    I just bought an AK-47.
    It's a california legal version so maybe it should be an AK-42. it looks in pretty good shape I'm not sure where it came from, but i'm in cali so beggars can't be choosers.
    It has a fixed stock and stupid bullet button but when i move to a free state I guess I can change those things.

    I'm pretty happy.

  9. yes it is. That was the first thing i thought when i got my first one. good looking rifle there. I bet after shooting that you'll move out of cali real quick to get another.

    Looks good petrol!

    What you have there is a slant cut muzzle brake, which I'm surprised Cali lets you have since muzzle devices are inherently evil, lol.

    What's a slant cut muzzle do?
    The first thing I did is push tyhe reciever housing release button. **** thing took ages to get back on.

    When the gas from the powder comes out the muzzle, the gases push on the slanted part and help keep the muzzle jump down. I personally like the AK-74 type muzzle brake, but the slant works ok.

    CNC Warrior :: AK74 style muzzle brake $14.99

    I left my underfolder with a friend a couple weeks ago and looking at all these nice AKs sure makes me miss her.
