    thats right, all of a sudden it clicked. I love the 7.62x25 cartridge. Its one of the cheapest rounds on the market to shoot which means it would be great to "buy it cheap and stack it deep" right now
    (the lament of so many who saw cheap ammo deals pass them by), and well In a carbine that takes cheap drums....how can it not be full of win? Anyways Militarygunsupply.com has them $795 and I am seriously considering picking one up as a fun gun that I can spend all day shooting and it only costing a few bucks. Anyone have input on these?

    I remember some "issues" recounted on the internet a couple of years ago.

    The original is a robust design. I have no idea these reproductions, but if you get one, let us know how it works, will ya?

    These issues were from the early striker-fired design made by Wise Lite for Militarygunsupply.com. This design is no longer used except by Allied Armament which I do not recommend. Wise Lite now uses a hammer-fired AR-15 trigger group. Another problem with early Wise Lite's was their choice in using French MAS barrels which were a bit too narrow in bore diameter. They have since switched to Mosin barrels which eliminated the accuracy problems.

    Bottom line: buy a new gun from MilitaryGunSuppy since it will be current production and trouble-free. A used gun may be one of the older versions.

    i´m with you on that.

    Never understood why no-one would build a new carbine
    for it..... cheap... high penetration.... i sooo would want one.

    ..maybe a lever-action even?

    If that's the case, you guys need to learn how to reload. Feeding my DSA FAL only costs me $.15 a pop, not counting the brass, which is reuseable.
