Looking for a AK

Recommended Posts

buy a wasr if you can find one, if not then check out DDI or even palmetto. those would be my recommendations, I would also try to stay away from the new century builds, I was considering buying one until they came out with a proprietary side rail, that killed it for me

Vepr, wasr npap, definately a saiga if you can find one.

 

personally i have a saiga and a wasr

 

avoid things like the century ras47, they have reports of soft front trunions causing headspacing issues

 

The PSA47 looks very promising, as do the new DDI rifles

 

dont even let the words IO enter your head

All good advice so far. I would suggest an import over a domestic for a million reasons, especially if it's your first AK.

 

I'd suggest a Vepr or sar1. Can't beat them for their price and a ton better than your normal WASR. Yugos are nice, I think people make too big of a deal in terms of their somewhat proprietary furniture. They're solid rifles, different furniture doesn't bother most people including me but we all have our preferences.

Nothing but good experiences with the Century Arms c39v2. They run for $800 to $900 and are American made as well. Luciano's in Lodi had some about week ago.

 

WASRs are not bad choices either especially for the price. You just need to be sure the sights are properly aligned and check for internal damage. AK Operators Union on YouTube is a great source of information and tests on various AKMs. I hope this post helps.

 

P.S. Gun For Hire in Woodland Park have a few models to rent as well.

I might be selling my sam7r-61n if anyone is looking in that price range. Shoot me a PM if you're interested.

 

It has the RS regulate side mount with PA advanced microdot, AKT trigger, and warsaw length buttstock.

That's the model Arsenal I have. Very nice!

 

You gotta be nuts to even think about selling a gun the day before this election

Interesting to hear that.  Seems that Century Arms AK's get little love on here.  I'm looking for another AK as well (I currently have a Saiga),

and the CA look and price point are attractive.

Surprise, surprise: every shop in Camden, Gloucester, and western Burlington county wants $100 more than "normal" price. Just like every other firearm they have for sale.

 

If they're stocking the SAM7R-61N, it's been out of stock for a long time or it's been discontinued. 

 

You can get the regular version.  It just needs to be made compliant.

    • I have a Springfield 1903 that I inherited long ago.  It was my grandfather's, my father's and finally mine but I know little about it! I also have the original bayonet that it came with.  It's made by Springfield and the serial # is 249839.  I have been told it's unsafe to shoot at that #. I have found that this 1903 was actually made in 1903 and has a casehardened receiver. I know that myself and my descendants have never fired it. The rifling looks brand new for a 119 year old rifle! I know nothing about it's value, how to judge it's condition, etc.  I put a few quick pics below and would appreciate any guidance you could give me.  
    • That paragraph describes the method of securing a firearm when being transported under a number of clauses in that section. You have to read the whole thing. It begins with: So look back to see what 2C:39-5 says about handguns and rifles/shotguns: Note the 2 underlined parts. If you have a permit to carry a handgun, possession of a handgun is not a crime. Therefore, you cannot be exempted, because there is no offence to be exempted from. However, almost nobody ever gets a permit to carry a handgun so almost all of us have to work under the exemptions for handguns. If you have an FPIC, possession of a rifle or shotgun is not a crime. Therefore, you cannot be exempted, because there is no offence to be exempted from. Notice that there is no mention of a loaded handgun, therefore all handguns are treated the same, loaded or not which is how carry permit holders can carry loaded handguns - it is not until you are forced to transport under the exemptions that being unloaded is required for handguns. However, possession of loaded rifles or shotguns is specifically called out as an offence. The thing you may realize from this is that if you have an FPIC, you do not have to adhere to 2C:39-6.g and can have the unloaded rifle or shotgun uncased. That is not to say you wouldn't potentially get jammed up under another charge, such as causing a public alarm or disturbance if you were walking down Main St with it on a sling, but you're not committing a firearms offence per se. Now go back and read what HE and I have said before - do not take my word for any of this. I am not a lawyer and this advice is worth no more than what you paid me for it. Read the whole of 2C:39 and 2C:58 and the relevant parts of the Admin Code, and then decide for yourself whether you believe me or need to ask someone who is actually qualified to explain this.
    • The statutes for transporting firearms do not specify handguns, but seem to apply to all firearms?   2C:39-6 g.   Any weapon being transported under paragraph (2) of subsection b., subsection e., or paragraph (1) or (3) of subsection f. of this section shall be carried unloaded and contained in a closed and fastened case, gunbox, securely tied package, or locked in the trunk of the automobile in which it is being transported, and in the course of travel shall include only deviations as are reasonably necessary under the circumstances.
    • Passed my online exam, but no field sessions available yet. And can I bring a 12-gauge shotgun only, or do I have to use a muzzleloader too?   When do they resume? 
    • I have that same S&W 686 6 shot in a 2.5 barrel, and I keep it at arm's reach at night from my bed loaded with 38 +P HP ammo. 357 ammo has too much recoil in a 2.5 barrel for home defense.
