my review

This is the commercial export version of the WASR and is chambered in 5.56x45 or .223 Remington

My complaints are:

#1 that the barrel wasn't threaded to accept a muzzle brake.
#2 it does not like plastic mags( fitment is really tight) jammed a few times with these which I had heard before so I picked up some of the Weiger mags, they worked great with no issues.

Overall, I was very pleased with the rifle and would recommend it to anyone that would like to stick one rifle caliber.

ak in 223

I had one of these about 10 years ago. Bought it for 400 from a dealer in redmond oregon. It had 5 red bakalite mags. It never jamed, shot real well. Sold it for 700 about a year after I owned it. Now wish I hadn't.
