OK, I'm seriously confused. Can someone please help me.

When cruising GunBroker and GunsAmerica, I see numerous references to CIA vs. CAI.

I know Century International Arms builds are bad.

I know that Classic Arms Inc. is good.

When I see CAI listed, should I assume Classic Arms Inc. or someone listing a Century gun with an improper acronym?

For instance, is this a Century or a Classic: AK-47 TANTAL CAI 5.45X39 NEW AK47 Folding

For another example, if I Google 'CAI guns', I get links [broken] on GunsAmerica which list Century as Century Arms International, not vice versa: automated google search to prove my point

Can anyone clear this up for me?

Thanks.

People just confuse the acronym. Classic arms' tantal's are Century built. Classic arms doesn't build or even import rifles to my knowledge, they just retail them. Any reference to CAI, CIA, Century ...is going to be a Century Arms built rifle.
