Came in today at my local ffl. Bought it from Budsgunshop.com. I went ahead and accepted it. Here are some pics. I did not realize that it was canted until further inspection at home. The FFL were closing in 5min. and I left.






Came with two good steel mags. Here are the pics of the canted sights and possibly gas block.




I have not shot it yet. But should I go ahead and just contact CAI?

Wow both the stock and barrel are canted to the right as far as I can see. The gun is gonna feel funny when you shoulder that.

I would call up CAI and raise hell about that.

The #1 reason I don't buy anything made by CAI....quality control

Send that thing back asap.I wouldn't even bother shooting it.

Im so tempted to get one of these but keep telling myself, only if i see it in person first to be sure its a good one.

Just give it a good look over and make sure everything is OK before you leave your FFL. If anything is wrong your FFL can send it back.

I would send it back for a good one or my money back.



That thing is beyond the heavy hammer fix procedure.




Sorry considering it is a Yugo and you are from Yugo.




My Century Yugo underfolder M70AB2 is a fine AK.

I want to, but I don't want my first AK to be one I am irked about. I am going to OCD over this. I'll just wait until I get a replacement from CAI.

Update:

Called Century this morning, and they are going to issue me a prepaid return label. Jennifer Trombley was really nice on the phone and polite and professional. I asked her what the return turnaround was and she said 3-4 weeks at the moment. I also asked if I get a replacement that I receive the stock with an Eagle crest, since that's how I originally bought it, and she made the notation on that.

I'll keep you updated.

It's a shame to...


They have had problems for years with canted sights on the Romanian rifles.





Drunk monkeys and all that...

No shit!


Why is it so hard to get the sights straight, regardless of who builds it?
