    I had a C39v2 for a while and enjoyed it but saw some deformation of the cast bolt & carrier after about 1k rounds that concerned me.

    I think if I were to do it again, I would buy an AK with more reputable quality even if at the higher price point.

    Two best AK’s are Made by IO Inc and anything built from the ground up by Century. You should definitely get those. Having those says you definitely know your AKs!

    Unfortunately, I've actually known people online who believed that...

    For me today it would be just one.

    https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/gun-review-galil-ace/
    An IWI Galil Ace 7.62x39

    It's on my mind because I took a buddy to my range today and he pulled one out.

    With cheap steel case skanky 7.62x39 ammo we were shooting 2-3 inch groups with little trouble which I think is respectable for any AK. Hitting my 4" steel disks at 100 yards was the rule of the day.
    Admittedly it was topped by a superlative 34mm-tube Trijicon 1-8x Accupower that was worth as much as the rifle.

    An original Galil or Valmet are the ultimate AK variants but priced in the stratosphere and with no Picatinni rail would be tough to shoot as well as the handy new IWI offering.

    Pricy. Cry once. Shoot for life.


    Is "match 7.62x39" an oxymoron????
    I'm pretty sure "cheap steel case skanky 7.62x39 ammo" is offering up multi-redundancy.

    I have an Arsenal SAM7R. The price on these keeps going up.

    I see absolutely nothing bad about my Century Arms AK. Seems to be of decent or better quality. Loads, goes bang, extracts and ejects then does it all over every time. The trigger is smoother than on any other AK I have fired and that has been several. It shoots better than the WASR 10 I sold not long ago. Seems of better quality than my sons Bulgarian AK. It has a milled receiver, has a nice set of Magpul furniture (although I wish I had gotten the walnut furniture just because I prefer wood) and a decent finish. It works well with my milsurp east bloc mags from various countries.

    I don't see anything to dislike about it. My guess would be the quality control is as good or at least close to an AK made in any combloc country under a military contract. Although, I have only limited experience with AKs, I figure myself a fairly good judge of a decent quality firearm as opposed to a junker. My Century Arms C39v2 fits the decent quality firearm bill for sure - maybe even surpasses it.

    Here are some links to reviews of the Century Arms C39v2:

    https://www.gun-tests.com/gunreport_detail/9850.html You may need a subscription (a subscription is, I think, well worth the price) to see this one; however, here is the opening from their review: “GUN TESTS GRADE: A Worth the money. If you want a unusually well built and good- shooting AK, this is the one to get.”

    The C39v2 AKs are not the Century Arms AKs of years ago!
