Us made (io Cesar) aks are horrible. Stay far away.

And canted sights rarely are issues. Nearly every AK is going to have it. Its canted gas blocks and trunions you need to be careful of. Also be sure to inspect the rivets that there is no gaps or largely deformed heads.

I wouldn't buy an AK that has the name Century Arms on it.. other than that, they're awesome guns!

Also, theres no way I would live somewhere that told me I couldn't have an AK..

I've got four Centurys, each works fine. One is a WASR. I think you're reading too many monkey tales.

I've had Century Aks and a Golani all GTG. And guess what, mine were to shoot not look at.

For just a little more money you can find a converted Saiga that has a Russian barrel and receiver instead of being a parts gun like the WASRs. I picked up a converted Saiga from Classic Arms in Feb for $479. It looks like they're sold out now but if you look around you can still find them.
