Default Show Off Your AK Variant Rifles Thread

Ive seen threads here dedicated to M4 SOPMODs, MK12s, SCARs, etc etc, but not any for AK47-74/AKM/Saigas here yet. So i want to start one.
Although I love AR15s, I feel like AKs dont get the attention and respect that they deserve. So lets change that right now.
Lets see those sexy AK rifles.

Ill go first. We got a C39V2 back in November. It has since been heavily modified.
Heres what it looked like out of the box.


First upgrade was a MI short handguard.


Next I added a sling, Surefire 308 muzzle brake (with a 14x1 LH to 5/8x28 adapter, long story behind why I did that), Magpul RVG, a Fenix PD35tac with picatinny mount and pressure switch, and LaRue index clips for the handguard (which are amazing by the way, especially for tucking the pressure switch wire into to avoid snagging).
On the inside, I swapped the recoil spring for a 1960 Polish original milled recoil spring. Im still looking for a 1960 Polish bolt carrier group to swap as well, which is a must have upgrade for the C39v2. I know what youre thinking, with all the money I spent on upgrades, I could have bought an Arsenal. But this is what I could get my hands on at the time, and I really have nothing bad to say about this rifle. Some people feel differently about Century products, but in all honesty, this thing is more accurate than my AR on some days.




I am trying to get my hands on a DDI or DAKM by January 1st, I absolutely love the reviews they have gotten. So if anyone is looking to sell one, hit me up!

Show us your AKs!

I'm thinking the OP hasn't found the Semiauto Rifles Gallery yet?

Plenty AK pics posted in these two threads-

If you're willing to drop the vertical fore grip you can make that guy featureless with just a grip wrap. No more AK bb/ mag release nonsense.


Also shame on you for not using your rifle stand

I did too, I don't like all the nonsensical tacticool pic rails on the forward grips/gastube. Don't like the vertical grip either, I like my AK's classic, no offense op.

Depends. Last I checked the price for c39v2 has gone up due to uncertainty of future restrictions.

None taken. The main advantage of keeping it plain is way less weight and easier to maneuver. However, this is my designated home defense battle rifle, hence the need for a bright *** weaponlight and foregrip for close quarter turns. It is rather heavy now, but its manageable.

Any wobble on the dust cover? That was my main hesitation of getting one.

It does but very little. I haven't noticed a shift in my zero while shooting. Would I use it for a DMR setup? No. But for a short-intermediate range setup I am satisfied.

It is chambered in 7.62x54r.

My NY compliant AK pattern rifles, left to right.

Yugo M70B1 with Ace AK to AR grip adapter (p/n A602) and AR-15 receiver spur (modified to fit adapter), tip of muzzle brake and bayonet lug cut off.

VEPR in 7.62x54r with 8x42 POSP scope.

VEPR in 5.45x39.

( VEPR thumbhole stocks are made NY compliant with a block of wood fixed in place with nail and/or screw and 5 minute epoxy, then coated with JB Weld on both sides, then covered in leather.)

OP does not believe in the gallery sub forum, he also wants to combine AK and "GF with guns" threads..... or, even make Girls with AK's sub form section.

OP, cool rifle......shows more of the house with AK and a girl.

Milled receiever reminds me of the vz58.and the clean,magpul furniture goes great. Also reminiscent of a thumb holed vz58.

After that picture, I think we need a thread entitled "Rifle Stands" or "Rifles and Racks".

Are you high or stupid? That is like trading a Ferrari for Fiero. Convert the Saiga and have a real russian AK.

Have several 5.45 Saiga's that have 1,300 + rounds (mostly Hornady). No bullet guide, mag catch mod or anything... All (E German) bakelite and plastic Tula/Izhevsk mags have been 100% reliable from the start.

While I appreciate the input, commercial 223. guns don't use a milspec 5.56 mag or trunnion. So you can't use them with out modding the gun. Second 5.45 guns only need a bullet guide to be up to mispec and work 100%. Running it semi auto it may work with out one. Also 5.45 siagas will also just take milspec mag. 7.62 and .223 don't with out mods.
