Default IO INC AKs

Can anyone tell me anything about the IO Inc Aks that are made in North Carolina? I am wanting something for shooting hogs and an AK is what I have decided on. I was looking for something that is going to be reliable and accurate (as accurate as an AK can be). I have been doing some looking and have narrowed my choices to an IO Inc AK and a Saiga that I would convert. I know what the Saigas are capable of, but not the IO Inc. Does anyone have any first hand knowledge about the IO Inc?

Is there a company that makes 10 round magazines for the AK so I could deer hunt with it if I want to?

Thanks everyone.

For your first AK, why not compare it to an economical, sturdy, reliable builder's rifles in cost, cosmetics and function.

Century Arms has been manufacturing AK-47s for decades on U.S. made receivers, barrels and various other American made parts. There are many that knock Century, but I've owned and shot many and never got a "problem" rifle.

Look around:

J&G Sales

Centerfire Systems, Inc. - Your Home For Ammo, Firearms, Magazines, and Gun Accessories

AIM Surplus Home

Different guns, many options. Find what you want!

I agree w/ Diggs. Don't sell Century arms short. I have a couple rifles from IO. They are very nice indeed, but not any better than my century rifles.
