Then go home and cry at how quickly you just blew through $5 in 3 seconds with only a 10 round magazine.

Make sure to wipe your tears off your AK when you're done; they will corrode the steel pretty fast.

so e70s can suffer from bad A and B-pillar welds. Seems like it's mainly late-2011/early-2012build dates. Scary though. That's just as bad as an e46 subframe issue.

Skimmed through all the gun talk.

I love my .22 rifle. I LOVE it. If there was end of the world scenario, it might even be my gun of choice for some light protection and small game hunting because of the weight of the gun and plentiful ammo.

But for defense, I'd rather have almost anything else. Especially if I was trying to mount an assault or defend against my own government. Even the crappiest countries our army would fight would have Ak's or clones or surplus WWII weapons with much better effectiveness.

Is the gun lethal? Sure, it can be. Anything that punctures skin can be lethal. Is it effective? I would say no.

Yes they will. Nothing to say a corroded AK won't work though.

You're lucky that hundred shot of NOS didn't blow the welds on the intake!
