$1300?! And with the 1:10 twist it is limited to 55 gr ammo. Don't think it will be flying off the shelves.

You're right, they likely aren't going to fly off the shelves. However, there appears to be some misinformation on the IO website. They posted it has a 1:10 barrel however a gentleman from the factory contacted me and said they should be 1:9. Even then, $1300 for a bare bones AK is hefty for the current market.
The rifle looks pretty nice but IO Inc has a pretty sleazy reputation. Buyer beware!
1.6 inches at 100 yds with Wolf ammo and iron sights is pretty darn good. Nice shooting.
