So I decided to get another in the stable. My previous was a CAI WASR-10 and although I heard a lot of complaints on them mine was okay. The sights were not canted and there was very faint mag wobble.

Anyways I decided to give this N-PAP a try from Buds. I like the look of the laminated wood and I've read several positive reviews. It looks like they now ship with a double stack bolt where as the earlier models had singles from what I heard. Anyone on here have one of these? If so how do you like it?

Here's a stock picture. Should have the rifle sometime next week. Looking at stocking up on some zinc plated/cased Silver Bear ammo.

Nice. The only downfall I've heard of is the barrel is not chrome lined and therefore must be cleaned frequently (which isn't a problem as I am OCD and I rarely shoot corrosive ammo).

Still trying to figure out if the receiver is 1.0mm or 1.5mm thick?

Thanks. Well apparently I have to purchase this from my LGS as Buds will not ship semi automatic rifles to residents of Cook County.

Our laws here are so retarded. State Law has no restrictions but then Cook County has a ban on them unless you live in a town where they consider "Home Rule" which in my city they allow them.

I think next spring I will ask for a transfer and it's time to leave. So tired of putting up with the liberals and the bullshit up here.

End rant.

Left Illinois. Live in Texas. Haven't been back since.

Move here. Vote right.

Regarding that gun, not sure if you've handled them by they have near Arsenal level fit and finish (sorry fanboys).

Enjoy.

I'm kind of torn on whether to get the AK or an AR as my first "high powered" rifle. Right now, I just have .22LR hunting rifle.

Take a look at the new Ruger AR 5.56. $539 local at the moment.

Bought a gently used Colt LE6940 last year over an ak and don't have any regrets.

So for those that have one of these, what is the recoil like compared to an AR?

AK recoil is very weak for me...When I shoot a 5.56 it feels like nothing...its all about preference

Occasional target shooting. I don't need anything high-end. That's why I'm leaning toward the Zastava NPAP.
Honestly they both do about the same. Modern AR platforms are just as accurate as any AK. The Ar can be a bit more accurate, but the AK is cheaper to shoot generally.
Pick which one is most comfortable to handle and manipulate.

The real numbers are: approximately 4.0 ft lbs of recoil energy for a 5.56 green tip compared to 7.0 ft lbs of energy for the 125 @ 2350 fps 7.62x39, both being in a 7 pound rifle.

Both are very comfortable, but everything is subjective.

For reference, a full power .270 winchester recoils with about 20 ft lbs of energy, and the venerable .30-30 win with about 11. All 7 pound rifles to be apples to apples.
