I have not had a single failure of any kind, including about 200 rounds right out of the box, and many since.

Century had some issues with canted sights and a couple other things a while back (5 yrs??) that were related to imported parts. This gun is built here with American parts, and Century has fixed their old issues. As you mentioned, multiple reviews have been very positive.

I'm happy to post pics. Give me an hour......
There latest ad says 100 per cent American. Is that true - lock stock and barrel? Who makes the receiver?

According to Century, and every review and video I've seen, every part, including the milling of the receiver, is made in the USA. Where exactly, I'm not sure.

Here's an excerpt from a review Gun Digest did:

Enter the all American-made AK! Thatís right, a rifle where all the parts are made here in the USA. No need to worry about 922(r) compliance, because that only applies to imported rifles.

I like that. It's about time they did it.

I'd like to pass along what I just read (those who read the Shotgun News already know). There is a new Saiga MX107 that has a counter-balanced recoil reduction system. The writer who shot it at Izhmash reports that it works like nothing ever before.

I'm a paycheck away from getting this rifle any flood of information on
this rifle would be helpful

I can't decide between these two finishes on the wood I was thinking of getting the blonde and refinishing it in red

Edit. does anybody know how thick the receiver on this rifle is? just a random thought

Has been regulation 1mm so far.

The wood stock is a touch heavier than plastic. It will give you a margin in recoil management. The rifle, being a 7.62, will also look closer to the original, especially when refinished.

I like the look of that milled receiver. Seems like a lot of extra weight to carry around if one is going for the pistol configuration though......

'American made' does little for me when talking about a Russian gun.

Here is the consolation. No AK based pistol is a Russian gun. It is a commercial creature of western markets.

I figured they would've done 2 mm but thank you for the answer

Finally got one and I must say I do like it. I did have some issues with the rounds chambering at first but I took it apart and cleaned the gun and it functioned fine. the rear site was off of the gun entirely! when I got it I just centered it and it seems to be holding a zero. lucky I guess? I noticed that it shoots High at 50 yards I don't have a tool to fix that but any good rifle operator should be able to account for that😏
The only thing that I noticed that wobbles is the gas piston tube .

I can field strip this AK-47 variant in 43 seconds with putting it together! blindfolded takes me about two minutes. anyways I like the gun I'm very happy I purchased it
