This AK is a good one in my opinion and a decent investment for the money. Not as good as a Norinco overall, but those are quite more expensive nowadays. I struggled between the 2 CIAs, the lighter machined romy reciever with CL barrel and this one. After reveiws I chose this one and am happy I did. I give this AK 4 stars because it does NOT have a chrome lined barrel (which I knew going in) and a couple other small issues. I have only ran 35 rounds through it so far, but it ate them up and was begging for more. I stopped because the barrel was getting very hot and didnt want to get it smoking. Just to note, I was using the Tulammo FMJ. I shot 20 rounds at 25 yards in the steel mag, checked target then came back and immediately shot 15 more in the plastic mag. All 35 rounds were in about about a 4 inch group or so, 5 max. I shot off a table with a very limited rest, actually just using the bottom of the steel mag against the table I believe. I did expect it to be a little tighter groups, but we all know the first time you shoot a gun, groups usually aren't that good until you get used to it. This is a very heavy duty AK and the folder is very tight and nice. It surprised me as it was quite pleasant to shoot with the underfolder stock, the main reason I believe this has to do with the heavier receiver and heavier grenade style front. I believe the nice tight underfolding stock helps a little also. Let me note, these are parts kits as you know and some look better than others. As I has waiting on mine which was $573 shipped from Buds plus transfer fee of course, I saw one at the gun show new. They were asking 649 and the kit they used on that one was a little rough before the CIA refinishing. I thought I hope mine is better and it was except for the rear sight being deeply pitted in one spot on what I call the slider, the thing which slides your rear sight up for longer range shooting. Does not affect function at all, just looks real bad when you notice it. Overall I am happy with my purchase and I wish they made these with CL barrels and about $50-$100 bucks more. However I will never wear this AK out I doubted, unless Z-Day or like comes, which I pray doesn't. I doubt I will ever put over 1000 to maybe 2000 rounds TOPS in it. One disappointment I did have was my gun only came with the cleaning rod, in the gun where it should be, and one plastic Tapco 30 round and one steel hold open 30 round mag (the good mag, I'm old school:). Others posted theirs also came with a sling and cleaning kit, which I was expecting. Overall a 4 star gun, but I am one who is hard to get 5 stars from. For that to happen whatever gun would have to be super fit and finish and just an overall great gun. Like others have said, this gun is built like a tank (meaning heavy duty to me) from my fairly limited knowledge of AK-47s.

Rifle is sturdy, acceptable lock-up of the folder with a bit of play but nothing to affect accuracy enough.
The polymer handguards are a bit loose and do heat up a bit after a magazine or two is fired from them.
Safety functions with the stock folded and magazines can be manipulated when it is folded as well.
Rifle functions acceptably with the few failure to fires possibly due to ammunition and possibly due to weak firing pin strikes (primers has been struck but did not appear to have a 'deep' strike.)

All in all a great AK that is fun to shoot.

Buds made my first (but not last) online purchase as smooth as the action on this yugo(see what i did there?). this thing is a beast compared to my buddy's saiga.! I have over 200 rounds down the pipe with no issue! definitely a grab and go gun. Jose USMC 0311

Paid about $600 for the rifle. I received a cleaning kit and 2 mags with my order. One old mag was covered on cosmoline the other a tapco. I believe I got a ok deal. The rifle is in good shape. The action had not been cleaned. I would not have bought this rifle if I had seen it first. Given another chance I would buy an arsenal AK47. I think they are cleaner / finer and of course more expensive. I have not shot this rifle.

This rifle has change my overall negative opinion of AK's. Heavy, accurate, reliable and lots of fun! Folding stock takes some getting used to but not uncomfortable, just wrap with black elastic bandage and it's good to go.
