View Full Version : Ak's in Wyoming ***Pics***

Here are some pics of mine and my brother's Ak's.
Weather: about ten degrees, 20 mph wind and snow. Rifles fired flawlessly both in slower aiming style shots and as fast we could shoot style fire.
Jared's aks Izhamsh with fiberforce stock bottom, and Romanain top.
Justin's Vepr K with Claw style scope mount from Freedom optics and 3x9x40 ruby coated scope
Just proof the Ak can fire accurately in any conditions.

Well, you would expect that a rifle designed for the Soviet army would handle snow and cold weather. Of course, it handles heat and wet (jungle), heat and dry (desert), and about anything else that has been thrown at it. And works with little training on the part of the shooter. But, what would you expect from a rifle designed by a soldier. To the best of my knowledge, the AK-47 is one of 2 weapons designed by "on the sharp end" soldiers--the other being the Walker Colt. Walker was a captain, I believe, in the Cavalry, and was used to fighting, against Indians primarily.
What kind of muzzle brake is on the Izhmash? I know it's the AK-74 style, but how is it attached? The Saigas are a great basis for starting rifles just for shooting. I'd love to get my hands on a 16" .308 Saiga. I'd love even more to find a way to put a CETME or FAL magazine into one.

WYshooter cool pics. looks like fun! makes me wish i had more opertunities to shoot in the snow. it only snows here about twice a year here but when it does if i can get to my shooting spot (due to hilly roads and ice)im there. i used to have a plinking spot at a river that when the banks froze up i could stand on a thirty foot ledge on shoot down at the ice. breaking ice up with an ak is a blast. just wondering if you also shoot other rifles like ar's or hk variants and if so how do they hang in the snow and cold? PE
Great pics! Doesnt make me want to move to Wyoming tho. I have fired my AK in similar condition in Illinois. It was cold as all heck and lightly snowing. The rifle functioned flawlessly. Just the same as it does when I shoot in the summer when it is 95 degrees and 99%humidity.
Nice pictures but makes me cold looking at them :)
