I ordered this guy from Classic Arms, and it arrived today. I've wanted an AK-47 ever since I got into guns. This last year, I zeroed my credit cards, and due to a tax refund I totally forgot about, I could finally afford one! Classic occasionally sells hard chrome guns, and I fell in love with the hard chrome AK. (Note that hard chrome is different from standard chrome plating. In fact, the chrome lining the barrels of most AKs is hard chrome.) Anyway, Classic had a couple available this last week, so I finally did it.

Due to impossibly cold weather here in Iowa and the fact that I'm still recovering from the flu, I won't be able to take it out to the range until this weekend, but I can't wait. I have 1000 rounds of some non-corrosive Brown Bear just sitting on my floor taunting me.

That's kinda cool, in a weird way. I dig it!

I don't know what to say...Congrats!

tadbart 02-08-2011 19:22

sk65 02-08-2011 19:23

Very cool!

musicman10_1 02-08-2011 19:24

Congratulations. I like it.

Thanks guys! When I was doing research before buying, a lot of people seemed to ask questions about Classic Arms' hard chrome AK, but most of the answers were just conjecture because not many people owned one. Figured I'd actually post some worthwhile pictures. :)

Nice...

Man, that looks great especially with bayo attached. I saw them on Classic Arms' site and wanted one bad. Still do.

TheGrimReaper 02-09-2011 09:33

Different. but I like it!!!

RedHaze 02-09-2011 11:24

Met a guy in iraq that had one of those, with an airgun scope zip tied to it. We told him he was the coolest guy ever.

BBJones 02-09-2011 11:56

different strokes.

stopatrain 02-09-2011 11:59

carloglock19 02-09-2011 15:27

Glockdude1 02-09-2011 15:32

I like it......

:cool:

-gunut- 02-09-2011 16:03

Man that thing is ugly :freak:

farmer-dave 02-09-2011 17:23

I like it, it really cuts down on the maintenance when the barrel and the exterier are hard chromed. It looks good with the wood.

What? You didn't take any pictures??

drdriller 02-09-2011 18:17

Nice.

Navitimer 02-09-2011 18:20

Nice my man - i'm not used to seeing AKs in chrome but it looks pretty cool. Enjoy your new rifle!!

RED64CJ5 02-09-2011 18:35

That is different and cool. Nice taste.

Wriggly 02-09-2011 19:15

He is messing with us guys. He has stripped off the finish, probably getting ready to duracoat or parkerize that bad boy. Nice try there Fangs404. :supergrin:

Fangs404 02-13-2011 17:43

Finally got out to the range today! Put 120 rounds through it, and it ate them like candy. I love this thing.

Pull that thing into your shoulder. You're making it look like a .30-06!

Yeah, form sucks here, but this is mainly just to show it in action. I was shooting at a box on the ground about 15 feet in front of me. I'll get a proper target setup before I head out next time.
