    Hey everyone this thread pretty much answers the question I was going to ask, but sense ak’s here in my neck of the woods are hard to find and cost more than an ar I think I will just sell my ras and hope someday more ak’s come around and don’t cost a lot, I know I can buy one online but after shipping and other fees it will cost more than my ras, thanks for the help!

    Yeah, well, after shipping and other fees a box of Godiva Belgian chocolates will cost more than a box of dog shit. You get what you pay for.





    Looking at the Marketplace forums here and at AK Files, recently I have been seeing a lot of Romanian WASR and SAR-1 rifles at reasonable prices. If I were looking for an available and affordable AK that isn't the firearms version of a bunch of turds floating around in an unflushed toilet bowl, that's where I would start.

    Thinking I would replace as much of the US parts on the rifle as possible.
    I have an ras with 500 rounds no issues. I thought about changing to a polish BCG for $120 as well. Everyone shits on this rifle, but I’ve had no issues thus far. It was my first AKM and it was cheap, I don’t regret it. Granted, I am going to upgrade soon and I probably wouldn’t want to put more than 1500-2000 rounds through this rifle, but for $500 it’s fine for what it is. My trunnion looks perfect, but I can see the beginnings of deformation on the tail of the bolt carrier and an few other spots on the carrier. Bolt and trunnion are 100% still. I don’t think it’s worth upgrading the BCG, just be easy in the rifle and then sell it when you’re ready to upgrade.

    Never put good combloc parts in a RAS. Run it until the headspace gets too loose or sell it now. If someone does have a bolt for sale I need one badly-not American. Change carrier=no headspace check needed but not a bad idea. Change bolt=damn sure better check headspace.

    I know, I know. It’s the worst ak out there aside from IO. I’d say don’t gun shame me, but then I’d feel like a libtard. At least every ak I get from here on out will be a significant upgrade.

    Keep an eye out at local gun shops, sooner or later one will show up.

    The forum folks have good rifles for sale once in a while also.

    WASR time.

    And of course it's gonna be more than a RAS, because it is more than a RAS. It's a proper eastern-bloc AK.

    Very clever, but don’t worry I’m working on stepping up to a Romanian now.
