    I have no cash righ tnoe, but am thinking about my next purchase. One of the guns that I'm considering an an WASR22 or an AK22. It's my understanding that they were made for training com-bloc forces. They are just like an AK47 with a Druganov style stock, but are .22 caliber with 10 round mags. Has anyone here owned for fired one? They are listed on the http://www.classicarms.us website and I was looking at one on Gunbroker.

    Pretty neat and a LOT cheaper to shoot. I'd buy one if I had the cash. :D

    Does $250 + FFL + shipping sound about right for it?

    You could buy a nice Ruger 10/22 and a bunch of add ons for that kind of money.

    :roll: I don't think you understand. A Ruger 10/22 isn't a WMD.

    I have A decent 6x32 scope on the way in for the AR.

    I'm not buying one YET. Just thinking about what I want Jenn to give me for my b-day in a few months.

    I'm also thinking about that. The only problem is that my AR is very tight to take apart and reassemble. I would have to take a center punch and mallett with me to the range evrytime I go. That's the only way to get the pins out. The good news is that I'll never need an Accuwedge to tighten it up. :D
