not yet

too busy working (yeah I actually work) so I probably won't have time until Sat or Sun. I've already striped, cleaned and lubed it twice even though its brend new (I know, I'm crazy). Also picked up a surplus Romanian bayonet and surplus Russian leather sling... so it should look like a true eastern bloc rifle when I'm finished.
I'm also waiting on some ammo that I ordered online. I bought a 700 rd. can of romanian mil spec 7.62x39 ammo... but due to the "frenzy" (post election orders) out there, they were backed up 10-14 days. Hopefully it will arrive this week. If its not here by this weekend, I'll just give in and go buy 100 rds at a local shop. I just hate doing that cause 20 rd. boxes of the cheap shit are up to $7 now days which is double what I pay when I buy in bulk. Time to start paying off my credit card!!!

I feel your pain too. I think we citizens are more armed and stockpiled with ammo than the current US military...LOL

drinkin

what are you drinking?

I heard of a new drink I will NEVER try: it is called the tapeworm.

2 shots of tequila and a squirt of mayonaise in the glass. It looks like a tape worm suspended in the tequila.

I have no idea how this relates to Reapers AK, but drink on, just not the tape worm...WTF

Well

Fuck me dead, that is gross. A tapeworm, you kids today. What imaginations, I guess you just don't like booze, like us old farts, with our 3 and 4 Martini lunches. Those were the days, my friend.

no thanks

i took a very large shot in new zealand once that was composed of tequila, whisky, vodka, rum, raw egg yolk. After taking the shot, I proceded to give it back to the bar... if you know what I mean. The egg just slid down my throat last, and um... no bueno

romanian surplus ammo

most of you probably know this,most if not all surplus foreign military ammo used corrosive primers.so make sure to clean your weapons after shooting to prevent rust in your guns

greasy

I know what you're saying. this particular ammo claims to be 100% non-corrosive. I have researched it and for the price... no complaints. it sure beats wolf. I will still clean my rifle afterwards though.

the only bad thing about this ammo is the laquer coating on the steel case which can bulid up on the extractor if you let a round sit while its hot... it is fine for AKs and SKS's but just be careful using laquer coated ammo in american rifles like AR's. I've seen extractors sent to their graves because of it. this goes for wolf, golden tiger, brown bear, ebear and any other animal out there
