    When looking at WASR-10's, they often have the bobbed off muzzle with no bayo lug. If a WASR has a bayo attachment and a muzzle brake is it automatically a GP or 10-63? Or does a GP or 10-63 say WASR GP or 10-63 on the side where it says WASR 10? I have had both kinds and they both just say WASR 10 on the side.

    WASR 10/63s come in the "military variant" and the neutered versions(no bayo lug, no threaded muzzle, sometimes no scope rail). I don't think they have any distinguishing lettering on the rifle.

    So, if a WASR has a bayo lug and a muzzle brake it is considered a 10-63? or a GP? or not?

    on the left side of the receiver beside the front trunnion, mine reads:

    GP WASR - 10/63
    Cal. 7.62x39mm

    So i guess it's both?:headscratch:
