Great rifle but mine did not arrive with the same pistol grip advertised in the picture. The pistol grip it came with is scratched up and looks very used. Rifle also did not include cleaning rod which I was a little upset about. I just wanted it to look like how it does in the pic.

First one I received was damaged and had some severe corrosion, the second one is near perfect. Gun is nice and straight, I have run 250 rounds thru it without a single malfunction. The sights required minor adjustment, the only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because the shoulder rest part of the stock is loose but it's nothing that can't be easily fixed

talk about bang for the buck, well you cant beat this,,,, very well done, and yes stock is stiff and tight,,,, who wants a loose folding stock,,,, would you want a loose shifter in your sports car, I think not, this is a quality built firearm, ate everything I put down the pipe, no problem at all, nice aftermarket trigger, used my soviet 75 round drum and steel tula ammo,,,, chewed thru it like baby food,, get one now if you can you wont regret the purchase,,, if I got sent to the moon and could only take one firearm, this would be it,,,, and buds make this easy to do,,,, thanks buds

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.
