    I don't trust the monkeys that Century employs to put anything together, and if this AK is put together by them, and not just licensed or the Century name stamped on it, I doubt I'll trust their quality control, either.

    huh, I just happened to watch this today. though 4 years old it was what too look for when buying an AK and they did feature some problems that Century ones have had.

    Hopefully like the video said, they have addressed all problems. Will have to see what happens once these new ones are released.

    Agreed.

    I have a Century Golani and it is the only AK that I have ever owned or shot that didn't function correctly - about once every 50 rounds it leaves a spent casing in the chamber. You can see the mark on the rim where the extractor tried to extract it but failed. The bolt goes back and picks up the next round and of course it then jams.

    I am pretty sure the extractor is fine - the spring is very strong and it grabs the rim fine. But I think either the gas port is too large and therefore the bolt goes back before it should or too fast/hard, and/or the chamber is under/oversized and the case sticks at the wrong time. Since the case comes out easily with my fingers and all other rounds fire fine, I think it is the gas port.

    I have heard so much about the crap that Century makes, their QA/QC being hit and miss, I won't ever buy any Century firearms again.
