Sucks that your state limits you. Hope you like it!
Three optional things:
#1 Swap out the bolt carrier/bolt (Polish version) if that wear issue concern you
#2 Buy the 30 rd mags pinned to 10 rounds or less for state compliance.
#3 Move the heck outta NY if at all possible.
Dam...that poor ak....
But I guess it's better than being without.
How, even in the wildest imagination of the liberal mind, does neutering a pistol grip lessen the lethality of a weapon? It is so absurd.
I drove 175 miles one way today to pick up a NY compliant Npap at a gun shop. Traded in the RAS and took an extra $200 hit to get the pap, but I feel MUCH better with the Npap! Pictures and post to follow! Wish I'd found the pap before I bought the RAS, but lesson learned. The Npap seems worlds better than the RAS just by fit and feel already. Gas pston is looser than on my Polish parts kit I have tucked away though.
In cadence: "I don't want no teenage gem, I just want my AKM!"
Congrats on the Npap. I love mine. Get rid of the shepard crook and get a power custom pin retainer about $5 and you are all set.
