    I saw an ad in JG Sales that they have new Romanian RPKs coming out. Any info on their quality?

    I bought one of the Romanian RPK's from Century through JG Sales about 6 or so months ago. First thing I noticed was the front sight was canted a considerable amount. I was able to fix it myself without much problem however. The second thing I noticed was the bipod was extremely loose in the folded position. It swings back and forth quite a bit under the rifle when folded.

    The good things were the finish was not that bad, the magazines locked up extremely tight, and it came with a metal not polymer 40 round mag and came with a cleaning rod.

    These are probably like most Century guns. That is hit or miss. I have a friend with the exact same gun and his sight is pretty straight and his bipod locks up extremely tight.

    Given the short comings of the rifle I purchased I am still extremely happy with my AES 10b rifle.
