    I have had good luck with my Chinese AK's. That said, there have been batches with brittle parts. The only chipped trunion I have ever seen was in a Chinese AKM, and so was the only broken bolt I have ever seen.

    My preference is for Bulgarian and Russian AK's. My single favorite is my Krebs AK74k, though that is about to change. I am in the process of buying a Class 3 shop. One of my top priorities is to have one of my AK74u kits built. That's my holy grail rifle.

    Norinco! I love my MAK90 with regular blonde furniture--no thumbhole stock!

  3. The only internal touching they did is replace the trigger group with the Tapco G2... Which is an upgrade and a great trigger
    There damn nice guns!

    Trust me, I'd buy a Norinco too if they were lower in price. Right now I couldn't justify one at all

    If that's all the tinkering done to the AMD then I can definitely dig it. No difference than the old Bulgarian SLR series (of which I have) imported with the US trigger mechanism then installed.

    Can you give the brother a link to whomever selling these AMDs? Because I understand that some are parts kits assembled in the US and that's not what I want.

    I built an AMD-65 from a kit and did it as an SBR. Assembled by Gary at Overland Industries. It is quite the piece. Like it a lot.

    That is the original wood. It's so nice I haven't changed it out yet. Thanks!

    Anyone else have opinions about the AMD? It seems like a pretty solid variant.
  10. Looking for more AMD feedback...

    What no yugo's? I love my 70b1 &70b2's.:cool:

  15. That's a great looking AMD! How is it without the VFG?
  16. Well i didnt like the angle of the original and it was a little hard using 30 round magazines. For me its comfortaable to use the magazine as a vertical grip and ive got long arms. But I'm doing some work to the original hand guard. Im milling off the tab where the original went and im gonna drill some holes in the bottom to attach a rail so i can have a normal vertical grip. Rails we attached to both sides. Five minutes of work and $10 dollars for the rails. Working in a machine shop is great for gun owners.
  17. I love my AMD. They are among the top in my book. Quality parts and better than normal accuracy. The 65 is a handy package and using the front grip with thumb pointing forward instead of wrapped around the grip is very comfortable!
  18. I'll post pics later on, but my $430 AMD looks awesome with the Tapco Bakelite 30 rd mags. She came dry, so I used Slip 2000. The Magwell is so tight, that the Tapcos fit without a hint of wobble. They are conforming to the magazine well, lol.

    I'm very pleased with it for the price. I hope to shoot tomorrow.
  19. Glad you are happy with it! I believe they are extremely underrated.
