Re: VASKA vs. WASR 10, thoughts?

Cleaned and lubed the AK then sent 160 rounds downrange this weekend of Tul ammo, 122 grain ball ammo. WASR 10 functioned perfectly. Rifle was surprisingly accurate at 100 yards, much to the dismay of various half-gallon water jugs, tin cans, and other debris left behind at the quarry. I picked up ...

Anyone know why it doesn’t work now? I’m on my iPhone, and for some reason Tapatalk can’t seem to find the forum.
We discontinued the Tapatalk plug-in over a year ago, it's a big security hole.

If you have better ideas, I'm all ears. :lurker:
Perhaps some kind of question(s) that must be answered to create your account. We can discuss it at the staff meeting.
We already have a Q&A anti-spam procedure in place. Logout and try registering as a new user to see it.

Despite folks saying WASR is an acronym for "What a Shi-ty Rifle", I've put thousands of rounds thru it with no issues. I need to drag that sucker out and take it to the range. It's probably been 2 years since I fire...

Soviet Steeds is pretty benign when it comes to internet forums. As compared to some other motorcycle forums and groups...
