    Buy it now that's a great price in this market IMO.

    The Yugos are good quality but use some non-standard parts from what I've heard. They don't have chrome lined barrels. I am not an expert on AKs or anything, just have been reading about them a bit lately.

    If it were me I'd buy it.

    They have better fit and finish that Romanian WASR-10's, I can tell you that much about em. In this market that doesn't seem to be too bad of a choice. Does it have the fixed wooden stock or metal underfolding one?

    Yugo's are good guns, buy it.

    They are built much much heavier than other Ak variants. They are not even in the same class as the WASR rifles IMO. I would compare them more to the Norinco/Polytech.

    Never owned a Yugo, but I have handled and shot one with the ful stock. I do own a WASR and a Norinco.

    Cool! I thought it was good deal. I just wanted to make sure though. I read somewhere that most AK's have 1mm thick receiver and the Yugo's have a 1.5mm thick receiver. Sounds like its built like a tank!

    I have one and it's an excellent AK! If it is a Century, check the front sights to make sure they aren't canted. It is a common problem, but Century will fix them.

    The receivers are 1.5mm thick, and the furniture is longer than "regular" AKs. There are a few other differences (a grenade launcher, for example); but otherwise it is very similar to my Nornico AK-47S.

    That is a great price, as it is what I paid almost two years ago. If you don't buy it, send me the name and number of the seller as I would gladly snag it myself!

    Cheers! M2
