Final Thoughts

All things considered, this is truly one of the best AK-47s out there. It is sturdy, reliable, accurate and well worth the price.
The sights is one area where this gun actually fails compared to some other AKs on our list. They are comparable with standard, 300-yard AK-47 sights, like what you might find on the Century Arms Red Army. It can be mounted with optics, though, without too much of a headache. The barrel is also threaded for any muzzle to be installed. With a little customizing, this could be the perfect competition shooting rifle.

Where Was it Made?
All that said, this is still one of the most popular rifles in the world. For the dependability and the cost, you make a few sacrifices.
Finally, there’s the ergonomics. Remember that this is a generally mass-produced gun with a fairly out-of-date design. It can be a little more awkward to handle than other, more modern rifles.
The other major issue with this gun is the recoil. Because of the large gas port, the recoil is a lot stronger than what you would experience with other modern AKs. It’s not a huge issue, as long as you are prepared for it.
You can get ahold of this rifle in two different types. The standard is a 36.9 inch model, which looks a lot like the stereotypical image of an AK-47 you might have in your head. This one is easier to get, because it comes exactly as it was manufactured. The other option is a shortened 34.5 inch model. It comes with a shorter handguard and a shorter gas tube, and you can also shorten the barrel – but bear in mind, shortening the barrel of a rifle requires a pretty significant legal process.

Despite the heavier milled receiver, the gun is fairly light. It has polymer furniture with a sleek corrosion-resistant coating. A double-hook trigger allows you to fire the gun smoothly and easily.
