    Steel 30 RD Bulgarian mags from aimsurplus

    That's not true. They're the exact same thickness; both are 0.028". IMO, the only advantage the surplus mags have over the Bulgarians is the design of the feed lip. Otherwise, the two are almost identical. Just going off the info here: http://www.theakforu...hp?f=9&t=147546 and here: http://www.theakforu...hp?f=9&t=135787 Ill buy one and test the thickness myself while posting pictures, that way we can avoid confusion. I just measured both with a set of digital calipers. Also, the Bulgarians also seem to have stronger feed pressure (probably because the spring is also a touch thicker, @ 1.6mm for the Bulgies and 1.51mm for the surplus). Ironically, the finish is better on the surplus mags than the Bulgarians. +1 for doing the tests. This will be the last time I base my opinion off of theakforum without testing it beforehand. Still, I am worried about the poly followers, but I will do a series of tests myself to determine if my initial understanding of these things was full of shit.

  3. That is a good idea actually. Nice work.
  4. have you thought about dropping $469 and buying the 22lr trainer clone that ISSC puts out? Supposedly its built really close to the real thing unlike the GSG crap that was floating around out there. Someone just pointed to this video on another forum where the trainer gets run over by an SUV and lives to shoot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lsiiz_STTAM Anyway it may be worth the purchase.
  5. That is a good deal, just make sure the v21's wood is not all beat to hell. Typically used items tend to be well worn, and you may want to make sure its free of rust before buying..... that being said $500 is a good deal!

  13. ^This is the best advice. Just drill out the rear trunnion that you butchered and put in a new one. Remember: Friends dont let friends install ACE stocks.

    Is a dragunov stock on a 16 inch AK retarded?

    Exactly what function is being compromised with the PSL-style stock? It has the following characteristics which compromise function: -Weight -Lack of ability for thumb to create a full seal -Lack of compartment for cleaning kit -Awkward placement of second finger (the one under the trigger finger sits to far away from the trigger on Romanian thumbhole stocks) There are probably a lot of other reasons, but I can think of them off the top of my head.
