That stock on suck a short gun is all kinds of wrong. But why the hell does a 7.62 M43 gun have a 5.45 mag? I do seem to recall 7.62 mags being made that looked like the 5.45 ones though, but I'm not sure.
IMO, handgaurd rails on the ak are shitty, the only kosher way to do rails on an AK is dustcover mounted and i mean this [img]http://cdn5.thefirearmsblog.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/2654020-tfb.jpg[/img] not this [img]http://dpharms.com/images/beryl%20white.JPG[/img] [tab]lol cal gun[/tab]

[QUOTE=DarkSamus;26274947]I [img_thumb]http://dpharms.com/images/beryl%20white.JPG[/img_thumb][/QUOTE] why would they put rails on the cover WHEN THERE IS A SIDE MOUNT RIGHT THERE JUST FOR A RAIL???????
[QUOTE=Stupideye;26275075]why would they put rails on the cover WHEN THERE IS A SIDE MOUNT RIGHT THERE JUST FOR A RAIL???????[/QUOTE] The truth right here.
[QUOTE=wewt!;26274223]In all seriousness, I'm sure Sweetie was referring to the AK 47 as a symbol in history.[/QUOTE] Or she's like me who thinks that more than half this forum are AK Lovers, and don't accept other weapons as they are, (i.e. M4, M14, M16, etc).

Every AK I've used (including the AKS-74U that flips open) has had some sort of wobble when it comes to the bolt cover. This is bad for keeping your optics zeroed, especially magnifying optics.

Aside from the oldschool side mount, this is probably the best way to mount optics to an AK, providing they're modern picatinny mounting. Gas tube mounting (IE, tapco style handguards) aren't good for real weapons due to heat issues (warping plastic) unless you have something like an ultimak rail, which are really nice, but personally I'm not a fan of scout style forward mounting. Edit - Forgot to mention the SVD style dust cover latch, which should be MUCH more solid than the old style push button.

If you absolutely have to have an optic there, i would much rather use a side mounted rail that has a weaver rail on top.
mounts are for the weak real men use tape [editline]asd[/editline] [img]http://img547.imageshack.us/img547/1537/img0444q.jpg[/img]
Mounts are for people who want something to stay on their gun for longer than 5 minutes of abuse.
i know that goddamp i was just jokin around

[QUOTE=DarkSamus;26286723][img_thumb]http://i.imgur.com/wb5xc.jpg[/img_thumb] lol[/QUOTE] IMO, I approve of that. If your going to rail out an AK, I think you should go all the way with something like that.
[QUOTE=DarkSamus;26286723][img_thumb]http://i.imgur.com/wb5xc.jpg[/img_thumb] lol[/QUOTE] The worst thing about this is that it's an AK, the body doesn't look that great with the rest of that stuff. That optic mount on the front is pretty nice though.
[QUOTE=FPKawaii;26287711]IMO, I approve of that. If your going to rail out an AK, I think you should go all the way with something like that.[/QUOTE] I agree. I'm an AK purist at heart, but this is certainly one of the best attempts at modernising the AK for multi-mission requirements. Not to mention the controls are all ambidextrous. Even though I LOVE AK's, the controls on them suck compared to an AR or more modern rifles.

Honestly, AKs aren't great guns by today's standards. People here need to start to understand that they won't be around forever, and even though their beautiful guns, we need to start thinking of other guns than it.
[QUOTE=DarkSamus;26286723][img_thumb]http://i.imgur.com/wb5xc.jpg[/img_thumb] lol[/QUOTE] Tempting. Might try to build one up next year if I have the money. Looks like this JG would be the place to start. Add a M4 stock adapter, cut down the barrel and rethread the barrel, change the grip, paint it tan, add accesories then it's done.

There's also an MP5 looking charging handle on the other side if I remember correctly, but it really shouldn't be too hard to cut out a bit of the cover and make a little bit that connects an MP5 charging handle to the bolt.
I still don't see the need to use a plastic magazine as opposed to the regular magazines

Could actually be sort of useful

It may look a little bit retarded, and the sight thing is kinda redundant (IIRC, he doesn't actually run it like that) but that thing scares the shit out of people- rightfully so, with the amount of BB's it puts out.
