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.

I love this gun !!! Really fun to shoot and after fixing some miner issues with the sights pretty accurate . Not thrilled with fore grip but i replaced it as well as the regular grips . Great gun for the funding .

I traded my Ruger MINI 30 for this rifle. I am very impressed with service and the rifle. This rifle is built like a tank . It's my first AK platform. I wish I had made this decision years ago. The trade process was easy and fast, and the gun is more than what I expected.

I love this rifle! Buds has been great with all of my orders and this is no exception. Rifle was in great shape when i received it except for having a small spot of rust on the safety selector. Easy fix. I then proceeded to change the plastic forend with wood and sanded and stained to my liking. This gun just shoots and shoots well. Sights barely needed any adjustment. It's ate everything I've fed it without fail. It's a little heavy but I knew that going in.

Had this gun on Bud's layaway. Service and shipping was excellent! However, for anyone wondering about the details on this exact M70ab2, it is pretty basic. Just comes in a big padded cardboard box with the rifle, two plastic Tapco mags (usually Century AK's include at least one steel surplus mag but not this time) & a small cleaning kit. No sling, no manual or any papers. Rear sights do not have the flip up night sights. The front sight has a flip up with an empty dot. Comes with the black, parkerized bolt carrier group, not chrome. Contrary to the picture on Bud's, it DOES have the thick 1.5mm receiver/RPK trunnion and comes with a surplus Yugoslavian M70 pistol grip instead of the newer style plastic one in the picture if that matters (I prefer the surplus grips for "authenticity") Sights were slightly canted, but not a big deal after adjusting the front post. It shot pretty straight, and it's an AK. Weighs around 9-10lbs fully loaded due to the thick receiver and heavy US made barrel. It had no stampings other than the standard Century markings on the US made receiver. The trunnion had no Serbian arsenal markings, only a 1988 date on it.

As far as function, it performed flawlessly right out of the box. Ate up the 200 rounds or so of cheap Tulammo I had without a hiccup. Very reliable. Swapped the plastic handguards with Yugo surplus wood and it is now my SHTF/fun gun. Neat AK! I'm happy regardless of my initial expectations to the lack of detailed spec description.
