    Mine has been returned too. Only one surplus mag does not fit (not a problem). Rifle feeds and functions as would be expected. Now I dress it up with all my cool AKOU purchases.

      Stores are starting to carry the single stack 40 rd pro mags … I’m staying away. I have no need for a single & it’s higher from the prone. I really like, the PMAG G3’s though. They are strong & firm – good alignment. I had a little mag release issue, with an older Gen1; it over inserted the well or went in crooked, a few times, & became tough to release. It still didn’t malfunction though. I think it was either the pressure place on it or the plastic just didn’t fit right. The gashing issue stopped & I have that one marked. Anyway, the AK went 1K, without any failures – fired every time.

    I like the modern furniture choice; rear lightning cut stock, rounder upper guard & lightning cut ribbed lower guard. Beautiful setup. I headspaced AK’s over-here and I measured about a 1/2 inch (12.7 mm, on the + side) to about 9/16 (14.28 mm) gap, with the CIP “no go” gauge. It was performed at 0 and 1,000 rounds. No difference; it is so small. I also weighed a few items; here are a few:

    Wood upper hand guard 1.1 oz (32 g)
    Wood lower hand guard 2.4 oz (69 g)
    Synthetic Tapco upper hand guard w/o rail 1.4 oz (39 g)
    Synthetic Tapco upper hand guard w/rail 2.1 oz (59 g)
    Synthetic Tapco lower hand guard w/heat shield 5.6 oz (157 g)

    Magpul PMAG Gen 1 6.6 oz (187 g) Empty
    Magpul PMAG Gen 3 7.4 oz (208 g) Empty
    Painted Yugo Metal Mag 13.6 oz (386 g) Empty
    75 rd drum (South Korean) 2.0 lbs. (919 g) Empty

    Well, I’m off to hydrographic dip the PMAG’s and guards in “digital green camouflage.”

    I have found x2 Ak 47’s both used. A $900 Siaga with Archangel fully adjustable stock and a Magpul forend. And then there’s a $600 Wasr 10. Both are very lightly used. I am new to AK47’s and I don’t shoot all the time. Which one should I consider purchasing?

      Saiga is no longer imported…collectors value will keep going up…

    I don’t suppose they gave any explanation for the original failure… or what they had to do to fix it…
