I'm contemplating purchasing an AK-47, but I know absolutely dick about them. I've been perusing the interwebs, and Century Arms seems to be everywhere. Are they any good, or should I look for something else?
They kind of got a bad rap because of some sloppy work early on, but IMO they've cleaned up their act, and done a lot to obtain better parts. Do yourself a favor and get a Tantal by Century. You can find them online for cheap, and they're GREAT guns. Ammo is also way cheaper when it comes down to it, and available in crazy high quantity.
