    First rifle purchase

    I've been looking to add a rifle to my collection for some time now and finally broke down and ordered a EAA Zastava PAP yesterday. Can't find much info online about so my purchase was kinda blind, so I hope it works out, but for the money I don't think I can go wrong. Should get it first of next week. Now I've got to find some ammo and 30 round mags.

    What caliber is it ?

    What are you going to use it for?

    Hope it works out good for you.

    Found out that Romanian single stack mags fit so I've 4 ordered. I picked up 200 rounds of ammo yesterday local and got another 500 coming from a online order. I might turn around and put in another order for another 1000 rounds, they have it on sale, and like my wife says "can't pass up a sale"

    Man I love shooting 7.62x39 rifles. I have two and want a couple more. Natchez has a few pretty good deals on 7.62x39 ammo.

    Be sure to post a pic when you get your new rifle. I've not seen all that many of them and never owned one.

    Did you have a local shop order the rifle or did you order online?

    Picked up a case of 7.62 Golden Tiger at the show. Didn't really see any gun deals and the ammo price I had to talk them down to match what I can buy it online for.

    Well, maybe it will come in today. I made the mistake over the weekend of letting my obsessive/compulsiveness get the best of me. You all know what a sickness gun buying is I haven't even received my first rifle for my collection and I went and bought a second.....kinda. I ordered a AR15 lower receiver to build up. Maybe I can make this project last a while and not go broke in the process.

    I pick up a 500 round box of Silver Bear 7.62x39 from my son inlaw. I love it! It is steal cased ammo and the shells ring on extraction! It's a very cool sound! My Russian made SKS is a blast to shoot! Good luck on your project.

    It may get the bow, but no tree for us. Kids are grown and we have 3 pugs. My wife will put up some kinda small table top tree just so it looks like Christmas

    Chrome bolt...Nice. Now get that thjing dirty...Dr's order:smt03
    Can the bbl be changed out with an AK bbl? curious is all. It is fine as is. I was wondering being it would be easier than threading the one like if you wanted a muzzle break.

    Not sure, something I need to find out though. Don't plan to do anything to it, but you never know....

    Oh no there's no need to. I just got curious being it's an obvious AK mod. It would be handy info when looking for parts and such. It looks to be AK parts with a US made receiver made to look the same but not allow some aspects that could make such a rifle a little more interesting

    What got me thinking about it was the barrel looks exactly like the one that was on a WASR rifle I had a while back. Is it a chrome lined barrel?Again not that it would be an issue. I just can't help with all the questions. I have not really had much exposure to that particular rifle so things I might look at in one I would have no idea if it was a standard build or not. I have a gun show coming up soon (My birthday is that weekend too.) and I plan on looking at some kinf od 7.62x39 rifle. I really like the round and in the right set up you can really have a blast with them. I have two (Chinese D Type SKS and a M70 Yugo AK) but am really toying with the idea of another. If not in that caliber then 7.62x54. I really like those "Commie Guns".

    Vee have vays of making yoo talk
