CIA AKMS Semi-Automatic 7.62mmX39mm 30+1 Capacity 16.25" Bar
by John S Date Added: Friday 05 August, 2011
After 3 weeks, I finally got to take it to the range today. I love this rifle!

The folding stock is solid and the Tapco trigger is really sweet.

The sights are straight although I gave myself a bit of a scare adjusting them at first. Before I took it to the range, I bought a laser boresighter and it showed the front sights being way off high and to the right; by the time I adjusted the sights to zero on the laser dot, the front sight post was lowered all the way and the windage drum was sticking out the left side about 3mm and indented on the right. HOWEVER, by the time I was able to zero it at the range, the sights had been adjusted back almost to where they were out of the box. So no canted-sight horror show after all. Life is good.

With what I spent on the laser and the ammo I used to zero the rifle....I could have bought more ammo, of course. :)

It is a blast to shoot and super-easy to break down and clean. It was super-clean right out of the box; I only put about three patches through the barrel. Otherwise it was spotless.

It came with two thirty-round mags; one brand new with a flat-black finish that matches the rifle and a used one that had a glossy finish that was worn around the edges, but otherwise in great shape. They both functioned perfectly at the range WITH ZERO WOBBLE.

This was my third transaction with Bud's and their service was perfect just like the other two times. I ordered after their closing time and the rifle was at my FFL on the morning of the third business day afterward.

I always thought of myself as more of an M-4 guy and bought this AKMS mainly out of curiosity, but am so glad I did.

To paraphrase Ice Cube: It was a pretty good day / Finally got to shoot my AK
