It is a well balanced rifle (more-so than the AK), easy to strip, and the mag release is easier to manipulate.

There isn't a huge accessory market but the parts that are available seem to be very functional. There's a few headed my way and more planned so we'll see.

Here's some pictures. I'll get a range report w/i the next couple days.
Sweet rifle. Looks like it's the style of Mikhail Kalashnikov's first rifle the AK-46, the one he made before the AK-47.
