The AES-10B has a good reputation on the internets, I did some research awhile ago. Solidly built, more solid than the WASR series, chromed heavy-profile barrel, 1.5mm receiver, ect. Some reported bad points are that the carry handle is weak/improperly welded on, and that it is delivered with a different bipod than prototypic. They do have a good rep for accuracy though, reports of <3" groups @100 yds are common. Just remember that it's almost 12lbs.
I'm very happy with my AES-10B's.
One of them is the best shooting x39 I own.
I was at a local shoot and an older guy I use to work with(@ 74 years old),seen it sitting
on my bench. He was just standing and looking(think drooling) at her sitting their looking nasty(she is BFPU finished).
I loaded a drum and set him up on the bipod. After 75 rounds and not a damn thing left on the range to destroy,he stood up
and had a smile ear too ear. He said that was the most fun gun he has ever shot.
As others have said, far from a sniper and was never meant for that role. In many cases gun stores are our own worst enemy when they call them something like that. If this is your first AK, just get a regular AK and go have fun. If all you do is shoot prone position or off the bench, the Romanian (or preferably a Yugo) is a cool gun. It just weighs too much to effectively shoot standing up for more than a few shots (but can be done).
I like mine a bunch. There are a few versions some have adjustable rear sight, some have carry handle. some don't. I think they are a good RPK 762... I got the one with the carry handle and not adjustable rear sight.. B2B
