Bought this gun yesterday brand new. I figured I've have several misfires or jams until I broke it in. I thought that I would have a much harder trigger pull until I broke it in. But, the trigger pull is amazing. we fired over 200 rounds through it today and only jammed once somewhere around round number 184. After firing it, two other guys at the range decided to put it on their shopping list. Love it so far. Admittedly, one day is not enough to pass judgement.
I got the chance to play with this today. Definitely want one. It's really a bumpfire, but it doesn't feel like it when you're firing. They're a bit pricey, but definitely worth it. I looked on the web page when I got home, and couldn't find one for the AK platform.
Manufacturers suggested retail price is $99, I paid $104 plus tax at Cabela's. But, I didn't have to pay for shipping or wait for it to come in the mail.
I wasn't planning to have to drill holes, but it is required with this kit.
Getting the gas tube cover on was not easy at all. The screws in the Picatinny rail on the gas tube were a little too long and push the rail and slightly crooked. I have to lower my front sight post. Where it is now is shooting very, very low. But, the problem is, with my range selector set at 100m the picatinny rail is obstructing my view. So, I will have to remove the top rail.
The 6 position folding stock does make it a few inches shorter for easier transport. But, I have to have the stock all the way on the first position in order to reach everything. Even on the first position, the stock is longer than the original wooden stock.
I had a blast shooting this weapon. For a good shooting weapon I would recommend it. But, for a tactical weapon, I would not recommend it.
It is what it is. I got this little guy from my Granddaddy. It was in his trouser pocket when he passed away (of natural causes). Mine is an older model. I've fired a few hundred rounds out of it. It's surprisingly accurate. Fits just about anywhere. I'm not into revolvers at all. But, this little guy will be passed down to the next generation of little killingemo's.
In 2005, I was in the market for a reliable side arm. I went to Gander Mountain and was trying out several different weapons. In the Marine Corps, my side arm was a M9 Beretta 9mm. from experience, I felt I needed a larger round than a 9mm, but still wanted a large capacity magazine. I narrowed it down to a choice between the 2nd and 3rd generation Glock 22. I am cursed with small hands and the 3rd generations finger grooves did not feel comfortable to me. The 2nd generation felt much better, but felt a little slippery in my hand. But, the 2nd generation had an adjustable rubber finger grooved add on. After putting that on, I made my choice and got the 2nd generation Glock 22 .40 S&W for $450 with 2 10 round magazines and 2 15 round magazines.
The very first time I fired my new to me weapon, the rear dovetail site popped off. I took it back to Gander Mountain and they told me that the site itself had been recalled for this very reason and replaced my site for free with an adjustable site. After that, I went back to the range and had a great time. For almost 2 years, I was putting at least 100 rounds a week through it. I never once had a failure. This firearm has become a part of me. I recently held a Glock 22 4th Generation, and it felt extremely comfortable as well. I almost decided to sell the 2nd gen to get the 3rd gen. But, I just couldn't bring myself to get rid of it. So, the 4th gen will have to wait. I'll be with my Glock 22 .40 cal 2nd gen until life leaves my body.
