Shooting from 50 yards.

If all you need to do is open up your gas port, all you need is a piece of 1/4" dowel to protect the barrel.  I have the gas port drill bit.


Not sure what I have to do just yet, might have to knock the gas tube over just a bit. I'll let you know, thanks!

Check this out: The background is photoshopped. The rifle isn't.

Added a scope rail to my build today.  Now all I need to do is fix the safety stop and then finish sighting it in.

What type of rail? Side rail? did your receiver come with a side rail already on there?

It's an add on side rail that's attached with cap screws and nuts.  When I go back and fix the safety stop I may see if I can rivet it in place.  Need to find a decent optic mount to go with it though.

Someone else already posted a pic of the type of AK i have, but here it is again.

Mine is an M+M M10 varient. It comes with tapco stock, grip, and trigger, along with quad rail, and muzzle break.

I have an adjustable stock, red dot, mono sling, sling plate, front sight tool, and laser bore sight on the way already.

I spent 20 rounds at the range last weekend dialing in the windage on the rear site, only to notice a few days later that the front sight isnt centered...  :bangheadonwall:

I eventually want to add some sort or rail on/over the receiver. Which is the better choice? side mount (i have the lug already) or replace the receiver cover with one with a rail?

It shoots really well. I was impressed, just because ive read so many horror stories about cheap AK's. This one is online for $599 with free shipping, so i half expected it to be mediocre at best. The trigger is crisp, and light. the finish looks pretty good, no FTE or FTF. I couldnt be happier! Now to find some cheap ammo to feed it, and ill be set!

Do you plan to just use open sights or get an optic?

I have a cheap red dot reticle on order, but im not sure if i will like it being so far forward. I would eventually add a magnifier to it for longer distance.

My Romanian AK 74



Fun gun to shoot.

Pretty accurate - not as accurate as my AR 15 M4

 :salute:
Lots of hammer fired guns.
A few striker fired
