Some folks swear by the WASR and have no issues, but if you're looking for a more collectible piece as a hand-me-down, there are lots of better options. What does WASR stand for? What a $h!tty rifle!
Got lucky with this one no canted sights, no canted gas block, magazines lock up right with no wobble, no metal shavings in the mag well or chamber. Wanted something I could shoot, and not worry about destroying a collectable. So far it hasn't failed me.

Granted early on there were some issues, mine is dated 2018, and had none of the issues that were common on the earlier ones. Maybe I got lucky or they cleaned up their act.
