AK-47

My sister in law Meredith bought this gun awhile back and asked if we could work it over. We came up with a custom olive drab green metallic ceramic finish and applied it after the gun was cryo treated. The front quad rail is by Osprey and the gun has an ATI adjustable AR buttsock. A new rubberized pistol grip (with sealed storage compartment) was installed along with a new style side scope mount and red dot scope. Up front it has a slant muszzle brake and a pivoting vertical grip. All of the controls were coated in a flat black ceramic as well as a mag or two. It truly did come out nice. This gun is very popular at the gun shows we show it at.

As a military weapon the AK is in a class of its own. This one happens to be a WASR10 and I'll tell you why I like these Romanian guns so much. They are one of the lightest (if not the lightest) AK's around. I do not mind carrying one all day due to its carbine length and light weight. Once you start adding all of the gadgets and a loaded magazine, the weight does start to pile up. The AR15 is still lighter though. I have personally witnessed one dropped into a bayou near the shore and it was retreived covered in mud (filled too). After a quick field strip and heavy gunk removal the gun went to work without any troubles.... it still had Louisiana mud and whatever else in it. They are closer range - heavy hitting guns and are a blast to shoot. I have carted spare ceramic floor tiles to the shooting grounds and made shards out of them with an AK-47. The ammo is still cheaper than that for an AR15 and that makes it easier for me to blast away for fun.

Wow,  John I was truly blown away when I first set my eyes on my AK47 after putting it in your hands.  John ,  I  was so excited about it  I could not wait to show it off. I love every thing that you have done with it . The colors are amazing .  As a professional  you know what looks good, you know guns inside and out.  Anyone who puts their gun in your hands will be exstatic, with your singnature touch on it.  John over time I have seen you restore katrina guns , blue guns, old rusted pitted guns, very old guns with missing parts , restored ,fixed brought back to life.  And all of the customers were so every thankful to you, They were astounded at just how awsome your work  really is.   John , all of your hard work has paid off gun after gun.  Every gun that you have worked, coated , fixed have all come out like a million bucks. John , you do quality work and anyone who looks at the photos on your website or  anyone who attends the gun  show and visits on targets table can see in person the quality ,detail , hand hardwork that you put into each and every gun.  John , with all of the customers guns that you have worked on can testify that  you  john-: On Target, is the best of the best.

                           John , thanks again for all of your hard work , time, effort that went in to my gun.  I truly appreciate it.

Thanks , kev

Can't wait to go shooting.  Also,  taking the  advanced level one class was the best.  I recomend it to everyone.  And  to all of the women out there  take the Advanced Level One Class.  You will not regret it.  It is a great challange, skillfull , and awesome . Check out the video  under Extras .  On Target also offers, one on one training at the range with John.  Which I have taken  several classes  and I feel that it had helped me get to where I am to be able to move up to taking the level one class  in which I passed The Level One Class. My first class was taking the Concealed Carry Class with on target.  I have really grown with on target. John is professional and no one should miss out on the opportunity to Grow With On Target.  Ladies with no experience or who have experience don't miss out  call  ON Target - John is a NRA Certified Gun Instructor and is The Best of the Best.  You can call at (504)467-2223.    


  Kev,  you did great at level one.  See you and Will at level two.
