Thanks to the mishap in December, parts availability dried up before Jim and company could finish my AK on the original timeline. I had ordered an RD701 from them in August and was looking at end-of-Dec/first-of-Jan delivery. It arrived the day legislation took a bath in the Senate, so I was pretty happy to celebrate. ODG, the bakelite mag was just to look pretty. I ran her a little bit on Friday and was pretty amazed at how much more controllable it feels compared to my other AK platform. Feels lighter, too. Originally thought it was going to be built off a Saiga, but the rifle they Fullerized was an Arsenal -107. Once Jim gets caught up on backorders and they start selling them again I might have to order another. I've been an AR guy for decades and this one might sway me to be a filthy commie lover.
