AK & Variants Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

I think beta

Tactical AKs are fine, but no me gusta magpul.

 

Then, again, for your own sake (honestly) you might not want to read this thread. If a bit of magpul irks you to such an extent, you really don't want to see my AK (or various others that are floating around) and I haven't posted that monster up for a while so it's due another showing.

 

In all seriousness kudo's aznriptide looks much nicer than the beta-p ak's.

 

I do like the BP handguard setup but they really should've gone the whole hog with a better optics mount and put the Krebs fire controls on there to improve the efficiency of manipulation; which is one of the primary reasons I really like azn's build. I've been swaying between the BP and the CA Krebs for a long time I have to say and the CA is winning overall. I don't like the standard length RIS on it too much, but I think it'd be a lot easier to change that and possibly install a left-side cocking handle, compared to getting that top rail and the reload plate/mag catch on to the beta.

Avenger while you are entitled to your own opinion and have every right to share that opinion, how you choose to share that opinion needs to be lest hostile. You can just say that you hate non-traditional AKs or whatever WITHOUT attacking other members personally. There's no need for name calling here; we're not on a playground. You have already been warned once, next time will be a suspension.

 

 

 

 

Azn I really like the RMR on there. (BTW I thought you didn't like my mag-k with my eMRDS, have you been converted? :P ) I think the lower profile sight goes perfectly with the compactness of the rifle. Really well done!

Anyone seen/used the CAA AK mag catch extension?

 

They're available on uktactical, I'm intrigued as to how they attach. They look to me like they just clamp on with a pair of grub screws.

I didn't like the MRDS because it's ###### lol. Also because, weirdly enough, it's too high.

 

Leon I tried putting my M300 ScoutLight on there...but the stupid GearSector mount didn't fit. I'll have to get a HSP Thorntail SBR later to put it on.

Question for Avenger:

 

Why do you hate Magpul? I despise the company for some irrational reason I don't even understand BUT they generally make good stuff. I own some of the RS equipment and I hate to say it but it works. Just curious, no smart-alecky stuff intended at all.

 

As for the sight...KOBRA!!!!!!:-)

On Magpul, it just doesn't belong on an AK. You don't put a SUSAT on an M16, or an ACOG on an M11, or Magpul on an AK. Magpul is at home with Armalites. I'm not as upset about this as I seem to have given the impression...

 

Disclaimer: As many will see tomorrow in the bullpup thread I shall start, I use mag pulls on my TAR-21. They look good there.

Yes, magpul clearly doesn't belong on an AK because an AR15 doesn't have the proper mount for an outdated scope. Your brilliant logic has caused me to see the error of my ways and burn the magpul off of my AKs with the people's cleansing flame of socialist justice.

 

I'll follow Darklite's example, old picture because I don't have a current one, but the same amount of magpul;

The joke is that it still has more magpul than my SR15.

 

Also, if anyone is looking for something like an AK magwell, Solar Tactical recently released the AK MFER. The internet says that Haley likes it, so I'll be buying one like the sheep I am.

That is a nice idea, very simple to mount as well.

 

Anyone know what's going on with this?

It seems like a very odd shape for a mag release, looks like you thumb would just slide right off that thing in even slightly adverse conditions (rain/mud etc), doesn't look much good for trigger finger manipulation or the old release-empty-mag-using-full-mag drill. Not sure what's the idea with the plate that's bolted around bottom of the trigger guard either.

I think it's a button that you press upwards, a la F2000, which actuates the normal mag release paddle. Could be useful, but I'd prefer something like this: http://www.ebairsoft.com/ak47-polymer-magazine-release-extension-p-6061.html

That's mostly because susats are horrible and don't come in 20mm, and the acog M11 thing well that actually sounds like fun...

 

The point in magpulled AKs is to ad functionality you'd only get on an AR normally, and this being airsoft its not like it can get you killed if it doesn't work...

It is not life-and-death in airsoft so whatever functionality added is not significant anyway.

 

And in airsoft internals are mostly same between AK and M4; if AK does not work for someone...why AK in first place?

I think its a shroud to make it California legal, kinda like the whole bullet button AR mag release.

 

Something to do with in their law the magazines only being allowed to be removed with some sort of tool.

 

Oh wow, really? That's pretty silly. o_o

To be honest, this is airsoft at the end of the day, so If someone likes his AK magpulized because he likes it, lets let him be, If it works, more power to him. Again, airsoft is mostily playing with guns/gear we find "visually appealing".

 

That at least, is my way of thinking, although I have to admit AZN AK looks great :lol: and I would do the same to classic guns like... a Tommy gun

I am not saying anyone is vastly inferior as person for owning weird AK.

 

I am just saying it does not make sense to me to get all accesories made for AR15(and probably cost more than base gun) and put them onto AK. I am pretty sure even FSB do not go full-magpull.

I like this: "The lock requires zero modifications to the weapon for installation and can be removed when out of state"

 

I don't like this: "This MAGAZINE LOCK is made to conform to the DOJ criteria but has not been approved"

I don't think they approve specific devices, it's your responsibility to conform to the convoluted regulations and cross your fingers.

 

In our great state, a detachable rifle magazine is fine if the grip does not protrude conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon, so if you don't want to deal with the bullet button foolishness you can get a Saiga rifle, M1A, or some other non dangerous-looking gun.
