Can I get any feedback on these items from those who own one?

Do you use it for long range shooting or still mostly for plinking at short ranges?

Do you use the new ammo or the older corrosive ammo and is this item easy to clean?

I've owned a RomakIII for about 8 months now and I enjoy shooting it. Ive used it up to 300 yrds with decent accuracy with vintage 1950's corrosive ammo. With same ammo I can get close to 1 moa at 100 yrds and its really crap ammo. 780 rounds for 70 bucks from ammoman out the door. I would imagine and have heard you can get better accuracy using hand loads but I havent tried as of yet. GOOD ammo is hard to find in 7.62 X 54R. Cleaninging isnt really that bad. Give barrel and gas tube a good rinsing with window cleaner strip rifle rinse with HOT water DRY throughly and relube. Its a fun gun if ya get 1 you'll enjoy it.

they're awesome, but you might want to ask in the Romanian group of the AK forum. They will give you all the answers.

7 cent 147gr CZ, Pole and Hung are all good.

Windex, wait 10min, hot water spray out in utility sink, hair dryer for toasty 100% dry, spray with new oil is the basic routine that has not hurt mine in OH summer humidity.

how are your groupings with military surplus vs. wolf?

Don't let the crude apperance fool you, these guns are capable of extraordinary accuracy. I'm not really a paper shooter, but when a friend and I shot mine a few weekends ago (I just got it), we had no problem hitting a 12" round gong and a 8"x8" steel plate at 450 yards with only crude scope zeroing, with every shot!
