    Took out the WASR 10 this weekend to see how it shoots. Overall I was pretty impressed being a Century build and all. All shots were taken from 75 yards with wolf black box ammo from the standing position. Target was a standard 8 inch bulls eye target.

    Good enough.

    I had a SAR-1 which essentially the same rifle- only with the mag dimples in the side of the receiver. I got to where I could dong an 8" plate at 200M 90% of the time. It takes a lot more practice than a peep-type sight to focus on targets at the distance with ugly U-notch of these old AKs. Especially if the target is more drab colored.

    Not my choice, but given the Romy, I could hold my own. A great limited budget carbine. You certainly won't hear many complaints in the reliability department.

    true enough there, but if i can find it i would love to put a peep sight on my ak. that would be great i loved the peep sight on my M-16A2 when i was in the Marines. So much easier to get a good sight pic at longer ranges.

    I've used Mojo on other Mil-Surp rifles:
    AK47 and SKS at Mojo Sighting Systems

    Of those two, I kind of like the increased sight radius of the tech. The advantage of the Mojo is you don't have to modify anything and the rifle, basically, retains it's original style. There are probably more options out there too.

    And some random pics of my old SAR-1:
