Waffen Werkz Bulgarian AK 74

I picked this up about a year ago and have been trying to figure its place in my collection.

Dont take that the wrong way, lol, its staying, but I have yet to decide on its final configuration.

At first it came with a Parabellum Armament railed top cover that had a rudimentary "V" notch rear sight. After trying out the top cover and rail set up I was not exactly happy about all the sight (front sight that is) adjustments I had to make on paper. So I stripped off the aforementioned PA parts and added the Krebs rear peep, and a Midwest Industries 30mm red dot mount, complete with an Aimpoint carbine optic.

So far the combination seems to be working, but I've run into something that has given a little worry. Namely the MI mount has the red dot so low there literally a sheet of papers thickness between the top cover and the optics objective lens. And second the mounts arm is so close to the top covers side it touches.



I'm looking at other mounting options, namely the MI AK universal hand guard set with the ML2 top cover.

It almost looks like an AR/AK combination. What buttstock is on it?

Well its a VLTOR AR stock adapter, with a Spikes Tactical take off M4 stock, in those pictures.

I did some more work to the rifle in the last few weeks, its only a starter to this type of AK, I want to upgrade to an Arsenal 74 in the near future.

Here in the last few weeks I've gotten industrious and filled in the numbers on the rear sight, fitted a non-ribbed receiver cover and and temporarily installed a Magpul MOE stock.

Heres the paint work on the rear sight


and the over all look at the moment



The mags are also new, Bulgarian Plum 30 rounders

Not my cup of tea but I do appreciate someone with an idea and taking it to fruitation. Please note fruitation is now a word according to G. W. Bush.
