View Full Version : WASR-10 questions--
October 25, 2007, 01:41
I have an Romanian WASR-10 that I have had for awhile--pretty plain jane, no flashhider blond wood stock and a side mount built into the receiver for a scope mount---questions are---is it cheaper to thread the barrel or can I buy a replacement barrel already threaded and is the side mount for optics decent or should I avoid it..I realize now that this weapon will more than likely outlast all my other higher priced, but finnicky weapons (save for my Glock possibly)..anyone feel free to advise--dont want to get rid of this inexpensive yet durable little carbine

Either way you slice it, if you don't have the equipment, you're going to have to spend some $$$ to have a GS do what you want to do. IMO, it would be easier to thread the barrel than to replace it. But, check with a GS and see which would be cheaper. It may be that replacing the barrel is cheaper, but I doubt it.
If you've got the equipment, you can do either, I guess.

Thanks for the O-Pines and the links--since my original post I have taken my cheap little AK and fired 100+ rds down range as quick a possible--no problems(no surprise their)--amazing how many heads turn at the range when ever my little commie-killer comes out--people always gravitate to the AK--unmistakable sound and look--most reliable, user friendly weapon in the battery!

most wasr10's just have a barrel nut thats held on with a small weld.a dremel will make quick work of that all you'd need is a US made flashiderand you'd be all set.as far as the side mounts go i'd go witha russian made mount.
