I want to start by saying I have not shot it yet. However, I have function tested it and love it! First off, yes, it is a WASR. However, is DOES NOT have a canted front site or gas system. In fact, with out taking out my protractor, compass, and t-square, I can't detect any variation in them at all! The wood is very good. It is not silky smooth but there are no soft spots. In fact, it reminds me of the kind of wood one would get with a do-it-yourself black powder kit. A few minutes of sanding and a little stain or varnish would make it look AWESOME! The bolt carrier number matches to the rifle, even though the bolt itself is not a number match. The pistol grip is of the standard, plastic AK style. The metal finish is at least 90-95% if not higher. It was not covered in packing grease and clearly does have a properly installed Tapco G2 fire control group. The riveting is nice and all mechanics seem to function as they should. The only "complaint" I have is that it does not have an muzzle break, just a thread protector that is spot welded on. However, I think a fine touch with a proper tool would fix that problem. Is this the top of the line AK variant? No. Is it a decent entry into the world of AK? Yes. Basically if you just want an AK variant for a shooter, this would seem to fit the bill nicely. If you want a show piece, look at something else.
