Default wasr-10 ak47 furniture??

Im going to change up the furniture on my wasr-10. I wanna give it that dark earth or desert sand tactical look. But Also want some other ideas of what I could do to it. Anyone of your guys fixed up the furniture on your wasr-10? I need some good ideas. I don't know if i want a collapsible stock or folding stock. What type stock do you guys prefer? Also wheres a good place in Louisville to get wasr furniture or sites that sale them. I like tapcos but on there site there stuff is only all black that i seen. Good rep for good inputs. Thanks guys.

I think it looks pretty sick, not a bad price ether. Do they make it in any other color then black?

Personally I think Tapco furniture looks like crap.
I like AK's to look like AK's and not like AR's.
The WASR's that I had, I refinished the wood myself and they turned out great.
Just my opinion.

not a fan of anything tapco or ati, it pretty much cheaps up any gun its thrown on and usually looks like it doesnt belong but thats just my opinion. I agree with the above post an AK isnt an AR.

I like the traditional look as well, but do have one WASR that I "Stikeforced!!!"

I like it. Added a UTG quad rail in place of the polymer fore end/front hand guard. I've posted pics before, but it's been awhile...let me see...

The folding piece isn't that attractive, but I don't mind it.

No Sir, it locks up very tight. Has a solid feel to it. I really do like it. And it gets lots of "hey can I see that's" at the range.

It's just different looking. Wasn't trying to make it look like an AR, just wanted to dress up my WASR a bit I guess.

todd, you a funny fella tonight!!

Yeah, ABomb, I like the adjustability. The folding piece adds a good inch to the overall length I'd say. Thereabouts anyway. Not for everyone.

I do wish someone would make a longer wood stock for the AK's.

I guess Ivan has short T-Rex arms.

Honestly, I like that grip better than any other grip I have on a firearm. It is thick, and as you can see has finger grooves. I don't have the largest hands in the world, but find it comfortable. It may be too big if a person had small hands. It has some diameter to it.

I would like to eventually get another one of the grips for my Saiga 12 project. It was the first grip I thought of when selecting parts. But, the place I ordered my parts from didn't sell it, so I just went with a Hogue AK grip.

own/have owned many WASRs, never had an issue. Just wanted to make sure your post does not turn others off to them. Not sure what you mean by "bolt locks up.."

care to elaborate or provide pics?

Nothing wrong with a WASR AK. Nothing from my experience over the years.

Again, please elaborate? I assume that you mean it gets stuck toward the rear of the receiver after ejection?? Not sure, especially about putting one in the chamber.

Sorry you are having issues with yours, but other than slightly canted front sight posts and slightly oversized magwells, never had an issue with a WASR.

I don't know that I'd trust a fellar who didn't think that this WASR was B.A.

I like wood too, but that there is an evil black rifle that you can actually feel a little recoil from!!! J/k....I like AR's too. But see nothing wrong with having a black AK. Too each his/her own. I love my WASRs. Would not trade one for a high dollar AR any day of the week.

Good site for those interested in buying nice replacement wood furniture for an AK.

Have seen a set in person, and it is worth the price. Very beautiful wood.

Please take no offense at my comments. I just LOVE the AK style rifle. If anyone is having issues with one, trust me, they can be easily resolved. The Romanian WASR gets a bad rap all over the internet. Just want to make sure that KFA presents a fair and balanced picture of their performance. I've never had an issue out of one, and I have shot many.
If anyone has an issue with one not working properly, please discuss it here so we can offer advice. If not stil under importer warranty, Guncranck1 can fix you right up I'm sure.

AK's are not for everyone. With that said, if someone said they'd buy me any $500 or less rifle as a gift, I'd choose a WASR AK. I call them bullet hoses, cause they spray thousands of rounds without issue when working properly.

Read it again, still not sure what your rifle's issue is. Please elaborate. I guarantee it can be fixed easily and/or cheaply. Is that a word?? Sure it is.

Sorry you are having an issue, I know from experience the dissatisfaction of having a firearm not work properly. Good news is, 99.9% of the time a minor adjustment will remedy the issue.

So, you have an empty AK. You load a 30 round mag into it, pull the bolt back and release...........what happens?

Failure to feed round from mag into chamber?

does the round leave the mag? or does the bolt hang up on the round still in the mag?

Just trying to help/understand.

follow up question,
are you using polymer magazines?

Not knocking them, but anytime I hear someone having an issue with an AK, 9 times out of 10, they are using polymer mags. I have a few, that I came by in trade, and they work just fine. But, as stated, the majority of the time an AK owner is experiencing an issue, polymer mags are being used.

Take the cover off the top and see if anything has been rubbing the cover from the inside. Try cyclying the action (WITH THE GUN EMPTY!) to see if the spring may be comming up to high.


Also, like the Washmaster said "try another mag"
