    If it's better than the Century offerings I'll give it a serious look.

    So the going rate for a new AK pattern is about a grand? That is steep compared to AR clones.

    Back then:
    They were always worth $1000 or more in value/workmanship, the US consumers (back then) were were just enjoying AK pricing because they were made cheaply and imported. Every one of them could be used in war.

    Today:
    US producers discovered that it is expensive to produce a good copy AK cheaply and tried to make US made modified clone AK's at consumer acceptable AK price values, and basically made crap. None could go to war.

    AR's are the cheap wonders, because you can slap together a "good enough' quality example from parts at home for under $400. But I would not go to war with it, either.

    I didn't say it was an Arsenal, I said it looked like an Arsenal.

    It will shoot fine. But nothing compares to a comblock military grade made ak. That’s why a wasr is such and awesome rifle. Made in a military factory for over 70 years

    The reason aresenal ak are out of stock is because they are all going to the Middle East to fight in wars. These USA made no way.

    There are diff grades of com-bloc guns...the WASR or AMD, for example, is minimal qual, but the Saigas, Molots, Veprs....they are worth $1000+ in today's dollars.

    If you want a MODERN "western quality" AK with all bells and whistles, the IWI Galil ACE is top of the line, and only a few bucks more--- no more gambling, or waiting for the product line to meet expectation.
