Made in Russia by Izhmash and imported by EAA Corp, Cocoa Florida. Ive put about 200 rounds through this rifle and it performs flawlessly no matter what type of ammo you use. I'm only letting her go because I bought 2 new toys and there is no room left in the gun safe. After I purchased it I installed a Bullet guide (which allows this rifle to accept standard AK47 Magazines), hand-guard Quad Rail, Skeleton Stock w/cheek rest, Tromix enhanced over-sized slide handle & a Dust Cover with Picatinny rail mount (for a scope or red dot). I will also throw in one of my brand new never used Tapco 30rd magazines.
