IMG_1925 (1)

What goes into building a custom AK? Nick Bauer of Beeville Armory has some ideas

Beeville1

by Rob Kay Last year industry pundits predicted that 2014 would be the "Year of the AK". Unfortunately geopolitics intervene.  The Russian invasions of Crimea and the Ukraine let to the ban on imported Russian guns, which in turn roiled the AK market.

On Target Review: Headhunters Firearms HH762 (7.62x39) Upper

Headhunterse 7.62 4
