  1. Csspec, I was very happy with the hardness off the steel. I had to remove almost a 1/8 of a inch off the bottom of the rear lug and although it was slow going and I was taking my time I expected that amount of fitment and would happily do it again.

  2. I got my mags in today and all I can say is WOW! Fantastic fit and finish, built like a tank and the pictures and videos dont do them justice. Once I had them in hand I knew I was going to have to remove a lot of material from the rear lug to get it to lock up because I have a longer than average mag release lever. About twenty minutes of quality time with my favorite flat file and I had the first one locking up like a bank vault. I'll fit the other after work tonight and hope to get some rounds through them tomorrow. I have no doubt that they will run fine because the rounds are lined up perfectly with the chamber and hand cycling is flawless. All in all I believe these mags are worth every penny.

  3. And for the record the rifle came with one tapco mag and one rib back mag. The steel mag appeared to have been run over by a tank. The mag body was so dented that I had to drive the follower out to disassemble it. Once I had the follower moving free I tried to load the mag and realized the feed lips had been crushed so close together that a round wouldn't fit between them. So about five minutes of plier work had the mag running perfect. Gotta love a field fixable design.

  4. I took possession of my O Pap today and all I can say is WOW! The build quality is on par or better than my Arsenal and fit and finish is much better than expected. I can also verify that these are remanufactured military rifles due to the fact that I have remnants of the military serial number on the left side of the front trunion. All in all I'm really happy with the rifle.

  5. I wanted another wood furniture AK and love the look of the RPK receiver on the O Pap so I finally ordered one online and it should be at my ffl next week. I know that the wood is probably going to require a little work but I'm curious to know if any of you good people have hands on experience with the rifle and know of any other positives or negatives I should know about, accuracy, etc. Any information would be appreciated.
