    I just got Guns & Ammo mag in the mail and there's an add by Kentucky Gun Co. that includes an AK in 7.62X39 that take 30rd mags, has a chrome-lined barrel and has a quad rail for $489.99 and free shipping.
    I can't find the rifle on their web site to get further info. I'm wondering what the underlying rifle or build is and if this is a good deal.
    I already have a Norinco that I have made somewhat tactical. I've been doubling up on rifles and handguns so that I have 2 weapons that will take the same mags if necessary. I know some will advise to just get an Arsenal, but they are more than I want to spend on an AK unless I get a really good deal. One LGS has an Arsenal for over $1,500 :wow:.
    Anyone know about this specific Kentucky Gun Co. AK?

    That seems like a great deal, i was going to say the barrel may worry me, but i see that it is a cold hammer forged barrel, which would make me guess it was imported like that.

    Great deal I think.

    I wonder how long it will be before they get another shipment I'm ready to order it now, I don't really want to backorder though.

    Well, I just went and ordered one. They said they are getting in 400 and they should be in this week. I don't think they'll charge my card till they ship. I wonder if I can get a red dot sight that will co-witness with that set-up?

    Shoot an email to Troy at Midwest Industries (thier contact info goes to him). He is really helpful and almost always answers right away. I love their rails and have gotten nothing but great service from them.

    I may give it a try, but there's already a propriatary rail on the M-10. Your set-up looks great though.

    Great I will be sure to keep an eye out! Soon as they get some I'm going to place a order.

    Think I should go ahead and backorder or will I be safe on waiting 400 is an awfully lot I dont think they will sale out that fast?

    I called up Kentucky Gun Co just now and they said it will be around 2 weeks before they get a shipment in.

    I plan on back-ordering one tonight.

    No. In the unlikely event it gets lost, I'll make a claim against UPS or FedEx.
