Just wanted to show everyone my latest. I just developed an interest in the AK family but, decided to buy an entry level variant before building one. I have to say, the more I shoot it the more I love it. I have put about 400 rounds through it so far with no malfunctions. The front sight post was canted slightly to the left. With a vice and channel locks I fixed it. It's more accurate than I expected. My only complaint is that the front sight post is very wide. Any ideas on where to get a narrower sight post? I'm still deciding if I want to take on building one from a kit.

Where did you pick that up at? Looks decent.

I always thought the STGs looked really nice, and I've never heard a bad thing about it from a buddy who has one. However, I think that 10-round magazine makes it look pretty lame. SKSesque

They are good rifles and essentially WASR-10's with different furniture.

I bought it through JK Supply. You're right. It would look much better with a 30 rounder. The mags fit pretty tight and it shoots great.

Here's the story about the STG-2000C: http://www.ioinc.us/gunsandammoart.pdf
Some places are now selling the IO STG2000 for over $700.
InterOrdinance put the US-made STG style furniture & birdcage flash hider on to a Romanian WASR-10, to replicate the East German Weiger STG-940. I bought a set of the furniture off IO a while back, as I like the look of STG. Thanks for posting the photos, it gives me a preview of what my STG build will look like, as I need a push to get started on it.

Picking mine up on Monday, whoohoo!

Mine will be a featureless "build". Just need to get a new muzzlebreak for it.
Its 1/2x28mm threaded, right?

If it's an AK, it's 14x1mm Left hand thread.

I saw one at a Texas gun show a few months back for $350.

Ive always been curious about them cause I like they way they look. I read some where that they werent that great so it sorta steered me away. Let us know how it treats ya, a first person review is much better then second hand info.

Thanks for the suggestion. I filed the front post. It was easier than I expected. Last trip out, I was able to keep 100 yard shots in a 8" shoot n see. But the front post was as wide as the target. I should do better with a thinner sight post.

On the STG 2000C's the barrel is threaded for AR type muzzle devices. 1/2x28mm right hand thread. It's also removable and not welded on like other Romanian imported rifles. I can't believe the price jump on these rifles. They're just Romanian WASR's with US made furniture and a different front sight.

Are you sure about that? You can cheaply purchase birdcage flash hiders threaded in 14x1mmLH. The STG2000C has a regular 7.62mm barrel profile: http://www.copesdistributing.net/product_info.php?cPath=32_34&products_id=414

I'm also concerned that the 7.62x39 STG 2000C has the same muzzle thread pattern as a .223 AR. If someone attached a .223 bore size muzzle device, the consequences could be catastrophic.

But since the WASR-10 from which it's based comes with a 14x1mm LH thread, I wonder why IO would have ordered the rifle from Cugir with 1/2x28 thread, or rethread them at their facility in NC. Seems like extra work for no gain, since the birdcage is available in 14x1LH for such a dirt cheap price anyway.

Maybe one of the owners in this thread could confirm that with their 7.62x39 versions. WASR rifles are imported with no muzzle threading. I think Interordnance then puts the US parts on, opens the magwell to accept double stack high cap mags, and then threads the muzzle. I think the "krinkov" type front sight/gas block combo is from the factory.

so according to the site, it says the barrel is 16.25 inches - is that without a muzzle device?

I ask because I'll be running mine featureless with a MMG and the current MB that's on it is, well...askew and so I'll be running without it on until I get a new MB.

That's without a brake. All AKs have a barrel length of 16.3".

Your brake is askew like this?

The slant muzzle brake fitted does slant to the right. That's how they are designed to be. There is a notch on the neck of MB, which is suppose to lock into the sprung pin at the base of your front sight post.

no. I know what slant MB is. The one I have is from AK concepts. I knew it was askewed when I bought the rifle from member here. Just wanted to know if barrel was >16" so I could run without MB until get replacement.
thanks for your input and confirming the barrel length.

Oh, to the OP - didnt mean to hijack your thread (maybe I'll start another)

I not an AK guy, but I do like the looks of it. I just might have to add one to my collection....
