Love these two, bought them as a pair a while back. Really like the 5.45x39mm cartridge, I prefer it to 5.56, but I frequently hunt with the 7.62x39mm Saiga and always fill my tags. Really no major complaints save for one.......a god damn provision for a muzzle break without cutting off the end barrel shroud and then threading. I'm thinking of just biting the bullet and getting it done. I really hate taking a weapon past the ability to be returned to "factory issued" appearance, but it happens. Did import restrictions play a role? I don't know, I'm not an arms import expert. But they shoot solid.
