Is the AKT-98 the same as the one sold by Centerfire Systems here: http://www.centerfiresystems.com/miva/merchant.mv?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=CSI&Product_Code=AKAGUN22&Category_Code=AKGUN

Any opinions on the one sold by Centerfire?

I just watched Lord of War...

:uhoh:

That's why I'm asking :evil:

Yes, I'm 99% sure that it is, but they seemed to have tried to pawn off some wooden thumbhole stocks on them instead of selling them with the synthetic AK furniture that they are imported with.

I had to sell my AKT-98 after months of trying to get it to be reliable. I have heard of numerous people in my same position but have only seen one positive review on the AKT-98. Great idea and design. but I rarely got through a full mag without some type of jam, stovepipe or fail to eject. Also, ejected rounds often hit the dust cover and get stuck under the FCG which makes the rifle unoperable and you must strip it to clean out the spent .22 casings.

Was that with any type of ammo?

Any type of .22lr ammo and with 3 different mags. It just can't eject the spent cases without getting a few to bounce off the dust cover and back into the receiver. Don't waste your money like myself and many others have done.

Thread on Calguns.net is sorta resurrecting this thread.

The question now is, can a gunsmith get it to work properly? If so, how much would that likely cost?
