Damn AK bug bit me years ago and now every closet in the house looks like an armed cell of Al Queda

Oh and the wooden end is the safe side Tongue

Mine doesn't have a wooden end. It's a metal end or plastic end lol

Okay then, the metal end is the dangerous end (unless you have an underfolder then all bets are off)

Mine is a Polish underfolder. I'll check to make sure the correct metal end is pointed downrange. Confused

when you get the sudden urge to go bump firing, rememebr , that foreguard heats up in a hurry.

Get as many magazines as you can afford. If you have empty ones hanging around, put on a good movie and load them while you watch the movie. Red Dawn is a good movie to have on while loading AK mags. My personal favorite is Battle: Los Angeles.

Got to finally shoot it two days ago. I put up a target at 50 yards and fired three rounds then took a look. I was floored. All 3 were dead center. I was so pleased I went to 100 yards. Not quite the same result. :-) Actually, after about 1 mag, I was able to put everything within 10 inches. It was a lot of fun to shoot and the under-folder wasn't in the least bit uncomfortable and no black & blue on my shoulder today. A guy at the range my age, 60+, has shot most of the various nationalities. He had not seen the Polish version which I have. He was impressed by the smooth action and quality of the build.

After my AR, I'd rank this as second favorite rifle to shoot. Now, I need to practice my bump firing. :-)

A few observations:
  • They're a big hit with shooters lacking the stigma of AKs.
  • Girls like 'em too, you might need a second or third one if you have a GF or SO.
  • They...multiply.
