No, it’s not exactly new, but the the WASR-10, made in Romania at the Cugir Arms Factory, is an all time classic and was certainly the linchpin of the Romanian People’s Republic armory. (Circle 10 AK, one of our partners has a sale on these so I felt compelled to add it to this section). Bang for buck it is one of the best AKM variants available. (What other half way decent AK can you buy for under $700?)
The WASR-10 is a post-ban version of the AKM rifle in 7.62×39mm caliber. Factory-original rifles only support single-stack, low-capacity magazines (10-rounds). After import, Century Arms offered WASR rifles modified to accept double-stack, standard-capacity magazines (machining burrs on the magazine well may cause some magazines to fit improperly if the burrs are not removed). Pistol grip and thumbhole stocks were both commonly fitted to WASR rifles.
It features a 16″ Romanian cold hammer forged, chrome lined barrel with a 1:10 twist chambered in 7.62x39mm and the muzzle is threaded for the standard 14x1mmLH (Threading with a standard slant brake on the end).
Inside the receiver is the Century Arms RAK-1 Enhanced Trigger Group. The receiver also features a standard side rail for mounting your favorite optics in combination with your preferred side mount. It also accepts all standard AK-47/AKM magazines (due to tolerances across the board with AKs and magazines, some may be a tighter fit than others).
The WASR-10 ships with 1 30-round magazine (where applicable), a sling and cleaning kit. Does not include cleaning rod. Wood grain and color may vary.
