    about to buy my first assult rifle after i shot my buddys sks. i seen a few at my local dealer but what i was wondering is. are they hard to find where the pistol grip is also wooden like the other part? cuz i can never find ones that have the pistol grip is wood also. its usually plastic of some sort. another thing if i do find it. how much should i expect to pay, whats a good price. if i remember correctly the ones i saw were around 300..depending if it had a tri-pod or not or wooden or not n so on.

    help me out here, id appreciate it. thanks rifle county ahead of time.

    Most of the cheaper ones have plastic pistol grips. In these AKs, it's also one of the 5 require U.S. made parts to keep it legal. You can swap it for a U.S. made wooden one though.

    That's what I did on my SAR1. I bought just a walnut PG from Ironwood and stained it all to match.

    Not pistols. Mine's a side folder, CDignition's is an underfolder.

    My SAR1 was right about $300. SAR1s are very hard to find anymore, but WASRs are pretty much the same and should go for around the same price. CDignition's beauty is a bit of a step up in quality and price. I believe it's an Arsenal SAS M7 IIRC.

    I highly recomend the ak I have owned mine for 9 months now picked it up
    at a local sporting goods chain for about 329.00 Romanian type assembled georgia ,Vermont. I have never owned a rifle that worked so well required so little maintenence and shot amazingly right from the first shot. I have noticed much improvement in grouping when not
    using the wolf ammo the cheap regular stuff I have yet to try the mil spec classic I hear thats ok but I have had really good results with the winchester
    7.62X39 that sells in value packs from the local wally world. I have yet to try adjusting the sights much. I got one after my brother in law got hooked on shooting again after I took him to the range this last march. I have several different rifles and the ak is the best of it's type I have purchased .
    I have a real interest in milsurplus guns. Goodluck I will say for the money you can't find anything that will touch it. I don't know about you but hard to look at the wife and say hey honey you don't mind if I blow 800.00 to 2,000.00 on an ar 15 that's ok is'nt it :D

    Unfortunately limited production. However, swapping plastic furniture for wood is easy.

    Seriously, just buy an AK. Don't worry about what kind of furniture it has. You can swap the stock, handguards and pistol grips for a matched set.

    It's like car shopping for a car that has to have Eagle GTs on it.

    Excellent analogy.

    Vince -- it's ONE SCREW holding the grip on. If you can screw in a lightbulb, you can change the pistol grip.

    And a wood pistol grip from Ironwood is like what.. $25?

    If you can afford the AK, you can afford to ditch the dinky plastic grip and replace it with a wood one. If you want all matching wood it's a little spendier, but still not too terrible. And for what it's worth, the original commie guns (at least by the 70's) were an abortion to look at -- I've an underfolder straight from the Polish army that came (albeit in parts) with a plastic grip, plywood lower handguard, and "real" wood upper handguard. Nothing matching is just how they did it over there. They eventually just went with whatever was cheap I reckon.

    ..which is what happens when you let Commies run an economy. :)

    If your worried about the furniture matching, you can always go the other direction and get it all synthetic or paint it and dont worry about it. :)

    CDignition, that is indeed one gorgeous AK. Nice work. And your sigline is friggin' hilarious. I just spit my coffee all over the keyboard. Thanks for that. :cuss:

    Oh, and I'm with Black Bart and this comment:
    Yeah. I want to see a tripod-mounted AK, 'cause that would be ninjatastic! :neener:
