Send it back. If they can't put it together right the first time, they should just stop trying. Fucking Century...

I managed to whack the sights straight with a rubber mallet. Everything turned out well with the sights and all. But I have other troubles now.


I went to the range and shot 80 rounds through it. I had multiple FTF and FTE's. They sent me a crappy ass magazine that the rounds want to lay side by side on.I couldnt even use that magazine. I purchased a yugo BHO that works fairly well but still had the FTF's and FTE's.

I think Im going to return this back to JG sales and forget about getting an AK since this is my second attempt at owning one and Ive had trouble with both. Something is trying to tell me to not have one. Not to mention also that none of the numbers on this thing match either. Im kinda dissapointed.

Good luck on that. Just a FYI but most of the military Yugo's only had the bolt electro-penciled matched to the serial number of the rifle. All the other parts had a P/N put on them that many confused was a s/n.

If this is a Century assembled Yugo, I would contact Century first. They are usually pretty good of correcting it and/or swapping out with a new rifle.

Your expectations of a "matching" rifle are lofty goals IMHO.

Last post for me in this thread. Decided to sen dit back to JG for a full refund and put that towards getting a new AR built. I would like to have both eventually but I wont buy an AK unless i can test fire it first.


Good luck guys.
