Since you said w/o scopes as well..

First shots new out of the box(just cleaned and lubed w Breakfree before hand) w open sites basically offhand(holding on to a nearby post) at 50yrds(the big holes :)). Nice targets, eh? Haven't tried it at 100yd yet. Figure about twice that group size.

Eo Tech mounted on an Ultimak rail...

Chest sized steel, 300 yards. Prone/Kneeling

Iron sites, ~8-10 inch 'head sized' steel offhand @ 100


No problems.


-Other people have shot further... I just havn't had the occasion to shoot the AK further.

I shot mine close to 100 yards with iron sights I hit the target. I was just doing a test fire to see if it all worked ok and I didnt baby it at all and it ate everything I put in it. The WASR-10 is an AK and works just like an AK.

i have no complaints about my wasr. even I realise that i PROBABLY wont ever be in a fire fight. but hey better to have and not need! i feel confident that i can fend off anyone trying to take my stuff. if certain neighbors of mine were to ever try to rob me they would be in for a big surprise with their deerguns.

I recently found and purchased the nicest Century WASR I have ever seen, after having checked out and handled dozens and dozens of them. I took it to the range yesterday and was making standing off-hand hits at 100 yards on an 8" target without any problem using the irons. That's as good a job as I can do with just about any 16" centerfire rifle shooting standing and unsupported at that distance. Otf the bench I am sure it's probably good for sub-3MOA, which is plenty good for an AK shooting crappy off-the-shelf Wolf MC.

WASR= Type of AK.

Romanian, Says WASR (10 or 2 etc) on the reciever.


It is currently the most inexpensive ak and so is bemoned as a cheap POS etc...

While it is not as refined as some... and there are a couple things to look for, if you get a WASR with crooked sites etc... it is fixable, and they run just fine.

(Those that don't... If you buy it 'new' century will pay shipping both ways to fix/replace it and you have no need of going through a FFL when dealign with a Manufacturer.)
-Noncentury gun... check who made it.

Ok, I have a Century Arms GP1975 with black furniture. Shoots pretty good so far.

The Romanian government signed a treaty (the Wassenaar Arrangement) which restricts the export of military rifles. The receiver of the WASR (Wassenaar Arrangement Semiautomatic Rifle) was redesigned so it did not qualify as a military rifle as defined in the treaty. The redesign involved replacing the dimples with L shaped brackets that were copied from late production RPKs and narrowing the magazine well so it would only accept a single stack 10 shot magazine.

The only problem I ever had with my WASR was the darn trigger reatining pin would back out. I bought a TAPCO reating plate and that problem went away. As for accuracy, out of the box (after a very good cleaning of coarse) open sights I shot 20 rounds in about a 4 inch cirlce of the bench at a 100 yards. Since then I have installed the retaining plate and a Tapco stage 2 trigger kit, and I am telling you that kit is sweet.

i have a WASR 10--& the rear site base is pinned on a bit crooked,.the receiver looks as tho it is twisted ( lol like a wash cloth being wrung out )---& even the front site looks canted....but i've put @ 1,500 + thru this sucker and its right on
i have installed a Kobra red dot,..has multiple chevrons to choose from,.i like it-
holds it's zero even after removing it many times to clean the rifle,..i havent had the oppertunity to see how far it will accurately reach out & touch a target
yet,..100 yds. is the limit at our range
