I definitely did not like PSA's evasiveness in admitting there was a problem with the KS-47 and mag seating/bolt clearance. First there were the admonitions to not hold them by the mag or prevent the mag from resting on the ground when shooting prone followed by them suggesting to stick to PMAGs and to "break them in". I was stupid and had bought Bakelite and steel mags to use in the rifle before getting it to the range and realizing there was an issue. To PSA's credit, they did offer to fix any rifles that had the common mag seating too high issue. But their reputation for slow follow-up plus sloppiness in other rifles they have brought to market (letting the consumer do the quality control) didn't give me confidence that they would correct the issue speedily or to my satisfaction. I have hung on to mine because the rifle does have many admirable features, I can use it with PMAGs, and there is a fix that others have used to limit how high up the mag inserts into the rifle.

At the same time, the M+M M10X-Z attracted me because it has a reputation of broad AK-47 mag compatibility and the company is known to be highly responsive to customer issues. I'm glad to say that I got a little range time this evening (sunlight running to around 7:30pm) with the M10X-Z and it ran wonderfully, knock on wood. I'll put an update in the M10X-Z thread in the rifle subforum when I have time.

Looking forward to it. Was texting with Brownl345 last night and discussing the virtues of the M10X-Z versus the VZ58 and (in general) how screwed we are in MD when it comes to collecting modern military service rifles.

I was thinking about getting a VZ2008 or VZ58 in the past, but ARs spoiled me with their rails and customizability (which made both the KS-47 and M10X-Z appealing in concept). I still might get a VZ58 because of its excellent reputation for reliability.

As per the M10X-Z, if it continues to perform as it did today, I will be very pleased. The 7.62x39 round has the normal bark out of this platform, but very little recoil bite. It feels softer than shooting my CZ Evo Scorpion in 9mm. The trigger as I keep mentioning is sweet.

I mostly was performing a functionality test today with different ammo and different mags. Couldn't test rapid fire because of the range that I was using, but will eventually do this in a commercial facility. Although I was not testing accuracy per se and only shooting 3-shot groups when testing function with different ammo brands, below are examples of what I saw with cheap Tulammo and the 3x optic at 50 and 100 yards. 50 yard results with other ammo brands were pretty comparable. Although this rifle isn't meant to be a precision shooter, I think it could run close to my CZ 527 with a higher magnification optic.



View through the Primary Arms Gen 1, 3x prism scope with ACSS reticle at 50 yards.



50 yard target with Tulammo (squares are 1 inch)



100 yard target with Tulammo (squares are 1 inch)



The rifle was zeroed at somewhere between 50-55 yards (which is the same zero for approximately 250 yards for a generic 7.62x39 round), thus the shots print high at 100 yards.

If I ever had an AK-itch to scratch, it would certainly get the job done.
