A Polish AK-M: The WBP Jack Review

James Reeves
by James Reeves

Polish Kalashnikov variants, AK-47s (or, more properly, AK-Ms), and AK-74-type rifles have been coming into the country for decades, but Polish AKs have been imported and distributed in greater volume recently, with the Beryl AKs from FB Radom and the WBP Fox and WBP Jack seeing positive reviews and greater sales volumes in recent years. These AKs cost over $1,000, though – are they worth it? Watch today’s video to make that decision for yourself.

• The WBP Jack is Available at AtlanticFirearms.com
• Mags for the Jack can be picked up at TopGunSupply.com

Info from Atlantic Firearms, the retailer of these AKs, follows:

Imported from Rogow Poland and manufactured by WBP the Jack Classic 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 762×39 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.

    Let's look at this a different way: these are priced slightly above a WASR.

    I recently picked up a Mini Jack pistol for 950. Now look at the price of a Draco. Comparing the two, the Mini Jack feels much smoother and nicer. My only gripe is the Draco has a slightly shorter trigger pull, but that won't matter because I plan to put a BAD EKG trigger in it anyway. Also, the Mini Jack comes with an underfolding trunnion hiding inside the receiver, so all my Krinky fantasies will finally come true. https://www.thefirearmblog....

      @sound awake I'd never recommend a 7.62x39 AR to anyone, the best of the bunch is the MK47 which uses AK mags and as such has no bolt hold open or bolt release. Meaning it has an entirely different manual of arms from either rifle.

      I think most people would be better off buying an imported AK while they still can. A lot more practical than working around the quirks of the MK47.
