I bought this after hearing about them from my friend. When I got it the blueing was not the best, but it is an AK. I took it to the range with zero cleaning, fired off 300+ rounds of Wolf/Tula/Bear, and it was perfect!! I've owned 2 WASRs in the past (they were great too, but this one feels so much better. It's shorter sight picture which I feel speeds up acquisition is cool too. I recommend this highly and will be purchasing more when and if they become available.
