Mine shoots low left. And from a few people hear they tend to shoot that way from the factory. And you are better off getting a dot. As for shooting clays, trap and whatever shooting discipline. You will need some screw on chokes. Spread is wide as hell at 20-25 yards. I mean its a smooth bore 19" barrel.

Pinetreescent I took the lynx out to pattern with some loads on friday. at 25yards its got quite a spread. may be looking into some screw on chokes for the future. aside from being a wide pattern ( to be expected) I ran every load flawlessly. I shot some shells they dont even make anymore and were old. Even some old paper rounds I had that were low brass. With the gas system open I feel it will cycle anything.

On a side note. I keep having a problem with the factory magazine. seems the metal tab (keeps the rounds in) comes off time to time during mag changes. So if I have a few rounds in the mag when I take the mag out they kinda go everywhere. happened a few times during a cease fires. Promag drum ran flawlessly. Which I feel weird saying a promag ran great. It's the 12rd drum. Fits snug and fed every round I put in it.

Pitbull_Dallas Looks like a fun shotgun, but alas I just bought a new bolt rifle. Might make it a Christmas present to me though..

AK103K $300 was a steal. Should have jumped on it.

As far as betting your life..... mine runs as good as my Remington 1100, handles better, and reloads a lot faster. Its a 12ga AK.

Jack Swilling $400
Seems like a deal for some fun shooting
Not sure I would bet my life on it
Buds and others are at $449

roseman I bring my own targets as well.

Pinetreescent Mine is currently being upgraded with 922r parts so I can run drums and us made magazines. It's been damn good so far.
Wish I would have waited a few months before buying mine though. Shortly after they came out with their 3gun version with left side charging handle and railed top cover.

Shootin' Cardboard

[QUOTE=Eagle Scout Survivor;19384588]I bought one but have trouble finding places to shoot it. All the local ranges don't want you firing shotguns at the rifle range due to chewing up the target boards.

I've arranged at both ranges I frequent to bring large cardboard boxes to hold my targets specifically to avoid damage to range equipment.

AK103K So far, Ive put about 75 rounds of #1 buck, 15 rounds of slugs, and about half a box each of high brass #6 and low brass #8's.

The #8's were hit or miss, but again, I didnt mess with the gas setting, so Im sure thats probably the problem there. I really dont intend to use anything but the #1 buck in it anyway.

So far, Im liking it a lot. Works just like my AK's and its a fairly handy mag fed shotgun that makes the others I have around for the same purpose basically obsolete.

Im already thinking of dumping my Remingtons and Mossbergs and picking another LYNX up.

May just hold onto the others too though. Around here, used shotguns dont go for much, so its almost not worth it.

Still, with the LYNX, the others dont make a lot of sense either. Ill just have to see whats going to be the most equitable.

stroo Thanks AK103M! Been kicking around getting one of these. How many shells did you run through it?
09-12-2019 12:09 PM
AK103K I picked one of these up in a trade last month. Came with one 5 round and three 10 round mags. Mine has the chromed bolt/carrier.

It also came with a railed fore end installed, as well as the factoy forearm, which I put back on. Dont see the point to the other, and it will go on EBay here soon with some of the other things Ive picked up in trades.

I didnt mess with the gas regulator, but as it came, it fed everything but low brass #8's without issue. Both 5 and 10 round mags work flawlessly.

Stock has the same LOP as my other AK's, so it feels natural when it shoulders, Its got 12ga recoil, but if you shoulder it properly, its not really any different than any other 12ga. I usually take the recoil pads off any I have anyway, so this one saves on that, and has a correct LOP to boot.

If you want a sling on it, the SKS slings (or something using their leather tabs) fit the swivels. I threw an old SKS sling on mine for now.

A standard 3 cell AK chest bag will carry three 10 round mags. The flaps wont close, but thats not a problem, the mags arent going anywhere. You can get three reloads worth of ammo in the smaller pouches too.

You pretty much have to load it with the bolt back. At least I have to with mine. Cant get the mag to rock in otherwise.

Figured out the easiest way to do it (for a "righty" anyway) is, put the butt of the gun on your hip with your right hand wrapped around the receiver at the port, with your index finger over the charging handle. Pull the charging handle all the way back, remove/replace the mag, and let the charging handle go. Works pretty slick and quick once you get it down.

drobs Good guns. Mine feeds everything. Got a bit of a kick to it. I'll try a longer stock and see if that softens the recoil a little.
