How is this the first we're hearing about this?

And from Facebook?

Yikes.

This has potential, and I'm looking forward to it.

I'll take one if the AK comes with that model.

That is some good news, I look forward to an AK-108 and AK-12!

Will need cold hammer forged barrel.

I could see them being comparable to Arsenal in price though.
Link Posted: 1/20/2015 7:08:56 PM EST
BOOM!

That's a BOMB dropped. Good thing I'm not expecting to buy an AK until 2016. I hope they get their production going by then so I can see some good reviews hopefully.

I don't think they'll be too worried.

Arsenal has a lock on the Bulgarian rifles, which are arguably better than the Russian AK's and some people will just prefer them to a Russian.

Century will very likely keep their prices lower and sell to the people who won't buy a more expensive AK.

Love me some free market. Jug-ear says no imports, fine, they'll just make them here. Problem solved.
Link Posted: 1/20/2015 7:17:16 PM EST
I will sell some shit to get a legit AK-101/102 5.56 AK made in USA.

Missed out on the SLR-106 sales a few years back.
Link Posted: 1/20/2015 7:17:29 PM EST
Screw Obama and his BS sanctions that don't do a damn thing to help the Ukraine.

The only reason Obama banned import of Russian arms is, because his administration saw a chance to screw US gun owners.
Link Posted: 1/20/2015 7:18:33 PM EST
I will gladly take the model.
That being said it will be interesting to see what becomes of this and of course the price.

Who knows being made here might improve the accuracy of these things.
Link Posted: 1/20/2015 7:19:38 PM EST
Saiga 9? Yes Please!


I'd love to see a US made SVD and MP443 as well.
Link Posted: 1/20/2015 7:21:08 PM EST
Anyone know where they are or will be located?

Don'tcha just wish you had a time machine so you could send that picture back 50 years and make people on both sides of the Iron Curtain shit their pants?

If they bring Russian quality control with them, Century has nothing to worry about.

Which in turn led to them building a plant in America. I'd say he helped usher in a whole new era of AK ownership in the US.

Thanks Obama!

I own examples of all three. The Romy is less than the Bulgarian and the Russian. The later two are pretty much indistinguishable in terms of quality.
So i submit it is arguable.
