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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
