Any good? I am new to the AK world and think I would like to get one from this company. Any feed back on them would be great! As I said I am new to the AK and am not sure what to get. I am not so sure of what is what. I was looking at the SSR-85 C2 its kinda within the price range but not sure of its real quality. Any other rsuggestions would be great! Would like so spend no more than 650$.

Some people may be put off by the 1.6 receiver used but the same can be said for the OOW not being completely heat treated..Both work I now for a fact and work well..It will most likely be a great rifle it is a AK .. A one year warranty to boot, I would probably go with their Ohio Rapid Fire built German 47 but thats just me..I dont think you'll go wrong with any of Blain's ( Atlantic Firearms) stuff really..

No biggie as far as function goes.



now if we could find some chicom kits it would be close enough for me. did the Albanians use 1.5mm receivers on their AKM as well?

Absolutly none...I've found them harder to build on personally, but you dont have to worry about that since it's already built..
They function just as well..

I recommend Blaine and the rifle because I purchased this same rifle from him about 2 months ago. The only problems that I have was a loose fitting front stock that I have since fixed.

Not to hijack from Atlantic, but if your looking for a really good AK (74) under $650
Then see this thread in the EE

Just shot them an email about it and the vector clasic. What are your feeling on the Vector Classic? I think I like the reds rather than the blonds...... but they both look nice! Sucks that I can only get one for now.....

+1 on the Vector nice guns....

My friend recently purchased one from Atlantic. He was pleased with the cost and service. Since, I have had a chance to go to the range with him and shoot it. First impression is that it is very solidly built and a little heavier than a Sar. Trigger is crisp and breaks btw 5-6 lbs maybe. The heavier receiver, I believe, makes it a little more accurate than other AKs I have shot. The finish also is nice. You would not be disappointed in this gun.
