this is where you lost me.

i know that lots of people complain about Arsenal's crappy finish, but i have seen major "factory" issues like having the headspace off, use of incorrect rivets, canted sights, faulty triggers and shitty crowning jobs.

yea, i have done plenty "bubba" jobs, and have seen many good friends do "bubba" jobs that came way ahead of Arsenals "FACTORY" job.

LOL

I think I’m going to get another 5.45 Vepr (fixed stock) and forget about a 5.45 SBR for now

This topic has been done to death here. That's why I provided links. Some of us derive amusement when topics such as this come up because, yes, we have been there, done that. Literally. Some of us were the first to submit our Form 1 even though we were told it will never shoot straight.



Holy crap! Really!?! Well, shit. I would have never guessed that.

When the SLR104UR was first introduced, "ryanr256" and I were one of the first akfile members that was willing to take a chance and proceeded to go ahead and chop the 104ur barrel. There were plenty of doubters and many say "it will keyhole" due to the wrong twist ratio. Well, we've proved them wrong.

"Mrgunsngear" decided to make a DIY video after he saw the original thread that I posted in the Krink section. http://www.akfiles.com/forums/showpo...&postcount=119

Yeah, both "ryanr256" and I usually joke about it each time we see new thread pop up about what issues will the SLR104UR have after chopping the barrel and will it "keyhole."

Yeah, we took a bunch of shit going against the grain. Now we laugh at it. Hell, I've even suppressed mine and I read all the time that AKs can't be suppressed, or that it isn't worth it to suppress an AK.

I laugh at that too.

The main point is, do whatever the f**k you want to do. The Internets is full of opinionated people. Just ask 'em. Doesn't mean they have experience.
