Wow..I know Century products are what they are, but their US Made AK can't really go the distance after 5000 rounds. While accurate, the parts just aren't holding up. The reviewer calls the wood "Snake Sh*t",

AKOU always has thorough reviews and doesn't seem to be influenced or beholden to any manufacturer. Someone may know differently. I'd be curious to know of an affiliation. Thanks Bubacus for posting.~ss

I always watch his videos and he posts frequently on the AKFiles. He's doing a 5k round test next with an Arsenal SLR107. Should be interesting...

From the article, it seems that Rob Ski does have alliances. Those that produce top quality products make the list.:bow::bow: AKOU is loyal to quality...enough said.~ss

I've been watching his videos awhile, they are pretty informative and he definitely knows his AKs. I don't know about dragging them behind a truck, doing pushups on them, and throwing them in a creek, but what the hell?

If they can take his torture test and last through 5k rounds, that's more stress than I'll ever put on any single rifle.

Refreshing to see an immigrant come here and adopt our heritage, instead of jumping on the bandwagon to trash it like so many immigrants I know.

Paint bubbled off the barrel and gas block after 100 rounds.. Arsenals and Bulgarian parts kits have always been known to have shit finishes that rub off with regular cleaning solvents so not much of a surprise there.. I doubt he will find anything other than that though.
