I currently have all the necessary parts to build up a Romaninan AK sitting with the lcoal gunsmith, except the Armory receivers are in limbo, so it can't be built. I had the crazy idea that in the meantime maybe i should just ddrop the money for one of the M70 underfolders, and by the time the Armory USA reciever shows up I will have the money to finish the Romy build.

What say all of the Darksiders? My guess is the M708 underfolders will jump up in price pretty fast...

I got one of the underfolders from SOG I think it's great, but I'm not too experienced with AK's. I have a Romy SAR1 and that is my total AK experience before M70.

I think the M70 was a well done build. It shoots, and accuracy was a little better than I expected.

Others may have had problems/issues I haven't.

Field strip it and take some pictures of it so the rest of us can see what she looks like. I would like to see how Century handles some of the build issues like the FCG, attaching the gas piston, the quality of the new barrel and the night sites.....

HAHA!

I stopped by the local ripoff gunstore, and they had one for $600+tax. the stock was a bit loose and the bayonet was jammed on. I decided to go to my local mom and popo gunstore that I frequent (who said they would not get them in) and they had changed their minds...picked it up for $500 out the door. (A tad expensive, but in stock and I like to support the little shop- they have been good to me int he past). The wood and finish are immaculate, and the stock is tighter than a...well, you know! They even had some NIW 75 round romanina drums for $85 out the door, so I picked up one of those too.

FYI, it appears they bead blasted and refinished them without trying to remove the triutium vials/paint, so there are no more night sites left, although the phsyical flip-up metal parts are still intact.. I might have a non-radioactive solution, I'll let you konw how it works out when I try it. In any case, even the gunsmith at the mom and pop store who hates Century builds was amazed at the quality of the gun. He pointed out that you can't even get all the parts to build on of them with a barrel of that quality for $400, much less the cost of having someone put it together.

I'll post pics when I get mine.
