My one and only AK74.



I finally got around to putting a scope on the rifle. A Soviet era Russian Military 1P29 4x32 Scope. Its a close copy of the British Trilux SUIT scope of the 1970's that they used on the L1A1 (Inch pattern FAL). It is cammed for 5.45x39 but there is also RPD/SVD cams.
I like the design of the Trilux and the Soviet implementation is a very faithful reproduction with an added benefit of the 1.5m range finder.

Thanks from Tommo, pigpen, RDS and 7 others

I like it too. It looks like something that would have come come across the Afghan-Uzbek bridge in 82.

Very Nice!

Just an FYI, AIMs has some Russian AK74 mags for sale in Plum color. A nice Plum color Mag would look Great in your AK74.

That's a 45 round magazine. Not a 30 rounder.

Very nice! I agree, we all need at least one AK74 clone, here is mine.

Arsenal SLR104 ? I put an OBZOR on mine and used brown paracord for the wrap.

Thanks from Glashaus

Yes it is a 104-31, I swapped out the black poly stock to a triangle, and the fore arm and grip to plum. I will probably re wrap the para cord with a different color then the desert that I did, but it works for now. OBZOR is sweet! I have a PA 5X prism on a Arsenal SM-13 mount with a quick detach. I am using an older 3X PA on my 107CR, I like the PA scopes quite a bit.

Avoided the 74 for a few years, when I decided to impulse buy a Romak II that was cheap on armslist. Big mistake. Now I almost prefer the "little" AK over it's big brother, and am always hunting for mags, rifles, etc. Nice example there in the OP - love the optic, and the 45 round bake is icing. Looking to pick up a couple of Russian poly 45s, but just don't want to spend the money right now, even though I see them for almost half of what they were just a few years ago. Great rifle, and mrmark's is a nice example.

Guy on another forum or two has NOS 45 round bakes for $37 each; hell, I think he's even a member here, but don't see his ad up on this site. Great price, especially since AIM is selling them for around $65/each.

Saw that too, I have bought Russian 30 round Bakalites from him, he is on this Forum and he is a great guy to buy from!

Nice day yesterday, and went out with my kids and some friends to burn some ammo.

One rifle there was an SLR104fr. It and a Colt piston AR (6940P?) were the two fan favorites. The 104 was surprisingly accurate, typical low 5.45 recoil, and was just a comfortable shooter all around. Coupled with an ALG trigger, and it was hard to put down.

Biggest disappointments were my '93 model M1A Scout, and Armalite AR10. The Scout had feeding problems last time I had it out, so I tried a different mag and different ammo: still a single shot rifle. Won't strip a round from the mag unless you rack the bolt yourself. The Armalite was only marginally better, still a two shots and stovepipe/FTF/FTE rifle. Having it to do over again, I'd have spent the money on an SLR104fr (or two), and several mags for each. What a great little rifle.

The two heavies are about to be replaced.

Built by Citizens Armory out of Mexico Missouri. They made the receiver. All matching Bulgarian parts kit, and they matched the serial number on the receiver.
