    On a newstand near you! Just got it yesterday evening. Review forthcoming, but overall, I'm liking it. great companion to the last Complete book of the AK.

    *****NEW*****REVEIW*****

    Overall - I like this better than the last All AK rag. Together - a great set with some pretty full coverage of great topics. OK - here is the review thus far:

    Century Bulgarian AK74 - good review

    AK/Krink as a PDW - ok. A lot of general PDW discussion. However - in combination with last year's 7.62 power curve from shorter barrel info - great combo!

    Spettznaz - Who doesn't love a good Spetsnaz article? Nice special forces overview

    Phasing out imports - Intriguing theory...

    Soviet Starlight - Haven't read. Why not? Like I'll ever have a Soviet starlight scope...

    Personal protection AK - Filler article. AK's are good in the trunk. Really? However - as mentioned, I'm looking for that rear sight!!!

    Hornady Ammo for AK - VMAX baby! Nice review.

    Trigger Article: MAG IS WORTH THE PRICE FOR THIS ALONE!!!

    Desert DMR/Tabuk - alone, just a footnote. But combines well with the PSL for a long range AK overview.

    Afghan AK's - Nice if you are headed there...or shopping for an AK there.

    Suarez - good

    AK handguards. "Handy" article, but not much

    Feeding the AK - Heaven for the Mag geek. This plus Carlo's post is really all there could possibly be to know. Seriously. Great article - if you are into this. Obviously written for Carlos...10+ pages on mags + identification, etc...

    VZ 58 vs AK - Awesome comparison. Except you'll have to get a Vz...

    Accessorize your AK - filler

    AK CLones - Interesting AK copy history. Zzzzzzzzz

    PSL - Nice coverage - but not much new info.

    Reality Training - haven't read yet

    Buyers guide - weak - but hit's key areas

    FMJ vs HP vs SP - Excellent to see a jello comparison. I KNEW SP was awesome - this proves it!

    I especially like the "Personal Protection AK"... the replacement rear sight looks like Da Bomb!

    Hiding change from my wife so I can get one... if I can get some work, then I can get it sooner!!! :rofl:

    Great Issue!

    I'm no magazine collector, but that article was fascinating. The PDW article was fantastic, and I've never wanted a class III firearms more in my life. The article on Russian special forces didn't have much focus on weapons, but it was very interesting from a historical perspective (and well written). Lots of filler articles in there, but most had an accessory or ammo option that caught my eye. Good stuff, and a worthy second edition in the series.

    The 7.62 ammo article in the first, and the Arsenal SLR107U article, plus the PDW are a great triple-shot of stuff. What's a PDW all about, why is 7.62 great out of shorter barrels, and a choice bit of Arsenal gear.

    coworker brought it to work this week, and have been reading it. pretty interesting, and the psl article is gonna help me out a bit, since i just purchased one.. just gotta wait to get the replacement scope back, since the one that came in was not working correctly
