Same.Where did you see that? I only saw molot vepr added to the list. Nothing about wolf ammo.
I was at the 200/300 yard range at HSC a few years ago and a few guys showed up with one of these. They were selling it but I wasn't looking to add to my collection at the time (I wish I did)300yd gong ringer.
I built that rifle out of a Bulgarian kit with a wicked Jager hangover at the first NES AK build party some years ago. Everyone said to paint it, but I said meh and shot a tin of 7N6 through it in the rain without cleaning it, and let it sit in my closet for like 3 years. When I finally took it out the action was pretty well stuck closed and it almost gave me tetanus, I had to hit the charging handle with a hammer to get it to open, rust had built up in the gas block. After getting it apart, I couldn't get it back together so I put the BCG and rifle muzzle down in a 5 gallon bucket of old diesel and motor oil for like a month and it went back together. Shot a few mags of "clean" Wolf ammo through it and it was good as new, so it went back in the closet. Last year I decided to take a carbine class with it and took all the wood off and installed the fagpul gear and ultimak/red dot. Snack's tried to fag shame me into painting it, but I think it looks pretty gnarly with the fagpul grey furniture and my custom patina finish. Anyway, I showed up to the class and the rifle ran like a champ for ~750 rounds in the rain on a sandy range and it was surprisingly accurate. It really is my favorite rifle.Ed, did you build that or did you shoot and beat the shit out of it? Looks very battleworn, I’ve got thousands of rounds through one of my AK’s and it still looks fairly new
I love the Magpul stuff, they really dialed in the ergos as best as they could with these rifles. The side folder is awesome because the damn rifle feels like it is 9 feet long at times, so I folded it a lot while I let it hang to do things like load mags and dress the target line, or taking a knee for a few minutes.Nice, I like the gray. I was thinking about the gray Zhukov folder but I am doing surplus bakelite forend probably, so it would likely look weird.
