While popping in for a visit to Get Some Guns to test out our Broadsword Rifle, I picked up a MagPul AFG for my Kalash. At Crusader HQ, I also applied a permanent Slipstream treatment to my AK’s bolt/carrier group. Slicked that up big time. AK’s are never to be considered a Slick Rifle… and this one is still not so much. However, compared to other AK’s… DAYUM. This is one SLICK freaking AK! I love it.
Okay, back to the AFG… I didn’t realize that Magpul now makes two versions of the AFG, the normal one and a smaller thinner one. For my AK, I went with the Regular Full Sized Magnum AFG. It fit really well. It looks awesome and feels awesome. I love it. Video review of it will be made soon.
I can’t stop playing with this AK now. I took it to work hoping I’d get a chance to run out to the range on my lunch break to pop some rounds, but that didn’t happen. Instead I pulled off the highway on the way home from work after close – after dark – and drove about 200 yards (honest officer, I thought I was 200 yards) down a dirt road. Blasted through about 40 rounds of 7.62x39mm. I wanted to shoot more, but it was pitch black and I had no targets… but man. That was fun. AK muzzle flash in the dark is fun stuff. The gun is nice and controllable and I find that the AFG helps me get into proper position naturally. I just naturally Vulture Down on the gun.
Did I mention that it looks sweet? Oh yeah. It looks awesome.
The AFG solves a problem with using a Vertical Grip. I have plenty of room to rock out a mag and rock in a new one. A VFG can block the mag from rocking. And I want to rock as much as possible… so there you go.
