Thank you!

I need to find a stock shorter than the standard Warsaw length.

The collaspable stock is definitely shorter than Warsaw and I believe the sidefolding wz96 (wire) is Warsaw length.

I definitely like the wz 96 better, but it is very low for the railed optics, but good when and if you'd need irons. Might end up going with a 1-4x or 1-6x instead of the eotech

Picture of the rear tang for those that wanted to see if you could stick a normal stock on it.

The pro magazine that I got with the rifle sucked,ones inserted into the rifle you could not rack the bolt back. I had to file it down some and now the bolt rides smoothly.





I also noticed 3 things on this rifle that don't match in color.

1- gas tube. All the numbers match on this rifle EVEN the gas tube but the serial number I believe is forced matched because it's laser engraved Probably 922R?
2- mag release
3- stock plate.

All three are super shiny in black color.

The ProMags are designed with extra plastic to be fitted to the different 5.56 AK's. It's a design feature.

It's way to high, if you have a lower mount it will pretty good. I think the red dot will sit at 1/3 co witness. I really believe that eotech 512 is perfect for this rifle.

If you buy 10 there's 5 off per mag.

I just picked a few up... The site says they have over 1600 units left!

Are you sure that these are the green ones? They have them listed as clear. It's hard to tell from the crappy photo. I'd be interested to hear if anyone has ordered these and whether they got clear ones or green.

The clear ones usually look a lot more white than what is pictured but I'm not picking up any hint of green in the picture either.

They did say clear, though they look green... I ordered one a little while ago to see what it is... When it shows up I'll let you guys know.

The green ones are better than the clear ones right?

It's gotta be better than the promag!...if they're good then at least there's a good place to source them from!

Search Beryl on Gunbroker, unfortunately they are $40 a pop.
