A reader from Sweden, Supernaut242, writes …

Supernaut242 here, TFB:er and gun guy in Sweden. I’ve sent in a shot of my AKM in it’s current shape.

The rifle is a Cugir WS1-63, a Romanian AKM variant imported into the US as WASR-10. The rifle is equiped with the following: RS Regulate AK-301 and AKML mounts with a Vortex Sparc II red dot. Magpul pistol grip. No-name lower forearm. SRVV Jet Brake v2 AKM. Magpul furniture and magazines are ordered, but they haven’t started to export them to Sweden yet.

Check out my YouTube channel.

Thanks a handsome rifle. Thanks Supernaut242.

    You’re going to love the magpul furniture. Your shoulder will too!

    • Yeah, besides looking cool I’m looking forward to getting a stock that’s long enough. 🙂

  • Thanks for the shout out! 😀

  • Cyberats

    Would like to see AsH-12 imported cheaply for our Revolution.

    I’ll raise..

      Dat chin weld though…

      • Blake

        Haha I was zooming in on the picture looking for a spotty weld that would be called a “chin weld” (wondering what would even be welded on an AKM). Then I felt stupid.

  • Kyle

    I’m not a big AK guy but that is a good looking rifle.

  • Wolfgar

    Nice looking AK. The Magpul Zhukov-s stock,”I assume you are planning to get” is a great folding an adjustable stock. How do you like the AK-301 scope mount?

    • Yes, going for Zhukov. Folder means I can transport easier and long forearm just seems nice. I do love the AK-301 mount, I just wish I could afford a proper Aimpoint, but the Vortex does the job.

  • Ken

    I like the mag sell dimples. We don’t get them on the WASR’s imported here. They just don’t look right without them.

    Are canted front sights and gas blocks a common problem on the Romanian AK’s over there too?

    • I haven’t handle any other Cugir rifles here, Arsenal dominates the market and they only have milled models here. Cugir was the only stamped AK I could find. My sights are on straight but weren’t properly adjusted for anything beyond 20 meters from factory.

      • Ken

        Good to know. Weird that more stamped AK’s are not imported to Sweden. Is it true that you’re only allowed to have a certain number of rifles in Sweden? I guess people want to have premium guns if they have a limit on quantity.

        We love Bulgarian Arsenals here too, but they’re expensive. Right now in the US, decent AK’s are not cheap ($550-$600 for a new WASR), while you can buy/build a decent AR for that much if not slightly less.

        • I just couldn’t find any vendors selling them. This was about 8000 SEK (~$960) imported from Germany including shipping and fees, my AR-15 (Oberland Arms OA-15 M5 Black Label) was about 14000 SEK (~$1700) new from a Swedish vendor and that’s a standard no frills 16 inch AR.

  • Kalash

    skip the magpul- its just mall ninja garbage.

    • Squirreltakular

      I’m sure he’ll take your advice seriously.

    • USMC03Vet

      This a joke comment?
      AK has tons of just awful furniture options for it and finally magpul offers something reasonably prices and is also functional. It’s the new benchmark if you actually care about sustained use of the rifle.

      • iksnilol

        How is it in regards to cold? Have heard (and seen) bad things about Magpul and cold.

        Also, that plastic hinge on the stock is a bad idea.

        • ostiariusalpha

          Sure, a steel reinforced hinge would be nice, but that plastic hinge is tough. You really do have to run it over with a heavy vehicle to break it, and a steel hinge can bend so that it won’t unfold correctly. Either way, it’s not something you have to worry about unless you get drunk and run over your guns on a regular basis.

          • iksnilol

            I don’t, remember, it was from 3-5 years ago. They tested magpul mags in the cold and they failed. I presume they use the same plastic for mags and stocks so I thusly am sceptical of the stocks.

          • ostiariusalpha

            There was a TFB article from 2009 showing the first gen PMags cracking from a cold test, and the first gen MBUS would distort from heat if installed directly to a railed gas block. I’ve seen cracked MRev PMags also. That said each new generation has used a different polymer formulation that increased their resistance to cold & heat; MBUS gen2 don’t melt, and gen M3 PMags don’t become brittle at temperatures that wouldn’t quickly kill the person carrying them.

        • I’m not planning on using it folded and the plastic in my other Magpul parts have had no problems with the Swedish winters at least.

          • iksnilol

            What part of Sweden are you in? Are you in the south part of Sweden or the north?

          • The Stockholm area, so technically south.

  • Joel. K

    On what license did you buy that could in sweden? IPSC?

    • quattro

      You cannot get a license for an AK for IPSC in Sweden any longer. There might be a few, but this is done in Another way. Should have been stopped now with the new gun law from jan 2015.

      • Joel. K

        But you can get a license for an AR-15? right?

        • Henrik Bergdahl

          Yes, if you pay a lot of money for an IPSC course and wait 2 years + a lot of song and dance for the license. And by then the police have probably banned IPSC rifle as well.

    • “Fritt gevär” (Free Rifle), which was possible until the start of this year. Right now it’s only IPSC that can get “fun” rifles, and pretty much only AR-15. Also, the Swedish IPSC federation is pretty shady and we are more than a few who don’t like them.

  • Henrik Bergdahl

    I also live in Sweden and here is mine 😉

    • Jim

      Love your banana clip! LOL!

      • Giolli Joker

        It is even BHO compatible!

    • G0rdon_Fr33man

      What threads for that B&T? QD?

    • iksnilol

      What kind of silencer is that? B&T or Ase Utra? How good is it?

  • Joe

    Slick looking piece of kit!

  • Maxpwr

    It’s “like” the WASR-10 imported into the USA, except the WASR-10 starts out as a custom 10 round low capacity rifle imported into the US which then has the mag well milled out by a 3rd party such as Century Arms to fit standard AK magazines and several imported parts replaced with USA made parts to comply with our import bans. I’d rather have this original like they can get in Sweden, but for some reason we can’t get in the USA even with the Second Amendment. Nice AK.

  • Cknarf

    My WASR came with furniture comparable to driftwood lol.

    Damn fine rifle otherwise.

    • Thank you! The wood on mine is of excellent quality but wrong finish for that authentic Russian feel.
