I know what you’re thinking, “Didn’t TFB already cover the WBP Jack back in December?” Yes, we did. But this is a new version of that rifle. The WBP Jack SR deletes the side rail mount for optics bringing it in line with how the AKM was originally issued. So I see this more for those who want a more early AKM clone correct rifle or plan on running a dust cover rail, or UltiMAK setup for an optic.

According to the WBP Jack SR listing on Arms of America:
WBP Polish Jack Rifle 762SR Imported from Rogow Poland and manufactured by WBP the Jack Rifle offers rock solid features. WBP is a Polish based firearms firm supplying parts and firearms to Police, Military and Civilian shooters all over the globe. The Jack rifle is chambered in 7.62×39 semi auto and accepts a wide variety of mags and drums. These are beautiful rifles with Old School styling and look like an AK should look with gorgeous laminate stock set and deep rich black metal finish. The barrels are supplied by FB Radom the Polish Military supplier and are hammer forged and chrome lined yielding years of service and fantastic accuracy. The rifle sports factory serial numbers on most major parts and the Polish Eagle on the left side of the sight block for added collectability & resale value. If you are looking for an AK rifle with Old School style and quality this may be the perfect rifle! Comes with 1-30 round AK 47 Magazine.
The WBP Jack is a result of input and requests from customers that loved the WBP Fox series but wanted a model with a standard AKM rear stock trunnion. The FOX rifle series offered the Beryl trunnion system allowing the shooter to install the Beryl Optic Rail. The FOX rifle has become a favorite for Kalashnikov enthusiasts and is one of the benchmarks that other AKs are gauged against. The roll out of new WBP models has been slow as they have wanted to focus on quality over quantity of their product but they are now up to 10 different models being produced, all with the same classic features and quality you’ve come to expect! The WBP Team will continue to listen to input from their customers and you can expect new and exciting WBP firearms and accessories in the future.
