Owned several AKs. But the AMD-65 to me is the best. Simply because of the Muzzle brake is really bad looking to go along with the balls of fire(only when using Tula ammo).
I did upgrade with a cheek riser on wire stock which made it more accurate; also put a quad rail on it,
Scorpion pistol grip,5 position fore grip, and put some OD Green paracord design through the stock.
Read other reviews about the peeling paint but mine is in great shape and shoots well with no issues.
