    saw this exact one at the last day of a gun show within 15 minutes of closing. Almost impulse bought it. I’ve never really liked underfolders, but this one felt nice in my hands. I reckon it was the forward grip.

    I glad I didn’t buy it, as they were asking 600 for it

    I would put a different stock on it, but yeah they're nice rifles. Real flamethrowers, too. :coold:

    Looks like a decent gun. Who needs a cheek weld for carbine type "action" shooting? I have an AMD I built in the garage, great shooting gun. It's surprising how much that brake helps.

    If you like the styling of it they're pretty good, I'm just not a fan of most of the bolt on type side folders or VFG's. I do have an AMD kit which I'll probably build one day but with a different stock. A friend has one he complains the VFG position is especially annoying when using 40 rounders when changing mags.

    If I were in a free state and wanted a folder I'd get a saiga conversion or tantal if you dont mind that style stock.

    Very true. Anything over a 20 will interfere with quick mag changes with the front grip. I just keep a bunch of Hungarian 20's around. I have found my stock to lock up VERY solid. My AMD is currently my pack gun as well.

    Cheek weld is not important unless you are actually concerned about aimed precision shots. Whatever it's a AK. :squint:

    Internet gun FTL, crappy side folder stock, vert grip which interferes with mag changes. Not good for shooting, put cool for posting pics on the net to get the noobs wet.

    Well that looks like a proper AK at least. Kind of expensive for a AK, but if it's quality it might be worth it. I'm not framilar with AK prices nowadays but they used to be $300ish for a decent norico, or romanian. Like everything else I'm sure they went up in price.

    I take it you've never trained with a "crappy AK" That post sounds like an ignorant Internet tacticool operator to me....

    No I never trained with a crappy AK. Why the fuck would I do that. I do own a decent AK and I got a lot of trigger time behind a AR.

    Trigger time does not necessarily equal training or competency... :ugh2:

    I just don't get the whole AK hate....

    Well when I say trigger time I'm talking 3 years of shooting 3 gun. I'll actually be up in your area for the R and R racing multigun match next month. I've also taken a tactical carbine class from Crow Carter in Montana as well as a few defensive handgun, tactical shotgun, and comptition oriented classes. Jack Boyd is my current rifle coach.

    I'm not the typical internet noob that you find on the net. I shoot and I shoot a lot and I don't mean the slow fire indoor range stuff.

    Lastly I don't hate on the AK. Very first gun I purchased on my 18th birthday was a Norinco AK many years ago. I'm just not a fan of these garbage bolt of nonsense that takes away the funtionality of a gun. Side folding, under folding, or collapsing stocks are fine if they are reasonably solid, ergonomic, and allow you to repeatably find the sights (cheek weld). Vertical fore grips are also fine if that is your preference and they do not restrict your ability to reload the gun.

    The ones on AMDs do. 30 round mags are doable but bump the VFG, 20 rounders go in much smoother. Also, the AMD folding mech, button is right on the base of your tumb, you can press it and swing the stock open without ever taking your hand off the pistol grip.

    I never got what the hate for folding stocks was, I can bring up my AMD just as fast, or faster than any of my full stock AKs. I prefer the 5.45x39 round, but for 7.62x39, I think the AMD is one of the best options. Ultimak makes a gas tube scope/red dot mount too for the short Hungarian gas tubes, I made my own from an extra gas tube, and it works great.
