    Does anyone know anything about these? Are these actually from elk river arms or are they the CAI ones built on the elk river arms receivers?

    Would it be worth buying one?

    The new Century Ak-74s are built on Elk River receivers. That being said, the Century M74s are supposed to be nice rifles. The only complaints I have heard are about the handguards and tapcco stock. It certainly looks like that ugly Century handguard. I'd say go for it.
    I've not been a fan of Century since the bodged up a bunch of the CETMEs but I got to check one out the other day and it does look like they did a decent job on these.

    Unless money is really really tight (in which case I wouldn't be buying a tactical carbine anyway), I'd pay 40$ more and get the WASR-2. The Wasr has a chrome-lined barrel, which is very useful for the 5.45x39mm. The extremely high velocity wears out the barrel quickly if it is not chromed.

    Well the one classics had was $450 and if it is the same thing I can get everything from J&G sale cheaper. I figured it couldn't be terrible

    Wheres a place to buy the ak 74 muzzle breaks that are actually for 5.45x39 round rather than the 7.62x39
