lmfao at their attempt of "two tone"
heres my purchase for the day
an SRC AK47-M, full metal body and hop unit (though its getting on a bit now), minus a battery or magazine.
For the princely sum of 20 english pounds, i got this off a mate who hasn't used it in over 2 years, he had it propped up in his room gathering dust and just wanted rid.
So first thing i did was plug the 8.4v 2200 i use in the m4 normally up to this bad boy and just test fire to make sure it was actually working...lo and behold it all seems to be in order and i love the clunk it makes haha! Now obviously i haven't got any mags and though i did try to hand feed a few rounds in, with my 9 month old upstairs i didnt wanna start firing in the house.
So instead i stripped it down (having never worked on an AK before i was surprised how easy stripping it was haha) to check the Hop and Motor etc were ok. Everything looks good, but until ive got a mag i have no idea wats going on with it. Im guessing my mate bought it before he had a UKARA as the hand guard and pistol grip are both very poorly painted wood imitation (so thick i'll probably end up scrapping them tbh), and some of the metal parts (sling mounts etc) have also been hit with the Hammerite and its flaking off to reveal the lime green underneath.
So my questions to you all are
- where can i get some more hand guards and pistol grip (decent ones)
-Any decent ugrades i could perform?
Basically ive got £100 (approx) to get this up to scratch (but that needs to include mags and possible a battery)
peace out all
