    All this hype of piston AR's made me post this. :D Here is a rifle that was way ahead of it's time. The South Korean K2, mine is a Kimber imported AR100.
    Yes, it even has a 1:7 twist barrel. Unfortunately, the post ban DR200 came with 1:12.
    She is a pleasure to shoot, no "sproing" either.

    This one is available locally... what's involved with installing a PG, bayo lug and a folder?

    Even though it used a gas tube, the K1A1 was my favorite.

    Secondary market. The prebans haven't been available since 89. Saw a couple sell on GunBroker around $1,300-1,400.

    My only complaint about the design: You need a 4" long thumb to work the safety. BSW

    So the "semi" setting is at 3:00, but where does the safety point for the "safe" setting?

    Those are neat rifles but as I recall kind of heavy compared to an AR... those insides sure are shiny!

    How's it shoot?

    Note also: everyone of those bad hombre ROK troops has his finger on the trigger.

    I also have a AR-100 marked Daewoo K2. Several different importers imported these and the designation changed every time the importers changed. The K2 design is known as the K2, the AR-100, and (IIRC) the Max-2.

    Mine is a great shooter. I added a rail and an Eotech, although I'm probably going to dump the Eotech for an Aimpoint later.

    A friend who was in the army and served in Korea, told me those Korean soldiers are hardcore! Looks a neat rifle in preban mode.
    Thanks for sharing
