Have you shot it yet? What is the accuracy @ what distance?

I've only had it about a week and I haven't had the opportunity to take it out yet! The itch is unbearable. First impressions; it's built very well. Tight tolerances, quality feel, it appears to be a very well rounded firearm. I'll be sure to post a little review on this thread once I send a few down range...

This is a well built AK. Century got a reputation for its canted sights in the old days. Now the C39, with its milled receiver, is more solid than it's stamped competition and should last forever.

I have no idea how many rounds I have through my C39, but I do know that I've never, ever, had a malfunction of any kind. From Russian surplus ammo to Lapua, its been perfect.

I like the after grip, have you change the color or you buy it?

It looks like the furniture was replaced.

It is an FDE Hogue aftermarket grip and replaced the original plastic pistol grip...

I've heard of metallurgy issues with the gas piston and bolt groups... Something to keep an eye on. Better actual receiver and barrels than the RAS47 as well as quality of build, but you may wish to seek out spare bolt/BC/gas pistons.

I had a first gen c39 rifle and it seemed very well made in terms of tight tolerances and the fit and finish were great BUT the chamber was reamed so tight that I couldn't fire 3 shots consecutively in any brand or type of ammo. I was so disappointed that I appealed to the dealer I bought it from and received a refund quite easily...
