Here's some of the attention to detail and quality of the lowly Daewoo...

Nothing wrong with the Daewoo -- I've got both the DP-51 and DH-40. Fine, reliable pistols. The "fast fire" feature is innovative and has been copied somewhat in pistols like the H&K USP Compact LEM and P2000. The Daewoo didn't seem to catch on here in the US....probably because the automobile's reputation tainted the gun buying public's view.

However, the Daewoo is the military issue weapon of the South Korean forces. Designed and built for combat in mind, it is a strong, relaible firearm with adequate accuracy. I think I paid around $250 for each one -- a bargain in my opinion!

Yep... ain't NOTHING wrong with the "lowly" Daewoo.
I dunno, but I believe the entire "cheap" myth began when they began importing the Daewoo military rifle... sort of a hybrid between an AK and AR, similiar to the Galil.
This is an EXCELLENT weapon and uses AR mags. At the time, they were selling for far less than an AR, or comparable rifle... and then the flood of AKs came in at a price just a bit lower.
Folks began thinking the rifles were roughly equivalent in quality simply because the price was similiar.
Boy, were they ever wrong!

I like their 5.56's. They've taken the best features from the AK, AR, and FAL. Even the postban is ok if you get an Ace stock.

The coolest looking is the preban K1A1, a semi version of their sub.

The postban DR-200 with Ace can be found for 6-7 hundred, well worth it.

The Grip screw bushings are kinda poorly mounted. I used Super Glue to keep em from backing out. I lightened the hammer spring and it is a great gun. Reasonable accuracy, and looks great. Going to have Jack do the slide and it will be a one of a kind gun. oh and don't put the safety on when the slide is off. The slide is the stop for the safety. The detent and spring will fly away! Had to search with my magnet all night for that darn thing...

Look unless you are a little old blind Chinese man don't call me Grasshopper..... until you have tried some of my BBQ Ribs from said BBQ grill! :wink: HEHE I like to take pictures there because the lighting is good and you can't see the rest of my property. The rest is not a pretty sight! BTW I am more mexican than red neck, but mom is from Upstate New York. Does that make me a Redish Brown Neck?

We used to be able to but there are houses with in the 1/4 mile now so it ain't legal any more. My uncle had a place out east of town that we used to shoot off the porch at. Remember one time we had his ex wife come screaming that she could not cook with all the gun fire.... we then had to move out to the front yard.
