Default Picked up another rifle

This is a Lee Armory built Bulgarian AK-74. Mint, matching parts kit on a new US made Childers receiver. Exceptional fit and finish, and just a beautiful rifle. I put 600 rounds through it on Saturday and it ran GREAT! Most accurate AK I've ever owned, and better finish than my Arsenal. I am VERY impressed! This is my first 5.45 and I must say, I like it as much if not more than 7.62. With the 74 brake it is really easy on follow up shots. Like most brakes it puts out some flames!

Love it. I have wanted one for a long time. The 5.45x39 is a NASTY round! I'll have to be content with my AK47 for now

I actually sold off all my other AKs some time back. Lee Armory is building me an underfolder AKM since I have plenty of mags, ammo, and a drum sitting around. I mean...who wants lonely mags with no rifle. It was a wrong I had to right!

LOL. I picked up a bump stock for mine, just for shits and giggles. I took it with me to a machine gun shoot in VA, and dammit if that SOB didn't rock and roll! I dumped my drum so fast that people thought that it was FA! It's a bit different experience than true FA, but it was FUN and cheap!

Well, I don't plan on any competition shooting. Just blowing things up out in the desert with the occasional 600+ yard shot. This Fullfield had great reviews for a budget 50 scope. Can't go wrong for $224. The rings though, I bought nice rings. Nice rings make all the difference.

I only put 13 rounds through it. I've got an itch to fire off some more.

Good man. Those Fullfield's are classic scopes. Tried and true!

I got a buddy who's a die-hard AK guy....He'd be digging your new rifle.

I just got a new rifle too....just picked up a Marlin 1895CB in .45-70. We were out in the desert last weekend playing around at 5-600 yards with the .30 cal stuff and I decided to see what the .45-70 would do at that range. Needless to say, you may as well be lobbing mortars at that distance. Those 430 and 550 grn rounds have some serious drop at that range

Unfortunately I live in a stupid state that banned most of the modern sporting rifles like ARs & AKs
All thanks to our AG that put forth a ban back in july under her interpretation of the 1998 law
With Trump being in office now & the future pick of a new supreme Court Justice there will mostly be a lawsuit against the state that will hopefully get these bogus laws thrown out

I was out fishing when the announcement was made & the 3 day gun buying bonanza happened

I was surprised to see you can still buy AR lowers but legally you can't completely assemble them to fire
This state sucks...
