“The Wassenaar Arrangement Semiautomatic Rifles (more commonly referred to as the WASR series rifles) are export-oriented, semi-automatic versions of the Pistol Mitraliera model 1963/1965 (PM md. 63), itself the Romanian variant of the Avtomat Kalashnikova Modernizirovanniy (AKM) series of Kalashnikov rifles originally manufactured in Russia. The WASR series rifles take their name from the 1996 Wassenaar Arrangement, a multilateral export control regime (MECR), the purpose of which is to monitor and limit the proliferation of certain conventional weapons and dual-use technologies.
The WASR series rifles use a Romanian made receiver, but lack the dimple above the magazine well seen in the SAR series of Romanian AKM rifles.”
"Operational Characteristics: The Century GP1975 Rifle is a compact semi-automatic,
gas-operated firearm with a detachable box magazine. It is equipped with an adjustable rear sight, a post front sight and synthetic buttstock, pistol grip, and forearm. Its design makes it ideal for use by campers and hunters needing a short, handy rifle for carry into the field, and other users needing a compact and reliable firearm.
Century GP1975 Rifle Background: Your Century GP1975 Rifle, while designed for
sporting use, has as its design inspiration the famous AK-47 assault rifle designed by Mikhail Kalashnikov of Russia. Since 1947, when the AK-47 first entered Russian military service, over 30 million AK-47’s have been produced in countries around the world, attesting to the basic design’s durability and reliability. The essential design of the AK-47 (and thus your Century GP1975 Rifle although with some modifications) incorporates some of the best elements of previous, proven firearm designs. The double locking lugs, unlocking raceway, and trigger mechanism are clearly derived from the earlier American M1 Garand Rifle. The safety is surprisingly similar to the John Browning-designed Remington Model 8 rifle. The genius in Kalashnikov’s design is in the simplification of those contributing designs into a compact, reliable, and highly durable package adapted to mass production. The AK-47 can be seen as a fusion of the best the M1 Garand offered combined with certain aspects of the German StG44 rifle."
