SAR-2 FOR YOU?

Post by Tom Doniphon » Thu Apr 24, 2008 7:22 pm

Do any of you guys have an SAR-2 from Century? I have talked with a local gun shop who said he had 3 WASR 5.45 guns and they did not work even after being returned for repair. I am interested to see if the SAR-2 model was reliable.

The WASR is supposed to be better since it 's receiver is made in Romania on the correct tooling. The SAR-2 is a Romanian parts kit on a Century-made receiver. The angry beavers are not paying attention.

I would say that any issues with the WASR are probably related to the magazine well. Century opens this up from a single stack sized opening and the mags are probably sitting at the incorrect angle or height....

I talked with a friend who said the WASR 5.45 may be set up to only feed from a single stack magazine even if the gun has been modified to accept double stack mags.

The SAR's, at least the SAR2 is built on a military Romanian receiver. Same receiver used on the AIMS-74; they just didn't drill the third axis pin hole. Other than the notorious trigger slap from using a Century FCG there are rarely any other complaints other than canted sights.

Thanks - started as a SAR2 - AIMS74 export version with the exception of the lower handguard. This version used a bulged AKM lower. I'll dig one up eventually :)
