Posted this a couple of times already, you're probably getting tired of seeing it... hope to have some better pics soon. I shot a decent group (10 of 11 in 2-1/2" at 100 yards) with it over the weekend using iron sights, Tula ammo and tired old eyes. ;)

This AK was manufactured by Lancaster Arms (milled receiver and Tapco G2 trigger group), and I switched out the furniture for replacements by Tapco and Hogue. The collapsible Tapco stock and butt pad as well as the Hogue finger grooves make this rifle much more comfortable to shoot than the stock cherry furniture (as pretty as it was), and once I got the stock and grip I just wanted to finish it in all black.

Arsenal SGL21 - MI Rail, VLTOR stock adapter w/ MOE stock, after this pic I replaced the stock grip with a Battlegrip... way nicer. Also stuck the vertical foregrip that came with my DD. The vertical grip actually works quite well on the AK... I prefer the AFG on the AR.

Waiting on another bunch of Saiga imports and I'll have AK #3.
Still not enough...

BTW, I have ventilated gastubes in the merch section if any AK people are interested.

I've got a wasr-10;its more accurate the my ar and my kel-tec su-16 bravo. And that's just with iron sites. I've got a tapco saw kit on it. (saw for grip and pistol grip with a 6 position colabsible stock) I love it reliable as hell. Never jammed or miss fired. And I've dunked it in a lake and came out shooting. Dropped it in a mud hole then killed a squirrel at about 15yds. :cool:

The Polish Archer is generally considered to be a 1 MOA gun. Most ARs perform similarly. Here's Sturm's test of the Archer (incorrectly marketed as a Beryl):

I'll add a photo to the mix; here's my Krebs AK 103K:

Ridge Runner 5,
That looks Awesome! I have a parts kit and I want to build one too. Did you do it yourself or have a gunsmith do it?

Here's my AES-10B RPK 1989 make, with a Romy G pistol grip, drum mag and RPK-style flash hider. Since this pic, it's got the appropriate orange Bakelite rear pistol grip.

This thing with the heavy barrel is way accurate. I haven't put it cohesively on paper yet, but I can can comfortable make gong-sized hits at 300 yards with irons.

I actually bought it from a guy on a local forum, who had bought it already completed the day before from another guy on the same board.

It is a Century build, but it fires great.

I recently picked up this MAK 90 from a guy at work for $300. He said it has been sitting in his closet for about 12 years, which was the last time he fired it. We took it to the range and it didnt skip a beat.

Mine is milled as well, too bad to didnt say anything about the dark finish earlier, we could have worked something out.:p I just modified the thumbhole stock and refinished everything with a different color. The stock isnt perfect, but then again its only temporary until I can order one from Ironwood Designs.
