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.

    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.

    My WASR came with furniture comparable to driftwood lol.

    Damn fine rifle otherwise.

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