I had a wasr and after 3 years of trying to warm up to it I finally gave up and sold it. just never liked it. I ended up with one that had canted sights and loose magwell so it wouldn't take steel magazines.
also, despite what the media may list them as, AK47 clones and AR15s are not assault rifles, they are semi automatic rifles that are not select fire and therefore can not be labeled as such. it's just a label that makes every person that owns one look like a hillbilly or extremist and many shooters here despise the terminology so please, just call them black rifles
