The Chinese are good rifles. But if you buy one make sure it comes with magazines, they are expensive. Some guys say that you can get other magazines besides Norinco mags to work, it hasn't been my experience.Dont waste money on century or other us made hit and miss aks. Get a Chinese Mak in .223 for about $500 or get an orginal Chinese 84s for about $900. Check the Sturm nfa boards or gunbroker.
