Rescued Wasr

This was a poorly treated and neglected ban era WASR with the worse refinishing job I have ever seen, it was unevenly applied and had bubbles in the stain. The after market dust cover would not even fit the rifle.

-Removed all the Handguards and Funiture. Replaced the wood with brand new polish set by WBP I think, than added a Bakelite Surplus pistols grip. New polish dust cover.

-Sawed off the barrel nut weld and added a tabuk Flash hider

-Added a belemo Posp scope with custom made RLO leather cheek riser

Rifle now easily rings steel at 200 yards off handed and looks half decent compared to its former self.

You did a fantastic job Brother JonathanW. Would you please expound on your installment of the flash hider? Do you have to thread or "re-thread" the barrel or is it pinned? I need to put some kind of flash hiders on a couple of AK variants and that one looks great.

TIA,
Jarhead

Great job on the rifle.
I have had probably 8 WASR 10/63s and never had a bad one.
Never had a new production WASR 10 but I am sure its a fine rifle.

Thank you! And it was already threaded from the factory, the nut was welded in place. 5 mins with a saw got it loose and removed. It eliminates the flash very well
