Well after cleaning up my "Russian Red" Century "Certified" AK47 Carbine In 7.62x39mm from Henderson Defense I decided to take her for a quick trip to the range along with my AR-15 with the 7.62x39 upper on it. Man that AK was fun to shoot but it will take some getting use to. I'm not use to such a small butt stock making it hard to aim and I wasn't expecting so much recoil from it.
Then I took out the AR-15 with the 7.62x36 upper and what a difference, less recoil and with the red dot site easier to aim although my batteries where almost dead. over all I extremely happy with it.

I'm not a great shoot but I love doing it though.

Nice looking wood.

How is the overall quality of the HD WASR? Solid? Mag wobble? Did it come with the muzzle break?

It seems very solid, very little mag wobble but still felt Very secure and the removable muzzle break came with it. I didn't realize how easy the muzzle break was to put on and off. There's just a little button you press and twist it off. I wish AR's were like that.

If you have the Warsaw length buttstock, switch out to a Nato Length stock, that stock might be better for you. Its a lil bit longer.

Yeah, just got my AR upper. Thought you could unscrew it like an AK. Doesn't seem like it.
