Got my rifle this morning 11-25-15. Overall the rifle is a VERY SOLID BUILD, Very tight. only problem i saw out of the box was pitting on the sight block and rust on the center support rivet (salt is used to treat the receivers, CLEAN YOUR GUNS WHEN YOU GET THEM! Especially ak's that fixes rust seepage issues. cleaning took care of that) 1-10, this rifle is a solid 10. Ak's are not like ar-15's, they are surplus parts kits and companies like century build them into functioning firearms. Minor blemishes are to be expected. Tapco g2 trigger is a plus! i cant wait to get out and fire off some rounds in the desert this weekend.

Buds service was great as usual, the rifle on the other hand was kind of disappointing. First off there was rust around all the rivets inside and out, thankfully it's not pitted but the stock on the other hand was probably one of the worst pitted underfolders I've ever seen, century must think a coat of parkerizing will fix it right up. Also there is no sling which I expected, there's no cleaning rod and it comes with two crappy tapco mags, was hoping for at least one surplus mag. On the plus side it came with a chrome bolt carrier. So once I buy a couple surplus mags, a cleaning rod, and a new stock I will have almost $700 in the rifle, do yourself a favor and buy a DDI underfolder.

Hats off to Buds customer service!! As always the buying process went smoothly and speedily.The underfolder i got was in excellent + condition.I had no canted front sight like others get that i heard of.Maybe Century fixed this problem.There was none of the "3rd position" safety allowing it to fire either. Fit and finish are superb and i could find no scratches or mill marks even under my closely looking for them.At the range i put 3 75 round drums through it and had no malfunctions of any kind whatsoever.

I doubt that any underfolding stock AK ever left a Soviet factory in as pristine condition as this one. The parkerizing is better than anything that I had in my arms room as an Army officer. The stock locks tight. A bit too tight in fact but I am sure that a little lubricant and wear will loosen it up a bit. I had to use the palm of my hand to push in the button the first few times to open the stock the button was so tight. All of the fixtures are as nice as I have ever seen. The fit and finish are excellent. I can hardly wait until I have the time to take it out and use it.

Sweet Mother of God!... Now I understand... What Mary felt when she held the baby Jesus for the first time. This rifle is AMAZING! There isn't a concrete block, or stone... or piece of sheet metal, or anything on my property that hasn't been tested by this fine instrument. Bud is my favorite - haven't been sold a lemon yet. This weapon shoots accurately and without issue, straight out of the box. A fine purchase - stop thinkin' 'bout it and get you one.
