Anyone got any positive or negative feedback on their AK rifles? Their prices are decent.
Any info is appreciated fellas!

Excellent guns. I sold a few last week. Very nice OOW receiver (not Hessee/Vulcan or JOEKING) built with a Polish kit. Very nice park finish and slant brake. But beware of Atlantic Firearms-they pack like shit!! Talk to the owner, Blaine Bunting and tell him you will buy only if he packs his damn rifles better. All of the guns I ordered had broken through their packages. On all of them, the front sight ears and the op rod handles had broke through their boxes. On one, the op rod had come clear through the outside box and was mangled on asphalt. Atlantic obviously does not give a shit how, or in what condition you receive your guns. There was no padding or peanuts in the box at all. I will never buy from those assholes again. But these are nice guns. They are made by Vector Arms. You can order directly from them.

Wow!! A lot of you have given me flack about what I said about Atlantic Arms. I'm telling you exactly what happened when I ordered from these jerk-offs!! I'm not doing it to ruin their business, but I was pretty damn pissed that I had to eat a $500 rifle because there is no way anubody will buy it with the jacked-up op rod it has. And yes-FedEx sucks. We all know that. But so should Blaine Bunting from Atlantic, and he should pack accordingly. He could take lessons from those dudes at CMMG. That dude knows how to pack so shit does not get messed up. Maybe if enough people complain about Atlantic, he will pack things properly rather than just throwing stuff in a flimsy box and sending it out.

I ordered one thru my FFL, the packing was awful, the magizine that was included flopped around and scratched up the side of the reciever.

It is a very nicely built AK, but the packaging sucks!

See? I was right!!! You're right about the magazine-one of mine was scratched up somewhat on the sides of the receiver.

I bought a WASR-10 a few months ago. It came inside two boxes, the first one being the factory box. The factory boxes are shoddy, but that's why it came in a second box with packing.

Mags were individually wrapped in newspaper.

No complaints here.

I have emailed Blaine a few times and he has been always very responsive. A lot more then I can say for some of the other gundealers out there. Has anyone tried to deal with Toad? I just ordered a couple of rifles so we will see what arrives. But I will give him the benefit of the doubt until I see it.

I read AZ's original review post, and I don't think it was 'nasty'. It had some positives, some negatives. Actually, after reading it, I was more inclined to purchase one.

take care,
Tec
