You've obviously never heard of the term "compound interest" lol

Keep it, shoot it, smile. I've overpaid for a few in my collection. Oh well.

Biggest thing I would check previously said) but sights and mag well. Ask to put a steel AND plastic tapco mag in. Some guns just will not shoot the plastic mag. Check side to side mag play but also the up and down. Have seen more then a few century AK's with just horrible mag play. So much you have to change out the mag catch. Also check the gas tube is tight against the gas block. Good luck. I'm sure you will still be happy with your purchase after that first mag is empty.

I would return it and chalk it up as a bad learning experience. Buy something that is crafted to perfection.

Good point.... or any of the other on-line auctions. I would also ID the shop to warn others.

no such thing with AK's 9 out of 10 times. I have had many different 'high end' Aks that came with canted FSB, gas block, RSB. Keep in mind the country of origin

People who know more than I do tell me that Poland and E. Germany had the best fit and finish. not that it matters because we can't get those anyway (besides the archer/beryl)

The Cubans make a pretty good one... the cigars aren't too bad either.
