First, since this is my first post I just want to say hello to this community and like what I have been reading thus far. I am not a huge collector mainly just a couple of handguns and a .22 a friend talked me into a new rifle and I wanted some avid shooters thoughts on it. It is a Bulgarian ak-74 made by Century and from from what I have read people aren't too crazy about them. What made me buy it was price ($350 new with 2 mags) and ammo price 1080 surplus rds. for $129.00. This is my first assault style rifle and my questions were how accurate and well-made is this rifle and I know 0 about cleaning after using surplus ammo. I figure worst case I spend about a dime a shot to shred some cans in the backyard but hope I'm wrong. Any input is appreciated and I look forward to learning more. Cheers and happy holidays!
