Looking for thoughts or opinions on lancaster arms Ak rifle model 3060 , i think
thats the part number. I am possibly going to buy this weekend from Ammo Bros. Any thoughts or opinions on them aswell.

I'm also thinking of buying a Russian AK sniper scope later,its the one that mounts to the side ,if equipped with the scope mount.Would like to hear thoughts on this aswell . Like is it any good ,accuracy, quality.

Any input would be great . thanks

Lancasters are pretty good AK's, they have chrome lined barrels so thats better than some of the cheap ones.

I have one in black. I love it. It wasn't the cheapest AK, but in my opinion it was worth it.

Just FYI: your Lancaster may not come with a side rail. Mine doesn't have one.

Whoa, you are lucky I almost bought that rifle today. It looked really cool but I couldn't take the $600 hit. It was my first time there today and I really like that shop. It's the best one I have been to in the area.

Lancasters are sweet rifles, you can send it back to Lancaster and they will install one for around 35$. I know FEDUP had some AK's for sale some thing about an ex wife. Contact him,it would be cool to keep the money in the CGF family.

ya $30 buck . I called Lancaster arms and talked to one of the guys there and they said 30.00 ,and if one of the shops tried to up the price i was told to have the shop call him ,and if that was still a problem i was to call him

I've check out a few and the Lancaster is the nicest by far. I bought 2 Saigas for just a little more than the 1 Lancaster. What i've read on calguns is fedups builds are the s*** and he is an artist when it comes to the AK.

Thanks SJGunGuy
Dragon; any hihg power scope is "overkill" for an AK. Grab a Kobra or an eotech and you will be much happier.

Whats the kobra

I was gonna recomend the tru glo 2X red dot or the new Vortex that come with a 2X that screws on.

The Kobra is the Russian Military issue red dot

Anything more than a 3-4X is overkill on a 7.62X39 rifle.

I liked the idea of the Russian scope cause i have seen them for just under $200 . i know AK is not that accurate but i thought it would be cheap ,and neat. Just a thought not set on any thing yet.

Do u know the price on the Kobra?

SJgunguy24

The Vortex is around 130$ and you can pick up a cheap mount for 20$. Mine is a kalinka with a weaver rail and a PSL rail that is for my SKS. Try to get the Q.R. if you can swing it.

I don't know how to link stuff but check out Kalinkaoptics.com I know some have had issues but use them for reaserch. Some of the Russian stuff is $$$$$ do to the military import restrictions.
