Full auto. Yes, a real consideration for LARPing.

Heh.  It would be nice to be in a place where that's an issue. :P  Otherwise, I'm totally fine with button-cut nitrided barrels. ;)

You might need them to oust the Gauleitnors soon.

Heavens know why they did not decide on a classic pistol grip, either M70 plastic or M76 wooden one...

Enjoy!  How's the ammo supply in your area?

Presumably that part could be replaced with a different one if desired? The furniture is supposedly American Walnut, but the manual mentions that it's usually Elm. The handguard does seem a bit longer than other AK flavors.

Not so great. Might have to check online.

I don't even remember the last time I bought ammo locally. Partly due to all my guns are surplus and local ammo isn't available, and also because I reload all own.

I have always had good experiences with SGAmmo. 10k rounds of ammo or so by now.

Ordered some of the Croatian steel mags to go along with the rifle. They seem to be well made and lock in securely. Reading reviews of these, apparently some of the initial batches had fitment issues in some AK's, and a file was required to take off a bit of metal.

 

The bottom is marked "MADE IN CROATIA" along with what looks like a Canadian maple leaf symbol. My understanding is that this is supposed to be an oak leaf, which is somehow connected to Croatia.

People are still buying ammo like it's TP?

Btw, the TP, flour and noodles craziness is over. I saw a big pile of unmarked TP in my supermarket and on the way out I walked past a pile three times bigger.

Apparently (at least here in the US) meat is the next "panic buy" item.

I haven't been to a LGS in months so I don't know what the ammo supply looks like. If I need ammo I buy online from SGAmmo and others, or buy components to roll my own online (Nosler Shooters Pro shop *bullets, Powder Valley *cases, NOE *molds) The vendors did have a rush a month ago, but availability seemed reliable.

Now you only need Bosnian made optic with Slovenian made glass and Macedonian made sling in order to recreate Yugoslavia. :D

Maybe if I just put a Yugoslavian flag decal on the buttstock? :D

I'd also suggest some 20rd mags.  They are far more compact handier than the 30rd 'nanner clips, especially prone or from a rest.

IIRC only good ones are Hungarian made and pretty rare.

Prone, with AK you can freely use mag as a monopod.

Like printer ink, ammo costs did it for me... a nice 300 blackout AR pistol collects dust because ammunition is silly expensive, so a Romanian Draco with arm brace will do until I start seeing Tula 300 blackout in the wild.
