offer 'Double-hook Trigger & Hammer Groups (see picture below) and 50% thicker 1.5mm receivers than the thinner 1mm receivers used on Romanian AK-47's that only have 'Single-Hook' trigger groups - as Chinese triggers feel much better when shooting - due to the 'Double-Hook' hammers also used in Milled Bulgarian AK-47's - like the SA-93, SLR-95, SLR-96, SLR-100H, SA-M7 & SAS-7 Rifles.

 

for the U.S. Retail AK-47 Gun Market today -

Here's some comments on the new Century Arms model 'M-74' - a so-called Bulgarian AK-74's being offered for under $400 wholesale:

The Bad:
Front sight has the "Century Arms Canted Sight"
Two rivets on trigger guard are not fully seated
One rivet on trunion is a bit suspect
Cleaning rod is probably for 7.62 rifle (button head won't fit bore)
Numbers don't match...anything
Bore does not appear to be chromed
The lower hand guard looks like it was dremeled to fit
The lower hand guard retainer is ridiculously tight

The Good:
Otherwise fit and finish is pretty good
Has a scope rail
The muzzle device is removable (but looks crude)

The Odd:
The cleaning kit looks like it's a G3 kit. That's okay. I needed one of those any way.
The front trunion has no serial number (NOS? Or US made?)

   
     

Hello, until we complete this Rifles page with pictures of the various AK-47 variants - here's some information you might find helpful.

 First of all - BUYERS are advised that the BEST AK-47 DEALS for $500 or less - are usually foreign-made AK-47 variants (SLR-95, MAK-90, SA-85M, etc) which came into the U.S. with ugly thumbhole stocks that can easily be changed out per 18 USC 44 Section 922r).
 
   But the better-made foreign AK's (sorry 'buy USA' types - but the AK-47 is a foreign-born weapon & the best ones - FOR THE MONEY - are made in Foreign Arsenals with actual ComBloc Military backgrounds!) some are LAZY & think they can urged to STAY AWAY from the Vermont 'creation' of Century Arms - the junk of the current retail AK-47's OFFERED in the U.S. retail market - the very 'questionable' Romanian WASR-10 AK-47 variants - of which MORE INFO can be found on discussion threads via Google or Bing searches - or on videos about the WASR-10 on YouTube!
   Otherwise - STAY TUNED as our reviews of GOOD AK-47 variants to BUY is expanded on www.ak47world.com

 
   In the meantime www.ak47world.com advises what AK-47's to buy & which ones ARE NOT RECOMMENDED!
AK AMD 65 Rifle with Side-Folding Stock #AKAGUN-AMD
 
  Guns like the Romanian WASR-10 are modified IN VERMONT to meet current U.S. import restrictions - as SOME have problems accepting military-issue drums & magazines (clips) due to poor workmanship by Century's workers & are BAD DEALS compared to better foreign-built AK-47 variants - LIKE the 'REAL' Bulgarian SA-93, SLR-95, SLR-96, Chinese MAK-90, NHM-90, NHM-91 & Hungarian (F.E.G.) SA-85M!

 
  Foreign-built AK-47 variants with thumbhole stocks - are MUCH EASIER to change the stocks on than to deal with a poorly-built AK-47's - like WASR-10's, GP-75's, AMD-65's & parts kit Polish AK's out there - as they lack the quality of AK-47's built in foreign arsenals where real military AK-47's are made to military specifications! 

   
The best thumbhole DEALS are AK-47's like the Bulgarian SA-93, SLR-95 or SLR-96 models, or Chinese-built Norinco MAK-90, NHM-90, NHM-91 and MAK-91 AK-47 variants, and Hungarian SA-85M models - that are no longer imported.

   Also, these 100% foreign military arsenal-built 'Quality' AK's CANNOT be ordered anymore by dealers from their DISTRIBUTORS - because Bill Clinton's November 1997 Executive Order ('XO') forbid the import of these better foreign-built AK's that accept standard HIGH-CAPACITY AK-47 magazines!

 

Unless someone just wants to WASTE $$$ on a bayonet lug or flash-hider - the best Semi-Auto AK-47 variants ever imported into the U.S. are these foreign arsenal built AK-47's:

    1. Bulgarian SA-93, SLR-95, and SLR-96

    2. Chinese Norinco MAK-90/NHM-90/NHM-91/MAK-91

    3. The Hungarian SA-85M

ALL of which represent a MUCH BETTER VALUE than a lesser-quality Romanian WASR-10, Century Arms GP-75, Century Yugo M70AB, Saiga or VEPR Russian-made AK-47 Rifles!

 


    While you can still put folding stocks on thumbhole AK's mentioned above - if you replace the thumbhole stock - you must then add 5 U.S. made 922(r) compliant parts - like a Tapco mag & U.S. grip & forearms.

 
   The important thing here - is that the build-quality of foreign-built AK's usually far surpasses any AK's put together today in the U.S. - unless you spend a $1,000 for a Kreb's Custom Russian-style AK-47 or spend $900 or more for a Bulgarian SLR-107FR  or Legion SGL-20 from the custom shop of Izhmash of Russia!
   
    So, if you'd rather just get a GOOD $500 to $600 ak-47 -  you'll have to look around for AK-47 variants that represent GOOD VALUE- as there's a lot of dealers who looking out for their PROFITS - at your expense - as they sell tons of low-quality Romanian WASR-10 or GP-75 AK's - while companies like Lancaster Consulting or Red Jacket Arms want BIG BUCKS for their better-built AK's - that OLDER - 'No Longer-Imported' Chinese MAK-90's & Bulgarian SLR-95's  will usually surpass for FAR LESS $$$ - but without the 'Drugstore Commando' BAYONET LUGS - that most people WILL NEVER USE anyway!


    But if no good AK's for $500 to $600 AK's can be found, the best AK-47s that www.AK47world.com recommends - are these models which used to sell for $500 or so:

 
  1. Bulgarian SLR-95; SLR-96 & SA-93 (all milled-receivers - EXCELLENT GUNS!)

 
  2.  Chinese MAK-90 rifles - both stamped and milled receiver models (if you look hard enough) can be found as well as the stamped military-style NHM-90 rifles.
 
3.  Chinese RPK Sporters NMH-91 (stamped) & milled MAK-91 
 
4.  Hungarian SA-85M by F.E.G.
 
5. Maadi ARM, RPM & RML models from Egypt, but stay away from Maadi MISR-90 & MISR-10 models...)
 
6. Romanian Intrac MK-1, Romak-1 or "WUM-1" models (only imported in 1997) NOT Romanian WASR-10 and some SAR-1 models - which are at their best - MA
RGINALLY OK' as quality varies alot with Romanian rifles

FIRST OFF, Romanian FPK/PSL (Romak-3) rifles - which at usually under $800 & REPRESENT A GOOD BUY for a 1000 yd. affordable DMR (Designated Marksman Rifle) that's MUCH CHEAPER to SHOOT than any M-14 or AR-10, etc. - as .308 AMMO is close to .75 cents a round - compared to .25 cents or lower for the LARGER Soviet 7.62 x 54R round used by PSL's & SVD (real Dragunov)!
 
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
 

WARNING: WHILE MAK-90 RIFLES ARE USUALLY THE RIFLE WE RECOMMEND as "The Best ENTRY-LEVEL/low-priced AK-47 variant" for sale in America today...

   Just remember to STAY AWAY from MAK-90 rifles imported by the importer "Le Banu" of upstate New York, (but NOT ALL MAK-90 Rifles, as some will incorrectly infer), that are marked with 3 position fire-control selector markings (sometimes in Chinese characters, other times with the letters "L and D" for the 3 positions on the right side of the receiver), as the ATF classifies these as "ILLEGAL MACHINE GUN RECEIVERS" with, or without the receiver being drilled for a 3rd axis pin!

 

   Also, until the ATF stops trying to keep this information 'TOP SECRET' as a 'selective enforcement tool' - seemingly an ATF trademark(?) & posts this information on its website.

 

    Remember, the ATF fully realizes that if they take your rifle, your attorney fees will easily cost you thousands of dollars & outweigh the cost of your AK-47, so BE CAREFUL when buying any AK-47 variant for evidence of a 3 position receiver (as seen in the photos below) or an AK variant that upon inspection appears to have parts that you've not seen in other semi-auto AK-47 variants, or else send pictures of the rifle to sales@ak47world.com until we can tell you what we see in your pictures!

IMGP02.JPG ILLEGAL Machine Gun Receiver MAK-90 with 3 position Receiver = FELONY !!!

If you're buying a MAK-90, beware of getting one with a "third-hole axis pin" There are still a few MAK-90s out there that are considered "machine guns" by BATFE. (Sometimes imported by LABANU INC, Ronkonkoma, NY) These Norinco receivers have the "third hole" for the auto sear drilled through the receiver just above the mag release. This will look like a second flattened rivet/screw right above the mag release. The rivet will go right through the receiver, and be riveted on both sides. If there are two rivets right next to each other above the mag release, don't buy it. Do not confuse the third hole with the hammer stop, which is a convex rivet. The auto-sear rivet is flat. If you come across such a MAK-90, do NOT buy it!

 

 

 

 

Also, there are some Maadi ARM rifles out there with what the ATF terms as an 'Illegal Machinegun Receiver", as well as some of the early CLAYCO AK-47 imports, that will be marked with the words, "Modifications to this Rifle are Unsafe & Illegal", again whether or not the 3rd axis pin hole is drilled in the receiver.

Remember, the ATF fully realizes that if they take your rifle, your attorney fees will easily outweigh the cost of the rifle, so BE CAREFUL when buying some of these imports, or send pictures of the rifle to sales@ak47world.com until we post some pictures of these rifles!

While the market is currently flooded with low-price so-called Romanian AK-47's, like the WASR-10 & SAR-1 AKM variants, a SMART AK-47 buyer would be wiser to buy an AK-47 variant made in a foreign arsenal, unless that buyer is prepared to spend more money for one of the better-made U.S. assembled AK-47 variants from Arsenal USA, or Krebs Kustoms, Legion SGL-20 Rifles or Bulgarian variants from either Arsenal of Bulgaria or the U.S. Arsenal Inc. & maybe a Tennessee Guns AK-47 variant!

Note: not all SAR-1 variants are bad, but far too many have problems than we've seen with Norinco type 56 stamped AK-47 variants, like the MAK-90, NHM-90, and Chinese RPK Sporter known as the NHM-91, and why U.S.N. SEAL TEAMS & the Finnish Defence Force (FDF) of FINLAND, as well as Hamas, Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, the Northern Alliance, & Bill Clinton's drug-smuggling 'friends' at the Kosovo Liberation Front' also CHOSE NORINCO stamped type 56 AKM rifles!

Through the years of handling & firing AK-47 variants, we've found out quickly what AK's have problems, and what AK's do not. (like the good Maadi ARM & RPM rifles, as compared to the bad Maadi rifles, like the MISR-90 and certain batches of Romanian/U.S. modified S.A.R./WASR-10 series rifles)

The Navy Seals and the Military Defense Council of Finland, both selected Norinco of China to supply Chinese type 56 AK-47 rifles, which are virtually identical (except for select-fire components) to the Norinco MAK-90, & without the MAK-90's thumbhole stock).

THAT SHOULD TELL YOU SOMETHING, as the GALIL AK's, F.E.G.'s from Hungary, Arsenal of Bulgaria, and Russian AK's were all tested against the Chinese Norinco, and the Norinco came out on top as the most rugged, and best value DUE TO THE USE OF THICKER 1.5MM STAMPED CHINESE RECEIVERS, DOUBLE-HOOK TRIGGERS FOR SMOOTHER TRIGGER-PULL, and thicker Chinese barrels, despite the fact that it would have been easier for Finland and the U. S. Navy Seals to buy AK-47 variants from other Eastern European, or Russian sources.

Finally, Norinco of China, Zastava of Yugoslavia, and Valmet/Sako of Finland all use at least 1.5mm steel for their stamped receivers on their AK variants, thus eliminating the need for "mickey-mouse" anti-trip devices (band-aid that does not solve the problem of too thin receivers) found in the trigger groups of thinner 1mm steel receivers of Warsaw-Pact AKM's.

AKM is the Russian term of: Avtomat Kalashnikova Modernizya , which means modernized AK-47, referring to the stamped AKM versus the milled AK-47 of 1947.

Warsaw-Pact AKM's include: Soviet/Russian mfg.,F.E.G. of Hungary (SA-85's, etc.), and Romanian W.U.M.-1's, W.U.M.-2's, S.A.R.1, S.A.R.2, S.A.R. 3's, as well as Maadi AKM's, RML, RPM, and the MISR-90.

What does receiver thickness and the lack of "mickey-mouse" anti-trip device that only complicates your trigger group, mean to AKM performance???

Simple, if you only fire your thinner receiver AKM variants lightly, you usually won't have any problems.

But if you need more out of your AK, like sustained fire/rapid fire, like with 75, or 100 round drums, or with other "extreme situations", the thicker 1.5mm stamped receivers found in Norinco, Valmet/Sako, and Zastava/Serbian rifles are more durable.

     This means the thicker 1.5mm receiver AK's are a lot less likely to experience malfunctions like the thinner 1mm receiver AK's do, when the thicker receiver Chinese, Yugoslavian, or Valmet's get hot under rapid fire, sustained-fire situations, because there's less "fatigue", thus "flex" & jams, in the thicker 1.5mm steel receivers, than in the thinner-walled receivers of the Warsaw-Pact AKM-type rifles.

   For more info, you can call us at either phone # (786) 261-9273 or (720) 940-1458 and STAY TUNED

                                                                                             Thanks from www.ak47world.com
 

    Also - Another EXCELLENT VALUE - are the Romanian PSL (Romak-3) 7.62 x 54R Caliber Rifles - which at usually under $800 REPRESENT one of the BEST BUYS currently found for 1000 yd. affordable DMR's (Designated Marksman Rifles) that are MUCH CHEAPER to SHOOT than any .308/7.62 Nato caliber M-14, FN'FAL or AR-10, etc. - as .308 AMMO is around .75 cents a round - compared to .25 cents or lower for the LARGER Soviet 7.62 x 54R round used by PSL's & SVD (real Dragunov)!
 
The problem in magazine selection - is that many call a Romanian PSL RIFLE as supposedly a Russian SVD Dragunov, to FALSELY DESCRIBE a stamped Romanian PSL (Puska Semi-Automata Luneta, or Scoped Semi-Automatic Rifle), that's basically a stretched RPK (Ruchnoi Pulyemet Kalashnikova = Handheld 'Bullet-Thrower' Kalashnikov) that the Russians call an FPK, or Feyderov Pulyemet Kalashnikova, or Kalashnikov 'Bullet-Thrower' that fires Feyderov cartidges (7.62 x 54R ammo), and which has an AKM style receiver, action & trigger group!

 

Finally, while many would never think that a pellet/bb gun would ever earn them a FELONY - THINK AGAIN - as the ATF has declared certain models of Russian AK-74 style Izhmash/Baikal BB/Pellet Guns as "ILLEGAL MACHINEGUN RECEIVERS" - that are marked as 'Junker' or 'Yunker' on their receivers!

  This silly "Once a Machinegun - ALWAYS a MACHINEGUN" ruling by the ATF ignores the fact that these former Izhmash manufactured AK-74's have had their trigger groups fully removed, and replaced with a large hole cut in bottom of the receiver, which then accepts a Baikal BB/Pellet pistol, that then sits inside the former AK-74's receiver and fires its BB's and Pellets through what is an enlarged hollow cleaning rod, as the rifle's original barrel is plugged to prevent 'projectiles' from passing through the barrel!

While the market is currently flooded with low-price so-called Romanian AK-47's, like the WASR-10 & SAR-1 AKM variants, a SMART AK-47 buyer would be wiser to buy an AK-47 variant made in a foreign arsenal, unless that buyer is prepared to spend more money for one of the better-made foreign AK or one of the better-made U.S. assembled AK-47 variants from Arsenal USA, or Krebs Kustoms, Legion SGL-20 Rifles or Bulgarian variants from either Arsenal of Bulgaria or the U.S. Arsenal Inc. & maybe a Tennessee Guns AK-47 variant!

Note: not all SAR-1 variants are bad, but far too many have problems than we've seen with Norinco type 56 stamped AK-47 variants, like the MAK-90, NHM-90, and Chinese RPK Sporter known as the NHM-91, and why U.S.N.

This Just in - U.S. Troops are Dying in Afghanistan - due to their Pathetic M-4 & M-16 Rifles JAMMING in Firefights!!!

  And even though the U.S. Military has No Money to replace the M-16 & M-4 - with the Heckler & Koch XM-8 or G-36 - WHY NOT Shoot the 'Bad Guys' & pick-up their better-working AK-47's & PKM's - (that would of course be too cost effective & make too much sense for U.S. Commanders)

 

 

 

 

M-4/M-16 Fail US troops during Afghan firefight

 

As U.S. Troops DIE in Afghanistan Due to PATHETIC M-4 & M-16's Jamming in Firefights against AK-47's !!!

WASHINGTON – In the chaos of an early morning assault on a remote U.S. outpost in eastern Afghanistan, Staff Sgt. Erich Phillips' M4 carbine quit firing as militant forces surrounded the base. The machine gun he grabbed after tossing the rifle aside didn't work either.

When the battle in the small village of Wanat ended, nine U.S. soldiers lay dead and 27 more were wounded. A detailed study of the attack by a military historian found that weapons failed repeatedly at a "critical moment" during the firefight on July 13, 2008, putting the outnumbered American troops at risk of being overrun by nearly 200 insurgents.

Which raises the question: Eight years into the war against the Taliban in Afghanistan, do U.S. armed forces have the best guns money can buy?

Despite the military's insistence that they do, a small but vocal number of troops in Afghanistan and Iraq has complained that the standard-issue M4 rifles need too much maintenance and jam at the worst possible times.

A week ago, eight U.S. troops were killed at a base near Kamdesh, a town near Wanat. There's no immediate evidence of weapons failures at Kamdesh, but the circumstances were eerily similar to the Wanat battle: insurgents stormed an isolated stronghold manned by American forces stretched thin by the demands of war.

Army Col. Wayne Shanks, a military spokesman in Afghanistan, said a review of the battle at Kamdesh is under way. "It is too early to make any assumptions regarding what did or didn't work correctly," he said.

Complaints about the weapons the troops carry, especially the M4, aren't new. Army officials say that when properly cleaned and maintained, the M4 is a quality weapon that can pump out more than 3,000 rounds before any failures occur.

The M4 is a shorter, lighter version of the M16, which made its debut during the Vietnam war. Roughly 500,000 M4s are in service, making it the rifle troops on the front lines trust with their lives.

Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., a leading critic of the M4, said Thursday the Army needs to move quickly to acquire a combat rifle suited for the extreme conditions U.S. troops are fighting in.

U.S. special operations forces, with their own acquisition budget and the latitude to buy gear the other military branches can't, already are replacing their M4s with a new rifle.

"The M4 has served us well but it's not as good as it needs to be," Coburn said.

Battlefield surveys show that nearly 90 percent of soldiers are satisfied with their M4s, according to Brig. Gen. Peter Fuller, head of the Army office that buys soldier gear. Still, the rifle is continually being improved to make it even more reliable and lethal.

Fuller said he's received no official reports of flawed weapons performance at Wanat. "Until it showed up in the news, I was surprised to hear about all this," he said.

The study by Douglas Cubbison of the Army Combat Studies Institute at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., hasn't been publicly released. Copies of the study have been leaked to news organizations and are circulating on the Internet.

Cubbison's study is based on an earlier Army investigation and interviews with soldiers who survived the attack at Wanat. He describes a well-coordinated attack by a highly skilled enemy that unleashed a withering barrage with AK-47 automatic rifles and rocket-propelled grenades.

The soldiers said their weapons were meticulously cared for and routinely inspected by commanders. But still the weapons had breakdowns, especially when the rifles were on full automatic, which allows hundreds of bullets to be fired a minute.

The platoon-sized unit of U.S. soldiers and about two dozen Afghan troops was shooting back with such intensity the barrels on their weapons turned white hot. The high rate of fire appears to have put a number of weapons out of commission, even though the guns are tested and built to operate in extreme conditions.

Cpl. Jonathan Ayers and Spc. Chris McKaig were firing their M4s from a position the soldiers called the "Crow's Nest." The pair would pop up together from cover, fire half a dozen rounds and then drop back down.

On one of these trips up, Ayers was killed instantly by an enemy round. McKaig soon had problems with his M4, which carries a 30-round magazine.

"My weapon was overheating," McKaig said, according to Cubbison's report. "I had shot about 12 magazines by this point already and it had only been about a half hour or so into the fight. I couldn't charge my weapon and put another round in because it was too hot, so I got mad and threw my weapon down."

The soldiers also had trouble with their M249 machine guns, a larger weapon than the M4 that can shoot up to 750 rounds per minute.

Cpl. Jason Bogar fired approximately 600 rounds from his M-249 before the weapon overheated and jammed the weapon.

Bogar was killed during the firefight, but no one saw how he died, according to the report.
