I love mine its been very reliable so far no issues at all and I have fired about 500 rounds through it. Accuracy is decent enough for me. Rifle is accurate but I'm not :D:D:D. My opinion is its a good rifle and you won't regret getting one. Also check turners to see if they have any in stock if your in so.Cal.

It's a good AK type rifle for under $700.

Check your local gun stores, they may have a CA legal version in stock at a comparable price.

Interesting adjustable stock, it really limits recoil. Never seen that one, but of course I'm a newbie to Ak stuff.

Normally comes with a solid polymer stock.

In the video... They are using a $400 Bumpfire slidefire stock, which is illegal in CA (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=527201).

It is a dressed up Wasr (not a bad thing per se)

I would also check local gun stores. Turners, Ammo Bro and places like that.

It's more of a Draco made into a rifle, than a WASR.

Outside of being romanian and using a GB sight what does this have in common with a DRACO?

It is the same WASR receiver, gas system and barrel, which are all different on the Draco.

No, DRACOs are not cut down WASRs either.

This is how internet misinformation is born....

It's a good quality gun for the price. Mine has straight sights, almost zero mag wobble and a decent finish. Plus there all new parts. It arrived sighted somehow right out of the box and has never had a hiccup. My AR is getting left home.

Nope.

The Draco is a semi-auto only pistol version of the AIMR, which is a select-fire carbine that is in use by the Romanian Military & Police, and the WASR is a semi-auto rifle version of the MD-63 (clone of the Izhmash AKM).

In simple terms... AIMR = Draco with forward vertical grip, folding stock and full-auto.

The M10-762 uses a different barrel than the WASR.

How is that dif from a WASR barrel outside of the obvious cosmetic differences?

The price difference between a WASR double stack and the M10-762 is about $50.

For the extra money you get new furniture and new parts vs. the WASR's beat up wood furniture and questionable reputation.

Which one do you think entry level AK buyers will choose? So far the reviews for it has also been good which helps it even more over the WASR.

I was going to get this one but I want a rail for a scope. :D

For 50 dollars more you get a heavy and probably the worst rail system for an AK. Inferior sight radius as well as the lack of options for muzzle devices.

Id recomend a .22 for a first time gun owner, the AK is a powerful platform. If you feel the need to get the AK do yourself and the others around you a favor and learn the rifle inside and out before you buy.

I got a 30.06, two shotguns, a 10/22, mosin nagant, 9 mm, and a 45, so I'm a pretty experienced gun owner but now I have thinking to get a ak or ar

Mr. Plink hates this gun so much he has to spread FUD about it.

The muzzle thread is 14x1LH same as a WASR and same as most any other AK.

YOu can put just about anything you want that is out there for an AK. You can even use a barrel thread adapter to use an authentic AK74 brake that is theaded 24x1.

Mine has a JTac brake on it. You can index it with a crush washer or plumber's tape or both.
