I purchased a Bulgarian AK-74 from Centerfire Systems (Nodak Spud 2 and a Tapco trigger) and it took all of about 30 seconds for ti to become one of my favorite rifles. I put an inexpensive scope (my old eyes need the glass) and siderail mount on it and routinely shoot about 2 inches at 100 yards with the silver bear or the even cheaper surplus Russian stuff. I've got some Wolf that I want to run through it and I've been trying to track down some of the Hornady stuff that's supposed to be floating around.
I have yet to have an failure to fire, feed or eject, and I have to tell you I'm pretty rough with my firearms. If it can't handle the abuse I don't want it.
This is a solid, no frills, inexpensive rifle thats better than the price tag would indicate.
