Hi All, I have been contemplating threading the barrel on my 7.62 for a Muzzle Brake. However, in an AR forum I frequent, several members have tested accuracy with an array of barrel accessories. To a man, they report that the addition of any front-end accessory hinders accuracy. Many of them have removed the stock A2 brake in favor of a simple thread protector. What say you?
I have been hunting around for my next gun. I thought it would be the springfield armory .308 M1. since everyone has gone crazy these aren't even available, and at 1800-2000 if they are. I found a site that has .308 vepr supers in stock. they look nice with the thumbhole stock and the full wood. Is 1219 an ok price? pre craze i see people talking 1100 so it doesn't seem that bad. Looking around the site i see that people say scope mounting is tough on these, or better said the scopes are high. any advice? also the one im looking at says nothing about the side claw mount. does it come with that typically? last how about accuracy of the veprs and the super. i think 400 yards is within my ability what kind of groups should i expect?
Hey guys just wondering what kind of accuracy everyone is working with out there. With my saiga/ak 7.62x39 I can usually shoot about a 2.5 to 3 inch group at 100 yards. On a good day I can do this standing but I use a sling to stabalize. What about you? P.S. Ive got some cool pictures I would like to post but I'm not sure how now days..maybe its my browser but I used to be able to hit the "browse" button, add the file, then click the "Attatch Files" button...the attatch files button is not clickable..anyone know?
Hello everybody, I was just hoping to get some advice regarding a recent purchase I made. I just bought a Saiga 5.45 and a very nice Kalinka Optics POSP 6X scope for it. I haven’t converted the rifle at all and have been using exclusively soviet milsurp spam can ammo. I am relatively new to shooting and realize that I am shooting an AK, but I have seen much tighter groups at 100 yards from others online. I have tried weighing my gun down as much as possible with sand bags at the range to prevent any movement and being as steady on the trigger as possible, but I haven’t achieved accuracy a lot of people show off on youtube for their Saiga 5.45’s and I am wondering why. The groups I got today at 100 yards were about as big as a spread out hand for the better ones (all over the black). Maybe like 5-6 moa I think. Here are things I believe may be causing it: 1. Tigger is factory and has not yet been converted to pistol grip and nicer trigger. 2. I am a new shooter. 3. Surplus still isn’t the best (though nothing else is really as available and not as cheap) 4. Shooting the gun hot. (I started at the 50 yard range (still only got 1.5-2 moa at 50) and shot at least 60 rounds through the gun before going to 100 yards). 5. Anything else??? I know that Saigas aren’t tack drivers by any means, but I was really hoping for it to perform better. Do you think it is my fault or my Saiga’s/ammo’s? It says that it shoots 136 mm at 100 m in the manual it came with. How is that? Is it just the luck of the draw to get an accurate Saiga and I didn’t luck out? Thank you so much!
