    Classic had a good reputation on other boards. Never bought from them before. As for the Duracoat, I'm not a fan.

    Not sure that RIA actually had a factory duracoat. Their finish is similar, but more of a parkerized one. I'll have to dig more on that.

    Looks like a great price if Classic is still getting good reviews.

    I've used duracoat, and had no problems with it at all. Depends heavily on prep work to the surfaces.

    I don't see what is so "special" about the duracoat

    I purchased an AK from them late last year. The gun was exactly as advertised & quick service/shipping. I would buy from them again based on my experience.

    Yeah assuming all of their claims are true, that's a steal. I'd jump on it. .... Jump on it! Jump on it! .... Now that song is stuck in my head.. :rolleyes:
