M&M M10-762B Buds Exclusive M10 with Phoenix Collapsible Stock
by Michael Z Date Added: Tuesday 20 November, 2012
My first experience with Buds and it was excellent. Timely shipping, excellent communication, the whole process was a breeze.

Now, about the rifle - I am so glad I got this version with Phoenix stock. AK makes their rifles with fixed stock with "one size fits all" approach, well guess what, it doesn't. Phoenix stock by itself if a $65 upgrade and in this combination it was only a $20 upgrade - already installed.
I’ve read a lot of reviews about the sister product m10-762 (also available at Buds) and opted for this model just because of the stock. In those reviews, ive noticed a pattern where folks were complaining about canted sights – not an issue with my rifle. Took it out shooting and was hitting 1-2 inch groupings at 50 yards no problem whatsoever. Keep in mind; I have very limited AK experience, so it’s pretty darn good in my books. Recoil was nominal, perhaps due to the upgraded stock, but also may be due to the fact that I had open mind approaching this rifle.
I am pleased with quality, but only time will tell for sure. The paint does scratch easy, but it’s not a Ferrari, so I am not worried about it. Was surprised to learn that receiver does not stay open and you can’t make it stay open. Tapco mag that came with the rifle fitted in no problem. Purchased 2 additional metal mags and they wouldn’t latch at first, but after a few attempts they bended into place and now work with no problems. Absolutely NO wobble, which was also a common theme with the sister rifle; in fact mags fit snug with a noticeable click.
Rails up front did heat up after 200 rounds of rapid fire at which point I switched to the tactical handle.
And here is the kicker – went to the gun show and saw a similar rifle up for sale and it was priced at $790… so much for a good pricing at a gun show.
Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase and highly recommend this rifle. The build is complete opposite of your typical soviet AK stereotype. Awesome rifle!
