Awesome!...finally got the opportunity to take my CAI AK-74 that I bought from Bud's to the range yesterday...the gun functioned flawlessly!...the 5.45x39 round has very little recoil and the gun is very accurate...if you're looking for a good, inexpensive AK-74, this one is highly recommended! :)

Shot my AK-74 a few days ago. The rifle feels solid and well made. It functioned flawlessly using steel cased ammo. This caliber produces very little recoil. Less than an AR-15. Furthermore, the ammo is inexpensive if you buy in bulk. I defiantly would recommend purchasing an AK-74.

After looking around at other types of AK74's, Royal Tiger Imports, Waffen Werks (now DDI), Arsenal, and a used TGI at my local gun store, I decided to take a chance with the Century AK. When I received the AK there was no cleaning rod, bayonet or sling. The only thing it came with was a severely rusted oil bottle and 2 Tapco magazines. I was actually hesitant when purchasing a Century AK because I have seen some bad stuff come from Century, not that everything is bad, but there are some guns that come form them that are lacking. The gun that I received has a straight front sight and a straight gas block (no cants), but the rear sight is canted. Not too bad, but it is noticeable. I didn't fret too much over it because of the 1 year warranty Century Arms offers, and that if I was unable to zero it I could send it back to be fixed. The rivets on the gun looked good, and the stock and the hand guard didn't look bad for being used surplus. The only thing I saw that made me second guess my purchase was the rust! There was rust inside of the gun under the rails and on the rivet that runs through the gun. I was dissapointed about that, but I was able to remove some of it. The rust on the rivet is under the scope rail and is not easy to get to. Also, one of the Tapco magazines seemed to be defective. I was unable to chamber a round fully with the one magazine but the other magazine worked like a champ. The gun was AK accurate and I never had a malfunction. Other than the canted rear sight and the rust, the gun would be a good buy, however, I do not think this gun is worth the price I paid. It should be less for what I got.

Excellent Rifle!!! Didn't come with a bayonet or cleaning rod but the barrel, gas block and front sight were perfectly in-line with the receiver. Took it to the range and BZO'd my rmr and after 100 rds no FTF or FTE. so far I couldn't be happier. WELL worth the money you save not buying and Arsenal. If you're looking for a base model AK-74 to upgrade this is it.

Buds is good, but I think most of us want details of what was purchased, a range report, and why you rated it the way you did. Pros, cons, etc.
Here's my review of the Century AK sent to me:
The condition was listed as SURPLUS so that's what I expected. For me this will be a plinker. The wood furniture was a little bit nicer than the picture, but it is surplus condition.
It came with 2 Tapco mags, Tapco trigger, a broken chamber flag, and an oil bottle.
It did not come with a bayonet, manual, cleaning rod, sling, any rust, or a mail order bride.

Tapco trigger, which I like much better than a standard ak
AK Reliability : fired 100 rounds with 1 failure to fire due to a primer seated too deep, so that is not the rifle's fault.
Reasonable accurate
Low recoil, my sons loved shooting it.

It came with a very slightly canted front sight. It's barely noticeable and doesn't affect accuracy. In fact, its so slight, I hit a 4 inch target at 20 yards without any adjustment to the sights.
The description doesn't say chrome lined barrel, so I bet it doesn't have one.
It has the safety type that can release the hammer and cause an accidental discharge if rotated too far upward. Search youtube for more info and a fix.

I hereby give this rifle a 4 Star review mostly due to the safety, and I hope this review met up to your expectations.
