Lightweight, Rugged, Classic, Practical and… Rugged (wait did I say that already?). All of these words perfectly describe the TEKKO Polymer AK-47 Integrated Rail system from Mission First Tactical. The fine folks at Mission First Tactical go to great lengths to create a product that will continue to change the way people think about AK-47 platform rifles and their use as a defense/tactical firearm.
At some point, you just get lucky. My future father in law letting me borrow his Savage Model 12 LRP in .243 WIN is one of those points. He bought the gun last year for long range target shooting with some varmint hunting mixed in for good measure. Unfortunately, his work schedule has been pretty insane for the last few months and he actually hasn’t had a chance to do much more than warm up the barrel and get it roughly sighted in. Listening to him recount the sad story of his ownership a few weeks ago, I (jokingly) offered to take it off his hands for a few weeks. To my surprise he replied, “Really? You’d do that for me? I just want to know what factory ammo works well with it, and make sure it’s properly sighted in.” Then he handed me about a hundred rounds of 58 gr. and 80 gr. Hornady V-Max and sent me on my way. Maybe I should buy a lottery ticket . . .
