The completed pistol:
I replaced the 10/30 with an old Chinese 10 rounder. Oversize 10 rounders are
IMO. Not to mention they do not come apart for cleaning. Ever.
I was advised these rifles do not liek to run with plastic mags- or at least the Tapco ones. I may have an Arsenal 10 rounder lying around I can test in the future though.
For those owners who didn't notice- the front sight has an optional flip up/flip down white dot unit. Flip it down to expose the standard AK front post.
