Century WASR-10 7.62x39mm

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

We wondered if ol' reliable would outshoot Sig's fancy new- school AK, and it did with one ammo. The Tapco G2 trigger was surprisingly good, our testers said. We'd change the buttstock.

Yes, that is Sig's excellent Mini Red Dot Sight (STS-081, $199) riding atop the WASR-10. It's on a Midwest Industries AK Side Railed Scope Mount (, #7-MIAKSM, $109). The scope mount fits on the rifle using the built-in receiver rail.
Here's one area the WASR-10 needs work. The fixed, laminated buttstock has a short LOP of 13 inches, and most of our shooters would like it a little longer. Also, the metal buttplate will pound the half-day shooter, so a rubber pad would help.
