Well I am impressed, I have shot about 300 rounds of Tulammo and Wolf, some old Norico ammo also some silver bear and it has performed flawlessly with the 2 mags that came with it and the other 3 I purchased/ Those are 2 Thermold mags and a Magpul mag. I have coming soon 2/20 round mags also by Tapco.
Pros: Out of the box the rifle shot true, sights where fairly on at 50-65 yards. I cleaned it up and went to the range in the snow and cold, thought that was the proper way to shoot a AKM 47 rifle, cold crappy weather. This rifle is great, functions like a AKM should, No FTF FTE's stove pipes nothing, The more I shoot it the better it gets, and everything was true and straight upon inspection at my FFL.
Price was another PRO on this rifle.
The pistol grip had to go, was way to small for my large hands, put on a Magpul MOE AK grip
I also replaced the muzzle device that was on it, got a Tapco slotted muzzle brake, still have the old one and switch out from time to time.
The biggest CON of them all, that butt stock, the cheek slap is crazy if you don't hold it just right. I am looking at other options out there but not many. I really love the performance of this rifle but that butt stock if not held in the proper placement will smack the heck out of your cheek. I was told by Century Arms when I contacted them about it, they told me that here in mid April they are coming out with a Warsaw style butt stock for this rifle. It will be wood also and have the some wooden colors. I have also looked into a M76 butt stock for it but they are usually always out of stock and either the wrong color or I would have to stain them myself.
In all great rifle and I would buy it again without hesitation. Shoots great and true, love the wood look but have been thinking about getting something different in that department also,
I would recommend this rifle to anyone out there looking for a great quality AKM for the this price point.
