I think its the fact that what you get is commercial only. Being a commercial AK I also cant justify handing over the outrageous price they command. Russian AKs depending on what years they were built were either excellent or a little rotten. Join Date Dec Posts 5, I just never have bought into the idea that the chinese arte so high quality.
In fact some of them look downright cheap to me. And lets go back to what the price was on say, a mitchels yugo and an import chinese? Compared to a maddi, or hungarian? Or a modern polish? I think the chinese are not as near the top as a lot of people think Yugo compared to chinese The yugos tend to exhibit above average fit to finish, thicker reciever.
Just no chrome lined barrel. But the chinese used a thinner reciever Like cuban cigars which, by the way, have maruanna in them! The exact same way cuban cigars developed the same popular mystique after they were banned. In the end, as ak's, they are all good guns I just prefer yugo Join Date Jun Posts 1, Chinese AK are made in china junk with a thin receiver and bolt cover and poor quality parts meda from inferior medal compounds.
I must say I like Romy's more than I should: D The Maadi is one of my least favorite. I've never seen a bad Bulgarian or Hungarian, I have seen alot of Polish AK's with canted sights and some Rusisan kit's I've looked at did not show top quality either.
Preban chinese guns seem to be generally of good quality as are the preban yugo's or Maddi's. Post band all the guns tended to take a nose dive in quality except maybe the Bulgarians who seemed to of been able to keep high quality.

No US made receivers or parts. Have one that does'nt work. Keep in mind this is not full auto firearms. Yes the Valmet AK was about the best of the best. I only have a M Hunter myself.
Machined reciver, royal blue finish and walnut stocks. Addicted to guns and want them all before I die. Join Date Dec Posts Not a Legend-had 6 of em and they are great-but this is still unfired.
Added Poly Legend p-grip and darkened the wood. These are very good weapons, built by folks with LOTS of experience. Number "1", Poly Tech Legend. There are many others that deserve recognition though. Join Date Dec Posts 2, Yes, I do like milled forgings The Legend does not show quite the superb workmanship of the first two, but still nice The first Maadis as imported by Steyr in the s are much better than the later post thumbhole stock rifles.
The Chinese AKs are mostly good quality but with more variation in workmanship than the other preban rifles. These were made in different factories with varying levels of quality control Kit guns are dependent on at least 3 factors: That's why ranking them in quality is extremely difficult because of so many factors. It's almost impossible to accurately provide an answer. Join Date Oct Posts Didn't the Finns build a AK type of rifle, that was a very high build quality, and more accurate than most AK style rifles?
Join Date Nov Posts Ok, my simple list: Friends of mine who let me shoot theirs 3. Some of my opinnions. I cannot say for sure which is the best. Following list is not ranking by any means. Downside is too complicated manufacturing and finishing methods during the process and and too tight tolerances for mass produced military weapon.
Lack of chromed barrel and chamber is a big minus. Cheap and combat tested. Some people say that there is a lot of variety in the quality between the different batches made by the chinese. Most of the rifles bought by the finnish army were very poorly finished and accuracy was poor with finnish ammunition.
All the saigas AK in 7. Quality is reasonable and at least the Mk3 has very good akm ergonomics. Some people say that receiver is made from too thin stampings but so far I haven't heard any complains that somebody have had any breakages. Minuses are incompatible magazines with AK-standards, poor accessories and variable outfit with different x39mm commercial models. Excellent thing is that all the Saigas have the factory made test-firing group result mentioned in the manual in theory, this makes the hand picked selection possible between different guns if the vendor allowa it.
Arsenals sold in Finland are very well made with milled receivers and are sold with excellent accessoriesa and thumb-safety if compared to the saigas. Minuses are poor fitting with the parts in some guns which have made the accuracy horrible and you can't practically investigate that before buying the gun and test shooting it. I've been shooting with m64s and m70s during my service in Kosovo.
I don't have so much experience with these weapons, but at least I can say that the finish was very good and the guns very reliable and durable during our intensive "full-auto plinking sessions". With one m70 we shot about - rounds in a row without any problems with full auto. Guys, about 25 of us, one platoon, were standing in a line with two full 75 round drums each.
Drums were shot off with full auto fire and when the previous shooter finished, the gun was passed to the next guy. Originally Posted by rayman1.

My first semi was a Cetme and it shoots ok, i guess i'm one of the few who got a good one. The saiga in is my third rifle in and probably my last too i'm very pleased with it.
Maybe its not fair comparing a brand new russian izhmash saiga against the other well used ak's.
