    Some things just go together, like:
    Ice cream and apple pie.
    Monday night and football.
    AKs and Glocks.

    This past Saturday, I went to the gun show in Dallas at Market Hall.
    While there, I visited the table of T.R. Graham to have some work done on one of my weapons.
    T.R., if you don’t know, is one of the premier Glock armorers.

    However, on Saturday I found out that T.R. also builds high quality AKM rifles. He had a Polish AKM with him that he had just recently completed and it was a beautiful, well balanced rifle (its owner was to pick it up later that day). Both the fit and finish were excellent. The metal was a deep, rich black and was complimented by black synthetic furniture and a side folding stock. Accessories included the sling, cleaning kit, etc.

    If I ever have an AKM built, T.R., based on what I have seen of his work will be the one to do the building.

    If you have any questions about your AK or your Glock, T.R. can be contacted at [email protected] or by phone at 713-944-3581.

    BTW, other than being a satisfied customer for many years, I have no business or personal affiliations with T.R.

    A big +1 for T.R. Graham. The guy knows his stuff. He is a real stickler for details. He makes sure that everything is right before he lets a gun out the door.

    Watching some WWII video in the south Pacific, I thought the same thing.

    An AK plus a Glock 21 sidearm sure would have been welcome in that environment.

    AK's and Glocks

    AR15's and 1911's.

    Guess which pair I like and which I don't?

    My top 3 guns to have- and 3 of the first 4 guns I bought- were an AK, a Glock, and an 870. That's a damn good trio right there.

    Perfect combo. I got an AK, a couple of glocks, and a mossy 590.

    After shooting my first AK a few months ago, I'm seeing the popularity of this rifle. I can see why, given its larger round and cheaper ammo price. Besides, it's a tough gun that can handle all types of environments.

    Glock and the AK definately go together!

    Definitely it's an AR15 + 1911 vs. AK47 + Glock combo. The all-american vs. the so-called "terrorist" weapons..hehe. I have both combo weapons but my favorite is the latter one..:supergrin:

    Well, no. My AK trigger is highly modified and feels as good as any match grade trigger I've ever felt. Very smooth with a very short take-up and no over-travel. My Glock trigger has also been upgraded and creates a lot of shocked looks on faces when they try it out.

    If you have to have true precision shot at 300meters then an AR is what you grab, if you need utter reliabilty and ruggedness along with combat accuracy at modern combat ranges, then the AK-47 in any form or configuration is what you grab along with any caliber glock, i will gladly take this combo

    I do not own an AR, but do own a couple AK's (and have owned several others). The Gordon Tech had the best trigger, but it is still a LONG pull compared to say my Weatherby bolt action.

    You can significantly shorten the trigger pull on an AK. Mine (measured at the trip of the trigger) is 2.15mm.
