Christmas AR

Put my 7.62x39 AR together and was able to shoot it today, finally above zero.



Only fired one ten round magazine through it (winchester white box), I put the same enhanced trigger in it that I used in my 5.56.

    Congrats! :guns: :guns:

    What grain bullets you plan to fire mostly in it? What does it feel like in comparison to your 5.56 recoil wise and getting the crosshairs realigned after you shoot it ?

    The ammo I used was 123 grain. probably stay around that grain but time will tell. Need to shoot it more and when I start loading for it that could certainly change.
    I really did not notice a big difference between the 5.56 and this one and could get back on target fairly quick.
    I was going to post a picture of the target but for some reason it will not load. I was shooting at 25 yards.

    tried to load picture, still will not work.
    yup was too large, resized.
    was adjusting scope as I was shooting.

    probably too large of a file. If you hover your mouse pointer over the "x" or exclamation point, it should tell you why.

    Rifle looks good :up:

    AK mags or proprietary? Which lower and upper (parts) did you go with?
