They're a Romanian parts kit on a NodakSpud receiver, look at the left side of front trunnion (under the rear sight) and you can probably see a capital "G". Look for front sight cant( mine had a little, fixed it with a punch) and if you a big guy like me ditch the midget buttstock for a NATO length Kvar piece. Also, the barrel is NOT chrome lined because it's a U.S. barrel, so clean accordingly after corrosive ammo.

Otherwise than that, shoot regularly and enjoy!!

Getting my GP 1975 soon. Put some more $ on it yesterday. Seems like the best all around value out there right now.

I am getting mine in a few weeks. I will check it out before I leave the store.

Brought it home on Thursday and shot it for the first time today. I feel like I have finally arrived! This was my first time shooting an AK. Fired 50 Egyptian rounds with no issues. Only problem I am having is chambering the first round. Seems like it will only chamber if you hold and pull it back just right. If you dont hold it just right, the bolt only moves about an inch and stops. Seems a little better now that I have fired it some. May be just a break in issue.

Cleaned and lubed it good. Hand cycling issue has gone away.

I bought a GP1975 a year ago, almost to the day. I've fired about 13 rounds through it since, I really need to see if that one FTF was ammo related or not.

someone mentioned that some designs were dependant of a fired case not a live round but that didn't make any sense to me. every ak i have owned in the past put brass into orbit, live or spent.

TBS, is the ejector in spec? Someone around here should have the measurements.

I'd also disassemble the bolt and thoroughly clean it, paying attention to the extractor.
