    Asking so what is not rude. He gives explanation, no info how to get one, no translation or nothing else. So WHAT?

    Me, too.

    It looks really good. The big question: is it as reliable, trouble-free, and easy to maintain as the 47 -- which is a damn good military weapon. Is there any info on how it compares to the M-16 in terms of accuracy?

    I've never liked a vertical fore-grip. It forces the arm down and negatively affects holding stability. For leaning into the weapon I believe it would be much better mounted at 45 degrees.

    Disagree?

    It’s an AK platform, so there’s no doubt it will be reliable.

    The question is how accurate – and at what price.

    A PTR 91 can be had for around $1200, a platform just as reliable with an excellent reputation for inherent accuracy; AR 10s are going for around the same price and are bound to be more accurate than the AK.

    If you want the power of 7.62 NATO and the reliability of an AK, and don’t care about accuracy, this might be worth a look.

    Ak's are plenty accurate.
