And its a quality one! Its like the ar15 in the ak47 world. Cheaper than arsenal but comparable quality if not better then the arsenal ak47s i wish my ffl would have some Centurion 39 sporter rifle check it out and post back tell me what you think
I will look into them. But when I hear somebody say " Just as good...but cheaper" they are usually correct. They are cheaper. No disrespect intended.
The recent Outdoor Channel production of Gun Stories on the AK said it best. " when going into space the US spent hundreds of thousands of dollars designing a pen that could write in space. The Russians used a pencil. "
The fact that American companies are designing and making an AK is good. But maybe not better. You can over think things.
Personally I don't like the AK. I prefer the AR platform. But you have to give them credit for deigning a machine that uses mud for grease.
