    daewoo rifles

    After many 5.56 Semi Auto rifles I have owned both DI GAS Stag, RRA, DPMS, Colt, BM, Sabre Defense and many more and Piston, POF, Adams Arms, Stag. I have come to a conclusion that the Koreans got it right in the 1980's.
    Externally similar in appearance to the AR18, its bolt carrier group is derived from the American M16 rifle but only some of the parts are interchangeable. The gas operating system is derived from the AK-47, and is consequently different from that of the M16
    My Daewoo K2 shoots great for a Battle rifle, accuracy is 1 MOA, 18 inch 1/7 twist barrel with SS109 ammunition it has a folding stock, takes standard AR mags and is not a DI converted to a piston as many have done.

    In my mind it is one of the 5.56 battle rifles (not Precision rifles)


    I have gone away from gas DI guns modified to be piston guns, the Scar 16 and Daewoo were made ground up to be piston guns



    and yes parts are available in the USA, IE: the quad rail on mine and the 90 Degree Safety.

    so for those looking for something different and reliable, look at the woo.

    FYI DR200 series rifle are 1/12 twist, not the rifle I am referring to, look into the K1/2 or AR100 models but check twist rate as they tend to very

    now I will admit my 18 inch 3-gun AR DI is more accurate then the k2, but only by 1/2 moa, shooting at the distance the battle rifle is designed for, it is just fine.

    Thanks for the picture of the insides, I've always wanted to see the guts of it.

    It has always puzzled me how Korea got the piston AR right more than 20 years ago and so many fail to do nowdays. And they also got rid of the giant buffer too.


    Maybe buffers and piston don't get along afterall...

    That's a pretty good facsimile of how the ROK Marines are currently configuring their K-1A1s.

    Bit of a bump, but I'm glad to see a Daewoo again. Where did you get the parts to add a rail to your rifle? How much weight did it add?

    very interesting rifle. I am a bit ashamed to admit, but I have never even heard of these until seeing this thread.

    If only the charging handle knob wasn't so fragile.

    BTW, the K-1 is a DI, not a piston rifle, I own both.
    My brother saw Deliverance and bought a Bow. I saw Deliverance and bought an AR-15.

    I would LOVE to see somebody make a Product-Improved K-2 with the past thrity years of updates like a picatinny rail on the upper and a full-length rail handguard plus other minor upgrades.
