    Handled one today. It looks better than a WASR-10, but nowhere near as nice as an Arsenal. Dunno accuracy or reliability, but I suspect they're both acceptable.

    go to interordinance arms and check them out. it is a romanian ak, with a hammer forged , chrome lined bbl, made in Austria I think. once it gets to america, they put on the american furniture, ar flash hider, and other goodies to the origional German specs. they then cut open themagwell to accept regular ak double stack mags. I have read multiple articles on them, and they have been accuracy tested as to be better than the majority of aks out there, much like the Saiga is. So it seem to me, that it is like getting a converted allready saiga, with the german designs, in a pretty accurate ak, for about 400 bucks. I have no idea if any other furniture will work on them, but I like the idea of the front capture pin, for the front handguards, and I also like the idea of the flat bottom handguards; better stabilization off of a rest. It also has built in sling mounts, so that is good.

    oh yeah, it means also that it is 922 compliant , and you won't need any other after market parts.

    But here is the best part, it is made also in 223, 762 nato, and 762 .54 R!!!!! i must have that last one...

    Can you please show us where you see this?

    The barrels are made in Romania. They may be made on Steyr machinery, copies of Steyr machinery, using the Steyr techniques with some other machinery, etc.

    Nowhere in the advertisement or web site do they say "Barrels made in Austria". If they were using original Steyr barrels, you can bet they'd be crowing that fact from the rooftops.


    These are nothing more than WASRs made for InterOrdnance instead of Century.

    I just got one, and I love it. It seems plenty accurate to me, and for all the upgrades it has at $380 it was a helluva deal. Given, I've never shot an AK before it, but I love the thing. It is very simple, but deadly accurate. IMHO, the barrel and grip are the two most important factors in accuracy. This gun has the best accuracy features you could hope for in a $500+ AK but for as little as a WASR. It wrings just about all the accuracy you can get out of a x39. The 5.45 is probably the second best model. Now I just need to decide what optics to mount.

    you are right, it says steyr technology, so I bet they are using their machining and specs, but in Cugir Factory. Still sounds pretty good to me!!!
    much like how Savage supposedly uses Anschutz machining and specs to make their bbls, proly just uses older annie equipment, but a savage still shoots plenty accurate.

    FYI , we have sold tons of these rifles and only had one warranty issue , that is very good for a budget priced rifle, all AK prices are jumping up from the importers $30- $40 per rifle, so expect to see price increases in the next few weeks to months.

    I would like to get one of the 5.56 guns while they are still relatively cheap. Can they take the Bulgarian 5.56 mags? I have a ton of those.

    If these were available 15 mos. ago, I probably would have got one instead of doing my Saiga conversion.

    I like the way they look.

    anybody have comments about the sight radius?

    I didn't realize Atlantic was on board here. Thanks for commenting, sir.
    I won't have $ until mid June, so if everything is going up again much higher before then, oh well. It was worth a look.
    I certainly do like the looks of that rifle, and I already load that caliber, too.

    Yes we have seen prices increases from every AK importer or builder and are a distributor for Inter Ordnanace , they said prices were going to jump $30 - $40 bucks per rifle.

    Atlantic,

    Do you know if the 5.56 guns will work with Bulgarian mags?

    They do not build a 5.56 it is a .223 and the bulgarian mags should work but may need some sanding to fit.

    Thank you Mr. Atlantic; any other tips/tricks, mag works, furniture swaps that you may know of, would all help us out a great deal here. I 'm sure this info, if you could get back to us with any, would be greatly appreciated. especially when the other calibers will be available.

    FYI

    Inter Ordnanace indicates that starting in June, the rifles will be made in the USA....

    Yes we are s distributor for IO and this summer they will begin to produce US AK & Dragunov rifles, this is due the increasing problems & cost of importing the rifles.

    Can the furniture be swapped out for a more traditional AK look?

    Wouldn't it be easier to just buy a traditional AK? This is just a Romanian AK with different furniture.
